2013 Range Rover gets 5 Stars for Safety Performance from Euro NCAP

Article by Anita Panait, on November 29, 2012

The all-new Range Rover was conferred 5 Stars for Safety Performance by Euro NCAP, the highest award achievable for Safety standards within Europe. The 5 Stars for Safety Performance underscores Land Rover’s commitment to engineering excellence.

John Edwards, Land Rover Global Brand Director, said that the Range Rover is the second vehicle launched in as many years that was awarded by Euro NCAP, with the Range Rover Evoque receiving one in 2011.

Euro NCAP has significantly raised the Pedestrian Protection target in 2012, with Land Rover working hard to achieve it.

As a result, the all-new Range Rover was able to achieve one of the highest ever scores for Pedestrian within its vehicle category. Edwards remarked that it was an “incredible achievement” and a testament to the dedication of the carmaker’s engineering team.

The all-new Range Rover also demonstrates Land Rover’s commitment to sustainability. The new model is around 420Kg lighter than its predecessor and has posted excellent results for occupant protection.

The all-new Range Rover achieved maximum points in numerous areas within the Euro NCAP tests. Land Rover is currently exploring new technologies to use on future models to further improve Safety Protection, particularly Pedestrian Protection.
