Euro NCAP UpDate

From 2015 onwards, numerous changes based on the Roadmap 2020 have been implemented in the rating protocols and we are still facing some deep impacts in passive safety testing: After 2020 the impact energy for the side crash will be significantly increased and the far-side occupant protection will be assessed. Furthermore, the stationary barrier in the frontal offset crash will be replaced by a mobile barrier and the THOR dummy will be used for the first time.

The active safety working groups also define further scenarios: from 2018 on, new AEB tests will be introduced for cyclists and pedestrians. In addition, the AEB Car-to-Car tests will be expanded and evaluated using the grid method. In 2020 further AEB scenarios will be added.
