NCAP conducts various safety tests on vehicles in order to determine how severe injuries may be should there be a crash. A range of tests are available including the Frontal Impact test, the Whiplash test and the Car to Car Side Impact test. Each test makes use of crash test dummies which are designed to give out readings indicating how protected passengers will be from injury if the car should crash. According to NCAP tests the safest small SUV is the Vauxhall Mokka with a 100% score for the Safety Assist System on board. This system is designed to prevent crashes by keeping drivers informed of their speed in certain areas. The Vauxhall Mokka also scored highly for adult and child safety making it a great car to take on family trips. The Safety Assist mechanism has a speed limiter function and the car has a total of six airbags making it one of the safest vehicles around. However, the safety of the car does not protect passengers from other drivers on the road and accidents still could potentially occur.
Keeping safe on the road
If you are a cautious driver, it is very unlikely that you will be the victim of a serious road accident. However, other drivers may not be so cautious so be sure to pay attention to the road at all times. Listen to the instructions given by the Safety Assist System to keep to the speed limit and be aware of any pedestrians on the road. Because of the high protection this car offers, in the event of an accident, your injuries are unlikely to be severe. In the event of a crash caused by another driver, you may be able to make a claim for any injuries you do sustain. Call a compensation claims company like Accident Advice Helpline for assistance.
