Mitsubishi Lancer Sportback

The Mitsubishi Lancer Sportback has been awarded its top 5-star rating under NCAP's new, stricter test regime which focuses on the vehicle's overall protection performance.

The new rating scheme uses a weighted score, combining all aspects of a car's safety performance: adult (50%), child (20%) and pedestrian (20%) protection assessment results with the availability of driver assistance devices (10%). A minimum score of 70% overall is necessary to achieve a 5-star rating. To qualify for inclusion, the devices must be fitted, as standard across 85% of the 2009 model range.
