The Euro NCAP test results for the new Nissan X-Trail have been released today, and you would expect has scored the maximum five-stars.
It scored 86% for adult occupant, 83% child occupant, 75% pedestrian and 75% safety assist. This compares to the Toyota RAV which was also tested in 2013 and which again scored a five star rating – 89% Adult Occupant, 82% Child Occupant, 66% Pedestrian and 66% Safety Assist.
The X-Trail is equipped with Forward Emergency Braking, Traffic Sign Recognition, Lane Departure Warning, Moving Object Detection, Blind Sport Warning and High Beam Assist.
The Forward Emergency Braking utilises a front facing radar that scans the road ahead – first alerting the driver of pending doom and if no action is taken the car will start to brake.Published 1 October 2014
