The Vauxhall Zafira Tourer and Astra GTC have both been awarded the maximum five star safety rating by independent consumer organisation Euro NCAP for their safety and accident prevention performance.
Euro NCAP's test categories covers passenger safety for adults and children, as well as pedestrian safety and driver assistance systems, with both vehicles achieving excellent results. Their body stability was also praised and the safety belts for child passengers offer high levels of protection.
"We are proud of the latest five-star results," said Rita Forst, Vice President of Opel/Vauxhall Engineering. "Passenger safety has always been high on our agenda, and we are pleased not only to have met the safety standards with Astra GTC and Zafira Tourer, but to have surpassed them."
Euro NCAP comprises representatives from EU transport ministries, automotive associations and car insurers, who undertake tests which examine the risk of injury to passengers and pedestrians in different crash situations. The rigorous test standards are higher than the minimum required by EU law, and its crash simulations include full-frontal and lateral collisions with other vehicles and fixed objects.
The Vauxhall Zafira Tourer will be available to order from 1st November 2011.
