Euro NCAP today releases the safety ratings of two smaller SUV’s: the new Citroën C5 Aircross and the Range Rover Evoque


After the three large off-roaders tested in February, Euro NCAP today releases the safety ratings of two smaller SUV’s: the new Citroën C5 Aircross and the Range Rover Evoque.

The C5 Aircross is the latest addition to Citroën‘s Aircross family of crossover compact SUV’s and replaces the C4 Aircross which stopped production in 2017. The C5 Aircross offers most safety equipment as standard, including a forward-looking camera to enable driver assist functions, and has achieved 4 stars in Euro NCAP safety tests.

The rating increases to 5 stars with the optional Safety+ Pack that adds a radar sensor to the camera to enhance the performance for AEB City, AEB Inter-Urban, AEB Pedestrian and adds cyclist detection. The recommended Safety+ pack is available in all markets and on all variants.

The new, second-generation Range Rover Evoque was revealed last year amid high anticipation. Even though the popular luxury SUV looks similar to the first-generation vehicle tested by Euro NCAP in 2011, it is fully new under the skin. In safety terms, particularly the progress made in the area of vulnerable road user protection, with the adoption of an active bonnet and AEB for pedestrian and cyclist detection, are noteworthy and significant for this category of vehicle.

Matched by an equally solid performance in other areas, the Evoque earns five stars in our latest safety tests.

Both the C5 Aircross and Evoque were tested as diesel models, predicted to be the best sellers, despite the drop in popularity of this engine type in Europe. The ratings however are also valid for other variants listed on Euro NCAP’s website.

All-new Jaguar F-Type Coupe & R



5-liter supercharged V8 engine and will reach 60 mph in 4.0 seconds, and a top speed of 186 mph (electronically limited)2. The F-TYPE S Coupe and F-TYPE Coupe are powered by 3-liter supercharged V6 engines in 380hp and 340hp forms respectively, giving 0-60 mph in 4.8/5.1 seconds and top speeds of 171/161 mph2.

The F-TYPE Coupe visual message is defined by three key ‘heart lines’, that visual message beginning with the formidable grille. It is from the twin ‘shark gill’ openings that sit either side of the grille that the essential first heart line – which mirrors the design of the F-TYPE Convertible – flows and begins to take shape. Running up through the headlamp, and accentuated by the LED ‘J blade’ signature running lamps, the line then arcs up over the front wheel arch before dropping elegantly as it runs through the door, washing out into the muscular rear haunch.

The second heart line begins at the rear edge of the door, swelling outwards and upwards to create a visually strong wheel arch, emphasizing the car’s rear-wheel drive layout, before dropping vertically through the tail lamp ...
