Our Top 4 NCAP Safety Approved Family Cars

Posted on 12 Nov 2018

We want to know the vehicle we are putting our family in checks all the boxes in regards to safety, so following NCAP we have selected our top 4 Family sized vehicles that abide by these safety guidelines.

The NCAP review is broken down into Adult Safety, Child Safety, Pedestrian Safety and Safety assist options, these categories are marked out of 100 but all of the vehicles we have selected have been awards an overall 5* NCAP Safety Rating!

Ford Focus 1.0 Titanium 5dr Manual

NCAP Categories from 2018

Adult Occupant 85%
Child Occupant 87%
Pedestrian         72%
Safety Assist      75%

*Applies to Ford Focus Range

The All-new Ford Focus Titanium model may have slightly lower ratings but still displays figures of an impressive standard. The Focus can reach speeds of 124mph with 123bhp even though it features that 1.0L EcoBoost engine. The EcoBoost is known for its economical numbers with CO2 emissions as low as 107g/km and 54 miles to the gallon. Similarly, to the Arona this 1.0L also has a 6-speed gearbox and 5 seats, this model may hold your family but it would be beaten on pulling power for a 1.0L! The new range of Ford Focus’s have not long debuted on our roads but you can pick up a used one starting at £16,600 (Nearly new).

Child Occupant 81%
Pedestrian         78%

So, when it comes to economical this vehicle may not be your car of choice with CO2 emissions of 154g/km, sitting a lot higher than our other contenders.

Mazda CX-5 2.0 2WD Sports Nav+ 5dr Manual

NCAP Categories from 2017

Adult Occupant 95%
Child Occupant 80%
Pedestrian         78%
Safety Assist      59%

*Applies to Mazda CX-5 Range

The Mazda CX-5 is a slightly larger option, still holding 5 seats the vehicle has a larger exterior to its contenders. This larger body is carried by a 2.0L engine with 162bhp with 44mpg. The 6-speed gearbox will no doubt chauffeur the family around when needed but would also be capable of those longer more gruelling journeys without a struggle. The CO2 emissions sit slightly below that of the Stinger at 145g/km making it slightly more economical but the two are very different model types so it definitely down to driver preference. The CX-5, like the Arona, would be another SUV/crossover option with the added safety pack.
