The latest round of Euro NCAP testing has seen 5-Star safety ratings awarded to the Mazda CX-5, new BMW 3 Series, second-generation Hyundai i30, and Peugeot’s new 208 light hatch.

With the Mazda and BMW are already on Australian shores, and the i30 and 208 on their way, these top scores bode well for local safety ratings, which are yet to be finalised for these models.

The Euro NCAP report also describes significant improvements for all four carmakers where pedestrian protection is concerned.

The 3 Series scored 78 percent for pedestrian protection, with the i30 rating 67 percent, and the CX-5 and 208 following with 64 percent and 61 percent respectively.

Under Euro NCAP testing criteria, an overall 5-Star rating can only be achieved with a minimum score of 60 percent for pedestrian protection.

The CX-5 was the only car of the four to score maximum points in the side impact test, while the i30 delivered strong results for child occupant protection.

The 2012 Hyundai i30 goes on sale in Australia this week (watch for TMR's 'first drive' review), and the 208 is expected to arrive later this year.
