The myth that SUV???s were somehow safer than the average well engineered sedan was debunked years ago and its been continually proven through crash testing that SUV???s are not always the best place to be in the event of an accident???until now. The latest crop of compact SUV???s are rewriting the rule book, with many achieving four star safety ratings in Euro NCAP tests and in the case of the Nissan Tiguan and Land Rover Freelander/LR2 the much prized five star rating.

In the latest round of Euro NCAP testing the new Nissan X-Trail has emerged with a very competent four star rating for adult, child and occupant protection. Points were lost due to injuries being sustained by passenger legs and the driver???s neck during frontal impacts.

Pedestrians being hit by cars is never going to result in an acceptable outcome and the X-Trail is no trail blazer in this regard, scoring a lowly two points out of five for pedestrian protection. Unfortunately, the design of the X-Trails bonnet is not ideal for soaking up pedestrian impacts.
