A new round of crash-safety testing from the Australasian New Car Assessment Program (ANCAP) has seen top scores handed down to a trio of vastly different offerings.

Buyers considering the small new Mercedes-Benz A-Class hatch, the big Range Rover SUV and the light-footed Toyota 86 coupe can now tick off '5-Star ANCAP safety rating' on their shopping lists.

"It doesn't matter what type of car consumers are looking to buy. There's now a multitude of makes, models and car types which have achieved the maximum 5 star ANCAP safety rating," ANCAP Chairman, Mr Lauchlan McIntosh said.

All models in the A-Class and 86 ranges carry the top rating, while the Range Rover's score applies to models equipped with the TDV6 engine - TDV8 and petrol variants remain 'unrated'.

Standard safety features with the A-Class hatch include nine airbags, collision warning, fatigue detection and Mercedes' Pre-Safe system, designed to prepare the vehicle for an imminent collision.

The little Merc also features an 'active bonnet', designed to raise slightly when a pedestrian impact is detected, creating a buffer zone between the person and the engine below.

Safety features available with the 86 include dual frontal, side chest and side head (curtain) airbags and a driver knee airbag, and emergency brake assist.

The 86's sister model, the Subaru BRZ, also holds a 5-Star ANCAP safety rating.

For the Range Rover, standard safety equipment includes dual frontal, side chest and side head airbags (curtains), along with antilock brakes, electronic brake distribution and electronic stability control. Advanced seat belt reminders are fitted to all seats.
