The European New Car Assessment Programme (Euro NCAP) has released its latest round of results for three MPVs – Citroen SpaceTourer, Peugeot Traveller and Toyota ProAce – that are essentially the same car underneath, but with different styling on the outside.

We first covered “the three musketeers”, which is the result of a collaboration between PSA Peugeot Citroen and Toyota that began in 2012, earlier this month. All three MPVs share the same platform and technical features, but full details will only be revealed when the trio debuts at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show.

Even though all three automakers have yet to reveal any technical information on their respective MPVs, the all three Euro NCAP reports reveal that the test model, a ‘Navette’ variant, packs a 2.0 litre diesel engine and tips the scales at 1,900 kg.

As for the Euro NCAP results themselves, and surprise, surprise, all three MPVs managed to score a five-star rating from the safety performance assessment programme, with an adult occupant protection score of 87% (from a possible 100%) across the board.

Child occupant protection meanwhile, scored 91% and pedestrian protection registered a respectable 64%. As for safety assist systems, the Euro NCAP gave all three vehicles a score of 78%.

Among the safety features found in the three MPVs include six airbags (dual frontal, side head, side chest), ESC, speed assistance system, and rear Isofix child seat mounts. Additional safety features like automated emergency braking (AEB) and lane assist system are available as options.
