The Australasian New Car Assessment Program (ANCAP) has released its latest round of safety test results (derived from Euro NCAP testing) for three SUVs – the BMW X1, Jeep Renegade and Volkswagen Tiguan.

All three models managed to obtain good scores in each of the physical crash tests, with the X1 and Tiguan scoring 36.66 and 34.48 points (out of 38 points), respectively, in adult occupant protection. The Renegade meanwhile, scored 15.41 points (out of 16 points) in the frontal offset test. Standard safety kit on all models include dual frontal, side chest and side curtain airbags.

The two German models were praised for including active safety systems as standard, including autonomous emergency braking (AEB) and lane support systems. These systems are not offered on the Renegade, although the Jeep offers good structural performance in many collision simulations.

The Tiguan (AWD variants) and Renegade (FWD variants built from May 2016) have each been awarded the latest 2016 datestamped rating. However, the X1, which was launched in Australia last year, gets a 2015 datestamp instead.
