Volkswagen Wins 3 Best-in-class Awards
Staff at Breeze Volkswagen are delighted the Polo, T-Roc and Arteon have been recognised with three Best In Class awards from Euro NCAP, the European New Car Assessment Programme that provides consumer information on the safety of new cars.
Each year, Euro NCAP publishes a list of those cars that have performed best in their respective categories. Star ratings cannot be compared directly between different categories of vehicles, so a ?Best in Class? is published showing which vehicles have performed better than their competitors. As the requirements for each star rating become tougher each year, the ?Best in Class? comparison is made only within each calendar year so that all vehicles are assessed against the same standards.
To define the Best in Class, a calculation is made of the weighted sum of the scores in each of the four areas of assessment: Adult Occupant, Child Occupant, Pedestrian and Safety Assist. This sum is used as the basis for comparison of the vehicles. Cars qualify for ?Best in Class? based only on their rating with standard safety equipment. Additional ratings based on optional equipment are excluded.
2017 was Euro NCAP?s busiest-ever year with nearly seventy models assessed.
Now Euro NCAP have announced the year?s best performers and Volkswagen emerges with great credit with winners in three categories: the Polo in the supermini class, T Roc in the small off-road category and the prestigious Arteon in the executive class.
Nick Rees, General Sales Manager at Breeze Volkswagen said: ?To win best-in-class in three different categories is a great achievement and underlines Volkswagen's commitment to providing the highest levels of safety to it's customers. We're proud to be able to offer these award-winning models to customers at our Tower Park showroom."
