The Fiat 500 received five stars in adult occupant protection, plus three stars for child occupant protection and two for pedestrian protection.
Renault’s Twingo, the other supermini result released today, received a four-star result in adult occupant protection. No child protection rating is available for the Twingo as there was not enough space to fit Renault’s recommended child restraints in the rear seats with the front seats set to Euro NCAP’s test position for adults.
The Cee’d is the first Kia to get five stars since Euro NCAP first tested this brand in 2003. It received four stars for child protection and two for pedestrian.
Peugeot’s forthcoming 308 received five stars in adult occupant protection, four stars for child protection and a higher result in pedestrian protection than the Kia Cee’d, with a three star score.
The car goes on sale on September 20, replacing the 307.
