Euro NCAP: Facelifted Aygo, 107 and C1 get 3-star safety rating

The facelifted versions of the Toyota Aygo, the Peugeot 107 and the Citroen C1 have recently received a 3-star safety rating from Euro NCAP during the latest crash tests.

Back in 2005, the Toyota Aygo and its sisters, the Peugeot 107 and the Citroen C1, have achieved a four-star safety rating after being tested by Euro NCAP but if you were expecting their facelifted versions to achieve at least the same number of stars than you’re in for a big surprise, because the three models have been awarded with a three-star safety rating after they were tested by the Euro NCAP once again.

Things aren’t looking so well for the Toyota Aygo, the Peugeot 107 and the Citroen C1 considering the fact that their rivals, models like the Volkswagen Up! or the Fiat 500 have managed to achieve a maximum five-star rating, while the Kia Picanto, the Hyundai i10 and the Ford Ka were awarded with four stars. The three models were criticized because they had “failed to keep abreast of latest safety developments and standards” because they don’t have any side impact airbags or ESC (Electronic Stability Control) as standard equipment. Toyota will fit, in response to the Euro NCAP’s verdict, side head curtain airbags, side thorax, passenger seatbelt reminder, ISOFIX mounts and ESC to the Aygo on models sold in Europe by July 2013. Peugeot and Citroen won’t add the extra features.
