    Previous generation safety still fitted to today’s new cars
    Australia and New Zealand’s independent consumer voice on vehicle safety is strongly reminding new car buyers and fleet purchasers to check the ANCAP SAFETY rating before purchase, with two zero-star ratings published today.
    Local testing of the MG 5 sedan and Mahindra Scorpio SUV has shown both models unable to achieve a safety rating any higher than zero stars due to a range of limitations – in both physical crash protection and active collision avoidance performance.  In many areas, this was due to the fundamental omission of safety features that have been commonplace in new cars for many years.

    How safe was the car you drove in the 1990s?
    Taking stock of the past 30 years of independent vehicle safety testing, ANCAP reflects on the vehicle models first rated when testing began in 1993.
    Commonplace on Australia's roads at the time were the Ford Falcon, Mitsubishi Magna, Holden Commodore and Mazda 626 – just to name a few.
    These, together with the Honda Accord, Subaru Liberty, Nissan Pintara, Toyota Camry and Volvo 940 all featured in the first round of safety ratings released in 1993, in an effort to inform consumers about the safety features, or lack of, that were fitted to their everyday drives.
