How safe are small cars?
Safety credentials should always be front of mind for those considering a new car, whether big or small.
One big advantage is that our small cars have been fitted with the latest safety technology to make your drive safer and more enjoyable.
It might sound obvious to some, but the age of a car makes a big difference when it comes to its safety rating. In recent years, cars have been fitted with a greater number of safety features as standard – a fact that goes a long way in both preventing crashes and limiting damage in the event of an accident. As a result, AYGO benefits from a 4 star NCAP rating and the Yaris has a 5 star NCAP rating.
