The EuroNCAP has created two new tests. They are the AEB (Automatic Emergency Braking) City test, and the AEB Inter-Urban test. The first is conducted at speeds between 10 to 50 km/h, where EuroNCAP only evaluates the automatic braking function on the tested vehicle.
The second is conducted at speeds between 30 km/h and 80 km/h, where EuroNCAP evaluates both the automatic braking function and the forward collision warning function in three different driving scenarios.
The Mercedes-Benz E-Class aced both tests. This is even more impressive when you learn that two of the other seven cars tested were Volvos, which have a reputation of being the safest cars in the world.
You can check out a video of the two tests below.
