The new Vauxhall Corsa has been awarded a four star rating in the latest round of Euro NCAP safety testing, but has fallen short of achieving top marks.

The four star mark mirrors the score achieved by its predecessor when it was tested by Euro NCAP five years ago.  With Vauxhall now part of the PSA Group, the new Corsa shares much of its underpinnings with the latest Peugeot 208, which also earned a four star rating from Euro NCAP earlier this year.

The new Corsa performed strongly in three out of four categories tested by Euro NCAP, but missed out in the Safety Assist category by the narrowest of margins.  It missed the top rating in that category by a single percentage point, ruining its chances of a full five star overall mark.
