Tesla Autopilot Ranked 6th In Euro NCAP Assisted Driving Tests

It was actually the top performer in the Safety Backup category, but lags behind others in driver engagement.

Euro NCAP just released the results of its 2020 Assisted Driving Tests, which compared 10 models’ highway assistance systems to determine which is the best.

The agency has developed a dedicated test and assessment protocol, and a grading system. It is divided into two main areas:

“A unique grading system – similar to the fivestar safety rating – helps consumers understand the conclusions of the tests and compare assistance performance at the highest level. Each car falls into one of four categories: Entry, Moderate, Good and Very Good.”
