With the change in the rating of safety assist systems, many old cars tested with 5 stars would be downgraded to 4 stars.

It usually works that way. Older things getting lesser score in newer tests.

It’s called progress. 🙂

If this car would do the test in 5 or 10 years it would probably get less than 4 stars too.

I like details in the Euro NCAP test report vs. what NHTSA posts. eg: color-coded detais on dummies and vehicle showing rating by location. 🙂
