About the Tests Test Results Au Pe Each vehicle model tested in Australian NCAP is subjected to an offset crash To simplify the crash test results and the pedestrian impact results, ANCAP has test into a barrier, a side impact test and a pedestrian impact test. assigned an occupant rating and a pedestrian rating in stars to each vehicle A pole test is optional. model.
