Car safety rating agency ANCAP has tested two of the most talked about cars of 2017.
The Si, GT Line and GT variants are the only specifications to receive the thumbs up leaving the 200s and 330S with a mediocre three-star rating.
These variants are devoid of active safety features such as autonomous emergency braking (AEB), and lane keep assist as well as rear seat belt pre-tensioners and load limiters.
Meanwhile the Jaguar F-PACE passed with flying colours across all model grades possessing AEB throughout the range and forward collision and lane departure warning systems.
The SUV achieved high scores in all physical crash tests and performance assessments.
ANCAP Chief Executive James Goodwin says they hope Kia will amend the low safety rating for the select Kia Stinger models.
“Customers should feel let down that important safety features are being left and we urge Kia to offer the same safety specification across all variants to ensure the best safety outcomes.”
