Not bad at all, mix that with good driving habits and overall you're going to be quite safe on the road.

Seems like the biggest difference is that the Euro NCAP "has harsher marking standards on preventative safety technology such as Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB)"

I think one thing they're more strict on than the U.S. is on pedestrian safety, that's one I have noticed a lot. Just not sure if it has impacted vehicle design but that would be one of the things.

So The autonomous braking focus should be a big thing. No reason why companies shouldn't make that standard, it saves lives. I guess that the Euro and Australian tests will become the same in 2018 though, so perhaps the whole issue is moot.

They should make the auto stop as standard a requirement for all safety tests. Yes it's going to cost car companies a bit more to produce the base model but it's for the safety of drivers and pedestrians.
Hope this is something that every NCAP test sets as a basic requirement for future tests and score cars lower for not having it as standard.
