ANCAP does not warrant or represent that a 5 star rated vehicle will protect the driver and any passengers in all types of accidents.
It is not appropriate to compare ANCAP safety ratings across vehicle categories, particularly if there is a large weight difference. The reason is that in car-to-car crashes, the heavier vehicle has a theoretical advantage (due to the physics of the crash). Similarly, a higher ride height might be an advantage in a car-to-car crash. However in single vehicle crashes, such as with solid fixed objects, the weight might no longer be an advantage. Also some small cars do remarkably well in crashes with larger vehicles as they have very strong passenger compartments and advanced occupant restraint systems and these features can make up for the mass disadvantage.
