cncap logo C NCAP releases results of this years first batch of crash testsC-NCAP has released the result of the first batch of crash tests in 2012. A total of ten cars were crash tested, and nearly every car earned five stars.

C-NCAP’s scores are based on three crash tests: a full-wrap frontal collision against a rigid barrier at 50 km/h, a frontal collision at 40% offset against a deformable barrier at 56 km/h and a side impact test at 50 km/h.

It was the first time a car made by Taiwan-based Luxgen was tested, the Luxgen 7 SUV. Three other Chinese cars got respectable five star ratings. The BYD G6 was the only car that didn’t achieve a five stars, narrowly missing the required score for a five star rating by 1.1 points.

This will likely be the second to last batch of cars tested and evaluated according to the current standards. A new and stricter standard will be used starting this summer. It will raise the 40% offset frontal collision speed to match Euro-NCAP’s 64 km/h, add a rear impact (whiplash) test and new dummies.

    I am a foreigner, living in China (Chengdu). I am thinking of buying a car and got
    focussed on the BYD Sage. However, if you look at the configuration of the car, and
    also the techinical data of the engine…..it is hard to believe that, for this price, the quality is good. Can you say something about that

    many thanks
