Euro NCAP (New Car Assessment Program) has named the Qoros 3 Sedan as the best ‘Small Family’ car of 2013 after awarding it with a maximum five-star rating in September. The Qoros 3 Sedan is the first car developed in China that received five-star ratings from Euro NCAP. The sedan logged high scores in all four areas of the Euro NCAP tests.
Its overall score of 88 percent was also the highest achieved by any vehicle tested in 2013. “The Euro NCAP result demonstrates the high level of design, engineering and production quality that we have achieved with the Qoros 3 Sedan,” Volker Steinwascher, Vice Chairman of Qoros, said. He said that reaching world-class standards was their objective since the beginning.
Michiel van Ratingen, Euro NCAP Secretary General, congratulated Qoros for being able to achieve the highest safety record with the Qoros 3 Sedan.” The Qoros 3 Sedan scored the best result for Adult Occupant protection at 95 percent in Euro NCAP’s 2013 program – thanks to its robust passenger safety cell proven to be effective in minimizing impact to passengers during front-end, side impact and pole impact collisions.
The Qoros 3 Sedan is equipped in the rear with ISOFIX child seat anchorages with top tether hooks, and a front passenger airbag disconnect switch, allowing it to score maximum points for Child Occupant protection at 87 percent in the front and side crash tests. [source: Qoros Auto]
