Great Wall Motors ute fails safety grade

1 MinutesBy NZ Trucking magazineMay 1, 2017

In the latest round of information released by the Australasian New Car Assessment Programme (ANCAP), the Great Wall Motors Steed 4×2 petrol dual cab failed to meet even basic standards during its crash test, achieving a low 2 star safety rating.

Lower and upper leg injury was likely in a crash due to excessive footwell deformation, pedal displacement and separation of footwell panels. In addition, steering column components were a potential source of knee injury for the driver while dash components could cause injury to both driver and passenger.

Top ANCAP results were achieved by the Honda Civic (sedan and hatch) and the Hyundai i30.

ANCAP is supported by all Australian motoring clubs, the New Zealand Automobile Association, the Australian Government, the New Zealand Government, Australian state and territory governments, the Victorian Transport Accident Commission, NRMA Insurance and the FIA Foundation.
