TopGear.com.ph Philippine Car News - Qoros 3 is first-ever Chinese car to earn Euro NCAP five-star rating

The Qoros 3 has done what no other Chinese car before it could do, and that's to achieve a five-star rating overall in the latest round of Euro New Car Assessment Program crash tests.

According to Euro NCAP, the Qoros 3 received high scores in all four areas of assessment, with its adult occupant protection scoring 95% and its child occupant protection receiving87%. The car's pedestrian protection feature registered77%, whileits safety assist system got81%.

Based on the Euro NCAP's findings, the passenger compartment remained stable in both front and side crash tests, protecting even children in their safety seats by minimizing the likelihood of dangerous head contact with parts of the car's interior.

The Qoros 3's bumper also provided good protection to a pedestrian's legs, while the protection provided by the hood "was mostly good or adequate."

The car's electronic stability control also reportedly met Euro NCAP's test requirements, while a driver-set speed limitation system supposedly also comes standard with the car.

The Qoros 3, as it is now known, was first reported as the Qoros GQ3 at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show last March.

    seems the chinese manufacturers were able to catch up early in terms of safety from abysmal (or fatal) test results less than 10 years ago. I hope in terms of reliability, they will be comparable to american, korean or Japanese brands.

    baka nilagyan lang nila ng reinforcements yung test unit. alam mo naman yang mga yan, iba ang sample sa actual.

    It's like it was just yesterday when Korean cars were the butt of jokes and yet now they're highly desirable cars. I'm confident the Chinese will catch up on design and reliability soon enough. This 5 star crash rating is a great step in the right direction. The more high quality cars in the market, the better for us consumers.

    sana lng di nila dinaya ung test lol ganyan din dati ang koreanmade cars,pag sinabi mong koreandame maiisip mo substandard quality pero ngaun nakakasabay na sa reliability,technology at design...im sure gaganda rin ang chinses cars pero tingin ko mas matagal kase ang mentality ng lahat pag chinamade,kotse man o hinde eh substandard
