Global NCAP has released the results of its crash-test of the South African-market Chery QQ3 (see other results here).
The Chinese five-door hatchback failed to score a single star, with its bodyshell integrity rated as “unstable”. The QQ3 does without airbags, ABS and seatbelt tensioners and Isofix child-seat anchors.
Global NCAP reported that the protection offered to the driver’s head and chest was “poor”. The protection offered to the passenger’s head, however, was eated as “good”, with the passenger’s chest receiving “marginal” protection.
The bodyshell was rated as unstable, with Global NCAP saying “it was not capable of withstanding any further loadings”. The footwell area, too, was rated as unstable, showing rupture and exposing the driver’s feet to potential injury.
