The first truly independent road crash tests in China will begin 29th August with the Nissan X-Trail Sports Utility Vehicle the first car to undergo a trial smash. The new system was consistent with the international New Car Assessment Program (NCAP) and the test vehicles would be bought by the testing organization on the market rather than supplied by the manufacturer as was previously the case.

The Beijing Daily reported on Tuesday that the Chinese NCAP would be undertaken by the Beijing-based China Automotive Technology and Research Center, a body involved in setting national automotive standards. Liu Yuguang, director of the center's crash test laboratory, was quoted as saying that the center had bought six different vehicle models on the market for testing purposes.

The first test, on the Nissan X-Trail produced by Dongfeng Automobile Co. in Central China's Hubei Province, was expected to take place on Aug. 29, he said. By mid-October, the center would have completed tests on at least four models and published the test results, Liu said. With experience gained from crash tests on 1,200 vehicles since 1999 and the acquisition of new equipment in 2005, the center was proficient in international NCAP standards.

Liu said the new crash tests would be more objective and independent as all the costs would be borne by the center. The testing process and results would be open to the public. In the past, vehicles were brought to the laboratory by manufacturers and carmakers had no obligation to publish the results. The center planned to issue test results on 10 to 15 vehicles every year, Liu said.

What's the point of testing foreign cars anyway? We know they would all pass.

It's the Chinese cars that need to be tested at full 40 mph offset, not 35 mph as C-NCAP is doing.

Not True:

Australia's ANCAP tests foreign cars & the Holden Barina a rebadged Daewoo Kalos sucked and only got 2 stars.

&

Toyota was the 1st Manufacturer to lose a star in ANCAP with the previous Toyota Echo it was a 3 or 4 star rating then Toyota renmoved an airbag and it became a 2 or 3 star rating once ANCAP renewed testing of Echo.

Why don't they test chinese cars? Well I can show you what would have happened if they had tested a Golf MK2 platform car like flag/windcloud or FAW-Jetta. A few years ago the austrian motoring organisation tested a Golf2...

The test opens with "Attention: life threatening danger!" and explains you basically have no chance of surviving a (NCAP standard) crash.





Here's the video: http://www.oeamtc.at/netautor/html_seiten/crashtest_kaefer_golf/videos/golf2_video.mpg


Personally I don't think they will test cars based on these old platforms.
