C-NCAP to be made safer

Article from China Car Times:
C-NCAP, the Chinese body responsible for testing the safety of cars in China has yet again smashed up another round of cars in the name of improving safety in the Middle Kingdom. This round is the second batch of cars to meet their maker in the smasher this year

From its establishment several years ago till now, C-NCAP has tested over 104 different models of Chinese produced vehicles, and from this year will also add imported models to its testing tables. After taking pointers from various peoples and organizations within the automobile industry, C-NCAP are planning to improve their testing procedures again and will begin to test the crash worthiness of car rear ends and also baby seats. C-NCAP are also open to suggestions for 2012 testing procedures from both domestic and foreign professionals, and are planning to make Chinese crash testing regulations much stronger in the future.

In the latest round of testings the following cars were tested and awarded stars:

Dongfeng-Nissan Bluebird – 4 stars
FAW-Besturn B50 – 4 stars
Dongfeng-Kia Forte – 5 stars
Roewe 350 – 5 stars
Beijing Hyundai i30 – 4 stars
FAW-VW Golf – 5 stars
Dongfeng-Citroen C5 – 5 stars
The obvious winner here appears to be the recently launched Roewe 350, which was designed in house by SAIC and does not rely on any bought in technology such as the Besturn B50 which is based on the last generation of Mazda6. The Golf and the C5 will no doubt benefit from the safety recognition that they have been given and will continue to do well in the sales. Pictures of the crash tests have not yet been released, but will be available on CCT over the next few days.
Good. That will show those uneducated westerners and ******** on Youtube. I really want China to show thw world what their manufacturing industries are capable of and prove the West wrong about safety and refinement.

Because they won't pass????
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.

New standards for C-NCAP announced

The new China-New Car Assessment Program management rules have been unveiled, jfdaily.com reported today. The new provisions, which have been repeatedly revised, are expected to go into effect next July. The rules will usher in sweeping reforms for the C-NCAP and have been the focus of media attention for months.

According to Li Wei, assistant to the director of the China Automotive Technology and Research Center and head of the testing department, large revisions have been made to the rating standards, speed requirements and programs for the C-NCAP's crash test. For the first time, rear seat passengers will be accounted for in the test. Additionally, low speed crash tests will be introduced, while the inclusion of other safety systems, such as ESC and ESP, will be considered while scoring. Total scores will increase from 51 to 62, while the star system will also be modified.

Officials from the C-NCAP Management Center are confident that the new standard will help raise the overall safety of automobiles on the road today. With the five stars rating being harder to obtain than before, consumers and manufacturers are sure to increase awareness of automobile safety. According to the C-NCAP, the upcoming standards are vastly different than the current ones. "From now on, [manufacturers rated by] the C-NCAP should clearly point out which version was used and what time the tests were done," in order to prevent consumer confusion, Mr. Li Wei advised.
