The unofficial Euro NCAP crash tests with Chinese cars.

The official European crash test institution NCAP has never tested a Chinese car.

But there are some other institutes which have tested Chinese cars, using the severe regulations of the Euro NCAP.

Here is a complete list until date.

September 2005: Jiangling Landwind X6.
Commissioned by a number of European consumer organisations, most important: ADAC, ANWB and OAMTC, probably for a German car manufacturer. The estimated rating was zero stars (1 point out of 16).

February 2006: Chery QQ (Sweet, QQ3).
Commissioned by the car magazine Autoreview.ru, done by the FSUE NICIAMT passive safety laboratory. Car was numbered 706. The estimated rating was one star (4.9 point out of 16).

June 2007: Chery Amulet (A15, Qiyun, Banner Cloud).
Commissioned by the car magazine Autoreview.ru, for the Russian car manufacturer Autovaz, done by the Autovaz laboratory. Car was numbered 964. The estimated rating was zero stars (1.7 point out of 16).

June 2007: Brilliance BS 6 (Grandeur, Zunchi).
Commissioned by a number of European consumer organisations, most important: ADAC, OAMTC and AMWB, probably for a German car manufacturer. The estimated rating was zero to one star.

September 2007: Brilliance BS 6 (Grandeur, Zunchi).
Commissioned by the European Brilliance importer HSO. Done by the Spanish Idiada Institute. The estimated rating was three stars.

December 2006: Geely Otaka (CK, Ziyoujian, Free Fleet).
Commissioned by the car magazine Autoreview.ru, for the Russian car manufacturer Autovaz, done by the Autovaz laboratory. Car was numbered 1004. The estimated rating was zero stars (1.7 point out of 16).

December 2007: BYD F3.
Commissioned by the Russian car importer Irito, done by the FSUE NICIAMT passive safety laboratory. Car was numbered 809. The estimated rating was three stars (10.2 point out of 16).

April 2008: Lifan Breeze (520).
Commissioned by the Russian car importer Irito, done by the FSUE NICIAMT passive safety laboratory. Car was numbered 814. The estimated rating was three and a half stars.


Be careful: at least two tests are described in the press as Euro NCAP, as they are in reality Euro R94 tests. The main difference is the speed of the collision (56 km/h in stead of 64 km/h).
These are the Irito/Niciamt test of the Brilliance M2 (BS4, Splendor, Junjie) of February 2008 and the CATARC (Chinese test institute) test of the Great Wall Hover of July 2007. Even Great Wall itself speaks about a Euro NCAP 4 stars rating for the Hover, a big mistake

64kph or 40mph that's good to know. Thank you Laofan for these important points of information.

I think it's noteworthy, and a curiosity, that the only Chinese SUV to have been crash tested by a European crash test institute so far is the Landwind.

If the German court has ordered the destruction of the imported Shuanghuan CEO's, then why not send them down to ADAC for some purposeful destruction. The results might be surprising.

I read an article in Yahoo once stating the luxury cars like BMW scored the lowest in terms of safety, I forgot the URL but I hope some can find it, it is an interesting read.
