Qoros first ever car the 3 Sedan has achieved a 5* Euro NCAP rating. It is the first time a brand head quartered in China has achieved a 5* rating. Another bragging point, is the fact that it has achieved the highest score of any vehicle tested so far this year, it is also among the highest scoring cars ever tested.
A detailed review of the Euro NCAP test results:
Adult Occupant: 95%
Child Occupant: 87%
Safety Assistance Systems: 81%
Overall result: 88% = Five stars
The four test criteria have different weighting when calculating the overall score. Adult Occupant protection has a 50 per cent weighting, Child Occupant and Pedestrian protection categories each have a 20 per cent weighting, and Safety Assistance Systems has a 10 per cent weighting.
