Great Wall Steed fails the ANCAP grade

New Zealand Company Vehicle - - BRIEFS -

In the lat­est round of in­for­ma­tion re­leased by the Aus­tralasian New Car As­sess­ment Pro­gramme (ANCAP), the 4x2 petrol dual cab failed to meet even ba­sic stan­dards dur­ing its crash test achiev­ing a very poor 2 star safety rat­ing. Lower and up­per leg in­jury was likely in a crash due to ex­ces­sive footwell de­for­ma­tion, pedal dis­place­ment and sep­a­ra­tion of footwell pan­els. In ad­di­tion, steer­ing col­umn com­po­nents were a po­ten­tial source of knee in­jury for the driver while dash com­po­nents could cause in­jury to both driver and pas­sen­ger.
