Qoros 3 has the highest overall Euro NCAP score so far in 2013

The Qoros 3 Sedan has made a breakthrough among Chinese cars. The vehicle becomes the first Chinese car to be awarded a 5-star rating from Euro NCAP. The Qoros 3 sets further records by claiming the highest overall score so far in the test by safety organization this year.

For the safety test results, the Qoros 3 received 95% for Adult Occupant, 87% for Child Occupant, 77% for Pedestrian, and 81% Safety Assistance Systems. It garnered an overall result of 88% that equates to five stars.

“The safety of our vehicles was one of our key development goals from the start.  It’s a crucial demonstration that our customers are the most important consideration and it also says a great deal about the engineering integrity of the car as a whole.  So, while we expected a very good result in the Euro NCAP test, we are naturally very happy with how the car performed.  The Qoros engineering team invested an incredible amount of time and commitment in developing one of the safest vehicles ever assessed by Euro NCAP,” said Qoros Vice Chairman Volker Steinwascher.

Given the recent achievement, will newer Chinese cars be able to repeat or surpass the feat made by the Qoro 3?
