High risk of life-threatening head injury in offset test

The tested model of Great Wall Motors SA220 was introduced in Australia during 2009.

The SA220 scored 2.32 out of 16 in the offset crash test. The passenger compartment did not hold its shape well. Protection from serious head and leg injury was poor for the driver. Chest protection was weak for the driver.

The vehicle was awarded a default score of 16 out of 16 in the side impact crash test. However, the low offset score meant that the vehicle was limited to a 2 star rating and an overall score of 16.49 (the maximum available for a 2 star rating).


Safety Feature Summary

The safety feature information below is subject to change without notice. For up to date safety feature specifications for all variants, please see the safety feature table to the right or contact the manufacturer.

The SA220 has minimal safety features. There are no top tether anchorages for child restraints so this vehicle is unsuitable for transporting young children.

The passenger compartment did not hold its shape well in the offset crash test. The accelerator pedal moved rearwards 230mm and upwards 190mm. The steering wheel hub moved 99mm rearward, 127mm upward and 13mm sideways. The front ("A") pillar moved 114mm rearwards. All doors remained closed during the crash. After the crash very high manual effort was required to open the driver’s door.

The driver's head contacted the steering wheel. Steering column and dash components were a potential source of injury for the driver's knees. Dash and glove box components were a potential source of injury for the passenger's knees.

During preparation for the offset test the driver's seat slide mechanism was found to be difficult to engage and lock on both sides. As required by the test protocol, the seat was unoccupied at the time.

The side impact test normally used by ANCAP simulates a small car striking the driver's door of the vehicle under test. It is based on a regulation test but the regulation does not apply to vehicles with a high seat height like the SA220. Experience shows that such vehicles can be expected to perform well in this test so ANCAP has decided to award full score for these vehicles instead of conducting a crash test.
