Child Protection Test

In the frontal offset test, dummy readings indicated GOOD protection for all critical body areas of both child dummies, apart from the neck of the 10 year dummy where protection was rated as MARGINAL.

In the side impact test protection of all critical body areas was GOOD for both child dummies.

The SsangYong Korando is fitted with lower ISOFix anchorages for second row outboard seats and top tether anchorages for all second row seating positions.

Installation of typical child restraints available in Australia and New Zealand showed most child restraints could be accommodated in most rear seating positions, though one of the selected booster seats could not be correctly installed in the centre rear seating position.

Pedestrian Summary

The bonnet of the SsangYong Korando provided GOOD or ADEQUATE protection to the head of a struck pedestrian over most of its surface, with WEAK and POOR results recorded at the base of the windscreen and on the stiff windscreen pillars. Protection of the pelvis was mixed, with areas of GOOD and POOR performance, while the bumper showed GOOD results for leg impacts.

The AEB system showed ADEQUATE performance in tests of its effectiveness in pedestrian test scenarios, with GOOD performance recorded in most daylight scenarios and ADEQUATE performance in night-time scenarios.

In cyclist test scenarios, the AEB system offered MARGINAL performance. The system’s overall performance was classified as ADEQUATE.
