Haval H6 Scores 5 Star Ancap Safety Rating
/ in News
ANCAP has today announced that the Haval H6 has been awarded a 5 star safety rating.
Based on the stringent 2020 2022 criteria, the Haval H6 follows the GWM Ute to become the second new generation GWM model to receive a top safety rating.
Launched in March 2021, the Haval H6 was built on a new platform designed to deliver a number of improvements including increased safety and this 5 star result is further validation of the efforts of GWM engineers.
The Haval H6 performed well across all areas of ANCAP’s extensive assessment criteria with scores of 90% for adult occupant protection, 88% for child occupant protection, 73% for vulnerable road user protection and 81% for safety assist. The combination of these scores was enough to ensure that the H6 was awarded with the maximum 5-stars.
In addition to the new platform and body structure, the H6 was able to achieve the 5-star result thanks to a wide variety of active safety systems being standard across the range. These active safety systems include Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB) with pedestrian, cyclist and crossroads detection, Lane Keep Assist (LKA), Lane Departure Warning (LDW), Blind Spot Detection & Lane Change Assist, Forward Collision Warning (FCW) and Traffic Sign Recognition (TSR).
Since launch, the new-generation Haval H6 has found favour with over 4000 Australian new car buyers. It is expected that confirmation of a 5-star ANCAP safety rating will increase demand further. It also means that the company is now able to capitalize on potential fleet business to secure further growth.
GWM Australia & New Zealand Head of Marketing & Communications, Steve Maciver said “The announcement of a 5-star ANCAP rating for the Haval H6 is further proof that GWM is a brand on the move. Product quality is increasing at a rapid rate and this latest 5-star rating underlines that.”
“It’s no surprise to see GWM’s sales at record levels as more and more new car buyers find out for themselves why our range of Utes and SUVs are the smart choice.”
