Euro NCAP Results Breakdown (Videos)

Euro NCAP crash tests are used to rate cars in four areas: adult protection, child protection, pedestrian protection and safety assist, which scores items like seatbelt warnings and speed limiters. Test cars are given a score between zero and five, the latter representing top marks.

Landwind CV9

What befell the last car, the Chinese Landwind CV9? This first-timer in a Euro NCAP test lacked electronic stability control and side airbags. It could have been worse, though. The very first Chinese stab at the European market was taken by the Landwind X6, a Sports Utility Vehicle. In 2005, this car underwent German ADAC crash tests, only be declared unsafe. Why? Because a driver suffering a head on collision in it at a mere 40 mph would be killed.
