GWM’s Haval H6 has received a 5-star safety rating from ANCAP following the latest round of testing against the stringent 2020-2022 rating criteria. This rating applies to all petrol H6 variants.
Introduced in Australia March 2021 and New Zealand in May 2021, the mid-sized SUV has scored highly in all areas of assessment. It scored 90 percent in adult occupant protection, 88 percent in child occupant protection, 73 percent in vulnerable road user protection, and 81 percent in safety assist.
It scored full points for driver protection in side impact and oblique pole tests, whiplash protection for front and rear occupants, as well as for front-seat passenger in the frontal offset test. However, it received a marginal score for protection to the drive’s chest and a penalty was applied for the driver’s footwell.
The vehicle also garnered good results for its active safety systems including all emergency lane keeping tests, autonomous braking system, and its ability to prevent a collision with another vehicle
Onboard safety features include dual frontal, side chest-protecting, side head-protecting (curtain) airbags, and center airbags are standard across all variants.
It also has autonomous emergency braking (Car-to-Car, Vulnerable Road User and Junction Assist) and a lane support system (LSS) with lane keep assist (LKA), lane departure warning (LDW) and emergency lane keeping (ELK), and an advanced speed assistance system (SAS).
This is an impressive achievement by GWM Haval,” said ANCAP Chief Executive Officer, Carla Hoorweg.
“This is GWM’s first new Haval SUV model to the Australasian market for a number of years. Delivering a 5 star vehicle to the market, against ANCAP’s latest 2022 protocols, demonstrates the brand has kept pace with the latest ANCAP safety standards and consumer safety expectations.”
