The Kia Sportage has received a 5-star ANCAP safety rating against ANCAP’s 2020-2022 protocols.
The Kia Sportage scored highly across all areas of assessment, achieving 87% in adult occupant protection, 87% in child occupant protection, 66% in vulnerable road user protection and 74% in safety assist.
All variants come fitted with autonomous emergency braking (Car-to-Car, Vulnerable Road User and Junction Assist), as well as a lane support system with lane keep assist (LKA), lane departure warning (LDW) and emergency lane keeping (ELK), and an advanced speed assistance system (SAS).
“The new Kia Sportage has already proven to be a popular choice for fleets and families, and Kia is to be congratulated for achieving another 5-star safety rating against ANCAP’s 2020-2022 protocols,” said ANCAP Chief Executive Officer, Carla Hoorweg.
ANCAP has also extended its existing 5-star rating for GWM Haval H6 petrol variants to H6 Hybrid variants.
“Two additional ANCAP crash tests were performed on hybrid variants of the GWM Haval H6, with comparable high levels of safety performance observed. This has enabled the existing 5-star ANCAP safety rating published earlier this year for petrol variants to be extended to H6 Hybrid models,” Ms Hoorweg said.
“The broadening of the 5-star ANCAP safety rating to H6 Hybrid variants provides additional choice for those in the market for a safe vehicle with a hybrid drivetrain.”
