Latin NCAP results

20 July 2015

The latest Latin NCAP crash test results show important progress but also expose the continued sale of some cars with sub-standard levels of safety.

With new support from Bloomberg Philanthropies Latin NCAP is continuing to champion improved levels of adult and child occupant protection which in many countries still fall below minimum United Nations safety standards.

The latest results show an encouraging double five star rating by the Jeep Renegade and a disappointing zero stars in adult and child occupant safety from Chery.

María Fernanda Rodríguez, Latin NCAP President and Fundación Gonzalo Rodríguez President said, “We are very satisfied to see how seriously some manufacturers are taking child road safety. It is now time for all manufacturers to take this approach so we can see popular models reaching five star levels of child protection. It remains very disappointing that some manufacturers are still not committed to the safety of motoring consumers in Latin America, this situation must change urgently”.
