Latin NCAP latest results: the first BYD tested scores zero stars and the Fiat New Palio drops to one star under the new assessment protocol

Latin NCAP’s latest crash test results were released on 3rd August at the annual FIA Region IV American Congress being held in Paraguay. The results were disappointing with a zero star model and a star reduction for a top selling model in the region.

The BYD F0’s most basic safety equipped version disappointed by scoring zero stars for adult safety and only one star for child occupant protection. The model, similar to the well-known Peugeot 107, offered a stable structure in the frontal impact, but showed high-risk injuries in adult dummies due to the lack of airbags. The Fiat New Palio scored only one star for adult occupant and three stars for child occupant protection. The poor adult result was due the chest impact recorded by the dummy, however there was a good performance of the structure during the side impact test. The model obtained maximum protection for child occupants in the side impact test.
