Chinese Landwind CV9 2 stars from EuroNCAP image

After they unveiled the results for 14 cars, Euro NCAP releases the crash test for the first Chinese-manufactured vehicle – Landwind CV9.

After an unsuccessful first introduction onto the European market in 2005, Landwind returns with the CV9, a mid-sized MPV that achieved two stars in Euro NCAP’s assessment. Eager to erase its poor safety record, Landwind hopes to make a strong comeback with the CV9, which according to the Chinese carmaker ‘has been revamped to meet the strictest European safety standards’.

In comparison to competitive vehicles in this segment, however, the car remains poorly equipped, lacking a side protection airbag, a head protection device and electronic stability control. The car was limited to a two star rating by its overall performance although it came close to meeting the three star threshold for adult occupant protection.
