PETALING JAYA: The Omoda 5, the first product under Chery's new global Omoda series, has been awarded a full five-star safety rating by the European New Car Assessment Programme (Euro NCAP).
It aced in the Adult Occupant, Child Occupant, Vulnerable Road Users and Safety Assist categories.
Chery said the SUV’s success in the test was rooted in its user-centric focus and pursuit of quality.
It said 78% of the Omoda 5’s body is high-strength steel, capable of withstanding pressures of up to 1,800 MPa, and the body itself has been meticulously designed and made d to maintain its overall structure without deforming in the event of collisions.
Additionally, its Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS) incorporates 16 functions, including adaptive cruise control, to further maximise occupant safety and comfort.
The Omoda 5 had also been field-tested in some of the harshest conditions around the world, it added.
The SUV has to date been launched in China, Kuwait, Israel and several other markets, and will make its way to many other countries and regions in the coming year.
