Chevrolet Cruze Gets Five-Star Safety Rating...

... in China. After snatching the maximum five-star rating in the Australian New Car Assessment Program (ANCAP) in Australia, Chevrolet Cruze proves its advanced safety level once again, this time in China. the compact sedan received the maximum rating from the China Automotive Technology and Research Center (CATARC) which recently revealed the C-NCAP (China New Car Assessment Program) figures.

Wondering how did the Cruze perform in the tests? Here's a detailed explanation issued by General Motors:

"During testing, the front end absorbed energy as designed. As a result, the passenger compartment was well preserved. There was no damage to the A, B or C pillars. The central door locking system unlocked automatically and all four doors could be opened easily. Front and side air bags deployed as designed, with accurate matching between the touch point of the air bag and the crash-test dummy’s head."

The tested Chevrolet Cruze was a 1.6-liter SE that achieved the maximum score of 16 points in side crash tests and achieved 14.44 points and 15.73 points in front-end collision tests and front-end collision tests at a 40 degree angle. The car features four front and side airbags, while the 1.8-liter SX model comes with two curtain airbags in both the front and the rear.

Chevrolet Cruze is already on sale across China starting in April and is currently available in Chevy 4S stores in the country. As for sales figures, the parent company delivered a total of 19,196 in the first three months of availability, according to data provided by General Motors. The 1.6-liter SE version which was tested in China is available at a price of RMB119,900 (US$17,600).
