Cape Town - Global NCAP and the Automobile Association of South Africa has launched the  #SaferCarsforAfrica campaign in Cape Town.

The campaign coincides with the first independent crash tests of some of South Africa’s most popular compact cars.

5 popular SA cars crash tested: Polo Vivo, Etios and more

Chery QQ3 - 0/5

According to the Global NCAP:"The QQ3 achieved a zero star rating for its poor adult occupant protection mainly in driver’s head and chest. The vehicle structure was rated as unstable as showed collapsed in some relevant areas during the impact. Injury impacts recorded in the dummy head and chest in particular led to this result. There were no airbags for the adult passengers. The manufacturer did not recommend specific child seats which explains most of the points loss for child occupant protection. The QQ3 was given a zero star rating for child occupant protection, considering the poor vehicle readiness to safely accommodate the child seats."
