This is the first time a Chinese car receives this distinction. The Qoros 3 Sedan was also the first car 'made in China' to win 5 stars, the highest score given by the consortium.
The Qoros 3 Sedan got the combination of the highest points of safety in both adults and children from all cars tested in 2013. The score of 77% in pedestrian safety was the second highest among the cars tested, while 81% obtained on safety equipment gave him another second place. As a whole the Euro NCAP conducted in 2013 in 33 diferent cars models and found a general increase in security levels, says the consortium in a statement.
