[Info] EuroNcap, 24 février: 2 étoiles pour une voiture moderne

Eh oui, il s'agit de la Chevrolet Kalos.

Surprenant, à l'heure ou l'on croyait que la Logan etait le minimum vital, avec 3 étoiles.

Bravo Renault/Dacia!!

Pour info, les autre Crash, dont la 207 a 5 étoiles!

A wake-up call for the motor industry as Euro NCAP awards two star strike-through for the new Chevrolet Aveo*


In recent years, the increasing number of cars obtaining top marks for adult occupant protection in Euro NCAP’s tests has led some to demand the introduction of a new benchmark and a sixth star.

However, results announced today by Euro NCAP prove that whilst some manufacturers are forging ahead in their safety development, others still have a long way to go.


Of the six cars tested by Euro NCAP in this recent phase, only two achieved the top five star accolade for occupant protection in Europe ’s leading independent crash tests.

Claes Tingvall, Euro NCAP Chairman said,

“I am pleased to see that two of the six cars have achieved a maximum five-star rating for adult occupant protection. It is reassuring that more and more car companies are now placing an emphasis on safety and we are happy to recognise their achievements.

However, we want to encourage the highest levels of safety in all cars and, in that regard, there is still work to be done. Euro NCAP will continue to provide consumers with the best information available regarding the safety of new cars.”

The Chevrolet Aveo was singled out by Euro NCAP for the unacceptably high risk of life-threatening injury to the driver’s chest, which was highlighted by the frontal test. As a result, the car’s final star was struck through. Although the Aveo scored enough points overall to qualify for three stars, Euro NCAP insists on a minimum level of performance in each of the frontal and side impacts. While the Aveo’s performance in side impact was good, it did not score enough points in the frontal test to be given a three-star rating.

Yet, the Chevrolet was not the only car to come under Euro NCAP’s scrutiny. The Kia Cerato obtained poor results in the side impact tests with a high risk of injury to the driver’s chest.

In contrast, the Peugeot 207 joins the growing list of superminis to be awarded the five-star Euro NCAP rating in adult occupant protection, proving that even the smallest of cars can be safe on European roads.

The Alfa Romeo 159 also received impressive results for its adult occupant protection with a five-star Euro NCAP rating. This is the first Alfa Romeo to have received five stars in Euro NCAP’s adult occupant protection test. More worrying were the Alfa Romeo’s pedestrian protection results: only a one-star rating.

Claes Tingvall, Euro NCAP Chairman said,

“I am pleased to see that Alfa Romeo achieved the coveted five-star Euro NCAP rating for adult occupant protection, yet I am disappointed that they have not shown the same commitment to pedestrian protection. There is a clear difference emerging between those car manufacturers who are trying to improve the protection their cars offer to pedestrians and those who still see that as a low priority. When cars can achieve creditable results without any advanced technology, there is no excuse for the very low levels of performance we have seen in this phase. There is no reason why cars cannot now provide a high level of protection to all road users.”

Other crashworthiness results for family cars, small family cars, superminis, small off - roaders are launched today on www.euroncap.com.

*The Chevrolet Aveo is a face lifted version of the Chevrolet/Daewoo Kalos. We were advised that the Kalos would be replaced by the Aveo, but now understand that the Kalos will continue to be available as a three/five door version until 2008. Until then we are informed that the Aveo will only be available as a saloon.

It has been indicated that the facelift includes improvements in safety and Euro NCAP can only conclude that the safety performance of the Kalos will not be as good as the Aveo. In any case, as our assessment was made on a saloon car, we can not be sure that the three/five door car will have the same performance.

Editors note:

1. The “strike through” is used to show that there was a serious risk of “life threatening” injury to one body region. In the case of the Aveo, the driver was at severe risk of injury in a frontal impact test at 64/km/h.

2. Organisations participating in Euro NCAP include the Departments of Transport of Sweden, The Netherlands, France, Germany, the United Kingdom and Catalonia, the FIA Foundation, the Allgemeiner Deutscher Automobil-Club (ADAC), Thatcham on behalf of the British Motor Insurers and the International Consumer Research and Testing (ICRT) on behalf of the European consumer organisations. Euro NCAP is also supported by the European Commission.

3. The results for Phase 17+ are announced on-line and will be available on the web-site on 24th February 2006.

4. Future launches will continue with the testing of new cars in all segments.

5. Euro NCAP introduced an additional star rating for child protection in November 2003. This rating is for a combination of a car with specific child seats that have been recommended by the car manufacturer. The combination can now earn up to five stars for child protection. The rating depends on the fitting instructions for the child seats, the car’s ability to accommodate them safely and their performance in front and side impact tests. However, there are important limitations to this rating, which are:
a. The child protection rating can not be used for the car alone, nor can it be used for the car with a different combination of child seats.
b. The tested child seat alone does not have a child protection rating.
c. The same child seat tested in combination with other cars may give a different child protection rating.

6. With the introduction some time ago of the Child Occupant Protection rating it is important to refer to the Adult Occupant Protection rating correctly. In the past, this has been referred to as the “Overall” or “Occupant” rating. Neither of these is now satisfactory.

7. The front impact test is conducted at 64km/h (40mph) into an offset deformable barrier, the side impact test 50km/h (30mph), the pole test at 29km/h (18mph) and the pedestrian tests at 40km/h (25mph).

8. Comparison between Size Categories: It is essential that no attempt is made to compare the ratings between cars in different segments or mass groups. The frontal crash test aims to measure the performance of the car impacting another car of similar mass. There is no capability to determine what would happen if cars of widely different masses impact each other. It is not primarily the mass difference that has the effect but the effect that mass has on the structural stiffness combined with the relative height of the structures from the ground.

Comparons avec la Logan dans les mêmes conditions!

Même s'il faut être expert pour analyser...

pas besoin d'être un expert pour voir que c'est mieux de rouler en Logan qu'en Chevrolet !

on voit très nettement la deformation du pavillon de l'Aveo au niveau de la porte avant alors qe sur la logan il est beaucoup moins prononcé!

bah, d'un autre coté, ce sont des test a a peine 64 kmh, donc un frontal a 32 a l'heure, alors dans n'importe quelle voiture, a plus haute vitesse, on y reste ou pas en fonction de la chance.....ceci dit, il vaut mieux mettre toutes les chances de son coté....

Nan les Us ne roule pas avec ça t'inquiète :wink: , par contre nous les Européens et Asiatiques on se la tape, il ne faut pas oublier que Chevrolet est anciennement "Daewoo" :? donc bon, faut pas s'étonner :shock:

YamaKadé, il est évident qu'un choc frontal à 130 km/h en Mercedes ou en Daewoo (Chevrolet), le résultat serat le même: La caisse en sapin :?
C'est clair qu'une voiture de moins de 4 mètres de long et qui pèse seulement 1 tonne a peu de chance de faire un tabac au USA...

Attention, je pense que sur une Citroen Traction, le pavillon ne se déformait pas beaucoup!
