Haval’s full H6 medium SUV range is now covered by a five-star ANCAP safety rating, following additional crash testing of the hybrid model.
Independent safety body ANCAP has expanded the 2022 Haval H6 mid-size SUV’s five-star safety rating to the H6 Hybrid model variant and upcoming H6 GT body style.
First published in March, the five-star ANCAP score given to the 2.0-litre petrol-powered H6 ‘wagon’ was carried across to the recently-introduced Hybrid variant, following some additional testing, as well as Haval’s upcoming coupe-inspired ‘GT’ body style.
“In order to confirm integrity of the battery and safety of high voltage electrical systems in hybrid variants, additional frontal offset (MPDB) and oblique pole tests were conducted. With these additional tests, this ANCAP safety rating extends to all petrol and hybrid variants of the GWM Haval H6,” ANCAP says on its website.
All models share the same results in ANCAP’s four categories: 90 per cent in Adult Occupant Protection, 88 per cent in Child Occupant Protection, 73 per cent in Vulnerable Road User Protection (pedestrians/cyclists), and 81 per cent in Safety Assist (advanced technology).
