Landwind CV9 only with two stars even after the second crash test
But back to the crash test loses. The Landwind CV9 is currently not available on the European market, but orders have been placed for the SUV according to European specifications. Landwind had already presented another model for crash tests some time ago and achieved a catastrophic result with two stars. In the current test with the new model, the result was no better.
In a frontal impact, the protection of the upper body and the lower extremities is below average. The load on the upper body in a side impact is high. During the frontal crash, three of the four doors opened. According to the testers, the passenger cell was at the limit of its capacity during the test; at a higher speed it would have collapsed. The steering column in particular caused severe injuries in the dummy 's foot area during the test. Since the Landwind CV9 does not have head airbags, the pole test was not completed. Landwind did not provide compliant seats for the rear impact test, which simulates the risk of whiplash. The seats from the crashed vehicle were unusable for this individual test.
Landwind CV9 with deficit in child protection
In terms of child safety, the head movement of the three-year-old dummy exceeded the set limits in a frontal impact. In addition, the front airbag cannot be switched off in order to install a rear-facing child seat. Furthermore, the Landwind CV9 only received 2 points for safety equipment (29 percent of the achievable points), as neither ESP nor a speed assistant are on board. Only the seat belt reminder contributed two points.
