As part of its suite of airbags, the H6 features a centre front airbag that helps protect the driver and passenger in the event of a side impact crash. This is mandatory to achieve a five-star rating under the current protocols.
The H6 scored 90 per cent in the Adult Occupant Protection tests, and 88 per cent for Child Occupant Protection.
For Vulnerable Road User Protection, it scored 73 per cent, losing points for lack of rear auto emergency braking, and for Safety Assist it scored 81 per cent.
ANCAP chief executive officer Carla Hoorweg praised the result as an impressive achievement by GWM Haval Australia.
“This is GWM’s first new Haval SUV model to the Australasian market for a number of years. Delivering a five-star vehicle to the market, against ANCAP’s latest 2022 protocols, demonstrates the brand has kept pace with the latest ANCAP safety standards and consumer safety expectations.”
