THE all-new Toyota C-HR has achieved 5-star rating at the recent New Car Assessment Programme for Southeast Asian Countries (Asean NCAP) crash test.
The C-HR received 49.72 points for the Adult Occupant Protection (AOP), 20.86 for Child Occupant Protection (COP) and 20.73 points for Safety Assist Technologies (SATs) assessments.
With the C-HR scoring in all aspects including effective braking avoidance, seatbelt reminders, blind spot technology and advance safety assist technologies, it received 5-star rating with an overall score of 91.31 points.
The announcement was made at the Malaysia Institute of Road Safety Research (Miros) office in conjunction of its new gallery opening ceremony in Kajang, Selangor.
“We’re very pleased to receive the 5-star rating by Asean NCAP for the all-new C-HR which recognises Toyota’s on-going commitment to improve vehicle safety. As the distributor of Toyota vehicles in Malaysia, it is very important for us to ensure that our vehicles are equipped with the best safety features in order to provide protection for our customers,” said UMW Toyota Motor president Ravindran K. in a statement.
Built under the latest Toyota’s New Global Architechture (TNGA) platform, vehicle developers have much more flexibility in the three key areas of design, powertrain and dynamics, which enables them to deliver a new and fresh take on the crossover segment.
The C-HR was introduced with a single variant, powered by a 1.8-litre petrol engine mated to a 7-speed sequential shiftmatic CVT. Its safety features include anti-lock braking system as standard with vehicle stability control, traction control, rear cross traffic alert, blind spot monitoring system, electric parking brake, hill-start assist control and 7 airbags.
