Jiangling Landwind X6 gets zero in crash test

This is the Jiangling Motors Corporation’s Landwind X6 four wheel drive which was recently shown at the Shanghai Motor Show.



The 4WD has been brought into the European market for the first time lately and naturally it has to go through European NCAP tests.

You would think how bad can it be, it’s a huge four wheel drive SUV after all.

The results of the German ADAC test which is comparable to European NCAP safety standards in areas of passanger cabin protection was ZERO out of 5. It was so bad that even airbags were deemed useless. The passenger cabin completely collapsed on collision.

I hope the Dadi SUVs and trucks that are going to be released in Malaysia soon do not suffer from this poor safety.

    That's a shame, but then Paul, how did they get to produce this crap when it didnt meet the safety criteria? I think they wanna reduce the population in China, accidents would be a fun way to do it i think. This baby wobbles, yikes! -_-?

  • Well it's to be advised to read and study the crashtest .Over the last 5 years other cars came out with the same results, especially small cars. I rather am involved in a crash with the Landwind than one in A Citroen, Smart,Hyundai Atos and other small cars.

    The european crashtest is based on several points. In the frontal crash the Landwind failed for the driver, but for the passenger(s) it passes, also the side crash gave a result of 75%, which is good. In the categorie children safety it past the test.

    If there is an extra airbag in the car and another warning light for the safetybelt, you add more points.

    The European carproducers do not want the Landwind on the European roads because of the selling price( around 17000 Euro), which makes it for everybody possible to buy a SUV.

    I am sure they (the Chinese) will fix the problem. By the way, also the Frontera, on which the Landwind is based did not score to high on the crashtest and was allowed on the European roads for several years.But of course that was an OPEL

    Where is the rating found dude? I went to EuroNCAP and found none of the above true. Because the ATOZ scored a well 3/5 and a 2/4 for Passenger and Pedestrian respectively.

    Haha , and I found a coincidence that all the Proton makes score far higher than the other makes? Since when have Proton built upgraded Milo-Tins?

    I wonder where did Johnny Boy got the NCAP ratings from. Don't think Perodua has ever send it cars for the rating .. and btw, the test done by ADAC on this 4×4 is not official .. hence, there shouldn't be any rating given to it.

    Don´t forget – the chinese are learning very fast. They will improve the land wind. Beside that the landwind is practically a copy of the opel frontera, which also scores badly in any crash tests but is supposed to be an european make. Either way, the Land wind is the only SUV I could afford right now without getting into credit or leasing. Thus i don´t care about safety when I buy a car for 15000 € , I care only about the PRICE. European car makers will sooner or later get into trouble when a typical mid size car like Opel Vectra or VW Passat costs 30.000 €, and a rather super-super mini like VW Fox costs about 11.000 €. The prices are CRAZY. Chinese cars are the way to go in the next 10 years. Maybe not right now, but remember : the Land wind is the first chinese car available on the euro market – soon OTHERS, better cars will follow. And they will be still VERY CHEAP, compared to euro crazy prices. Just look what the korean and japanese cars did to the car prices in the US. In the US for about 15.000 $ you can already buy a very decent US built car. In Europe anything which costs below 15.000 euro is crap.

    Especially german car makers will have to outsource the production to eastern europe or they will cease to exist. It´s nonsense to pay the western german worker 5000 € when a polish, slovakian or czech worker earns 1000 € and delivers the same or better quality. The german industry has to outsource all the production or the chinese will crash them like peanuts.

    It's obviously an Opel Frontera with different front and rear ends, and slapped with a tacky bodykit on the sides. And it still uses manual locking front hubs – how utilitarian! I suppose this Landwind (what a name!) would be good for some mild off-roading. Just don't crash in one…
