ASEAN NCAP tests Daihatsu Ayla (four stars), Toyota Agya (four stars) and Datsun Go (two stars)

Apart from the 2016 Toyota Hilux, ASEAN NCAP has also released crash test results of three popular small hatchbacks in Indonesia – the Daihatsu Ayla and Toyota Agya twins, as well as the Datsun GO. This is the first time Indonesian-market cars have been tested by the regional safety programme.

Both the Ayla and Agya are familiar to us, of course – they’re what our Perodua Axia (which has also been crash tested by ASEAN NCAP) is based on. So how did they do? Well, two versions of Ayla were tested – one with no airbags, another with dual airbags. The Agya, on the other hand, comes with dual airbags as standard, as is the case with the Axia.

Without airbags, the Daihatsu scored one star in Adult Occupant Protection (AOP), netting a dismal 5.56 points out of a possible 16 in the 64 km/h frontal offset crash test. As for Child Occupant Protection (COP), the car claimed a grand total of two stars, with a 47% compliance rating.

Adding two airbags lifts the Ayla’s AOP score to four stars and 12.84 points, while the COP compliance percentage of 51% – just a 4% difference – was enough to get it into the three-star category. The Agya had a similar AOP score (four stars, 12.84 points), but its COP rating was a much better four stars, with an 82% compliance rating.

How do these results compare to the Axia? The Malaysian-built version managed to get a four-star rating for AOP with 12.91 points – almost identical stats to both Indonesian cars. In terms of child protection, the Axia also scored four stars with a 79% compliance rating, a performance that’s clearly much closer to the Toyota.

Moving along to the other car in the list, the Datsun GO – available with only one airbag – scored two stars in AOP with 6.82 points, and two stars in COP with a 46% compliance rating. That’s still quite some difference from the zero stars a “sub-standard” non-airbag version scored in the Indian-based Bharat NCAP test.

        People won’t buy proton because it is 5 star. People buy proton because it is CHEAP! Therefore you see proton 5 star models all in showroom/warehouse with RM 10k discount.
        No every proton drivers will meet fatal accident, but every proton drivers will experience break down for sure, thanks to proton awesome build quality.
        For a 5 star proton, you can’t even sure its VSC/ABS/CDE/FGH will work during accident, it is a proton after all.

            Volvo is much more expensive. How to compare.

            The Saga and Persona are due to be replaced soon, and their replacement will be much better than the cars they replace.

            The Iriz is the safest car below 60k by a big margin.

      They’re old, that’s why.

      The Persona is based on the Gen-2 platform from 2004.
      The Saga is based on the Savvy platform from 2005.

      Meanwhile, the Agya, Axia and Ayla are new cars which came out in 2013 or 2014. I’m guessing that the three cars are simply re-engineered 2007 Daihatsu Miras, but I don’t know for sure.

      The Datsun GO has no excuse, it’s based on the still quite new 2010 Micra, but is so unsafe, it’s a disgrace to the Datsun name. I’m sure the old school Datsun Sunnys are safer than the GO.

    I’ll get the ball rolling for the usual same-old comments:
    1. Proton NCAP rating the best! better than huracan!
    2. P2 better, at least i get RV built-in for the brake pedal. No ESC no prob.. we ride moto no need ESC!

    You know why our government has never changed? When there are so many many people whose intellectual ability makes them blind to the failures that are our car companies, what then can you expect when voting.

      ASEAN NCAP results of Proton vehicles were confirmed by ANCAP tests, which is accepted to be equivalent to Euro NCAP.

        That is stupid. A safe car will raise the bar, but if you do stupid things you’ll die. A crash that will give you a few bruises in an Iriz Premium can kill you in a Myvi, Vios, Viva, … but that doesn’t make the Iriz invincible. Just much safer.
