The LDV D90 joins other recent SUVs in being awarded a 5 star Australasian New Car Assessment Program (ANCAP) rating after local testing.

The Chinese maker’s first SUV competes with the likes of the Holden Trailblazer and Isuzu MU-X in Australia and joins the brand’s T60 ute that was also given top marks for vehicle safety.

During crash testing, the D90 scored perfect scores for both the pole and side impact tests and 14.05 out of 16 points for frontal offset testing. Its overall score of 35.05 out of 37 puts it in close company with the recently tested 5 star Jeep Compass (35.93), Hyundai Kona (35.07) and Holden Equinox (34.21). 

In addition to six airbags and electronic stability control, the full-size SUV features advanced safety aids such as autonomous emergency braking, front collision warning, blind spot warning, lane departure warning and traffic sign recognition.

General manager of LDV, Dinesh Chinnappa, says the car represents the next-generation of safety and credits its success to China’s largest car maker and parent-company SAIC.

“The D90 not only meets the stringent criteria set by ANCAP for the 5 star rating, with technology such as road sign recognition, it reveals the next generation of road safety features,” said Chinnappa.

“Drawing on the resources of one of the world’s largest car makers, LDV’s parent SAIC, as well as its own design and engineering prowess, LDV is producing a new generation of vehicles, heralded by the T60 and confirmed by the D90, that offer 5 star safety with value, technology, advanced connectivity, impressive features and comfort.”
