Haval Jolion scores five-star rating in ANCAP testing


The safety rating only applies to the petrol Jolion variants, as the hybrid is yet to be tested

The Chinese-built Haval Jolion is the latest vehicle to receive a five-star rating from ANCAP, with the test results recently being published. 

It’s worth noting that this five-star rating covers just the petrol-powered Jolion variants including the Premium, Lux, and Ultra. The Ultra Hybrid is yet to be tested. 

The Jolion scored 90 per cent in Adult Occupant Protection, 84 per cent in Child Occupant Protection, 64 per cent in Vulnerable Road User Protection, and 92 per cent in Safety Assist technology.

The Safety Assist score of 92 per cent puts the Jolion third in the ANCAP rankings of this criteria, only being beaten out by the Subaru Outback at 96 per cent, and the Tesla Model Y at 98 per cent. 

Points were deducted from the Jolion’s score as marginal results were recorded in chest protection in the driver front offset test, chest protection for rear passenger in frontal impact, and pelvis protection in the driver’s side impact test. 

Haval’s lane-keep assist system managed to score top marks here, but the autonomous emergency braking system was rated at “adequate”. This was down to “weak” performance in night time pedestrian tests, and cyclists approaching from behind in daylight.

“This five-star ANCAP safety rating for the Jolion is the third awarded to GWM under ANCAP’s stringent 2020-2022 protocols,” ANCAP CEO Carla Hoorweg said in a media statement.

“There has been a significant amount of interest in a rating for this model and it has been shown to offer a high standard of safety.”
