October 30, 2013 by John Day
TRW Automotive Holdings Corp. announced that it is launching a host of safety features on the new Qoros 3 Sedan – the first international brand headquartered in China to have been awarded a Euro NCAP five star rating.
TRW helped to develop the full passive safety system, supplying airbags (including side and curtain), seat belts, steering wheel and safety electronics, and on the active safety side it also assisted in developing and supplying electronic stability control, anti-lock braking and foundation brake systems.
Euro NCAP conducts crash tests and provides consumers with an independent assessment of the safety performance of some of the most popular cars sold in Europe. It assesses new vehicles in four categories: Adult Occupant Protection (AOP), Child Occupant Protection (COP), Pedestrian Protection (PP) and Safety Assist (SA). Euro NCAP has rapidly become a catalyst for encouraging significant safety improvements on car platforms being sold across the continent.
