safety of cars sold in the world is an issue that the car manufacturers should be taken seriously. The problem that exists is that it is not taken with due diligence is that half of their sales occur in developing markets and as for them, the vehicles have to have a competitive price do not invest in security the amount of economic that they should. The main countries that are affected by this problem are the India, Latin America and certain markets in asian and african countries.
As a curiosity, the GlobalNCAP has conducted its crash test and testing the Chevrolet Enjoy that is sold in India. This model offers a cabin for up to eight passengers and leaving behind a design, the less it resulted does not have certain elements of security. The main deficiency lies in the the absence of airbags in the basic versions because when having a bargain price the manufacturer leaves behind certain items that increased the final sale price.
In the test of frontal crash at 64 kilometres per hour, the Chevrolet Enjoy has achieved a score of 0 stars. The worse-off are the occupants of the seats front as they are the ones that absorb all the energy of the impact. The organization of GlobalNCAP has indicated that “the lack of airbags in the basic levels of the model makes the protection of the body is unacceptable,”. Also adds that “even in the versions that carry two bags frontal protection to passengers is questionable”.
As a formal reprimand on the part of GlobalNCAP David Ward, secretary general of the organization has stated that “there is nothing to enjoy of a score of security of zero-star and General Motors should be ashamed of that are selling cars with such inadequate levels of protection of the occupants of the indian consumer”.
To end we will say that this is not the first car of the conglomerate american who bundled up in crash test. A year ago few that the Chevrolet Spark (Beat for India) failed to overcome the test and therefore had to be removed from the market until they solved the problem.
we ask you to take a look at the video, you will see it wrinkle the car. So it is scary to think that for certain brands we are objects without any value.
