NCAP President Stefan Broadziak said in the test results that if we had not done this test, we would not have known about the weak security features of Fiat Argo / Cronos. The Fiat Argo / Chronos will protect not only its customers, but also the number of people on the road with this type of vehicle. This Fiat car has been added to the list that is not safe in terms of driver safety. We urge Fiat to move to a safer vehicle. On the other hand, we are surprised by the results of the Volkswagen Taus, said the NCAP president. This level of protection is expected to be offered across all models of the brand.

How is the crash tested?
Almost all companies do NCAP car crash tests. A dummy is used in the car for this test. This dummy is made like a human. During the test, the vehicle is hit by a solid object at a certain speed. At this time 4 to 5 dummies were used in the car. There is a baby dummy in the back seat. It is fixed on the child safety seat. Rating is based on whether the car’s airbags worked after the crash test and how much damage was done to the dummy.
This car was a ‘hit’ in terms of safety.
