Aiways U5 - Crash & Safety Tests 2019

The passenger compartment of the U5 remained stable in the frontal offset test. Dummy readings indicated good protection of the kneesand femurs of the driver and passenger. Aiways showed that a similar level of protection would be provided to occupants of different sizesand to those sitting in different positions. Protection of the front passenger was good for all critical body areas. In the full-width rigid barriertest, protection of all critical body regions was good for the driver and good or adequate for the rear passenger. In the side barrier impact,dummy readings indicated good protection of all body areas. However, the side curtain airbag had not deployed as designed, gettingcaught on the interior trim. The score for the driver's head was penalised and its protection rated as adequate. In the more severe sidepole test, high readings of acceleration indicated that the airbag had not protected the head from the intruding structure, and its protectionwas rated as poor. As a result, all points for the pole test were lost. Aiways have since changed the timing of the airbag deployment to tryto address the issue. Tests on the front seats and head restraints demonstrated good protection against whiplash injuries in the event of arear-end collision. A geometric assessment of the rear seats indicated marginal whiplash protection. The standard-fit autonomousemergency braking (AEB) system performed well in tests of its functionality at the low speeds at which many whiplash injuries occur, withcollisions avoided in most test scenarios.
