The tested model of Great Wall Motors V240 was introduced in Australia during 2009.

The V240 scored 2.36 out of 16 in the offset crash test. The passenger compartment did not hold its shape well. Protection from serious head and leg injury was poor for the driver. There was marginal protection for the head of the passenger and chest of the driver. The passenger seat belt failed during the offset crash test. Even if the passenger results had been better the driver's score would have still limited the V240 to a 2-star rating.

The vehicle was awarded a default score of 16 out of 16 in the side impact crash test. However, the low offset score meant that the vehicle was limited to a 2 star rating and an overall score of 16.49 (the maximum available for a 2 star rating).

Frontal Offset Crash Test Results

Region Score Score Type Maximum Score
Frontal Offset* 2.36 pts (out of 16)

Chest 1.67 pts
Upper Legs 0.69 pts
Lower Legs 0 pts

The passenger compartment did not hold its shape well in the offset crash test. The accelerator pedal moved rearwards by 202mm and upwards 120mm. The steering wheel hub moved 91mm rearward, 137mm upward and 20mm sideways. The front ("A") pillar moved 72mm rearwards. All doors remained closed during the crash. After the crash high manual effort was required to open driver’s door.

The driver airbag deployed but failed to prevent the driver's head from striking the steering wheel. Steering column components were a potential source of injury for the driver's knees. The passenger's airbag deployed but, near the peak of the crash, the seat belt retractor failed allowing the seat belt webbing to reel out and the airbag could not prevent the passenger's head from striking the dash. The manufacturer is investigating the cause of the seat belt failure. Dash components were a potential source of injury for the passenger's knees.

The side impact test normally used by ANCAP simulates a small car striking the driver's door of the vehicle under test. It is based on a regulation test but the regulation does not apply to vehicles with a high seat height like the V240. Experience shows that such vehicles can be expected to perform well in this test so ANCAP has decided to award full score for these vehicles instead of conducting a crash test.
