OMODA C5: All About This SUV’s 5-Star Safety Rating

The hugely popular OMODA C5 has just achieved a remarkable feat: a full five-star rating from the European New Car Assessment Programme (Euro NCAP). This isn’t just another accolade; it’s a resounding confirmation that the OMODA C5 is at the forefront of automotive safety.

As the first Chery vehicle to undergo Euro NCAP testing, the OMODA C5 passed with flying colours, showcasing the manufacturer’s commitment to superior build quality and safety. The Euro NCAP report reveals impressive scores across the board:

  • 87% for adult occupant protection
  • 87% for child passenger protection
  • 88% for the quality and efficacy of safety-assistance systems

These scores reflect the OMODA C5’s comprehensive approach to safety, protecting passengers of all ages while also incorporating cutting-edge safety technologies.

Designed For Safety

OMODA’s success in crash safety can be attributed to its focus on excellence in research and development. Their cutting-edge ‘super factory’ takes advantage of almost fully automated assembly processes, ensuring consistent levels of build quality for every OMODA 5 produced. The company also has an in-house crash facility that can conduct rigorous crash simulations at various angles and speeds, helping them fine-tune the vehicle’s safety features.

Right from the outset of OMODA 5’s development, safety was integrated into its design, making it well-prepared to excel in safety tests across different markets. 

Standout features include an adaptive cruise control system, which utilises a built-in radar to maintain safe distances from other vehicles on the road. The OMODA C5 also boasts an innovative airbag positioned between the front occupants, providing an additional layer of protection in the event of a side impact. The OMODA C5 also incorporates various other systems designed to prevent accidents and protect occupants, such as lane departure warnings, automatic emergency braking, and blind-spot detection. 

A Commitment To Safety Across The Range

As Tony Liu, the Executive Deputy General Manager of Chery SA, puts it: “For Chery, safety is not negotiable”. This philosophy extends across their entire portfolio. Families can trust that their OMODA SUV will keep them safe, whether they’re driving around town or embarking on longer journeys.

The OMODA C5’s superior safety rating isn’t just a win for the company it’s a win for consumers worldwide who prioritise safety. By focusing on user safety from the design stage through to production, OMODA has created a vehicle that not only meets but exceeds the highest safety standards. 

As we look to the future of automotive safety, the OMODA C5 stands out as a prime example of what’s possible when a manufacturer truly commits to protecting its customers.
