Introduced earlier this year in Australia, the BYD Atto 3 has now received the maximum 5 star rating in the Australasian New Car Assessment Program (ANCAP). Bear in mind the Atto 3 already boasts a 5-star Euro NCAP crash test score.
The Atto 3 scored 91% (34.68 out of 38 points) in the Adult Occupant Protection test, 84% (41.62 out of 49 points) in the Child Occupant Protection test, 69% (37.54 out of 54 points) in the Vulnerable Road User Protection category and 80% (12.89 out of 16 points) in the Safety Assist department.
The equipment list include dual front, side chest-protecting and side head-protecting (curtain) airbags as standard. A center airbag which provides added protection to front seat occupants in side impact crashes is also standard, and so are the AEB, lane support systems with lane keep assist, lane departure warning and emergency lane keeping, and speed sign recognition.
