ANCAP Quick Fact: 60% of all serious crashes are frontal impacts.

14 December 2015

ANCAP Quick Fact: 60% of all serious crashes are frontal impacts.

60% of all serious crashes are frontal impacts and more than half of all fatalities to seat belt-wearing drivers in frontal crashes occur at impact speeds of less than 55 km/h.

The frontal offset crash test conducted by ANCAP is designed to simulate a head-on crash with another car of the same mass travelling at the same speed. This test is conducted at a speed of 64 km/h.

All cars must achieve the highest standards in this test, as well as a range of other physical crash tests, in order to be eligible for the maximum 5 star ANCAP safety rating.
