The tested model of Chery J1 was introduced in Australia during 2011.
Dual front airbags are standard equipment. Antilock brakes (ABS) and electronic brake distribution (EBD) are also standard. Electronic stability control (ESC) is not available. A three point seat belt is fitted to the centre rear seat. This provides better protection than a two point (lap) seat belt. The roof bars are for cosmetic purposes and are not designed for carrying loads.
