Chevrolet Onix scores NUL in Latin-NCAP crash test

FYI, Chevrolet Onix is the top seller in Brasil.

Latin NCAP calls Chevrolet Onix, Kia Rio Sedan “death traps”

Both models received a zero-star crash test rating.

The Latin NCAP — the agency responsible for crash-testing cars in Latin America — has flunked two of the region’s most popular models. The Chevrolet Onix and the Kia Rio Sedan both received a zero-star crash test rating. The Onix is the best-selling car in Brazil, where it’s built. The Latin NCAP notes that it performed particularly bad in the side impact test because the structure isn’t sturdy enough to protect the cabin. “The side impact brought a high compression in the chest of the adult,” the agency concluded.
