The top safety score for the SUV comes just weeks after another new LDV offering, the T60 ute, also claimed a maximum safety score in Australia.
The LDV twins are among the very first Chinese manufactured vehicles to arrive in Australia with maximum safety scores.
The seven-seat LDV SUV comes with a generous array of standard safety gear, including:
- Blind spot warning
- Lane wander alert
- Autonomous braking
- Front collision warning
- Six airbags
Dinesh Chinnappa, General Manager of LDV Automotive Australia, welcomed the crash test results.
“The LDV T60 set our safety benchmark with its five-star ANCAP safety rating and, with the D90, LDV has proven that the highest safety rating is now LDV’s minimum standard for new vehicles launched in Australia,”
“The D90 not only meets the stringent criteria set by ANCAP for the 5 star rating, with technology such as road sign recognition, it reveals the next generation of road safety features.”
Powered by a 165kW/350Nm turbo-petrol engine, LDV’s D90 is priced from $36,990 drive-away.
