The ratings explained
Adult occupant protection
Points are awarded from the frontal test. Modifiers are also given to extend the assessment to cover different sizes of people in a variety of seating positions, in particular for the knee contact area.
Child occupant protection
Based on Euro NCAP model, Latin NCAP has carried out a child occupant safety assessment since its very first test to ensure that manufacturers take responsibility for the children travelling in their vehicles. In November 2003, Euro NCAP introduced a child occupant protection rating to provide clearer information for consumers about the results of these tests.
Latin NCAP uses 18 month old and 3 year old sized dummies in the frontal test as Euro NCAP does. As well as studying the results from the impact tests, Latin NCAP verifies the clarity of instructions and seat installation in the vehicle to ensure that the child seat can be fitted safely and securely.
