Trojan horse

The Great Wall Steed has earned a two-star ANCAP crash rating. According to the test report, the underpinnings of the Steed “differ little to that of the previous-generation dualcab ute”, a vehicle that was deemed “marginal” for whiplash protection and suffered excessive footwell deformation in the frontal offset crash test. Great Wall spokesperson Andrew Ellis said the Australian distributor had “set up a response team to investigate what needs to be done to improve the ANCAP performance of our product.”
