We now know that the Great Wall ute may not be all that safe if you’re unlucky enough to be driving one when you have your next accident … it scored just 2.32 out of a possible 16 for a frontal crash in recent Australian crash tests. I guess that’s not so surprising seeing the base model comes without any airbags at all.
But just how tough are they? Well we’ll soon know for the Great Wall company has entered a couple in the next Dakar Rally and if they survive that then they’ve got a good chance of surviving anything you might want to inflict on them here in Australia.
