Vietnamese auto company VinFast announced on Wednesday that its Lux SA2.0 SUV and LuxA2.0 sedan have received the highest five-star safety rating from the New Car Assessment Programme for Southeast Asia (ASEAN NCAP).

Its small car Fadil received a four-star rating, a high level for that segment, the company said.

The Lux SA2.0 scored 84.46 points out of 100 and the Lux A2.0, 88.15.

In the adult occupant protection category, the former scored 46.45 out of 50 points thanks to its four airbags and head protection technology.

All vehicles also rated highly in the child occupant protection category, with the test for children aged 18 months to three years in rear seats scoring full points.

They also scored high for safety assist technologies thanks to electronic stability control and supplemental restraint system for rear seats.

The three cars are now on display at the Vietnam Motor Show 2019 at HCM City’s Sai Gon Exhibition and Convention Centre.

At its booth, VinFast is also offering visitors some fun experiences. They can go on a tour of the company’s plant in Hai Phong through virtual reality technology, learn about components and technologies using the X-ray scan technology and experience the F1 Viet Nam racing track on the unique simulator racing game.

VinFast is offering promotions to buyers including a vacation at Vinpearl Nha Trang or Vinpearl Phu Quoc for five people and three years of free parking at all Vincom trade centres and Vinhomes across the entire country.

VinFast is a subsidiary of Vingroup, the largest private company in the country. — VNS
