TRW has announced that it has supplied safety systems on the entry model from Chinese premium brand Qoros.  

TRW said it helped to develop the full passive safety system, supplying airbags (including side and curtain), seat belts, steering wheel and safety electronics fitted to the Qoros 3. On the active safety side, it also assisted in developing and supplying electronic stability control, anti-lock braking and foundation brake systems.

Peter Lake, TRW executive vice president, sales and business development, said: "Being a partner to Qoros during the development of its first series production car, which has received top Euro NCAP scores, underlines our commitment to help automakers produce safer vehicles for consumers across all markets worldwide. This is an excellent accreditation which reinforces the high standards set by Qoros during its vehicle development and manufacturing program. We are proud to be one of its safety partners."

In what it termed a "ground-breaking result", the Qoros 3 Sedan was awarded the maximum five-star rating in the Euro NCAP (New Car Assessment Programme) crash tests last month.
