The region’s automobile safety rating organization granted the highest safety certifications of 5-stars to two of VinFast’s flagship models, the Lux SA2.0 and the Lux A2.0, while its versatile city car, the Fadil, was granted 4-star rating.
During collision tests, the Lux SA2.0 earned 46.45 out of 50 points for Adult Occupant Protection (AOP) and 22.73 out of 25 points for Child Occupant Protection (COP), meanwhile the Lux A2.0 scored 46.89 out of 50 for AOP, and 21.81 out of 25 points for COP.
