Adult occupant

In the frontal impact test, the passenger compartment suffered extensive deformation and could clearly not withstand any further loading. There was a large fold at the top of the windscreen pillar and the bottom load path through the wheel and sill had lost its integrity, and the car was penalised. This penalty, together with dummy readings of chest compression, resulted in the driver's chest protection being rated as weak. Neither the driver nor the passenger seatbelt has a pretensioner. Dummy readings indicated good protection of the knees and femurs of the driver and passenger. However, structures on the driver's side of the dashboard - steering column, fuse box and brackets - presented a hazard to occupants of different statures and to those sat in different positions, and protection of the knees and femurs was rated as marginal. The rear mounting of the front lower subframe was pushed rearwards in the impact, rupturing the footwell area. Rearward movement of the clutch was 144mm and protection of the driver's feet and ankles was rated as weak. In the side impact, the seat-mounted head/thorax airbag deployed forward of the dummy's head and provided very little protection. While dummy readings were not excessive, a penalty was applied to the head protection in both the side barrier and pole tests owing to the incorrect deployment of the airbag in the side barrier test. In the pole test, dummy readings of rib compression indicated weak chest protection. The driver's seat was pushed sideways and covered the seatbelt buckle, which could not then be released. The seatbelt had to be cut in order to remove the dummy from the car. Tests indicated marginal protection against whiplash injury for the front seat occupants in a rear-end collision. A geometric assessment of the rear seats indicated poor whiplash protection.

Child occupant

The front passenger airbag can be disabled to allow a rearward-facing child restraint to be used in that seating position. However, the switch to change the airbag status is marked only by a removable label, and the system was not rewarded. All of the restraint types for which the car is designed could be properly installed and accommodated in the car with the exception of the semi-universal Group 0 restraint which uses a support leg. In the rear centre seating position this support leg cannot be properly installed because of the centre tunnel.


The protection offered by the bumper to pedestrians' legs was predominantly good or adequate. However, the front edge of the bonnet showed poor protection of the pelvis areas in all tests, and scored no points. The protection provided by the bonnet to a pedestrian's head was mainly good or adequate, with poor results recorded on the stiff windscreen pillars.

Safety assist

The Logan MCV has electronic stability control as standard. A seatbelt reminder for the driver and front passenger is also standard but there is no system for the rear seats. The Logan MCV does have a speed assistance system as an option but it is not expected to be fitted to the majority of vehicles sold so it was not included in the assessment. Neither a lane keeping assist system nor autonomous emergency braking are available.
