Adult occupant

The passenger compartment remained stable in the frontal impact. Dummy readings indicated good protection of all body regions of the driver dummy and all but the chest of the passenger dummy, protection of which was adequate. Renault showed that a similar level of protection would be provided to occupants of different sizes and to those sat in different positions. In the side barrier test, protection of the chest was adequate and that of other body regions was good. However, in the more severe side pole test, dummy readings of rib compression indicated weak protection of the chest and marginal protection of the abdomen. The seat and head restraint provided marginal protection against whiplash injuries in the event of a rear end impact.

Child occupant

The passenger airbag could be disabled to allow a rearward-facing restraint to be used in that seating position. Clear information was provided to the driver regarding the status of the airbag and the system was rewarded. All types of child restraints could be properly installed in the seating positions designed to take them.

Pedestrian

The bumper scored maximum points for its protection of pedestrians' legs. Protection of the head was predominantly adequate, both in those areas likely to be struck by an adult and those where a child's head might strike.

Safety assist

Electronic stability control is standard and passed Euro NCAP's test requirements. A seatbelt reminder system is also standard for the front and rear seats. A driver-set speed limitation device is also available and met Euro NCAP's requirements.
