Initial tests indicated that the new Laguna was close to gaining a five-star rating. This spurred Renault to improve some safety features and it was agreed that the car could be re-tested. The company re-tuned the restraint systems and side airbags and that had the desired effect. The car body proved extremely stable and provided good protection for occupants. No points were lost in the side impact and only one was deducted for its frontal impact performance.
