The re-tested scenic was an upgraded model fitted with a head protection curtain and a separate thorax airbag. A head and thorax airbag was previously tested but it failed to protect the driver's head. The curtain improves head protection and also better safeguards rear passengers. Padding under the steering wheel where the driver's knees would strike was not as effective as that provided in the Megane hatch that Euro NCAP has tested previously.
