Compare with other cars in the Small MPV category

The latest Scenic has become the first small MPV to gain five stars for occupant protection. It achieved this after Euro NCAP allowed a side impact re-test. Initial tests showed that the integrity of the door locks needed improving. The Scenic performed very well, scoring the maximum for safety in the side impact and losing just one point in the frontal impact. But the protection it gives to pedestrians is only average. Euro NCAP says the design of the bumper and the bonnet's front edge need improving.
