Comments

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
Based on dummy result in the dynamic tests, the Captur scored maximum points for its protection of the 18 month dummy. Both child dummies were seated in rearward-facing restraints. The head of the 3 year dummy was found to have made contact with the C-pillar of the vehicle, and no points were awarded for protection of the head. In the side impact, both dummies were properly contained by their restraints, minimising the likelihood of dangerous head contact with parts of the car interior. 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.
