Comments
Front impact
The passenger compartment remained stable during the impact. The driver's right lower leg was the only body region not to score maximum points in the frontal impact. The knees and femurs of the driver and passenger dummies were well protected during the impact. Renault were able to demonstrate that structures in the dashboard do not represent a hazard to occupants of different sizes or to those sat in different positions.

Side impact
The Laguna scored maximum points based on dummy responses. However, the rear door on the struck side opened during the test and the car was penalised by one point. Renault is investigating the problem.

Child occupant
The car scored maximum points for its protection of the 3 year old, based on the dummy results from the frontal and side impacts. The passenger airbag can be deactivated to allow a rearward facing child restraint to be used in that seating position but information provided to the driver about the status of the airbag was inadequate. The presence of ISOFIX anchorages was not clearly marked.

Pedestrian
The front edge of the bonnet scored no points for its protection of pedestrians' legs. The bonnet's protection of pedestrians' heads was predominantly poor.
