Euro NCAP: Dacia Sandero scores 4 stars, Nissan Evalia 3 stars image

Dacia Sandero has managed to score 4 stars during the latest Euro NCAP crash tests, while the Nissan Evalia has received a total of 3 stars.

The safety specialists at Euro NCAP have recently tested the new generation of the Dacia Sandero, which managed to score 4 stars out of a possible 5. The Adult Occupant protection stands at 80 percent, the Child Occupant at 79 percent, the Pedestrian Safety at 57 percent and the Safety Assist at 55 percent. There are several problems in the adult occupant, where in the frontal impact, there is a marginal protection of the chest, and in the rear impact, there is also a marginal protection. The vehicle tested was a 1.2 base.

If things looked quite bad for Dacia’s Sandero, Nissan wishes the Evalia would be in the same spot because the model has scored only 3 stars. There is a 68 percent in the Adult Occupant protection, 81 percent in Child Occupant, 67 percent in Pedestrian Safety and 55 percent in the Safety Assist. The frontal impact test seen a marginal protection on the driver’s torso and legs and there is a marginal protection, again, on the neck, in the rear impact whiplash. The model tested was a 1.5 dCi full trim.
