Renault Captur gets 5-star ANCAP rating image

The Renault Captur has been recently tested by the safety specialists from ANCAP and the sub-compact crossover has been awarded with a maximum 5-star safety rating.

If you have your eyes on the new sub-compact crossover coming from Renault and safety is one of your main concerns, go ahead and place a deposit because the model in question has turned out to be one safe vehicle, after being tested by the ANCAP and awarded with a five-star safety rating. This rating has been achieved by the Renault Captur despite missing the airbags for the rear seat passengers.

“The Renault Captur was launched in Australia in 2015. This ANCAP rating is based on a rating issued by Euro NCAP in 2013 and only applies to variants with a 3 cylinder petrol engine. Frontal, side chest and side head-protecting airbags for the driver and front passenger are standard. A driver-set speed assist system is also standard. Advanced seat belt reminders are fitted to all seats. There is no side head protection for rear seat occupants. In the side pole test, driver head protection was good but chest and abdomen protection was marginal”, says the ANCAP.

In the Adult Occupant Protection, the vehicle has received a maximum of 32 out of 36 points, with 88 percent, and in the frontal offset, it received 15.75 out of 16, with 7.93 out of 8 in the side impact and 5.27 out of 8 in the pole impact. The whiplash protection has brought 2.8 points out of a possible 4. The Child Occupant Protection is at 79 percent, 7 points out of 9 have been awarded to the model in the safety assist, with 81 percent, and in the pedestrian protection, the vehicle scored 61 percent, with 22 points out of 36. The test applies to all 3-cylinder petrol versions, as the ANCAP is stating.
