Renault Kwid completely failed the safety test. AgainJuly 11, 2018
A small hatchback, assembled in India, was tested under the ASEAN NCAP program. The French model, to put it mildly, did not impress with its results. By results of tests the car has shown, that it is dangerous both for adults, and for children, and security systems at it are absent at all.
In crash tests aimed at checking the protection of adult passengers, Kwid managed to get at least some points only with a frontal impact of 7.29 out of 16 possible, while a side impact of 0/16 and head protection 0/16. All this pulls on one star.
A little better situation with the protection of children. With a frontal impact hatchback scored 14.55 / 16 points, with the side – 4/8. Bad estimates for the model for the equipment and the possibility of installing child seats. The overall rating is 28.55 out of 49 possible, which is equal to three stars.
For equipping with auxiliary safety systems, Renault Kwid received 0 points, because it lacks security systems completely – 0 stars.
Thus, the final score of Renault Kwid on the ASEAN NCAP program is 0 with a total score of 24.68.
Recall that earlier tests were conducted in the global NCAP program, where hatch first also failed the test, but then was able to score a half star. Repeatedly broke the top version with an enhanced body structure, airbags and a belt with a pretensioner on the driver’s side. The version for the Latin American market passed a local test for 3 stars out of 5 possible, but there Renault finalized and upgraded the car in order to improve safety.
