New Renault Grand Scenic Secures Five-Star Euro NCAP Rating

It is well known that Renault is one of the manufacturers that manages to achieve the best scores in the Euro NCAP crash tests and the new Grand Scenic comes to confirm this. This new model has just achieved a five-star Euro NCAP rating, becoming the 12th model produced by the French company that receives the maximum scores in the crash tests.

And because we're talking about the high level of safety the new Grand Scenic provides, the car is offered with twin side impact sensors (an technology first rolled out on Laguna III), six airbags, including two dual-chamber thorax/groin airbags, new generation headrests plus Renault's System for Restraint and Protection which consists of double pretensioners, load limiters and dual-chamber twin-stage adaptive front airbags.

Additionally, the new range offers ABS and emergency brake assist as standard, while ESC (Electronic Stability Control) and CSV understeer control is only available to a number of versions.

"Renault's across-the-range approach to safety is founded on the study of real-world accidents and places the priority on developing the most effective technologies when it comes to preventing accidents from occurring in the first place, taking corrective action and protecting occupants, as well as to enhancing the safety awareness of all road users," the French manufacturer said in a self-praising statement.

As we said, the new Grand Scenic is the 12th model in Renault's lineup that achieves a 5-star rating. It all started in 2001 when Laguna II became the first car in history to achieve this level of safety, as the company mentioned in the release.
