The peeps from Euro NCAP highlight that the passenger compartment remained stable in the frontal offset test, which involves a deformable barrier and a speed of 64 km/h (40 mph). Though the driver dummy scored maximum points for protection, the passenger dummy lost a fraction of a point because the car offered 'adequate' (not the maximum 'good') chest protection. Anything else worth talking about?
In the full-width frontal impact, the driver dummy once again scored max points while the rear passenger dummy was provided with 'marginal' chest protection. Still, all other critical body areas were well protected by Euro NCAP standards. The Renault Kadjar aced the side impact barrier test, as well as the pole test.
The last minus worth mentioning comes in the guise of 'marginal' protection against whiplash injury in the event of a rear-end collision. On the plus side, the autonomous emergency braking system works like magic. On an ending note, the overall adult occupant score is 89 percent, while child occupant protection is a decent 81 percent.
