Even though the new generation Renault Clio scored pretty good for its segment in recent EuroNCAP crash test report, its success is kinda overshadowed by the amazing performance of Volvo V40, which is now the safest car NCAP ever tested. The Renault managed to pass all the tests with flying color, getting a five-star rating and best in class scores for child protection, pedestrian protection and safety equipment.
With a global score of 85 percent, the Clio takes an innovative approach to safety. Renault has compiles its road accident studies and the real-world behaviour of motorists to develop occupant safety solutions. The car also has a new electronic architecture designed to ensure that the latest-generation protective systems are triggered even sooner.
Besides the carefully designed and engineered body structure and chassis, the new Clio is also equipped with a number of advanced safety features, including cruise control and a speed limiter as standard, as well as audible and visual seat belt reminder warnings for all seats, plus ESC (Electronic Stability Control).
Renault has also worked on ergonomics and passive safety to arrive at this result. They have managed to create one of the safest small cars, without compromising practicality or driving pleasure. Well done then.
