2017 Dacia Duster Scores 3-Star Rating In Euro NCAP Crash Test

The agency noted that the passenger compartment of the SUV remained stable in the frontal offset test. The Duster though lost all points for the driver protection in the full-width rigid barrier test as head injury ratings indicated poor protection.

    In the side barrier test, the vehicle offered good protection to all critical body areas and even scored maximum points. Additionally, in the more severe side pole test, protection of the chest was noted to be adequate, and that of other body areas was rated as good.

    Due to the lack of advanced driving features such as Lane Assist System and Autonomous Emergency Braking,
    the Duster lost out on achieving a higher score.

    The tested SUV comes with features such as seatbelt reminder for the front and rear seats, a driver-set speed limiter, a side head airbag and belt pre-tensioners for the driver, passenger and at the rear, along with a side chest airbag for the driver and passenger.

    The Dacia Duster, when launched in India with the Renault badging, is not necessarily the same vehicle which will come to India. The features of the India-spec model may vary from the new Dacia Duster and the Euro NCAP rating is not entirely applicable to India.

    The current model was tested for its crashworthiness, and it failed miserably with a rating of zero by the Global NCAP agency. But with the new Dacia Duster scoring 3-stars, we expect Renault to equip the India-bound Duster facelift is much safer.

    The Dacia Duster will be brought to India as a Renault and is expected to be launched in 2018.
