Global NCAP is an independent body registered in the UK and one of its main initiatives is to promote safer cars in India and Africa. Unlike the more stringent Euro NCAP, the Global NCAP test is carried out by crashing the test car into a semi-deformable structure at 64kmph.

This type of crash test is used to simulate a 50kmph head-on crash with another vehicle of similar weight. As per Global NCAP statements, the Renault Triber used for this test came with just the basic safety specification. This basic safety net included two airbags, a seatbelt reminder and an ABS.

In the crash test conducted by Global NCAP, the Renault Triber was awarded a 4-star rating in adult occupant protection by scoring 11.62 points. From the crash test, it was noted that the head and neck condition was ‘good' for both the driver and the passenger, while the protection to the chest and knees were rated marginal and adequate respectively.

However, the Renault Triber couldn't replicate a similar level of protection for its child occupants. The test was carried out using both the forward-facing child seat and the rearward-facing child seat, and the French-designed vehicle could manage just 27 points out of 49 points which only earned a three-star safety rating.
