Max Mosley, Euro NCAP Chairman and President of the FIA said, “The results for the Renault Scenic are particularly important as it sets the bench mark for this group of cars. Moreover, it is the first small MPV to be tested to an updated and more demanding Euro NCAP crash test protocol to achieve the top 5 star rating.”
As of January 1st, 2003, Euro NCAP adopted a new deformable barrier face in the side impact, and the use of an improved side impact dummy. The latest generation side impact dummy, ES-2, incorporates changes to the rib mechanism, spine backplate and pelvis which improves the sensitivity of the dummy, enabling a better recording of the forces acting on it in a crash and the injuries that an occupant might sustain.
