Description: The passenger compartment of the new MY16 Mégane remained stabled in the frontal impact. Dummy readings indicated good protection of the knees and femurs of the driver and passenger. Renault showed that a similar level of protection would be provided to occupants of different sizes and those sat in different positions. In the side barrier impact, protection was good for all body critical body regions, and the car scored maximum points. In the more severe side pole test, protection of the chest was rated as adequate, with good protection of other parts of the body. In Euro NCAP's tests, the front seats and head restraints demonstrated good protection against whiplash injury in the event of a rear-end collision. A geometric assessment of the rear seats indicated good protection also for occupants of those seats. A low-speed autonomous emergency braking system is not available on the Mégane. The Mégane scored full points for its protection of both the 11⁄2 year dummy and the 3 year dummy in the full scale crash tests. Both were seated in rearward-facing restraints. In the side barrier test, both dummies were properly contained within the protective shells of their restraints, minimising the risk of contact with parts of the vehicle interior. The front passenger airbag can be disabled to allow a rearward- facing child restraint to be used in that seating position. Clear information is provided to the driver about the status of the airbag and the system was rewarded. All of the restraint types for which the Mégane is designed could be correctly installed and accommodated in the car. The bumper scored maximum points for its protection of pedestrians' legs, with good results at all test points. Likewise, the Mégane provided good protection to the pelvic region of a struck pedestrian. The protection provided by the bonnet to the head of a struck pedestrian was predominantly good or adequate, with poor results recorded only on the stiff windscreen pillars.
