Zero Stars For Renault Duster In Global NCAP Crash Test | Duster Crash Test | carandbike

#Renault #RenaultDusterCrashTest #carandbike ➡️The base variant of the Renault Duster has received zero stars for adult occupant protection in the latest Global NCAP crash tests for Indian-made cars. The Duster also received 2 stars for rear child occupant protection. ➡️India adopts new crash test norms from October this year that will meet the UN testing protocol of 56 kmph frontal-offset and side-impact crash norms. However, Global NCAP mandates testing at 64 kmph, and most regional NCAP programs have adopted those norms. ➡️David Ward, Secretary-General, Global NCAP, said: “It is troubling that during the UN Road Safety Week we yet again encounter a zero star car in our crash testing in India. Renault produces the Duster in a number of markets and yet it seems content to provide a version for India which falls so far short on safety.” ➡️After the results were shared with Renault, the French manufacturer requested Global NCAP to also crash test a mid-variant that has a driver-side airbag fitted on. This second test has yielded the car a 3-star rating which is much better of course. ➡️The rear child occupant rating remains 2 stars in this case to of course for Renault Duster.
