  Renault Clio I
Clio 1.2 RL NCAP Crashtest


The Renault Clio was awarded two stars for protection in frontal and side impact. All the new criteria were met with the exception of chest protection in side impact and rearward and upward movement of the steering wheel in frontal impact.

In frontal impact, the major problems related to intrusion and the instability of the passenger compartment. There were problems for the lower limbs and attention is required in the knee impact areas. The unstable head contact on the airbag suggests potential problems for different-sized drivers and those in different seating positions.

In side impact, improved protection is required for the chest while also controlling the loading on the pelvis.

The instability of the passenger compartment was caused by the partial detachment of the facia from the side of the car. Actual structural deformation was judged moderate - the A-pillar moved back by 195mm at waist level - intrusion of the footwell and the facia was also moderate.

There was moderate collapse of the door aperture. After the test, the driver's door could only be opened using tools. The passenger's door opened normally.

The Clio's steering wheel was pushed back by a limited 105mm. It had also been forced upwards by 133mm under frontal impact, which is judged to be moderate.

Because of this rearward and vertical intrusion of the steering wheel and an unstable head contact with the airbag - the dummy's head slid off the bag and scuffed the windscreen pillar - head protection was downrated to marginal. However, the neck protection was good.

The facia intrusion and structural instability meant that the driver's chest protection, otherwise assessed as adequate, was downrated to weak.

Protection of both upper legs was downrated to poor because of the number of stiff structures which could concentrate loads on the knees in an impact. In the frontal crash, the dummy's left knee hit the bonnet release lever, rigidly mounted on the steering column. The right knee impacted against the headlight adjuster knob, displacing it so that loads strutted through to the engine compartment bulkhead. For both knees, further penetration into the facia would have resulted in sharply increased loads.

Protection of the lower legs was assessed as adequate on the left side and weak on the right side. Intrusion of the footwell during the frontal impact caused feet and ankle protection to be rated as weak.

Front passenger
Data from the passenger-side dummy showed protection for the head, neck, knee/femur/pelvis, left lower leg and feet and ankles was good. Adequate protection was provided for the chest and right lower leg.

<=== The steering wheel moved both rearward and upward, while the knees hit the bonnet release lever and the headlight adjuster

Side impact
High loading on all the dummy's ribs in the side impact crash test resulted in a chest protection rating of poor, with only marginal protection being provided for the abdomen. However, the head protection was judged to be good.

An instrumentation failure resulted in no data being available to assess pelvis protection. But information supplied by the manufacturer indicated that the ratings would have been within the range adequate to weak. Within this range, the overall rating for the car would not vary.

The child seat was well restrained
in frontal impact but poorly in side impact. In both, the head was allowed to move too much
Child restraint
Renault recommended a Renault Argonaut rearward-facing child seat for the Clio. However, the restraint was too large to fit on the rear seat with the front seats in their standard position for the test. Renault's second recommendation of a Britax Freeway forward-facing child seat was therefore used
The forward movement of the child restraint under frontal impact was well controlled. However, there was insufficient restraint provided for the child's upper body which allowed a large degree of forward movement of the head to occur.
The lateral movement of the child restraint under side impact was poor, with the upper part of the restraint moving nearly to the mid line of the car. The child's head then moved well beyond the sides of the child restraint.
