Euro NCAP safety latest - Renault Koleos
Adult Occupant Five stars
Child Occupant Four stars
Pedestrian Two stars
The passenger cell did not deform during the test, but several other areas that caused concern were highlighted. The airbag inflated very quickly which might pose a risk of injury to occupants’ faces and eyes. In addition, the glove compartment and steering assembly were seen to pose risk to occupants’ legs.
The Koleos had good safety features in this respect, with ISOFIX mountings present and an ability to switch off the passenger’s side airbag to allow the use of a rearward-facing child seat. Information on why the airbag needs to be turned off when using a seat of this nature was clear and permanently attached. Advice on whether the airbag was on or off was insufficient.
Information on the presence of ISOFIX mountings on the rear seats was clear.
The bonnet design was deemed to feature inadequate built-in protection for a pedestrian’s legs and head. This was true for a child as well as for an adult.
