Renault Triber scores 4-stars in Global NCAP crash test

Written by Nizam Shaikh

In the latest round of crash tests at the Global NCAP, the Renault Triber has received 4-stars for safety. The Renault Triber was crash tested under the SaferCarsForIndia initiative. The UK registered charity organisation crash tests and assesses vehicles, especially for the emerging market. Global NCAP’s reports allow customers to make informed buying decisions as far as occupant safety is concerned. 

Renault’s compact MPV Triber comes with the most basic safety features. The test car featured front seatbelt pretensioners, seatbelt reminders, driver and front passenger airbags and 4-channel ABS. The MPV did not have side-body airbags, side head airbags, driver knee airbags or ISOFIX child seat restraint system. For the crash test, the Renault Triber undergoes the Front Offset Deformable Barrier Test at the speed of 64 km/h. 

Adult Occupant Protection

In the Adult Occupant Protection department, the Triber offers good protection to the head and neck of the driver and front passenger. The protection to the chest of the driver was marginal, while the passenger shows good protection. While the passenger’s knees offer good protection, the driver’s knees could impact dangerous structures behind the dashboard. This means that the driver only gets marginal protection for the knees. But both driver and passenger tibias (prominent bone of the lower leg) show adequate protection. 

The footwell area of the MPV remained stable. However, the bodyshell rating is unstable, and it is not capable of withstanding further loadings. This earned the 2021 Renault Triber 11.62 points out of 17.00 points. This score translates to 4 out of 5 stars. 

Child Occupant Protection

Global Ncap chose a 3-year old child dummy and an 18-month child dummy for the child occupant protection department test. During the test with the 3-year old child seated in a BRITAX DUO PLUS forward-facing child seat with an adult seatbelt. The Triber was not able to prevent excessive forward movement during the impact. Due to this, the child only gets low head protection and average chest protection. However, the 18-month child dummy was seated in a BRITAX BABY-SAFE seat in the rearward facing position with an adult seatbelt. During the test, the system offered complete protection to the child occupant. The car does not come with an ISOFIX child seat anchorage system. 

The 2021 Renault Triber in the Child Occupant Protection department scored 27.00 points out of 49.00 points. Thus earned the MPV 3 out of 5 stars for safety.
