Renault Triber scores 4 stars in the Global NCAP crash tests
Global NCAP has released the results of its latest crash tests under the Safer Cars for India campaign. In what comes as a pleasant surprise, the Renault Triber has scored four stars for adult occupant protection and three stars for child occupant protection.
Triber’s body structure and overall safety has performed considerably well in the latest crash test. The car has been tested for a frontal impact at 64kmph. Results from the tests made it the safest seven-seater tested to date in the Indian mass segment. Renault built the Triber with more than seven safety features as standard and a class leading offering of four airbags available in its top variant.
On this impressive achievement, Venkatram Mamillapalle, CEO & MD, Renault India said, “Safety is of paramount importance for Renault and our products meet and exceed the requisite safety standards set by Indian Regulatory Authorities. An outcome of a joint project between Renault teams in India and France, Renault Triber has already established itself as a successful product and has seen tremendous acceptance amongst a wide set of car buyers. This is a proud moment for Renault in India, as the Triber was conceived, developed and produced in India, for Indian customers first, before we took it to the world. The 4-star adult safety rating by Global NCAP for Triber reiterates our commitment towards safety.”
Renault seems to have taken safety for its cars in India very seriously after facing criticism following the Kwid’s poor performance at the Global NCAP crash tests a few years ago. Furthermore, the seven safety features which come as standard across all models goes to show that safety is not just an add on feature anymore. Rather, it is any car’s basic requirement.
