Tomorrow Euro NCAP will publish reports on a new series of crash tests. This time they tested the third generation of the Dacia Logan and Sandero Stepway models, as well as two electric cars: Volkswagen ID.4 and Skoda Enyaq iV. If there were no questions about the last two models (in the overall standings they scored the maximum five stars), then the “state employees” let us down this time.
In the Euro NCAP crash test, Dacia Sandero Stepway and Logan received only two stars. In more detail, how many points and in which test the cars scored have not yet been clarified. Euro NCAP deplored the manufacturer’s small safety ambitions, calling these Dacia models true to the no-nonsense postulate.
During the tests, experts noted that the emergency braking system of Sandero Stepway and Logan is primitive and is not able to recognize pedestrians and cyclists – only other cars, and these cars also lack a lane keeping system.
There are some positive aspects, too. Thus, the experts noted that the emergency braking assistant is quite good and worthy of attention, and it would help raise the overall rating to four stars, if not for other disadvantages.
Recall that the third generation Dacia Logan and Sandero models were officially presented in September last year. The vehicles are built on the modular CMF-B platform. A new-generation Sandero prototype is currently undergoing road tests in Togliatti.
