The 2022 Renault Duster crossover received 0 stars in the Latin NCAP crash test.
During testing by Latin NCAP specialists, the Renault Duster 2022 crossover rolled over, resulting in a fuel leak. Recall that in October 2019, the second generation crossover passed Latin NCAP tests and received a decent four-star rating.
Production of the crossover started in Brazil at the São Jose dos Pinas plant, prompting the organization to retest and see if there were any differences between the same crossover produced in different locations. Latin NCAP officials explain that the key difference between the Renault and Dacia versions is the lack of standard airbags. The 2022 Renault Duster received 29.47% of ratings for adult occupant protection, 22.93% for child protection, 50.79% for pedestrian protection and 34.88% for safety equipment.
Fuel leakage is a serious concern and therefore Latin NCAP is asking for the recall of all second generation Duster vehicles built in Brazil. In addition, representatives of the organization are asking to work with opening the door in a side impact, since in the worst case people can be thrown out of the car. It is worth noting that a Romanian model was used to assess the safety of the car, and the Latin NCAP states that the Brazilian car has a different front end, which may affect the result.
