The Renault Kwid recently carried out its fourth crash test by the Global NCap institute (which Latin NCap Latin America is part of). The results, however, were again negative. The hatch manufactured in India, which should arrive in Brazil next year, obtained only one star, out of five possible, for the protection of the adult (8, 28 points out of 17 possible) and the child passenger (10, 91 points out of 49 possible). The first version tested, which did not have inflatable bags, left Renault without stars for adults and received two for children. From the alarming results, the automaker made structural reinforcements and the Kwid was tested again with a driver's bag - the only one available on the Indian market - but the result did not change as for the stars. The last analysis showed that there were improvements in the protection of the driver, but the impact on the chest of the test dummy (dummy) was still high, both in the driver's seat and in the passenger's seat next to it, justifying the low score. The NCap also reports the risk of impacting the passenger's knees with dangerous structures on the dashboard and unstable structure.
