Dacia officials expect that Sandero will get four out of five stars for protection of passengers in the EuroNCAP safety tests. The representatives of the company hope that the tests will take place prior to the change of the rules on these tests, in which case Dacia should spend more to bring the model to the new standards. “Sandero, in the version with four airbags, was designed to achieve four stars in safety tests carried out by EuroNCAP. We hope that the car will be tested this year, before the amendment of the rules regarding the tests is carried out, “said for MEDIAFAX the director for Sandero worldwide, Sophie Albertus.
She explained that the new conditions could be more severe, especially in the protection of pedestrians. “It is very difficult for any auto manufacturer to produce a car that really protect pedestrians. On the other hand, with the front designed to better absorb the impact, you can get a better rating at these tests and increase the brand image, “said Albertus.
