Euro NCAP has been regarded as one of the most important benchmarks for vehicle safety in Europe since 1997. The new Touran was put through the organisation’s newest and most
rigorous test programme, and recorded an 88 per cent rating for adult safety. The tests carried
out included:

• Frontal impact into a deformable barrier at 40mph with 40 per cent overlap

• Frontal impact at 30mph into a rigid barrier with 100 per cent overlap

• Impact from the side at 30mph into the vehicle side structure

• Side impact against a pole at 20mph

The new family MPV also recorded excellent results in the important child protection sub-section. Thanks to ISOFIX and top tether child seat anchors being fitted as standard, the new Touran achieved over 89% of the available points. In the pedestrian protection category, the Touran was given a total score of 71% with recognition of the Touran’s numerous engineering features designed to reduce the risk of injury to passers-by.

Safety equipment includes airbags for driver and front-seat passenger (with front-seat passenger airbag deactivation and including knee airbag on the driver's side) and a head airbag system for front and rear-seat passengers, including side airbags. The new Touran also has systems such as Electronic Stability Control (ESC), including ABS with Brake Assist, Automatic Post-Collision Braking, a Tyre Pressure Monitoring System and Driver Alert on board as standard.
