Safety is built into the DNA of every Renault. The entire Renault range is designed to provide protection to those travelling in the vehicle.

The vehicle’s structure protects occupants by absorbing much of the impact energy, while cabin-based retention systems soak up the rest of the energy.

Renault’s third-generation System for Restraint and Protection (SRP) is a safety innovation which is still unique on the market, and our range of passenger protection systems includes active anti-submarining airbags, high-performance rear impact absorbing seats and headrests, dual side impact sensors and advanced child safety systems.

Active anti-submarining airbag

Collision protection which is equally effective for both 3 and 5 door cars.

Rear impact absorbing seats and headrests

Maximum protection against whiplash.

Side impact protection

A world first in side-impact protection.

Renault's technologically advanced driver assistance systems are designed to compensate for driver errors and to provide critical, potentially life-saving intervention in extreme driving situations.

Available on many models, this equipment includes optimized braking with ABS and emergency brake assist (EBA); ESC (electronic stability control) with CSV understeer control; and the Four Control chassis with four-wheel steering which provides unparalleled steering precision.


As far as child safety is concerned, nothing is too much for Renault. Because children are more fragile and vulnerable than adults, and to better understand how to protect them in serious collisions, Renault participated in the European research programmes CHILD and CREST, based chiefly on the observations made from 669 real-life car accidents with children on-board.

Thanks to this work, Renault has been able to develop its own testing method to endow child seats with the same level of safety as adult seating systems.

For each new car, Renault ensures that seats can be correctly fitted and that they meet particularly rigorous protection requirements.
