A new round of crash safety testing by the Australasian New Car Assessment Program (ANCAP) has seen 5-Star ratings awarded to Audi's Q3 and the Renault Megane.

The release of these latest results follows news this week of a 5-Star rating for Holden's upcoming Volt extended-range electric vehicle.

The ANCAP scores of both the Q3 and Megane were drawn from sister organisation Euro NCAP, which shares its testing criteria with the Australian program.

 

Renault Megane

The Megane scored a total of 15.83 points out of 16 in the offset crash test, with the passenger compartment holding its shape well and only a slight risk of serious chest injury to the driver.

A full 16 points were awarded in the side-impact test, and the full two points in the optional pole test.

Standard safety features in the Megane include dual front airbags, side airbags and head-protecting side curtains.

Antilock brakes (ABS), electronic brakeforce distribution (EBD) and electronic stability control (ESC) are also standard.

Intelligent seat belt reminders are fitted both front seats (all seats have seat belt reminders in Europe). Pretensioners are fitted to the front seat belts to reduce slack in the event of a crash.
