The 2nd generation of Dacia Sandero (the 2013 model) has received a four-star safety rating from Euro NCAP. Actually, the result is not bad at all considering the low price of the hatchback.

2013 Dacia Sandero received 80% rating for adult occupants and 79% for child occupants. The car has bad score in pedestrian protection – just 57%. Due to the absence of a rear seatbelt reminder and electronic speed limiter, the Romanian hatchback was given even worse score - 55% rating for safety assistance.

Although the new Sandero has one star more compared to its predecessor, it is still way behind the new Clio, which received full five-star rating from Euro NCAP. It provided 88% adult protection and a 99% for its safety assistance systems.
