2012 Lancia Voyager/Chrysler Grand Voyager EuroNCAP Crash Tests (Frontal, Side, & Pole Impacts)
The passenger compartment remained stable in the frontal impact. Dummy readings indicated poor protection for the knees and femurs of the passenger occupant. The steering column and facia also provided hazards to the driver occupant. The Voyager scored maximum points for the protection it provided in the side barrier test. In the more severe side pole impact, protection was good in most body areas and adequate for the chest. The front seat and active head restraints provided marginal protection against whiplash injuries in a rear-end collision.
Based on dummy readings in the frontal and side impact tests, the Voyager scored full points for protection of the 3 year old child. Forward movement of the 3 year dummy, sat in a forward-facing restraint, was not excessive and both the 3 year and 18 month dummies were properly contained by their restraints in the side impact, minimising the risk of dangerous head contact. However, the ISOFIX child restraints are mounted on support stands, the legs of which rest on storage compartments in the floor of the rear seating positions. For the 18 month dummy, the cover of this storage compartment partially collapsed during the frontal impact and Euro NCAP awarded no points for compatibility of the restraints with the vehicle. Lancia has stated that they will implement improvements to eliminate this concern. The passenger airbag cannot be disabled, preventing the fitment of a rearward-facing child restraint in that seating position. The sun-visor label warning of the dangers of using a rearward facing child seat in that position were presented in the relevant EU languages and did not meet the Euro NCAP requirements.
The Voyager is equipped with an 'active' bonnet. Sensors in the bumper determine when a pedestrian has been struck and actuators lift the bonnet to provide greater clearance to hard structures underneath. Lancia showed that the system worked for a wide range of pedestrian statures and over a range of speeds, so the car was tested with the system deployed. Although some areas were good, most areas likely to be struck by a pedestrian's head offered poor protection. The area likely to be struck by a pedestrian's hip and pelvis was poor in all areas tested and scored no points. The bumper offered good protection to a pedestrian's legs.
Electronic stability control is standard and met Euro NCAP's requirements. Speed limitation devices are not availble. There is a seatbelt reminder system for the driver and passenger seats only.
