Thats the one thing that you can't argue with on modern Renaults,and thats the passenger and driver safety features.Some time ago,5th gear did a similar test with a then brand new Espace and a Mk1 Espace.The results were amazing.New Espace occupants would have walked away,old Espace passengers would have been stretcher(or worse) away..

Land Rovers have an horrendous safety record.If I remember rightly,one of the worst ever NCAP test results was for the Free Lander!

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
