Very,very few engines now a days are 'safe',as you put it.The only one that springs to my mind is the 1.2 engine fitted to some Fiat Punto's.....
I can't comment on the Renault
engine as I haven't any experience of them,but as yet we haven't had any problems reported about them on the forum.
Good luck with the new car.
I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
