As you can see in the picture above the article, it went not quite as planned, as familiebilen Volkswagen Sharan recently was exposed to the tribulations in the Euro NCAPs safety tests. A door in the rear sprang up during the so-called 'stakes-test'.
It writes multiple media, among other AutoExpress, and Euro NCAP itself.
Under the poles-the test sent a car into a 25 cm thick pole with about 32 km/h, and the aim is that it should simulate a collision with a tree or a telefonpæl. NCAP says that the type of collisions are often serious, and 'that the frequency of death and serious injury is high'.
By the test of the Sharan was the rear passenger door almost completely torn off the car itself. Therefore, the deducted points from the familiebilens total score by the test, as it of the internal safety organisation are assessed to pose a risk to passengers can smoke out', says the Euro NCAPs assessment of the result.

Overall, the car was, however, assessed to be a relatively safe car with a score of four out of five stars.
the Model was 89 percent in the protection of adults on board, while it was to a score of 78 percent for children in the car.
- Looks dramatically out
In Euro NCAP they explain that their data shows that crash tests-the dolls were in good condition, despite the fact that the door fell of.
- Stakes test is the most structurally challenging of all Euro NCAP-crashtestene. In the test showed the Volkswagen Sharan, a high level of protection for the vehicle occupants, and belt tensioner systems are well designed to prevent injuries, says Matthew Avery, board member of Euro NCAP, according to Auto Express.
He calls the dog 'worrying' that the door could fall off and informs that the points were deducted, because that, even if the vehicle total to assess safety was not compromised, would a passenger under extreme circumstances could smoke out of the door.
- A loose door looks dramatically out. The values in crash tests-dummies - the most critical part of the assessment - shows that the vehicle offers high levels of passive safety protection, says Avery.
