The Global New Car Assessment Programme (Global NCAP) was crash tested some of the Indian cars. In the crash test, only a single made-in-India car managed to secure full marks in this class. One of the major thing noted that GNCAP usually takes the base variants of the subject car with maximum crash test speeds reaching up to 64kmph. The crash-tested cars are Maruti Suzuki Ertiga, Maruti Suzuki Ignis, Hyundai i20, Toyota Etios, Honda Amaze, Maruti Vitara Brezza, Mahindra Marazzo, Tata Nexon.
Hyundai i20: 3 Stars
The Hyundai i20, known in India as the Elite i20, had three stars for the safety of adults, but only two for the safety of children. It was fitted with dual front airbags, EBD ABS, pre-tensioner front seatbelts and driver seatbelt reminder.
Maruti Suzuki Ignis: 3 Stars
The tested Ignis made-in-India is sold on the African market. It managed to get a three-star rating for the adult occupant, but despite the availability of ISOFIX, it only got one star for the protection of the child occupant. Other safety features offered include dual front airbags, EBD ABS and pre-tensioner front seatbelt, load limiters and reminder.
Maruti Suzuki Ertiga: 3 Stars
The Ertiga secured a decent three-star safety for both adults and children, but its integrity of the body shell was considered unstable. This variant had dual front airbags, standard ABS with EBD, front seatbelt reminders and ISOFIX.
Toyota Etios: 4 Stars
The dual airbag-equipped Etios hatchback has four adult stars and three children’s safety stars. Onboard security equipment included front seatbelt with pre-tensioners, ISOFIX and an ABS system with all five adjustable headrests.
Honda Amaze: 4 Stars
Honda’s subcompact sedan got a decent four-star rating for adult safety, but only one star turned out to be miserably weak for child safety. The model tested had dual front airbags, EBD ABS, ISOFIX, pre-tensioner front seatbelt and driver seatbelt reminder.
Maruti Vitara Brezza: 4 Stars
The Vitara Brezza also walked away after the crash test with a stable body shell. This model was given four adult stars and two child safety stars. Maruti provides dual front airbags, EBD ABS, ISOFIX anchorages, pre-tensioner front seatbelts and Vitara Brezza driver seatbelt alert.
Mahindra Marazzo: 4 Stars
The Marazzo, who received four stars for adult safety and two for the child occupant, is another MPV that makes it to the list. Mahindra provides the driver with standard dual front airbags, ISOFIX anchors, ABS, front seatbelt pre-tensioners and reminder seatbelt.
Tata Nexon: 5 Stars
The Tata Nexon was subjected to a second attempt after scoring four stars and came out with the honour scroll scoring the highest among these Indian-made cars. For the adult, it got five stars and for the protection of the child occupant three. The Tata SUV comes with dual front airbags, EBD ABS, ISOFIX, pre-tensioner front seatbelt and warning seatbelt.
