For a long time, the safety of the occupants was compromised by most of the leading car manufacturers in the country. India being a price sensitive market, car manufacturers have been compromising on the safety aspect in lieu of delivering products with better fuel efficiency figures and affordable pricing. Over the years, Global NCAP has been testing a range of cars for adult and child occupant safety under the #SaferCarsForIndia program. Under the latest round of crash test at 64kmph, three India manufactured cars have scored a full five stars rating, while five car models have scored four stars safety rating. Read below to learn more about the findings.

The compact SUV scored a full five stars rating for adult protection (scoring 16.42 out of 17) and four stars for child occupant protection (scoring 37.44 out of 49). The safety equipment list includes – front seatbelt pretensioners, driver and passenger frontal airbags, SBR, ISOFIX anchorages, and four-channel ABS.
