The Maruti Suzuki Ertiga has scored a safety rating of three stars in the latest results of crash tests undertaken by Global NCAP. The three-star rating is applicable for both, adult and child occupation protection.

David Ward, CEO and President, Global NCAP, said, “The Maruti Suzuki Ertiga achieves a creditable three stars for both adult and child occupant protection, but it’s obvious to us that more can and should be done to improve overall protection levels for cars sold in the market. The Indian government’s crash test standards are clearly helping to eliminate any new zero star cars from the market, and we will continue to work with them to ensure the push of regulatory requirements is complimented by the pull of consumer awareness, encouraging the demand for ever higher levels of safety.”

The Maruti Ertiga offers two frontal airbags as standard. Its structure was rated as a borderline unstable performance which can and should be improved. Its footwell area was rated as unstable and pedals displacement showed risks to the lower legs of the driver. Head and neck protection for adult occupants was good. Chest protection for passenger was good and driver chest received marginal protection. The passenger pre-tensioner failed to work properly.

Child occupant protection showed poor results for the 18-month old dummy with the CRS installed forward-facing while global best practice indicates a rearward-facing position offers better protection for this age group. The Ertiga offers Isofix anchorages and Seat Belt Reminders (SBR) in the front seats as standard.
