      Brezza showing was quite impressive. The body shell remained stable and very less damage beyond A pillar. I think the way engine was decimated, took out most of the energy (which is good). I wasn't expecting Maruti to score that high that bias is gone now.

      Something wrong with Maruti as they usually score only 0 stars . Is RC Bhargava still in Maruti? If Maruti has scored 4 inspite of Bhargava then it's a great achievement!!

      So you appear once in a blue moon just to bash Maruti and Bhargava?

      Wow that is a surprise. I think most cars going forward will be 3stars or more. When I bought the car I did not even care about it.

      Maruti is back to form.

      RC Bhargava's magical touch can be seen on the Swift

      He seemed to infected even Mr. Osamu Suzuki.
      Earlier European versions of the Swift used to get 5 stars in the Euro NCAP tests,
      but this 3rd gen got just 3 stars in the Euro NCAP

      Bro Euro NCAP underwent some very stringent changes a few years ago in 2014..... given the high speeds on their roads which are highest in the world
      Simple simple things drop the rating such as no automatic braking, radar etc
      3 star now is equivalent to the 5 stars before 2014.....
      You may check most cars are scoring much lower because of this

      Vehicle safety: New Euro NCAP requirements - VDA

      Why else would Punto score ZERO stars in EuroNCAP

      Very true
      Unfortunately some sheeple still feel sheet metal=safety even though their beloved Euro cars are also getting lighter and lighter
      i20 NCAP is further proof that Maruti is the target of alot of unnecessary hate even though the competition isnt much better either
