      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!!

      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.

      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

      Tata Nexon becomes first ever Indian car to get 5 stars in GNCAP crash test.

      https://auto.ndtv.com/news/tata-nexo...home-topscroll

      After scoring 4 stars in Global NCAP's crash test in August this year, the Tata Nexon has made history by going the distance and becoming India's first ever 5 Star car. The Nexon has achieved this by scoring 16.06 points out of a possible 17 - the highest as yet for any Indian made car. That this feat comes from an Indian manufacturer rather than a multinational is of significant importance. The car also underwent a side impact crash test, which is necessary to achieve this rating. Gunter Butschek, MD, Tata Motors told carandbike, "The Nexon achieving 5 stars at Global-NCAP is an exemplary achievement, and fortifies our intent for the future product portfolio."

      But what really helped the Tata Nexon to go from 4 to 5 stars? Alejandro Furas, Technical Director at Global NCAP explains, "The ABS, or anti-locking brakes, in a full channel version is a standard fitment for all the cars, so all the Nexon's wheels have ABS in four channels. At the same time, the seat belt reminder was also now introduced by the manufacturer as a standard feature for driver and passenger side as well." The Tata Nexon's body shell and structure have remained unchanged since the August test, and it always had dual airbags as standard anyway. The car also retains its 3 star rating for child occupant safety.

      Mayank Pareek, President, Passenger Vehicle Business Unit, Tata Motors says, "A few years back, nobody believed that safety would sell in India. However, today's Indian customers have evolved and are better exposed to the international market. They are more conscious towards safety and have started putting vehicle safety amongst the top priorities of car purchase."

      Tata plans to keep pushing the safety agenda and wants all future cars to meet either 5 or a minimum 4 star safety rating. It is likely the next car to be tested will be the upcoming Harrier compact SUV, though Tata is also keen to showcase the build quality of its smaller cars like the Tiago and Tigor.

      Mahindra Marazzo Gets 4 Star Crash Rating From Global NCAP

      https://auto.ndtv.com/news/mahindra-...l-ncap-1959184

      The Mahindra Marazzo has become the first-ever made in India MPV or multi-purpose vehicle to get a 4 star crash safety rating from Global NCAP. The Indian company has been working very hard to implement a new safety ethos in its manufacturing, and the Marazzo is the first vehicle to display this intent. carandbike had exclusive access to the test as always. The Mahindra Marazzo has all the safety equipment as standard, and this includes ABS, dual airbags, and even the front passenger and driver seatbelt reminder. Rajan Wadhera, President - Automotive Sector, M&M told carandbike, "This is a proud moment for Mahindra as the 4 star rating for Adult Occupation Protection reiterates our commitment towards safety. We have designed the Marazzo with many new safety features to ensure a safe ride for our customers. With Safety being at the forefront for all our vehicles, I am sure that this recognition will spur us to achieve higher safety parameters for our entire range of vehicles".

      The Mahindra Marazzo has received 4 stars for adult front occupant protection and also scored 2 stars for child occupant protection. This is also the highest score for any Mahindra car as well, and also higher than any other Indian made MPV tested so far by Global NCAP. The Renault Lodgy, Chevrolet Enjoy, and Maruti Suzuki Eeco had all failed their respective tests. The Honda Mobilio had also previously received zero stars, but a subsequent retest with dual airbags being made standard had resulted in a 3 star rating.

      The Marazzo was jointly developed by Mahindra R&D in Chennai and the Mahindra Automotive North America (MANA) development centre. Representatives from both were present to witness this test. Mahindra would be proud, as this result now sets the foundation for its future products. Sources within the company say Mahindra will always aim for 4 or 5 stars and no lower for any upcoming models. The company's next launch will be a subcompact SUV codenamed S201.

      Global NCAP had the car shipped in from India a few days earlier. And it underwent a frontal offset crash test at 64 kmph - the Global NCAP test protocol - at the ADAC crash test lab near Munich, Germany. This is more stringent than the new crash norms being implemented by the Indian government, which will see cars needing a 56 kmph test. At first glance, the Marazzo appeared to have done well. Good structural integrity was visually evident, due to the lack of any deforming of the A-pillar and of any perceptible intrusions into the cabin. The analysis that was carried out in the subsequent days, presented the strong result.


      Double Cheers for both Tata and Mahindra!!
