Top 10 Safest Made-in-India Cars – Global NCAP

Tata Nexon Crash Test 5 star

Earlier this year, Global NCAP crash tested 4 of the popular cars in India under the campaign #SaferCarsForIndia. Maruti Wagon R, Ertiga, Hyundai Santro and the Datsun rediGO were crash tested at a speed of 64kmph, and the results are shocking. While Maruti Wagon R and the Hyundai Santro received only 2 stars, the Datsun redi-GO gets poor 1 star rating. The Ertiga managed to score 3 star rating in the crash test.

Tata Nexon – 5 stars
Mahindra Marazzo – 4 stars
Toyota Etios – 4 Stars
Tata Zest – 4 stars
Maruti Vitara Brezza – 4 stars
Volkswagen Polo – 4 stars
Maruti Ertiga – 3 stars
Ford Aspire – 3 stars
Honda Mobilio – 3 stars
Renault Duster – 3 stars

Global NCAP has also released the new list of car crash tests, which reveals the safest cars for India. What’s interesting is that many of the high-selling cars have scored low ratings as compared to cars that are not so popular and sell in fewer numbers. The Tata Nexon is the safest made-in-India car with 5-star safety rating. It is also the only car in India to get 5-star safety rating from the Global NCAP. Tata Nexon is doing decent in terms of sales, but it is still behind the likes of the Vitara Brezza and the Hyundai Venue in terms of sales.

Mahindra Marazzo Crash Test

Mahindra Marazzo grabs second position with 4-star safety rating. It is also the only 7-seater MPV to get 4-star safety rating. Tata Zest, Maruti Vitara Brezza, Toyota Etios and Volkswagen Polo also secured 4 star safety ratings in the crash test by Global NCAP. Maruti Ertiga, Honda Mobilio, Renault Duster and Ford Aspire secured 3 stars in crash test safety ratings. Datsun Redi-GO and Renault Kwid secured 1 star safety ratings and their body shells were found unstable during crash test. Popular cars including Mahindra Scorpio, Maruti Celerio, Hyundai i10 and Maruti Alto received 0 stars in crash test by Global NCAP.
