Hyundai leads the race with seven offerings, followed by Kia and MG tied for the second spot

The Indian government only recently made it mandatory for all cars to come with dual front airbags as standard. The Ministry of Road, Transport and Highways (MoRTH) has now considered making side and curtain airbags mandatory as well from October 2022.

While most carmakers do not offer more than two airbags with the more affordable cars in their lineup, there are a fair few models offered with six airbags in their top variants.

Here is a list of all variants of the cars under Rs 20 lakh (ex-showroom) that are offered with six airbags -

Seven of the ten Hyundai cars priced under Rs 20 lakh are offered with 6 airbags in at least one trim, usually the top one. Essentially, every model from the i20 premium hatchback onwards is available with side and curtain airbags which leaves out the Santro, Grand i10 Nios and Aura.

MG offers three cars under Rs 20 lakh in India, Astor, Hector and Hector Plus; all of which are offered with 6 airbags in their better equipped and pricier variants. It should be noted that the Hector Plus 7-seater does not offer this safety feature.

Mahindra

XUV300

The XUV300 and XUV700 are two Mahindra cars to be offered with side airbags in their top variants. They also offer a driver knee airbag for a total of seven. The upcoming new-gen Scorpio is also expected to offer up to six airbags.

Tata

Tata only offers six airbags with its biggest SUVs, i.e. Harrier and Safari. While its smaller SUVs have earned 5-star safety ratings from Global NCAP, they only offer two airbags.

Honda

City

Rs 12.69 lakh

The fifth-gen City is currently the only Honda car to be offered with front, side and curtain airbags.

Skoda

Car

Price

Kushaq

Style AT (1-litre & 1.5-litre TSI)

Rs 16.49 lakh onwards

Slavia

Style (expected)

Rs 16 lakh onwards

With the Rapid gone, Kushaq is currently the only Skoda car on sale in India priced under Rs 20 lakh. It offers six airbags in the top trim with the automatic transmission for both engines. The upcoming Slavia sedan will also be offered with six airbags, likely in the top trim only.

Volkswagen

Car

Variant with 6 airbags

Price

Taigun 

Topline onwards

Rs 14.99 lakh

The Volkswagen Taigun also gets six airbags from the Topline variant onwards. Pricing for the top-end trim of the car starts from Rs 14.99 lakh, and goes up to Rs 17.99 lakh (both prices, ex-showroom). Currently, the Vento comes with only four airbags but its upcoming replacement will offer six as well.

While we expect this list to continue to grow in the coming months, it is unlikely for cars priced well under Rs 10 lakh to offer the additional airbags without a new mandate from the government. Stay tuned to CarDekho for more updates.

All prices are ex-showroom, New Delhi
