Maruti Vitara Brezza Crash Test

In August, Tata’s first sub-4m SUV, the Nexon, became the fourth made-in India car -- after Polo, Etios and Zest -- to receive a 4-star rating at the Global NCAP. Now, a month later, its arch-rival, the Maruti Brezza, has also received a similar safety rating from the non-profit international car testing body.

4-Star (Adult Production)

Year Tested

Maruti Brezza (2-star child protection)


Tata Nexon (3-star child protection)


Tata Zest (2-star child protection)


Toyota Etios Range (2-star child protection)


Volkswagen Polo (3-star child protection)


In the front offset test, which is carried out at a speed of 64kmph, the protection offered to the driver and passenger head and neck was rated ‘Good’, which is the highest rating a car can receive. Chest protection for the driver was rated ‘Marginal’, while the passenger's chest showed ‘Good’ protection. Driver’s knees protection was rated ‘Marginal’ and passenger’s knees received ‘Marginal’ and ‘Good’ protection as they could be impacted by the structures behind the dashboard.

As far as child safety is concerned, despite the Isofix child seat anchors, the Brezza manages two stars only, unlike the Nexon’s three. The Child Occupant Protection rating was only two stars due to the forward-facing positioning of the 18-month-old dummy, which resulted in ‘Poor’ protection for head and marginal protection for the chest. However, the 3-year-old dummy received good protection. The markings for the ISOFIX anchorages were also incorrect according to Global NCAP testing protocols.

While the Maruti Brezza has received ‘Poor’ rating for the 18-month-old dummy, the Tata Nexon didn’t receive such low rating in any of the categories.

With none of the made-in India cars receiving a 5-star rating, the race for making the first 5-star rated made-in India car is still on. And there is surely a high possibility that Tata takes this crown with the Harrier considering that the mid-size SUV shares its platform with the Land Rover Discovery Sport, which has received 5 stars in the even more stringent Euro NCAP tests.
