In another round of crash-testing cars under its #SaferCarsForIndia campaign, the Global NCAP has now released the results for cars including the second-gen Hyundai Creta. The compact SUV has secured three stars for both adult and child occupation. It was tested in its most basic safety spec version. Its cousin, the Kia Seltos, had received a similar rating as well (three stars for adult occupant protection and two for child occupant protection).

Adult Occupant Protection

8 out of 17 points (3 stars)

8.03 out of 17 points (3 stars)

Child Occupant Protection

28.29 out of 49 points (3 stars)

15 out of 49 points (2 stars)

The Creta received three stars for adult occupant protection, scoring a poor eight points out of 17. While protection to the driver’s head was rated ‘adequate’, the same was ‘good’ for the co-driver’s head. The necks of both driver and co-driver showed ‘good’ protection. Also, while protection to the driver’s chest was labelled ‘marginal’, the same was ‘good’ for the co-driver. Both their knees received ‘marginal’ protection.

The driver’s tibias got ‘weak and adequate’ protection, while cover for the co-driver’s tibias was adjudged ‘good and adequate’. Both its body shell and footwell area were rated as ‘unstable’.

When child occupant protection is concerned, the SUV got the same three-star score as well. It achieved 28.29 out of 49 points. The child seat for the 3-year-old dummy was facing forward but it could not prevent forward jerking of the head while also offering ‘weak’ protection to the chest. On the other hand, the child seat for the one-and-a-half-year-old dummy was facing rearward, and it provided 'good' protection to the head and chest.
