Only a single made-in-India car managed to secure full marks in this class

While most popular Indian cars continue recording dismal performances in the Global NCAP’s safety tests there is a slight bright side to look forward to as well. Quite a few mass-market cars have managed to get decent scores while only one has gone on to achieve the top honours as well. Here are the ones made in India that scored the highest marks in GNCAP’s stringent tests.

It must be noted that GNCAP usually takes the base variants of the subject car with maximum crash test speeds reaching upto 64kmph.

Maruti Ertiga Gets 3-Star Rating In Global NCAP Crash Tests

Maruti Suzuki Ertiga: 3 Stars

Body shell integrity: Unstable 

The Ertiga secured a decent three stars for adult as well as child occupant safety but its body shell integrity was rated as unstable. This variant was equipped with dual front airbags, ABS with EBD, front seatbelt reminders and ISOFIX as standard. 

Maruti Ignis crash test

Maruti Suzuki Ignis: 3 Stars

The made-in-India Ignis tested is sold in the African market. It managed to get a three-star rating for adult occupant but despite ISOFIX availability, it got only one star for child occupant protection.
