Global NCAP surpasses 50 models milestone in India, Nissan Magnite and Renault Kiger receive four-star safety ratings
With the presentation of the program's latest crash data today, Global NCAP has surpassed the 50 model milestone for automobiles evaluated in the Indian market. In the latest crash testing performed by Global NCAP as part of its safer vehicles for India campaign, the Nissan Magnite and Renault Kiger received four-star safety ratings.
For adult occupant protection, the Nissan Magnite received four ratings, while child occupant protection received two stars. The car was put through its paces in its most basic safety configuration, which included two front airbags and anti-lock brakes. During the inspection, the SUV was found to have a solid construction and provide just limited protection to the driver's chest.
The Renault Kiger, which is based on the Nissan Magnite's chassis, received four stars for adult occupant protection and two stars for child occupant protection. The Kiger was put through its paces in its most basic safety configuration, which included two frontal airbags and anti-lock brakes. During the inspection, it was discovered that the structure was unstable and that the driver's chest was only marginally protected. The model has ISOFIX anchorages, however they are hidden inside the seat fabric and are not visible to the customer.
The Honda Jazz received four stars for adults and three stars for child occupant safety. Because the Honda Jazz lacks ISOFIX anchorages, the CRS was put to the test with adult seatbelts. Following worldwide best practise, Honda chose to put both kid dummies in a rearward-facing position. This model comes equipped with a lap belt in the back centre seat, but no ESC or side head impacts protection.
For adult and child occupant safety, the Honda City (4th Gen) received four stars. The Honda City (4th Gen) was put through its paces in terms of safety, with two front airbags, ISOFIX anchorages and ABS. During the inspection, it was discovered that the structure and footwell region was unstable, that the ISOFIX anchorages provided appropriate child occupant safety, and that one of the child dummies was rearward facing.
Alejandro Furas, Global NCAP Secretary-General said, "This is an important milestone moment for our crash testing in India, with fifty models tested to date. There has been significant progress on vehicle safety design since we began our tests in 2014 but, as we see from our latest results, there is still more to be done to achieve the high safety standards that consumers in India rightly demand. It has been encouraging to see some leading Indian manufacturers respond so well to the #SaferCarsforIndia challenge, but also rather disappointing that major global brands fall short on safety in India whilst comfortably exceeding these requirements in other global markets."
