Safety was never a priority in the Indian market. It was often sidelined for efficiency and features. However, of late, we are seeing the change with more awareness in this aspect. More and more cars are being tested with Global NCAP, which is a non-profit organisation. GNCAP has tested several models and today it has released crash test results of four more cars. What do these new crash test reports reveal? In today’s article let’s talk about Scorpio-N safety rating and more.
Mahindra Scorpio-N safety rating
Mahindra continues where it left at the Global NCAP. Last year, the XUV700 scored a 5-star rating and now the Mahindra Scorpio has scored a 5-star rating in adult occupant protection. The Scorpio-N scored 29.25 points out of 34 available. It scored a 3-star rating in child occupants scoring 28.93 points out of 49. This makes the Scorpio-N the safest ladder-on-frame chassis SUV in India (as per GNCAP test results).
The Swift has scored a disappointing 1-star in adult occupant protection. It is a downgrade from the 2-stars it scored in earlier protocols. The Swift scored 19.19 points out of 34 in adult occupant protection. It scored 16.68 points out of 49 in child occupant protection resulting in a 1-star rating.
Like the Swift, the S-Presso scored a disappointing 1-star in adult occupant protection. The S-Presso has slightly improved its rating as it scored 0 stars under earlier protocols. The S-Presso scored 20.03 points out of 34 in adult occupant protection. It scored 3.52 out of 49 in child occupant protection resulting in a 0-star rating.
Scorpio safety rating – Maruti Ignis
The Ignis is the worst-performing Maruti model in the new test results. It scored 1-star but scored just 16.48 points out of 34 points in adult occupant protection, which is the lowest. In child occupant protection, it scored 3.86 points out of 49 in child occupant protection resulting in a 0-star rating.
