The safety virtue in the car has come up with a rising comprehension amongst buyers. Some buyers now prioritise safety over features and looks. This change in the winds has led manufacturers to bring safe cars to our nation and the government is also propagating it. The Indian government has made it mandatory for all passenger vehicle manufacturers to add 6 airbags to all of their vehicle lineup. This has led to the introduction of many new cars in India with 6 airbags. Which are those cars? Let’s take a look.
Cars with 6 airbags – Hyundai Grand i10 Nios
Hyundai has updated the Grand i10 Nios for the year 2023 with a new facelift update.

Just like its hatchback sibling, the Aura has also received a similar type of facelift update. We are talking about the Aura which has now received the 6 airbag treatment alongwith other updates. We can see similar updates carried over in the interiors that include a wireless charger, cruise control, MID, and more. In terms of exterior styling, the car looks more sophisticated with a void of sharp cuts and creases. The front looks subtle which is more inclined towards Hyundai’s current design language. The unique element of the car are the inverted ‘L’ LED DRLs.
