Let us tell you that Maruti’s S-Presso scored 20.03 points for adult passenger protection and only 3.52 points for child occupant safety. The child seat was not able to prevent forward head movement during a frontal impact test for a 3-year-old child. However, for an 18-month-old child, the child seat provides good head protection but poor chest protection.
Maruti’s Swift is the biggest name in budget cars in India. The Swift scored 19.19 points for adult passenger safety and 16.68 points for child occupant protection.
In the side impact test, head protection, abdominal and pelvic protection were rated as good, while chest protection was rated as poor. Side pole impact test was not done as the car does not get side head protection.
In terms of protection, the Ignis scored 16.48 points for adult occupant protection and just 3.86 points for child occupant protection. The car provided head and neck protection for the driver and passenger. However, there was little protection on the driver’s chest. At the same time, the protection of the knees of the driver and the passenger was also not enough.
Hyundai cars are really strong. But it is really strange that Hyundai’s premium SUV, the Tucson, failed the car crash test. Actually, this expensive SUV with a range of Rs 27–34 lakh has proved to be a letdown in terms of car safety.
This car has been given a zero safety rating in LatinNCAP’s safety crash test. Latin NCAP has given this car a zero rating during the safety crash test. Let us tell here that the Tucson variant with two airbags has failed in the crash test. While the variant with its 6 airbags has been given a 3 Star safety rating.

The special thing is that the Honda Jazz available in India is also WR-V based, which is counted among the safest cars.
