A Global NCAP has crash-tested four made-in-India automobiles as part of the current round of new car assessment programs under the #SaferCarsForIndia initiative. A Renault Kiger, Nissan Magnite, Honda Jazz, and fourth-generation Honda City were among the new vehicles examined. What’s more, in the Global NCAP crash testing, all of these vehicles received a 4-Star adult occupant safety rating.
With this statement, India’s participation in the Global NCAP crash testing has achieved a half-century mark. New cars are progressively receiving a five-star safety rating, demonstrating that automakers are rising to the challenge posed by Global NCAP. This has become a must-have certification of certain Indian manufacturers’ dedication to safety.
Most recent Global NCAP Crash Test Results
#4 – (2 airbags) Nissan Magnite
The Nissan Magnite received four stars for adult occupant protection and two stars for child occupant safety. The Magnite was put through its paces in its most basic safety configuration, which included two front airbags and anti-lock brakes.
During the evaluation, the model demonstrated a sturdy construction and provided only limited protection to the driver’s chest. Surprisingly, the model is still marketed with a lap belt in the rear center seat rather than three-point belts, and without ISOFIX anchorages for Child Restraint Systems (CRS). As standard, there is no Electronic Stability Control (ESC) or side head impact protection.
#3 – (2 airbags) Renault Kiger
The Renault Kiger, which imparts a stage to the Nissan Magnite, accomplished four stars for grown-ups and two stars for youngster tenant security. The Kiger was tried in its most fundamental security spec fitted with two front-facing airbags and ABS. During the appraisal, it showed a temperamental design and minor assurance to the driver’s chest.
The model offers ISOFIX docks however they are not apparent to the shopper, they were covered by the seat texture. This model is presented with a lap belt in the back focus seat, without ESC and side head sway assurance as standard.

A Honda Jazz got four stars for adult occupant protection and three stars for child occupant protection. The Jazz was examined with more basic safety features, including two front airbags and ABS. During the evaluation, it revealed a stable form.
Because the Jazz does not provide ISOFIX anchors, the CRS was evaluated with adult seatbelts. Honda chose to install both kid dummies in the rearward facing position, in conformity with worldwide best practices. The model comes complete with such a lap belt in the back center seat, but no ESC or side head impacts protection.
#1 – (2 airbags) Honda City (4th Gen)

The model comes complete with a lap belt inside the back center seat, but no ESC or side head impacts protection.
“This is a utilizing this strategy event for our safety tests in India, having fifty vehicles tested to date,” stated Alejandro Furas, Secretary-General of Global NCAP. Since we began our tests in 2014, there has been substantial progress in-car safety design, but as our newest findings show, there is still work to be done to meet the high safety standards that Indian consumers justifiably demand.”
“It’s been encouraging to see several leading Indian manufacturers respond so effectively to the #SaferCarsforIndia challenge,” he continued, “but it’s equally sad to see large global brands fall short on safety in India while comfortably exceeding similar requirements in other global markets.”
