“Even though the total star rating of these cars appears respectable, Hyundai and Toyota’s ongoing refusal to equip safety features including such ESC and side body & head protection airbags as just a basic requirement for India is disheartening.” As a result, Global NCAP applauds the Indian government’s effort to increase side effect protection requirements, and Global NCAP will upgrade its test methodologies beginning in July. Only if these improved safety features are implemented as standard will the rating assessment be successful.”
“We have seen consistent improvement in the wellbeing rating of models tried in India throughout the most recent six years. It’s been particularly welcome that homegrown automakers in India have ascended to Global NCAP’s wellbeing challenge. Worldwide players like Toyota and Hyundai ought to take cues from them.”
