Most unsafe? Indian cars with poor safety rating at Global NCAP

The Citroen eC3 electric hatchback made in India has received a zero-star rating in the Global NCAP crash test, raising concerns about its safety. The model managed to secure only one star in the child occupant safety test, highlighting major safety issues.

The eC3 from French auto giant Citroen failed the recent crash test, with the model securing a zero-star rating for adult occupant protection due to poor chest protection. Additionally, the child occupant protection received just one star as the model lacks essential safety features like three-point belts in all positions and a passenger airbag disconnection switch.

Maruti WagonR, a popular hatchback in India, also scored poorly in safety tests, receiving a one-star safety rating in Global NCAP crash tests. The hatchback fared even worse in child protection tests, raising concerns about the overall safety standards of the model.

In 2022, Maruti Suzuki faced criticism for its poor safety ratings, with models like Swift and S-Presso receiving just one-star ratings in both adult and child occupant protection categories. The lack of adequate safety features in these models has sparked a debate about the safety standards of Indian-made cars.

The Renault Kwid, another popular hatchback in India, also failed to impress in Global NCAP crash tests, scoring just one star in both adult and child protection categories. Despite being a best-selling model, the Kwid’s safety ratings raise questions about the prioritization of safety in Indian car manufacturing.
