WATCH: Five cars tested as unsafe by Global NCAP

How safe is your car really? Five small cars were recently put to the crash test by Global New Car Assessment Program (NCAP) in India which they all subsequently failed.

The cars, Renault Kwid, Maruti Suzuki Celerio, Maruti Suzuki Eeco, Mahindra Scorpio and the Hyundai Eon were all specifically designed for the Indian market. Each car scored zero in the precise test designed to encourage automakers into offering safer cars for all.

Although three different versions of the Kwid were tested, they all still managed to fail scoring zero for adult safety, including one featuring airbags.

According to Renault, there will be a fourth, safer version on the way, and Global NCAP is keen to put it to the test.

“The latest results show how important it is for cars to have a body-shell that can remain stable in a crash. This is an absolutely crucial pre-requisite for occupant safety together with fitment at least of front airbags.

It is very surprising that a manufacturer like Renault introduced the Kwid initially lacking this essential feature,” said Ward.
