1. Tata Altroz
Tata Motors is one of the safest car makers in the Indian car market. All new models of Tata cars come with 4 or 5 star NCAP safety rating. Talking about Tata Altroz, it is the safest premium hatchback in the country, which has been rated 5-star for adult safety and 3-star for child safety in the Global NCAP crash test.
Talking about the safety features, dual airbags have been given as standard in all variants of Tata Altroz. At the same time, side and curtain airbags are also available with dual airbags in its top variant.
2. Volkswagen Polo
German carmaker Volkswagen’s Polo hatchback is very much liked not only in India but across the world. Volkswagen is world-renowned for manufacturing reliable and high-performance cars. Volkswagen Polo (Volkswagen Polo) is being sold in India since 2010. Since then, many improvements have been made in the design and features of this car.
In the Global NCAP crash tests conducted in 2014, the Polo was successful in achieving 4-star safety ratings in adult safety and 3-star safety ratings in child safety. The company has been following the same premise of the safety features of this car since 2014, so the current Polo also comes with the same safety rating.
3. Maruti Suzuki Baleno
Maruti Baleno has not been tested by Global NCAP, but Euro NCAP has conducted crash tests on Baleno made in India. With the on-board radar-based braking system (automatic emergency braking), the Suzuki Baleno has garnered an overall 4-star safety rating. Without it, the Baleno gets only 3-star safety ratings. Since the Indian variant doesn’t have an automatic braking system, it only gets 3-star ratings. The global safety rating of Maruti Baleno will be revealed when it is tested by Global NCAP.
4. Toyota Glanza
Not many people will be aware that Toyota Glanza is a rebadged model of Maruti Baleno, in which no technical or mechanical changes have been made. It not only has the same platform and engine, but also the same body panels and even the same interior build. In such a situation, the safety rating of Baleno is directly applicable to the Glanza.
5. Hyundai i20
Hyundai i20 (Hyundai i20) was recently launched in India in its third generation avatar. The car is fairly new and therefore has not passed the Global NCAP test. The previous generation model (Elite i20) got 3-star safety ratings for adult safety and 2-star safety ratings for child safety. As far as the new generation model is concerned, we expect it to manage a better safety rating lane, unlike the recently tested Hyundai Grand i10 Nios.
6. Honda Jazz
The Honda Jazz (Honda Jazz) has been given several updates in the international market but it has not been updated after the 2015 facelift version in India. Honda Jaz managed to get a 5-star safety rating in the Euro NCAP and a 5-star safety rating in the Australian NCAP, which is quite impressive. However, as the Indian model is not updated, it falls short of its international models in safety.
