Five Indian car models fail crash tests conducted by NCAP

Five Indian car models fail crash tests conducted by NCAP
19 May 2016 Current Affairs: Five Indian car models got zero star ratings after failing in the crash tests conducted by the Global New Car Assessment Programme (Global NCAP) on 17 May 2016. The cars that failed the crash tests are the Renault Kwid, Maruti Suzuki’s Celerio and Eeco, Mahindra Scorpio and Hyundai Eon.

Global NCAP participated in a two-day conference on road safety hosted by the Institute of Road Traffic Education in Faridabad.

Highlights of the crash tests conducted by NCAP : The results showed low levels of adult occupant protection in the five models.  The Renault Kwid was tested in three versions including one with airbags, but none got a star for adult safety. As for the Scorpio, it scored zero stars in adult occupant protection and two in child occupant protection. The collapse of the structure combined with the lack of airbags indicated high probability of life threatening injuries for adult passengers. Hyundai Eon, which is offered in the standard version without airbags, scored zero stars in adult occupant protection with two in child occupant protection. Global NCAP cited unstable structure in the passenger compartment and lack of airbags as the cause.The non-airbag Maruti Suzuki Celerio and Eeco scored zero stars in adult occupant protection and one star in child occupant protection.

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

These results will certainly link up to Centre’s decision to mandate front and side impact crash tests from October 2017.
