Recently, the Mahindra XUV300 was awarded 5 stars by Global NCAP.
While advocating safer cars for India, the Global New Car Assessment Programme (NCAP) has challenged car manufacturers like Maruti Suzuki, Volkswagen and Toyota to work towards making 5-star rated cars in India.
Recently, the CEO and President of Global NCAP presented the award to Tata Motors as Tata Altroz became the second from the Indian manufacturer to receive a 5-star rating in the Global NCAP crash test. The Tata Nexon was the first to achieve a 5-star rating in the Global NCAP crash test back in December 2018.
Just a few days ago, the Mahindra XUV300 was awarded 5 stars by Global NCAP. The latter, in fact, achieved the highest rating among all three models scoring 16.42 points out of 17 in adult occupant protection, and 37.44 points out of a possible 49 points, becoming the first car in India to score 4 stars for child occupant protection.
If we talk about 4-star rated cars, the Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza was the first Indian car to achieve 4 stars in Global NCAP crash test, in September 2018, followed by the Mahindra Marazzo in December 2018, and later the Honda Amaze in May 2019. The most recent ones to join the list are the 2020 Tata Tiago and Tigor facelifts, both of which scored 4 stars in Global NCAP crash test.
