Global NCAP has crash tested the India made Honda Amaze for the African market.
Global NCAP is crash testing India made export models of the Suzuki Ignis and Honda Amaze for the African market. While the Ignis scored 3-stars, the Honda Amaze has scored a healthy 4-star rating. The compact sedan tested is the base model which comes with the same safety features, in fact a few less safety features as the India-spec Amaze.
The car tested here is the new gen Honda Amaze that has scored 4-star for adult occupant protection and 1-star for child occupant protection. The car has been tested at 64 km/hr with 40 percent off-set. The bodyshell integrity of the Amaze has been declared as stable by the Global NCAP.
The Honda Amaze has scored 14.08 points out of 17 for adult protection. However, the compact sedan scores poor on child protection with 8.16 points out of 49. According to the crash test reports, the protection offered to the driver and passenger’s head and neck was good. Chest of the front passengers showed adequate protection.
Driver and passenger knees showed protection as marginal. The bodyshell was rated as stable and it was capable of withstanding further loadings. The footwell area is considered stable too. The car offers standard SBR for driver for the African market. The Amaze has scored high on Global NCAP crash tests and we believe it will comply well with the upcoming safety norms.
