Default Compromises on car safety by manufacturers for third world nations

Read the following article in economic times today. Sounds way too familiar with the indian auto story.

http://economictimes.indiatimes.com/...w/20021810.cms

Shows how the vehicle's internal rigidity is compromised to maximize profit. So swifts and i20s which boast of 5 start EURO NCAP rating, how much will they score if crash tested with India made models? Even if we provide them with 6 airbags and ESP will they score a 5* rating with compromises on structural integrity? This is one of the top reasons i am looking for a CBU car as my next one. When will our lives be treated as equal as an European or American?

Mods, please merge if a similar thread exists.

Default Re: Crash Safety - Are Figo, Eon, Etios, Liva & Brio Safe Enough?

Toyota Etios score 4 Stars in Global NCAP test

Source - Auto Car India

Quote:
In late 2015, the carmaker had decided to equip all of its Etios models with two airbags and two pretensioners and asked Global NCAP to test the car and provide a star rating for its crashworthiness.

The recent test of the Toyota Etios reveals a good level of adult occupant protection for the frontal passenger, achieving a rating of four stars and two stars in child occupant protection.
