A pillar deformation like the case of this Swift is very serious concern considering the crash tests are conducted at certain low speed and many other cars scoring similar or better ratings come out in better state without receiving any such deformation.

What I read from such result is that if the crucial structure components like A pillar receives damage like the above Swift at a speed assuming something like 52 km/hr then what will happen if the car is crashed at little greater speeds like 60km/hr or 80km/hr or more?

Now take another case where structure of another car comes out clean in the same crash test without any such deformations in the structure then it means structure of that car can tolerate impacts greater than the previously tested 52km/hr speed. Maybe the structure of this car doesn't deform at 60km/hr or maybe can tolerate even higher speeds like 80km/hr or so which can only be known if tested at such greater speeds. But one can imagine what will happen to that Swift if crashed at greater than the standard crash test speeds.

What about the Ritz, I think it has the same safety rating like the previous generation of Swift and the same structural rigidity ?

Suzuki Cars in ASEAN NCAP test - 2016 gets 4 star rating, Hyundai's Eon gets ZERO Crash rating!

Indonesia made Ertiga and Thailand made CIAZ gets 4 Star ASEAN NCAP Crash Rating!

Ciaz - Adult Occupant Protection (AOP) with 14.56 points / 16.00
Ertiga - Adult Occupant Protection AOP) with 12.39 point /16.00

Renault India's response,

Quote:
Global NCAP had tested the Kwid model that was in the developing stage. Global NCAP will test the latest Kwid soon.
Quote:
In that list, we were the only manufacturer that was acknowledged for putting more safety norms in the entry level car and that is the positive sign. So, Kwid will exceed all safety norms earlier
Quote:
Kwid continues to be a popular model among the entry level buyers due to excellent value proposition if offers. It is a global car. While we are meeting all the safety requirements of current regulations in India, we will be far exceeding even the requirements the Indian government will be putting in 2017 and 2019

On a lighter note, this guy has gone ahead and done a stand-up act on the entire topic. IMO not his best act but still worth a watch.

Keen to hear others' opinions too...
Sure you are right...

The assessors not only look at the forces that are transmitted to the crash test dummy. They also look at certain other parameters as well.

The vehicle body is observed for additional load paths or for structural integrity after crash. In this example, the A Pillar deformation would apply a Structural Modifier (-ve points). Other modifiers for air bags, steering wheel, etc. are also applicable based on the observations made by the assessor.

You can go through this document to better understand the concept behind the assessments made: http://s3.amazonaws.com/cdn.ancap.co...pdf?1417518157

(Please note that this document is protected by copyright and hence do not post the file / contents as such.)

Kindly note that NCAP is an body which assesses the vehicle crash performance over and above the minimum requirements stated by the governing laws of the country. Government laws mention the minimum criteria to meet for crash. Since, all saleable vehicles have to meet this, NCAP acts as an body to compare the cars and differentiate which are better. So NCAP bodies usually change the assessment criteria every 2/3 years period. This is why the ratings for one year do not apply for subsequent year models.

Though not for India , South Africa reveals its least safe vehicles - some cars are of interest to India!

Hyundai i10 in SA seem to have just a Passenger Airbag and No driver airbag Looks like an error by Saferi IMO

There is always at least one person in the car (when it is moving!) and that's the driver. They don't think the driver needs protecting? If you are right, this is unbelievably stupid.
