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.
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?
