Default 9 Maruti Suzuki models meet new crash test norms

Nine of 15 Maruti Suzuki models meet new crash test norms as per Autocar India news. Also says "Maruti Suzuki has made public that the S-Cross, Ciaz, Ertiga, Vitara Brezza, Baleno, Dzire, Swift, Ignis and Celerio models already meet the future frontal, off-set-frontal, side impact and pedestrian crash norms". S Cross could be an exception, I still doubt the robustness of futuristic crash norms in India then...

Good news- I can sleep peacefully knowing that the Ciaz my parents drive is reasonably safe.

I think the norms will be slightly less stringent compared to the ones in USA, EU and Australia. Truth be told, I haven't bothered to check them out.

The average speed for a car is much lesser in India, and I won't be complaining if they change things like testing the frontal impact at 56 kmph instead of 64 kmph.

Too good to be true, unless Indian standards are totally different compared to global standards. Most of the MSIL offerings (except S Cross) in India will perform poorly on existing international standards.

There seem to some lobby behind these standards. It is difficult to believe that cars like Celerio are able to manage decent scores.

Euro NCAP tests of Celerio shows a 3 Star rating. If Maruti Suzuki is able to bring the same standards to the Indian car, it will get a decent safety rating.

Suzuki is capable of doing wonders ! The global NCAP score for the same care is ZERO

Can Maruti share the crash test videos and detailed reports of the 9 models it crash tested and found within acceptable limits? Without that it is tantamount to pure marketing gimmick, knowing how flimsy the Maruti models actually are in India barring the S Cross.

Our assessment program already mandate a reduced impact speed at 54 kmph than NCAP's 64.3 kmph.

Also a true safety assessment is not just limited to crash performance, it is also how well weighted and balanced the steering systems are, how well engineered the braking systems are, etc where we all know how Maruti cuts corners.
