Five Indian car models – Renault’s Kwid, Maruti’s Celerio and Suzuki Eeco, Mahindra’s Scorpio and Hyundai’s Eon – all scored a zero in the 2016 Global NCAP test.

Three versions of Kwid were checked in the crash test, and all three failed to meet the parameters.
Results of the global test were released in the national capital.

Commenting on the results, David Ward, Secretary General of Global NCAP said, “The latest SaferCarsforIndia results show how important it is for cars to have a body shell that can remain stable in a crash. This is an absolutely crucial pre-requisite for occupant safety together with fitment at least of front air bags. It is very surprising that a manufacturer like Renault introduced the Kwid initially lacking this essential feature. Global NCAP strongly believes that no manufacturer anywhere in the world should be developing new models that are so clearly sub-standard. Car makers must ensure that their new models pass the UN’s minimum crash test regulations, and support use of an airbag.”
