Safer cars for India initiative is working out well for India as many cars are being recognized as safe or not. New cars are being tested regularly which is helping the buyers in a better decision and also enhancing the brand quality of manufacturers. So, here is the updated list of the top 10 safest cars of India right now.
Top 10 Safest Cars Of India
XUV300 is the safest car of India securing 5-star safety rating in the NCAP tests. For adult safety, it secures 5-star rating and for child safety, it gets 4 stars. Its top-end variant comes with seven airbags which makes it even safer.
Tata Altroz is the safest hatchback that you can buy, securing a safe 5-star rating for adult occupants and 4-star rating for child occupants. Even its top-end variant is offered with dual airbags only.
Tata Nexon was the first car in India to score a 5-star rating, which made big headlines. It gets 5 star rating for adult occupants and 3 star rating for child occupants. Even here, you get dual airbags only on the top-spec XZ (O) variant.
This is the latest entrant in this list and Mahindra’s third safest car out there. The lifestyle SUV and the safest off-roader has scored 4 star rating for child occupants and even adult occupants. On all the variants, you only get dual front airbags as standard.
Tiago is the safest hatchback that you can buy under a budget of Rs 6 Lakhs. In its segment, many cars have scored 0 or 1 star rating and even come with just a driver side airbag as standard. It gets 4 star rating for adult occupants and 3 star for child occupants.
Volkswagen Polo being one of the safest hatchbacks is quite important and makes up for its brand value. It was tested many years ago with dual airbags as it managed to score 4 star rating for adult occupant and 3 star for child occupants. Even the non airbag variants scored 3 star rating for child occupants.
Mahindra Marazzo securing a 4-star rating is amazing because of its structure as an MPV. With dual airbags as standard fitment, it gets 4 star rating for adult occupants and 2 star rating for child occupants. The latter is where it feels something amiss.
Maruti Vitara Brezza
While Etios has scored marks than Vitara Brezza, it is sadly not sold anymore. Brezza is the safest SUV from the stable of Maruti Suzuki, defying all the bad impression created by its younger siblings. Brezza scores 4 star safety rating, with 2 stars for child occupants.
Maruti Suzuki Ertiga
Maruti Suzuki Ertiga is the second safest car from the Gurgaon based manufacturer, scoring 3 stars. It gets 3 stars each for adult and child safety, which technically makes it the safest MPV for kids.
The last and tenth safest car in India is Ford Aspire and Figo, both technically having the same body and platform. Aspire scores a satisfying 3 star safety rating, where 3 stars are for adult safety and 2 stars for child safety. However, its top end variant gets six airbags which will increase the safety more.
