Here is a video you must watch to see what happens when a Mahindra Scorpio crashes into a Maruti Swift from behind. Swift has been infamous for being a not-so-tough vehicle. Its safety ratings also suggest the same. Mahindra Scorpio, on the other hand, is considered to be one of the most rugged and hardcore SUVs around, even though its safety rating was also not great. However, it was tested by the NCAP a long time before without any airbags. If the test were to happen today, we think it will secure a better safety rating for sure. Nevertheless, this video shows the impact of Scorpio tail-ending a Swift. Here are the details.
Watch Scorpio Crashes Into Swift
As the video shows, the Mahindra Scorpio crashes into the Maruti Swift from the rear. By the looks of it, it seems like the driver of the Swift might have had to apply the brakes suddenly. The driver of the Scorpio wasn’t able to react quickly enough and bangs into the boot of the hatchback. Now the impact doesn’t seem to be under the high-speed scenario. Still, the boot lid of the Swift is almost completely crumbled. The impact is also extended to the bumper which seems severely damaged. The bumper is broken in the middle. The damage to the Scorpio is also not trivial. The bumper and the front grille are visibly impacted. The bonnet has also experienced a hit. There is a minute deformation to the overall front fascia of the Scorpio.
The Swift, in its latest avatar, is a 2-star safety rated vehicle. The Mahindra Scorpio is due for the generation update. We have seen the spy shots of the SUV doing rounds for quite some time now. Mahindra is generally known for making rugged products with modern safety equipment. Therefore, when the new Scorpio gets launched, we believe it will have a strong safety rating. This incident where a Scorpio crashes into a Swift must give you an idea of buying vehicles with high safety ratings. A lot of unpleasant scenarios could be avoided on the road if you travel in a safer car. To read such interesting stories, make sure to follow Car Blog India.
