NEW DELHI: Global crash test agency NCAP on Monday said vehicle safety standards in India are dramatically improving.
UK-based Global New Car Assessment Programme serves as a platform worldwide to promote the most important motor vehicle safety standards issued by the United Nations.
Global NCAP took to Twitter to upload a series of cars undergoing crash tests. The video begins with the tests of Tata Nano and Hyundai i10 recorded in 2013. The video showcases several cars over the years.
The second set of cars that were assessed by the organisation included Tata Tigor, Tata Tiago, Mahindra XUV 300, Tata Altroz, Maruti Suzuki Ertiga, Maruti Suzuki Wagon-R, Hyundai Santro, Datsun redi-GO, Tata Nexon, Mahindra Marazzo, Maruti Suzuki Swift, Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza, Renault Duster, Ford Aspire and many more.
Global NCAP took to Twitter and to convey the dramatic improvement in vehicle safety standards in India. More than 30 models were tested by the organisation and 3- and 4-star rating was a common sight to see, which brought out a huge contrast from initial Global NCAP results in which almost every car scored zero stars.
Three cars that stood out of the lot were the Mahindra XUV 300, Tata Altroz and Tata Nexon that scored a 5-star rating.Source: Times of India
