Crash Test Global Ncap India: Hyundai i10, VW Polo, Tata Nano, Ford Figo - 0 Stars
The first-ever independent crash tests of some of India's popular and
important small cars have shown a high-risk of life threatening injuries in
road crashes. All the cars selected by Global NCAP for testing in a frontal
impact at 64km/h received zero-star adult protection ratings.
The models tested included India's best-selling car, the Suzuki-Maruti Alto
800. The Tata Nano, Ford Figo, Hyundai i10 and Volkswagen Polo also
underwent the safety assessment. Combined sales of these five cars account
for around 20% of all the new cars sold in India last year. Global NCAP
chose the entry-level version of each model and as a result none were
fitted with air bags as standard. The results highlight major differences
in the structural integrity of the vehicles tested.
Max Mosley, Chairman of Global NCAP, said: "India is now a major global
market and production centre for small cars, so it's worrying to see levels
of safety that are 20 years behind the five-star standards now common in
Europe and North America. Poor structural integrity and the absence of
airbags are putting the lives of Indian consumers at risk. They have a
right to know how safe their vehicles are and to expect the same basic
levels of safety as standard as customers in other part of the world."
In the Suzuki-Maruti Alto 800, the Tata Nano and the Hyundai i10, the
vehicle structures proved inadequate and collapsed to varying degrees,
resulting in high risks of life-threatening injuries to the occupants. The
extent of the structural weaknesses in these models were such that fitting
airbags would not be effective in reducing the risk of serious injury. The
Ford Figo and Volkswagen Polo had structures that remained stable -- and,
therefore, with airbags fitted, protection for the driver and front
passenger would be much improved.
Coinciding with the Global NCAP tests, Volkswagen has decided to withdraw
the non-airbag version of the Polo from sale in India. Because of this,
Global NCAP agreed to a request from VW to assess a version of the Polo
that has two airbags fitted as standard as from now. Other manufacturers
had the same opportunity. The protection proved much better and this
airbag-equipped model received a four-star rating for adult occupant
protection. Consumers are encouraged to check which version of the Polo

NHTSA Side Pole Impact
A small-sized adult female crash test dummy is placed in the
driver's seat and is secured with a seat belt. The test vehicle,
angled at 75 degrees, is then pulled sideways at 20 mph (32km/h) into a
25-cm diameter pole at the driver's seating location. This test mimics a
side impact crash involving a narrow, fixed object like a utility pole or

Frontal Impact takes place at 64 Km/h, 40% of the width of the car striking
a deformable barrier. In the side impact, a mobile deformable barrier
impacts the driver's door at 50 km/h. In the pole test, the car tested is
propelled sideways at 29km/h into a rigid pole.

2015 Ford Mondeo Full Review
New chassis for improved refinement.
The first model for Europe to be built on Ford's new global CD segment
platform, the all new Mondeo will debut Ford's new integral link rear
suspension configuration for improved refinement alongside more dynamic
The new suspension design delivers the compliance required for greater
comfort, while retaining lateral stiffness for enhanced steering and
handling. It also allows the wheel to move rearwards on impact with bumps.
This delivers improved impact absorption for a smoother ride and reduced
noise levels. Self levelling rear suspension is offered for the wagon
model, maintaining optimal ride height for comfort and handling regardless
Integral link rear suspension contributes to road noise reductions of
around 3 decibels in the rear and 2 decibels in the front, supported by
additional sound deadening material within the underbody shields, wheel
arch liners and front and rear doors to block tyre noise. The number of
holes within the all new Mondeo body shell also has been reduced to
minimise noise transfer.
Wind noise is reduced to levels previously only experienced in the premium
segment through optimised window pillar and door mirror shape, enhanced
door and window seals, and improved interior noise absorption. A wind noise
level of 21 point 1 sone a metric for loudness is an 8 per cent improvement
over the previous generation Mondeo. The thickness of the rear window glass
is increased by 0 point 4 millimetres, helping reduce passing traffic noise
for rear seat passengers.
More seals have been added between the bonnet and front wings, and the
engine bay sound insulation changed from fibreglass to foam, contributing
to a reduction of between 1 point 5 and 2 decibels for powertrain noise
transmitted to the cabin.
Further fine tuning of handling and ride comfort is delivered with active
systems including Torque Vectoring Control, Pull-Drift Compensation, Active
Nibble Compensation, and Torque Steer Compensation.
The introduction of Electric Power Assisted Steering to Mondeo for the
first time also enables steering weight to adapt and match the comfort,
normal and sport chassis settings of Ford's Continuous Control Damping.
Drivers will notice a greater difference between the chassis
characteristics delivered by the three settings.
We've tuned the all-new Mondeo specifically to meet the needs of European
drivers, said Geert van Noyen, vehicle dynamics manager, Ford of Europe.
We went through five designs just for the rear suspensions bushes with each
taking two months before we were satisfied, and also placed a lot of
emphasis on tuning steering to deliver a smooth and fluid feel.
