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

Euro NCAP | VW Passat | 1997 | Crash test
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.

NHTSA Side Pole Impact
NHTSA - New Car Assessment Program (NCAP) Side Pole Test:
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 tree.
Thumbs up for the crash test dummies!
