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

Crash Testing the 2013 Volvo XC60! - The Downshift Episode 51
We visit Ruckersville, VA and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety's
Vehicle Research Center. IIHS is crash testing the 2013 Volvo XC60 in one
of their newest tests - the small overlap front test. On this episode of
The Downshift, learn why this kind of front overlap impact has such a
reputation for killing cars and their passengers, and find out if the Volvo
XC60 passes the test.
The Downshift appears every other Tuesday on the new Motor Trend channel.

2014 Honda City 1.5V Start-Up and Full Vehicle Tour
Hello everyone! This is a long awaited video as a lot of you have been
requesting for a 2014 City. Well, now I am able to upload one for you all,
so do enjoy!
The variant that I have in the video happens to be the top of the line
1.5V, so it does have a few bells and whistles that the other variants do
not have, such as the Touch Panel climate control, 7" Display Audio head
unit, front fog lights, 16" alloys and 6 airbags.
Ford F150 and Honda Civic frontal crash test by IIHS
When large, truck-based SUVs collide with passenger cars or minivans, the
results can be devastating for the occupants of the latter.
But fatalities in such accidents are on the decrease in the United States
thanks to measures employed by automakers. Traffic deaths are down 64
percent since the year 2000 due to changes in automobile design such as
lower bumpers for SUVs and better-protect cabin cells for passenger cars.
In 2000, the death rate for car and minivan passengers in collisions with
trucks or SUVs was 44 deaths per million. That came down to 16 deaths per
million by 2009.
The study was conducted by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, a
private-sector group based in Arlington, Virginia.
"By working together, the automakers got life-saving changes done quickly,"
said Joe Nolan, the institute's chief administrative officer.
► 2012 Honda Civic CRASH TEST
Honda's commitment to safety is embodied by the term 'Safety for Everyone'
which means safety for drivers, passengers, pedestrians and all road users.
This was at the forefront of the minds of the designers of the new Civic,
unveiled in September. One of the ways that this is achieved in the new
Civic is through the Advanced Compatibility Engineering (ACE) body
structure, a front-mounted polygonal frame that is designed to prevent the
cabin becoming deformed by distributing forces away from the passenger
compartment. The new Civic also provides sophisticated pedestrian
protection features, including windscreen wiper pivots designed to break
away on impact and energy absorbing front wing mounts. The new Civic,
developed specifically for the European market, will be offered exclusively
as a five-door hatchback and will compete in the C-segment. It will reach
European showrooms in early 2012.
