The duo bagged three stars for adult and child occupant protection in the tests conducted by the Global NCAP

Hyundai Creta and Hyundai i20 have received a 3-star safety rating from Global NCAP. Crash tested under the second round of 2022 #SaferCarsForIndia, the duo bagged three stars for adult and child occupant protection. For the #SaferCarsForIndia project, Global NCAP currently tests frontal crash protection for occupants and not side impact, Electronic Stability Control (ESC) and pedestrian protection. The aforementioned requirements will form part of new Global NCAP assessment protocols from July 2022.

The tested unit of Hyundai Creta was an entry-level variant with dual front airbags and ABS as standard safety features. The Global NCAP found the structure "unstable" while detecting the risk of injury to the lower legs and feet of the driver. In addition, the absence of ISOFIX anchorages and 3 point belts in all seating positions impacted the child occupant protection results. Global NCAP was surprised to see in such a new model the lack of 3 point belts in all seating positions, lack of ESC and no side head impact protection as standard. David Ward, Executive President of the Towards Zero Foundation said, “We have seen steady progress in the safety rating of models tested in India over the last six years. It’s been especially welcome that domestic automakers in India have risen to Global NCAP’s safety challenge."
