Kwid scores 2 stars in crash test which is still safer then that are in India
Are Indian vechiles safe?
The Global NCAP revealed his test report of the Renault Kwid that is sold in the African market. The organization was aiming to create a safer vehicles campaign under #SaferCarsForAfirca. In crash-test Renaults Kwid got 2-star overall in safety. Renault sends the South Africa-spec model to Global NCAP as part of the safety car test for the initiative.
In 2016, Global NCAP tested the Kwid model when launched in a crash test in which it scores a 1-star rating since the Kwid has definitely improved its safety features with strong upliftment over the previous model.
GNCAP appreciated the Renaults for improving the quality of the safety in Kwid. Kwid scored 7.78 points out of 17. Whereas Kia Seltos scored 8.02 which is very closed.
Safer Protection by Kwid
This Kwid model offers 2 airbags as standard, and drivers head protection offered by the model was rated good and requisite for the passengers. Weaken part was the driver's chest, and the neck shows good protection through gears.
The major defect was in child occupant protection which shows poor performance, and a lack of 3-point belts in all seating positions.
An Unstable body structure, unstable pedal movement, lack of ISOFIX anchorage, and unstable footwell shows the two stars.
Earlier this year, four Indian car underwent a crash test by Global NCAP.
Newly- launched Mahindra Thar SUV which passed the test with 4-star rating for both adult and child occupants. Thar offers double airbags as standards.
Hyundai Grand i10 NIOS
Kia Seltos SUV
Maruti Suzuki Spresso even failed to pocket any stars in the Global NCAP test.
Incidentally, the South African Model done comparatively better than the Indian spec model.
The Similarity in both cases of Kwid and S-Presso raises questions bout the safety standards of the car available in India.
