The Top 5 Safest Indian Cars in 2021

India is growing rapidly, and the automotive market in the country is no different.

Several Indian car manufacturers such as Tata, Mahindra, and Maruti are leading the way, creating some of the safest vehicles on roads today. However, safety should not be taken lightly when it comes to Indian roads.

In this blog post, we will highlight the top 5 safest Indian cars in 2021. Let's take a look.

Mahindra XUV300

Global NCAP (New Car Assessment Program) has awarded the XUV300 as the safest car in India, based on a rating of occupant safety in an accident. Global NCAP gave the XUV300 five stars for adult occupants and four stars for child occupants. The XUV300 also won Global NCAP's first-ever award for its excellent safety features.

Tata Nexon

Tata Nexon has created history by becoming the first car made in India to be awarded 5 stars in the Global NCAP crash test. In addition, the Nexon also meets the UN95 side-impact protection requirements.

Tata Altroz

Another feather in the cap for Tata. The Tata Altroz became the second Indian car company to be awarded 5 stars in the Global NCAP crash testing. The company has also been pretty successful in the adult occupant protection department, scoring 16.13 points out of 17 and capturing 29 points out of 49 for child occupant protection.

Mahindra Marazzo

A new made-in-India MPV, the Mahindra Marazzo, performed better than other people carriers. It is better than the Ertiga, Lodgy, and Enjoy, which are now discontinued. India's Mahindra Marazzo, scored 22.22 points out of 49 in Global NCAP's crash tests.

Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza

The Vitara Brezza from Maruti Suzuki has a 4-star rating for adults but only two stars for children. With the 18-month old dummy in the car test, it had injuries to its head and shoulders. The SUV is one of the safest Maruti Suzuki models you can buy in India, but it can pose risks to children.

The new Indian car safety rules have been in the works for over four years to make vehicles safer for occupants. With the recent news of Minister of Road Transport and Highways of India, Nitin Gadkari, asking automakers to offer six airbags in cars compulsorily shows the seriousness of vehicle safety in India.
