Global NCAP releases an update to its #SaferCarsForIndia campaign with two new crash test results yesterday. The Mahindra Marazzo scores the four star rating in global NCAP. It’s the fifth made-in-India car and first MPV to secure four star rating in crash test. The Mahindra Marazzo with standard double airbags, ABS, SBR for driver and ISOFIX anchorages, reached four stars in Adult Occupant Protection and two stars for Child Occupant Protection.
The protection offered to the driver and passenger’s head and neck was good. Driver’s chest showed marginal protection while passenger’s chest showed adequate protection. Driver and passenger’s knees showed good protection The bodyshell was rated as stable and it was capable of withstanding further loadings. The car offers standard SBR (seatbelt reminder) for driver and standard ABS. The car offers SBR for the passenger but it does not meet Global NCAP requirements.
The child seat for the 3 year old was installed forward facing with ISOFIX and top tether and was not able to prevent excessive forward movement during the impact leaving the head vulnerable while fair protection was offered to the chest. The 18 month old CRS (child restraint system) was installed with ISOFIX and leg support rearward facing and it showed good protection for head and chest.The recommended CRS did not show incompatibility. The vehicle offers standard ISOFIX and top tether anchorages in the 2 outboard rear seats and offers 3 point belts in all seating positions. Passenger airbag disconnection is possible.
This result is valid for all Marazzo units produced as from November 16th, 2018.
