Global NCAP Crash Test: Honda Amaze Bags 4-Stars, Maruti Swift failed to meet protection criteria in 2018

Global NCAP has examined three vehicles sold in African zones below its #SafeCarsForAfrica drive, comprising the Honda Amaze.


The Africa-bound Amaze is fabricated in the Indian zone and attained a 4 star ranking in crash tests carried out by the Global NCAP.


Global NCAP has crash-tested the said vehicle and made use of the base model available in African zones.



The passive security features Honda provides on this model comprise double front airbags and seatbelt pretensioners on the front side.


Active protection traits comprise antilock braking system and a user seatbelt aide memoire. It is also equipped with ISOFIX tips to get on a kid seat. These traits are provided as customary in all editions of the Amaze sold all over the country in addition.



The vehicle got crash screened as part of worldwide NCAP’s securer vehicles for Africa drive. The Africa-spec vehicle got crashed into a roadblock at a pace of 64 kilometer per hour with a 40% balance.


The structure of the vehicle got ranked as stable plus the foot well region.


The experiment carried out by Global NCAP was the ‘Front Offset Deformable Barrier Test’. A related trial has also been carried out for a number of India-spec vehicles under a related #SaferCarsForIndia operation.



Global NCAP has stated that the body casing of the vehicle stayed stable after the collision and was able to survive further impacts too. In addition, the footwell region is also measured stable.


While talking about the Amaze’s contenders, the India-spec Swift got examined during late last year and got a depressing 2-star rating for adult and kid protection each. Its body casing was also marked as unbalanced. The body covering of the car that is just a Swift with a boot, could also become unbalanced unlike the Amaze, if examined.


The second age bracket of the Amaze got rolled out in India in 2018 and since then, it has been a top seller car for the well known firm.


Honda has already sold 85,000 vehicle units of the 2nd gen vehicle since its introduction in the nation.
