The results achieved for the adult occupants revealed the driver and passenger’s head, next, and chest stood protected during the test. Similarly, the smash on the knees of driver and passenger also received complete protection. The same results were achieved for the tests conducted on the tibias of both driver and the passenger. The areas of bodyshell and footwell also stood stable during the test. The car also comes with the safety features like Seatbelt Reminders for driver and passenger. Clearing all these tests successfully made the SUV eligible for 5-star scores in the Global NCAP test.
Speaking about the child occupancy tests, the availability of ISOFIX anchorages offered complete protection to child passengers. Similarly, the Child Restraint System (CRS) was good and didn’t show any type of incompatibility. The lap belt in the rear centre position is enough to enhance the security features for child occupants. With all these features the SUV scored four stars for child safety.
Commenting on the results,  Alejandro Furas, Secretary-General, Global NCAP said, “Mahindra has achieved a major milestone with this top score for adult protection and by becoming the first Indian made and owned brand to offer Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB) as a safety option. Making this life-saving technology available is an important step in encouraging the widespread fitment of crash avoidance technologies. Mahindra is one of the leading manufacturers in India, committed to improving their vehicles in response to Global NCAP’s call to democratize vehicle safety.”
