Five Star Cars for India

1 January 2020

The Mahindra XUV300 has achieved the highest combined result in Global NCAP’s #SaferCarsForIndia crash tests to date with the highest score in both the adult and child protection categories. The XUV300 has also shown the lowest level of intrusion and best side impact crashworthiness performance of any model tested so far.

Commenting on this achievement, David Ward, CEO and President, Global NCAP, said: “Mahindra is the second Indian manufacturer to achieve Global NCAP’s coveted five star status and the XUV300 scores the highest combined crash test result of all the cars we’ve tested in India to date. We are delighted with this hugely positive outcome in our #SaferCarsForIndia campaign. It’s a vitally important win for Indian consumers and sets a safety challenge that every manufacturer must now be measured against.”

Saul Billingsley, Executive Director, FIA Foundation, said: “In the space of just a few years Global NCAP’s #SaferCarsForIndia campaign has transformed both the public conversation and public policy on vehicle safety in India. Indian car makers are stepping up and taking responsibility for protecting their customers. This result from Mahindra proves that five star vehicle safety is possible and affordable, and we now expect all manufacturers to offer Indian consumers five star protection, as standard.”
