28 January 2021

Global NCAP has launched a new #SaferCarsForAfrica crash test result in partnership with AA South Africa and with the welcome support of the FIA Foundation and Bloomberg Philanthropies.

In a milestone moment for vehicle safety, the India manufactured Mahindra XUV300 becomes Global NCAP’s first five star car in Africa.

The XUV300 achieved a five star rating for the Indian market in 2020. Global NCAP’s Indian and African programmes share the same assessment protocols and following a production compliance review, the rating has been confirmed for the model’s roll out in Africa.
