During the assessment it showed an unstable structure and footwell area, good child occupant protection thanks to the ISOFIX anchorages and the rearward facing position of one of the child dummies. This model is offered with a lap-belt in the rear centre seat, without ESC and side head impact protection as standard.

Alejandro Furas, Secretary General at the Global NCAP, said, "There has been significant progress on vehicle safety design since we began our tests in 2014 but, as we see from our latest results, there is still more to be done to achieve the high safety standards that consumers in India rightly demand."

David Ward, President of the Towards Zero Foundation, said, “As we pass the Safer Cars for India fiftieth test milestone, it’s important to recognise the progress that has been made."
