In the side impact test, the SUV scored 16 out of 17. GNCAP reported that the Mahindra SUV had received an ‘Ok’ rating for the side pole impact tests.

Speaking about the test result, Alejandro Furas, Secretary General of Global NCAP, congratulated Mahindra on achieving the five-star rating for the SUV. “Global NCAP congratulates Mahindra on its continuing commitment to safety, achieving five stars for adult occupant protection under our new, more demanding crash test protocols," he said. David Ward, Executive President of the Towards Zero Foundation, said that Mahindra demonstrated its commitment to improving vehicle safety performance. “Indian manufacturers such as Mahindra have clearly demonstrated their ongoing commitment to improving vehicle safety performance. This is very welcome, and we look forward to this promising momentum being maintained when Bharat NCAP is launched next year," he said.

Under the new Global NCAP safety protocols, a vehicle is only eligible to score a five-star safety rating if it secures the required scores while also conforming to the ESC, pedestrian protection, pole side impact and seat belt reminder requirements of GNCAP.
