India bound third gen Suzuki Swift scores three stars on Euro NCAP

The India-bound third generation Suzuki Swift has scored three stars in the latest round of Euro NCAP safety tests. The car that was tested was a RHD spec 1.2-litre petrol unit fitted with standard safety equipment found in the car. This list comprises nine airbags, seat belt pre-tensioners and seat belt load limiters. It has achieved its highest score of 83 per cent in adult occupant safety while the lowest rating of 25 per cent has come in safety assistance.

The car that was tested was a 1.2-litre petrol model in RHD configuration and will be the one that will come to India.
However, Euro NCAP has also tested a Swift with a safety pack whose main feature is radar brake support. This car achieved a higher score of 88 per cent in adult occupant safety as well as in safety assist where it got a score of 44 per cent. This car too was a RHD spec 1.2-litre petrol engined model.


Maruti Suzuki has already standardised dual front airbags across most of its models for the Indian market and the new Swift is expected to join the list. However, if they do introduce the option of nine airbags, then it will be an excellent thing for the Indian market. After all, it usually is Maruti Suzuki, by virtue of being the biggest in India, which sets a trend that other manufacturers tend to follow. The ratings for the standard car should come as no surprise given that Baleno achieved exactly the same rating.
