Indian Cars Receive Zero-Star Crash Safety Rating

Ever wanted to go to India, take in the sights and sounds down there? Avoid the cars at all costs! Everybody knows the traffic is complete mayhem, but today we've going to tell you why the cars are deathtraps as well.

The first-ever independent crash tests of some of India’s most popular cars was conducted by Global NCAP and the results were absolutely shocking. All of the cars selected received a zero-star rating after failing the frontal crash tests at 64 km/h quite miserably.

Two version of the Polo were tested, one with two airbags which got 4 stars and one totally without airbags which received zero stars. This just goes to show why Europe or America isn't ready to buy these airbag-less killing machines and why the Tata Nano never made it into Europe. Also, the safety cells and basically nonexistent and cabin deformation is in some cases right to where the front seats star. None of these cars would ever withstand the more sever rollover or small overlap tests conducted in Europe and America.
