& Mahindra compact SUV, the XUV300 has been awarded the highest 5-Star
Safety Rating by Global NCAP. With this global recognition, the XUV300 becomes
the first Indian vehicle to score the highest points among all 5-Star rated
cars tested so far by Global NCAP.
XUV300 also becomes the first Indian vehicle to score a 4-Star child safety
rating. It is noteworthy that side impact performance is a pre-requisite for a
5-Star safety rating, and the XUV300 side impact performance has been one of
the best among all 5-star rated cars.
Wadhera, President-Automotive, Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd. said, “This is a
proud moment for Mahindra as the 5-Star rating reiterates our unstinted
commitment towards safety. Today’s conscious buyers rate safety as a top
priority while making their purchase decision and we have designed the XUV300
to be one of the safest vehicles in India. I am sure that this recognition will
further spur us as well as the Indian automotive industry to achieve similar
safety standards for the entire range of vehicles on Indian roads”.
Mahindra XUV300 with its many first-in-segment safety features including 7
airbags, disc brakes on all 4 wheels, front parking sensors and heated ORVMs,
offers fortress-like safety that is unmatched. Today the XUV300 has established
a new benchmark in terms of vehicle safety in India having been awarded a
5-star rating by Global NCAP, the umbrella body of consumer car safety testing
bodies. The official Global NCAP test for the Mahindra XUV300 was conducted in
Ward, CEO and President, Global NCAP, said, “Mahindra is the second Indian
manufacturer to achieve Global NCAP’s coveted five star status and the XUV300
scores the highest combined crash test result of all the cars we’ve tested in
India to date. We are delighted with this hugely positive outcome in our
#SaferCarsForIndia campaign. It’s a vitally important win for Indian consumers
and sets a safety challenge that every manufacturer must now be measured
Billingsley, Executive Director, FIA Foundation, said, “In the space of just a
few years Global NCAP’s #SaferCarsForIndia campaign has transformed both the
public conversation and public policy on vehicle safety in India. Indian car
makers are stepping up and taking responsibility for protecting their
customers. This result from Mahindra proves that five star vehicle safety is
possible and affordable, and we now expect all manufacturers to offer Indian consumers
five star protection, as standard.”
XUV300 achieved a solid five stars for adult occupant protection and four stars
for child occupant protection. The XUV300 offers 2 frontal airbags as standard,
and it offers ESC and side impact airbags as optional. Its structure and its
footwell area were rated as stable. Head and neck protection for adult
occupants was good. Chest protection for passenger was good and driver chest
protection was adequate. Femur and knees showed good protection as well. Global
NCAP tested the side impact protection of the XUV300 under UN95 regulation, the
car comfortably passed the requirements when tested on either passenger or
occupant protection showed good protection for the 18 month old dummy with the
CRS installed rearward facing and using the standard ISOFIX anchorages and a
support leg. The 3 year old CRS was installed forward facing using the ISOFIX
anchorages as well as a top tether and offered fair protection to the dummy.
The XUV300 offers the possibility of disconnecting the passenger airbag in case
of the need to use a rearward facing CRS in the passenger seat. The lack of
three point belts in all seating positions, as well as the poor ISOFIX markings
explain the four star rating for child occupant protection.
