Top 5 safest cars in India 2023
In the Indian auto industry, mileage frequently takes precedence over most other deciding elements.
However, there has been a noticeable trend in favor of safety among both consumers and automakers.
The Indian government has actively emphasized auto safety since 2019 by mandating airbags and ABS
on all vehicles. In order to make Indian roads safer, the government has also made it plain that it plans
to implement further safety measures in 2023. Automakers have also been fast to adapt; they are now
producing vehicles that meet global safety requirements. The safest vehicles in India are listed below
along with their corresponding Global NCAP safety ratings
The stunning Volkswagen Virtus now holds the top rank on the list of safest automobiles, demonstrating that beauty at its best is also the safest. The Volkswagen Virtus is the first midsize sedan to receive a 5-star certification under GNCAP’s revised testing procedures, receiving a 5-star rating from the organization for both adult and child safety. The majority of this German sedan’s safety features, including as twin airbags, ABS with EBD, multi-collision braking, electronic differential lock, tyre pressure monitor, rear parking sensors, and rear defoggers, are also included as standard equipment. The most advanced models include hill start assistance and up to 6 airbags.
The Skoda Slavia was evaluated by the GNCAP with the Volkswagen Virtus and received the same ratings and results as predicted. Because of the Slavia’s durability and 5-star GNCAP certification for adult and kid occupancy, it is an extraordinarily safe vehicle to drive. Many standard safety equipment, including twin airbags, ABS with EBD, ESC with traction control, multi-collision braking, rear parking sensors, and tyre pressure monitors, add an additional layer of protection. Like Virtus, Slavia’s higher-end models also come with up to 6 airbags and hill start assistance.
The Volkswagen Taigun successfully defended its place on the list of safest vehicles by excelling in the bodyshell, which is perhaps the most crucial layer of protection. Both for adult and kid safety, the Volkswagen Taigun received 5-star ratings. The German mid-size SUV, which is based on the MQB A0-IN platform, is the first vehicle to be assessed using Global NCAP’s updated methods, which also subject the vehicle to extra side impact tests. With a host of safety features including up to 6 airbags, ESC, traction control, TPMS, and a rear camera, among others, the Volkswagen Taigun raises the bar on safety even further in addition to earning a 5-star G-NCAP certification. The Taigun 1.5 liter turbo petrol engine also has cylinder deactivation technology, which reduces the carbon impact.
The Skoda Kushaq shares a platform with the Taigun, earning the same 5-star safety certification for both adult and child occupants. The Skoda Kushaq is built on the MQB A0-IN platform, just like the Volkswagen Taigun, but it has a more muscular appearance that emits a more manly appeal. The German Creta competitor Kushaq emphasizes safety even more with a bevy of safety equipment including up to 6 airbags, ABS with EBD, multi-collision braking, electronic differential lock, and others, while the 5-star G-NCAP certification underlines the Kushaq’s structural robustness. Additionally, the Skoda Kushaq’s 1.5 liter turbocharged petrol engine features cylinder deactivation technology, which lowers emissions and improves economy.
