    Introduced by the government last year, the Bharat New Car Assessment Programme (BNCAP) has taken over from the Global NCAP for conducting crash tests and awarding a score to cars sold in the country to help buyers make an informed purchase decision. Since its inception on October 1, 2023, BNCAP has tested four vehicles, primarily SUVs. Below are the results of these tests, detailing how each SUV performed in crash simulations.
