India-spec Hyundai Grand i10 Nios is part of three cars that have been tested by Global NCAP this month.


The Hyundai Grand i10 Nios is part of the latest set of made in India cars and SUVs that have been tested by Global NCAP (New car Assessment Program).  Here's how it fared.

  • Grand i10 Nios received a two-star overall rating  
  • The hatchback's structure and footwell area are unstable, according to Global NCAP
  • The model also received "poor" rating for child protection.

Hyundai Grand i10 Nios NCAP crash test rating explained

The Hyundai Grand i10 Nios, as mentioned above, achieved a two-star rating for adult as well as child protection.  The hatchback comes with standard dual front airbags as well as seat-belt pretensioners for both front occupants.  

According to Global NCAP, the Grand i10 Nios's structure and footwell area was rated unstable while the head and neck protection for adult occupants was rated as good.   As far as chest protection goes, the driver received a "weak" rating while the front passenger secured an "adequate" rating.

The Nios also showed poor results for child occupant protection, according to Global NCAP.  Hyundai does not have a recommended child restraint system and this is part of the reason why the Santro had a poor showing in this area. The tests showed poor protection for a three-year-old while an 18-month occupant had better protection. The hatchback does not come with standard ISOFIX child-seat anchors nor has three-point seat belts for all passengers.  The Grand i10 Nios, however, complies with the Indian crash test regulations. 

Along with the Grand i10 Nios, Global NCAP also conducted crash tests on the Maruti Suzuki S-Presso and the Kia Seltos in the current round of testing.  Additionally, models like the Tata Nexon, Tata Altroz and Mahindra XUV300, Tata Tiago and Tigor were tested by Global NCAP earlier this year.
