Average performance by the 2017 Suzuki Swift in Euro NCAP’s crash tests.
Euro NCAP has released the crash test results of the 2017 Suzuki Swift. The new generation Swift has received a 3-star rating in its basic variant equipped with standard safety features.
Euro NCAP crash tested the 2017 Suzuki Swift in two different specifications, one equipped with standard safety features and the other equipped with optional safety features. The standard 2017 Suzuki Swift tested was equipped with front airbag (driver & passenger), side head airbag (driver, passenger and rear), side chest airbag (driver & passenger), side pelvis airbag (driver & passenger), ISOFIX and seat belt reminder (front and rear). It scored 83% in adult occupant protection, 75% in child occupant protection, 69% in pedestrian protection and 25% in safety assist, and an overall 3-star safety rating.
The 2017 Suzuki Swift equipped with Radar Brake Support was awarded 4-star safety rating in Euro NCAP’s crash tests. In addition to the standard safety equipment, this model had Autonomous Emergency Braking (City & Inter-Urban) system, and scored 88% in adult occupant protection, 75% in child occupant protection, 69% in pedestrian protection and 44% in safety assist.
The 2017 Maruti Swift that is reported to be entering production in India this October will offer comparatively lesser safety. Like the 2017 Maruti Dzire, it may have ABS with EBD and BA, dual-front airbags and ISOFIX child seat anchorages as standard, but it’s unlikely to get six airbags, adaptive cruise control and other advanced safety features in the European markets, Australia and Japan.
