Maruti Celerio, Hyundai Eon, Maruti Eeco fail Global NCAP crash test


Anjan Ravi, I'm a true-blooded petrolhead. Hope you enjoy our news stories, launch coverages, motorshow coverages and test drive reports.

Global NCAP has crash tested several units of the Renault Kwid with varying body stiffness, the Mahindra Scorpio, and the Maruti Celerio, Maruti Eeco and the Hyundai Eon. Common to all these cars is a zero star crash test rating.

The Eeco scored zero stars in the adult occupant protection and one star in child occupant protection. The collapse of the structure in the passenger compartment makes the testing agency state that the bodyshell cannot withstand further loads. The Eeco is not offered with airbags or ABS even as optional.

The Hyundai Eon was tested without the optional driver airbag. The protection offered to the driver’s head and chest was poor, while that of the passenger’s chest was marginal. The bodyshell was rated as unstable and is not capable of withstanding any further loadings.

Maruti Celerio:

Global NCAP tested the non-airbag and non-ABS variant of the Maruti Celerio. According to the testing agency, the protection offered to the driver’s head, neck and chest was poor and the passenger’s chest
received marginal protection. Like the Eon, the structure was rated as unstable.

It is to be noted that the Thai-made Suzuki Celerio sold in the European market scored 3/5 in the Euro NCAP crash test.

All cars were crash tested at 64 km/h.
