Cars with Strongest Body Structures, Frames as Safe Cars of India

Cars with Strongest Body Structures, Frames as Safe Cars of India

Know Cars with Strongest Body Structure in India. Cars which are Safe and should be on Radar for those looking for Solid Build Quality and Chassis Frames in 2015 India

 

Which Cars are Safer

If you looking for a car which has Strong Body Design yet comes with Safety features then what matters is :-

a) Size of Vehicle - determining how close the driver position is to the front of the car

b) Weight and Build of the Vehicle - whether the body can absorb the impact of the Force

As per IIHS (Insurance Institute for Highway and Safety) - Death Percentage in case of Smaller and Compact Cars is Twice than that of Bigger Sedans and Vehicles

 

Which Cars Can Protect During Crash

While ABS, EBD and ESP are generally considered Pre Safety Measure to Control Car Movement, Handling and Stability. But for Post Crash Purpose - Safety Belts, Airbags, Adjustable Head Restraints etc are important to Provide Safety as Post Crash Measure.

But What is Most Important is - Build and Design. Though Having Side Door Beams and Front Crumple Zones Reduces the Energy Impact, but without a Strong Body Structure - all in Vain. Car you Owning has Strong Shock Absorbing body Structure to Absorb the Energy Force Generated due to Crash.

For Practical Usage - Use of Higher Strength Steel with More Layers Including Stiffer Structure and Frame Design, equipped with Good Layers of Door Side Beam Protection makes the Car Stronger and thats what is required to done from Car Maker

However an Aberration to it - Speed too Matters. Driving on Insane Speeds of 140 to 160 Km/hr on Indian Roads and Banking on the Car despite having Airbags, Rollover Protection System, Strong Crumple Zone, High Galvanised Steel Body Structure is not going to help you much either

After All Its a Car and Not Tank you are Sitting In

Can we consider Baleno safer or not. It got 3 star in NCAP test. Maruti claims that they used New generation carbon and alloyed high tensile steel which made car lighter but improved resistance to crash and performance.

No matter of good body structure when you have airbags......may you read the full report, baleno got only 3 star with side curtain airbag.... It was not of Indian one. (Definitely they look after safety but more concern is necessary)... As, maruti gives good structure, say sx4, vitara & Scross.
Want a good chassis and safety, choose Fiat, Tata, Toyota, Honda, and many more, with airbags.....
Baleno has got two airbags.. And That's all.... Not to drive at too high speed 110+. Fasten your belt....

Hi For Hatchback Fiat Punto evo is rated in the top for its built quality & NCAP safety. It has dual airbags but along with that it gets duel level airbag for for driver. Similarly i20 & Polo. So these three are the best cars in its segment. And If I talk about the kerb weight then for the Top variants
i20 -1220kg
Punto 1200kg
Polo-1160kg

Where as
Honda City 1160kg
Sx4 1220kg
Baleno 960kg
Verna 1220kg

So simply as all these cars are made of high tensile steel body. So my suggestion would be choose the car which has better kerb weight in Hatch. As just imagine on Punto & i20 you get the same heavy body as sedan below 12-13L range. And you will get Hydrolic steering in Punto only. Actually electronic is a advanced tech but Fiat's this hydro steering is newly developed and its feels best on the road that none of the car has. I get the same feeling with Cruz & New corolla. I have a punto as well. But as Gagan said over all you will get bets tech material on Polo but why to pay 2 lakhs more. Honestly if u think to have fun in driving go for Punto Evo. Its the only car to have a four component independent suspension. Also Zest has it.
