Hello,

Will suggest to go through Details on Safety Crash Test Ratings of both Maruti Baleno and Honda Jazz

Maruti Baleno Crash Test - 3 Star Rating
As per Euro NCAP, 3 star rating means "average to good occupant protection but lacking crash avoidance technology". As per Crash Test report, the passenger compartment of Baleno remained stable in the frontal offset test. Dummy readings indicated good protection of the knees and femurs of both the driver and passenger, it noted.

"In the full-width rigid barrier impact, protection of the driver was rated as good except for the chest, protection of which was adequate," it added.

In the side barrier test, dummy numbers showed good protection but the score for the head was penalised as the side curtain airbag was deemed not to have deployed in the correct manner in the side pole test, Euro NCAP said.

"In the more severe side pole impact, dummy readings of lateral rib compression indicated weak chest protection and the head protection was downgraded to adequate as a result of the incorrect airbag deployment," it noted.

The front seats and head restraints demonstrated good protection against whiplash in the event of a rear-end collision. A geometric assessment of the rear seats also indicated good protection.

Honda Jazz Crash Test - 4 Star Rating
As per Euro NCAP - The passenger compartment remained stable in the frontal offset test. Dummy readings indicated good protection of the knees and femurs of both the driver and passenger.

Honda showed that a similar level of protection would be provided to occupants of different sizes and to those sat in different positions. In the full width rigid barrier test, protection of the driver was good, apart from the chest, protection of which was adequate.

Adequate protection was provided to the neck and chest of the rear passenger dummy, and good protection to the head and femurs/pelvis.
The Jazz scored maximum points in the side barrier test, with good protection of all body regions.

Even in the more severe side pole impact, protection was good for all critical parts of the body. The seats and head restraints provided good protection against whiplash in the event of a rear-end collision.

A geometric assessment of the rear seats indicated that good protection would also be provided to occupants of those seats
