20 Cars with Strongest Body Structures, Best Build in 2024 as Safest Cars of India

20 Cars with Strongest Body Structures, Best Build in 2024 as Safest Cars of India

Cars with Strongest Body Structure in India. Top 20 Safest Cars in terms of Best Build Quality in 2024 and should be on Radar for those looking for Solid Build and Chassis Frames

 

Top 20 Cars with Best Build Quality from Safety Aspect in 2024

If you looking for a car which is safe, is important to go with a car which comes with

1. Safety features - Come with ABS, EBD, Not only Dual Front but Side and Curtain Airbags to protect in even of Side Impact along with Good Braking, Wider Tyres for Better Grip on Road

2. Strong Sturdy Build - How well is the car body shell designed in terms of high tensile steel to absorb the impact. Look out for NCAP Rating if available.

3. Driving Behavior - Speed thrills and Kills. However safe the car is with high tensile steel and safety features, Any accident due to over speed of 100 Kmph can end up been fatal irrespective the Car been World class in 5 Star Build Quality and / or with 7 Airbags or 9 Airbags.

Important to follow speed limit as Bare Basic Sacrosanct:-

 

Which Cars Can Protect During Crash

There are 2 Kinds of Safety:-

  • Active Safety: Which helps to Prevent Accident. Essentially - ABS, EBD, ESP, Traction Control are generally considered Active Safety Measure to Control Car Movement, Handling and Stability. Also Sensor like Tyre Pressure Monitoring System provide accurate tyre pressure and are essential before taking car on long distance.
  • Passive Safety: But in an unlikely event of Accident - Safety Belts (essentially as what Car Owner call Seat Belt), Airbags, Adjustable Head Restraints, Build Quality are important to decide the Fate

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. '

Despite of Airbags, Sheet Metal Quality is what which can end up making a Car 1 Star or 5 Star in event of a Road Accident

Use of High Strength Steel with More Layers Including Stiffer Structure, Frame Design, equipped with Good Layers of Door Side Beam Protection makes the Car Stronger and thats what is required to done from Car Manufacturer to offer Safety,

However - in a Rat Race of Selling More Cars, Car Manufacturers 

  • Makes a Trade off to Build Stronger Cars to keep Pricing under Control
  • Foresee Impact of Kerb Weight on Car Mileage
  • Foresee Impact of Kerb Weight on Car Pickup

and yes passes on Indian Safety Norms which is set at 48 Kmph Frontal Barrier Crash test till 2019.

The same Safety Norms, thankfully is Increased to 48 kmph in Side Impact and 56 kmph in Frontal Impact.

 

Cars with Strongest Body Structures known for Best Build Quality (Updated in 2024)

Disclaimer: Before Buying a Strong Sturdy Car - do remember Basic that you are buying a Car and Not Tank. High Speed Limit or Over-speeding can end up been Fatal irrespective of how well Build the car is.

While Cars which cost 20 Lakh+ are generally Sold with the same International Level Quality, Safety and 5 Star Build Safety. So - no doubts on Cars like Ford Endeavour, Toyota Fortuner, Skoda Superb, MG Gloster, Zs EV, Skoda Karoq or other cars in segment as they are just the best in Build Quality Perspective.

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.

Hi Gagan,

How do you rate Hyundai Xcent on safety? The model I am speaking of is SX which has driver and passenger air bags with ABS. But want to know your rating on build quality. Whether has same strength like VW Polo?

Dear Gagan,
Thanks 4 the information. Among dZire, Amaze, Zest, Aspire which will be of better build quality? I mean Strength wise.
I am asking this with a thought of something more than a hatch.

Dear Mr Gagan, currently I stay in Oman and planning to relocate back to my native Hyderabad. I was driving Fiesta and Logan before coming here. Now, I plan to purchase AMAZE. But, worried about its body quality (I read it is of aluminum and very light like a tin box). Please suggest me a safe and compact sedan which suits well in our Hyderabad traffic. We long-drive frequently to TN & KTK. regards.

Hello Gagan,

thanks for the reply. As we know, Ford Figo passed at 56km/hr without airbags while Polo (w/o airbags) didn't. So Figo with airbags is as good as Polo with airbags? Can I have your views please.

@ Prasad,

While Structural Integrity of Figo n Polo remained stable in 64 km/hr speed - but it was Airbags which caused a lot of change in safety ratings
VW Polo comes with Dual Airbags as standard and the present model on sale in India - is considered to be 4 Star rated - which is almost the best in relative to other hatch cars on sale in India. However - its expected that all new version of Figo in 2015 - based on Ka hatch will have complete revamped body design, structure, mechanical - to retain almost the same standard and benchmark of its international model with 4 star ratings in crash test as performed.

@Prasad,

Tata Zest - Primarily for the X1 Platform which speaks largely about the build quality, The Build Quality is Definitely a Step up Heavy Steel Bracing in Boot
Honda City - All Honda Cars have 5 Star Euro NCAP Rating since 2009 - City Does not seems an exception in Honda Car Portfolio (Jazz to Accord). Amaze not included due to thin seats and Adjustable Headrests in Front seats - the build though is good.

Above - we tried to cover cars which start under price range of 10 Lakh by stating Mid Range Utility vehicles - though Innova was erroneously been placed in it
Cars in Segment of Altis, Jetta, Octavia, Cruze or SUVs have Structure carrying more layers of High Intensity Steel, and are build for International market with, in most likely scenario has relatively strong beam with better Build - thus if you considering buying a car in this segment or above - you are in most likely scenario buying a car with better build quality.

Thanks for the article,

I am surprised that the TATA Zest and HONDA City is included. Can I know the reasons for XUV500, TATA ARIA, TOYOTA COROLLA, SKODA cars (if yes for VW, then yes for SKODA?) not being included. I have checked their construction of chassis, AHSS/ HSS used... but not actually clear.
