To Make it Simple - if you care for Yourself or Family - Importantly follow the Mantra as given along with these basic Standard Safety Features

» ABS, EBD : ABS - Anti Lock Braking System is what an advancement over conventional braking system by preventing skids of vehicle, let the vehicle control remain intact Decreases Stopping Distance on Wet / Slippery Road Surface

» Atleast Dual Front Airbags : Post catastrophe safety feature and considered in difference in preventing passenger from fatality - in event of frontal crash. No Utility though in Side Crash or Rear Crash

» Collapsible Steering, Side Impact Door Beam: Earlier, used to be marked a feature Though are now turning to be Standard across 

ideally should be Standard in every car - but unfortunately over 90% of Hatchback Cars still Sold in Indian market do misses these features as Standard .

Safest Hatch with Highest Safety Features Price * Comments
Ford Freestyle Titanium Plus (Although Ford calls it CUV, but is essentially Figo Cross and basis handling put in Hatch)  7.28 Lakh (Petrol) / 8.08 Lakh (Diesel) With Car with 6 Airbags (Front, Side and Curtain Airbags) along with ESP, Active Rollover Protection, ABS with EBD, Speed Lock System makes Ford Freestyle as most advanced in Safety Features List in Sub 10 Lakh Price Segment in India

VW Polo GT TSI Automatic 9.39 Lakh Though this hatch has Dual Front Airbags, but it also has ABS, EBD with Electronic Stability Control. Also comes loaded with Hill Hold Drive Function, Fog Lights in front & Rear, Parking Sensor with Rear View Camera. Also - its the most powerful Petrol & Diesel hatch in India to offer unmatched driving comfort

 

 

Which Cars to buy for Safety

If you care less for Build Quality or is relative strict on Budget - then may consider these choices having atleast:-

» ABS with EBD, Dual Front Airbags

» Minimum 14 Inch Wheels for Stability on High Speed Drive

» Collapsible Steering and Side Impact Door Beam

» Has Defogger as useful function in Winter, Reverse Parking Sensor as useful safety while reversing the car

Also Ensure that Seat Belt should be worn by both Driver and Co-Passenger and children should only be allowed to sit on Rear Seat. Last but not the least - Safety is dependent on Speed. If you drive on Insane speed of 140+ on Indian roads then its what inviting risk.

No car in world can sustain crash at speed of over 100 Kmph. Important to note that Global NCAP perform Crash test at speed of 64 Kmph and had the crash test would have had performed at speed of 80 Kmph - the cars which are coming with 5 Star Safety in 64 Kmph will just fall back to 1 Star or 2 Star.

Remember the Mantra on Indian Roads - Buy a Car which comes with ABS, EBD, Dual Airbags and Safe Drive to Stay Alive !!

Such a lovely article which, like many others, compare cars' top models with 6 airbags to the cars with zero airbags, and show that only xyz car/ cars are safe. For example, the article mentions Figo Titanium Plus and i20 Astar both with 6 airbags and say that these are safe. Then the article mentions cars like Alto, Nano, Eon with no airbag and informs that its having Zero rating. Is it a fair comparison to give the right picture.
And interestingly, the same article mentions "Safest Petrol Hatch in Under 5.5 Lakh (Ex-showroom)" and lists almost every possible car on offer excluding only entry level cars. If safst car was to be mentioned in this list 3-4 cars at the max should have been mentioned with decreasing or increasing order of safety.
Sorry to say but its "What a waste of time"

I think celerio option models are safe against cars which do not Come with abs and dual airbags
Also a car is safe if driven in controlled speed of 80 kmph with seat belts onas learned from Mycarhelpline. Any car at high speed of 120 is unsafe even with 6 or 8 airbags
