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"
