Under SaferCarsForIndia category Amaze isn't listed in the official website of GNCAP though it is listed in SaferCarsForAfrica category with 4 stars. So, I believe its not right to think that Amaze being sold in Indian market is equally good unless it is tested.

Aspire being sold in India scored 3 star in Global NCAP. One being sold in Latin America scored 4 star which is not a sub 4 meter compact sedan.

Some of the conclusions are quite questionable. How can you conclude the safety rating of one car by the result of another car? Freestyle will not go below 4 stars though I am expecting 5 stars. This is very unprofessional! Cars build in the same platform can varied a lot on safety. Forget about different cars, the same cars manufactured by the same company have different built quality when we compare indian products with European products. This is extremely misleading.

No, it is correct. European quality as per standard,but not like that in India.

Based on price quality may be varied.

As per crash test reports body structure was not stable. Better to buy Honda jazz for safety and space.
