I am looking for a small SUV Kind car in around 5 Lakh and shortlisted Maruti S-Presso. How is Build Quality, Safety and NCAP Crash Test Rating of S-Presso
Admin Accepted Answer

Here are some facts
> ABS with EBD is standard in Maruti S-Presso
> Car available with Driver Side Airbag along with optional Co-Passenger Airbag and Standard co-passenger Airbag in Top End Model
> Available with seat Belt pretension, high speed alert system

Now - S-Presso has emerged as most economical car from Maruti Suzuki based on Hearect Chassis Platform
Earlier this Heartect Chassis Platform was introduced in Wagon R in Jan 2019

Been Wagon R was recently tested in Global NCAP Crash test and car got 2 star safety rating with
> Structure marked unstable if frontal crash test done at 64 Kmph Speed
> Weak Chest Protection and weak footwell area in crash but good head and neck protection
> Poor Child Occupant Safety Rating

If not worse - expect S-Presso build quality not better than Wagon R too.

Having said same - all entry segment cars in Indian Market priced under 5 Lakh whether from Maruti Suzuki, Hyundai, Renault, Datsun perform similar in crash test and all these cars passes in crash test norms for Indian Market which is at present designed to meet upcoming crash test regulation which is at 56 Kmph for frontal test and 50 Kmph for side impact test

Net all Maruti S-Presso NCAP Crash Test rating although not been done as of now, but basis Global NCAP Rating of WagonR, expect it to also perform as 2 Star.

Hope should help !!
