Mahindra XUIV700 achieved five stars for adult occupants and four stars for child occupants in Global NCAP’s latest #SaferCarsForIndia crash tests. The recently launched Mahindra XUV700 was tested in the most basic safety specification, fitted with two airbags, ABS brakes, and ISOFIX anchorages. The Mahindra XUV700 could be improved by making standard optional equipment such as side-body airbags, side head curtain airbags, Electronic Stability Control (ESC), and three-point belts in all seating positions. The Mahindra XUV700 was tested in compliance with the requirements of Global NCAP’s voluntary test procedure.

Mahindra XUV700 Alejandro Furas, Secretary-General, Global NCAP said, “Mahindra has achieved a major milestone with this top score for adult protection and by becoming the first Indian made and owned brand to offer Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB) as a safety option. Making this life-saving technology available is an important step in encouraging the widespread fitment of crash avoidance technologies. Mahindra is one of the leading manufacturers in India, committed to improving their vehicles in response to Global NCAP’s call to democratize vehicle safety.”

The protection offered to the driver and passenger’s head, neck, and chest was good. The driver and passenger’s knees showed good protection. Driver tibias showed adequate protection and passenger tibias showed adequate and good protection. The bodyshell and footwell area were rated as stable and they were capable of withstanding further loadings. The car offers standard Seatbelt Reminders (SBR) for driver and passenger. The UN95 test showed that the car could pass the requirements. All of the above explained the five stars for adult occupant protection.

The child seat for the 3-year-old and 1.5-year-old was installed rearward facing with ISOFIX anchorages and support leg. Both were able to prevent head exposure during the impact. Child Restraint System (CRS) marking was OK. The recommended CRSs did not show incompatibility. The vehicle offers a lap belt in the rear centre position. All of the above explained the four stars for child occupant protection.
