Safety ratings for Honda City, Honda Jazz, Nissan Magnite, and Renault Kiger
Car safety tests aren’t yet a norm for the nation, but better late than never. In recent years, at least car safety ratings have been associated with India, and as of today, 4 more cars join the slowly growing list. Honda City (4th gen) finally has a test result, and it’s a strong 4 stars for adult occupation, and child occupant protection.
A result that is not in the least bit surprising considering Honda City’s popular appeal that has grown from decade to decade. The test takes into count 2 airbags, something which has been mandated as a requirement in Indian cars in recent years. Bodyshell integrity is listed as unstable when tested at 64 km/h. Crash test weight is listed at 1,260 kgs. SBR is a standard offering for passenger and driver.
