The Made-In-India Africa-spec Honda Amaze has been warded a four-star crash test rating from the Global New Care Assessment Programme. The Global NCAP tested three different car models as part of it's 'Safer Cars for Africa' campaign. The made in India Suzuki Ignis was awarded three stars, and the Toyota Avanza was awarded a four stars.
Keeping in mind Global NCAP standards, that the cars were crashed into a de-formable barrier with a 40 percent offset, at a speed of 64 kilometers per hour. Authorities in India conduct the same test for crash certification, however the impact speed is a set at 56 kilometers per hour.
The Honda Amaze was rated four stars for adult occupant protection, and the vehicle structure and the foot well area was rated as stable. The Honda Amaze that was used for the tests was a base variant and featured dual airbags, front seat belt pre-tensioners, and a driver's sided seat belt reminder as standard.
The India-spec Amaze features a speed warning system and seat belt reminders for both the front occupants. These requirements are mandatory according to India's latest safety norms.
Surprisingly, the Africa spec Honda Amaze was rated one star for child occupant protection. The tests were conducted with Honda-recommended child seats. The Global NCAP team found evidence of head exposure, and probability of injury. The test dummies represented an 18-month old infant, and a three-year old child.
Global NCAP uses the same protocol for its Safer Cars for India and Safer Cars for Africa campaigns, so we can safely say that the Amaze's result is close enough representation for the India model as well. The second-gen Amaze went on sale in India in 2018 and complies with India's latest crash test norms.
Thoughts About The Safety Rating Given To The Africa Spec Honda Amaze
We're surprised that Honda was awarded a single star towards child safety. We're unsure about Africa, but children are an important factor when an Indian family buys a car. All manufacturers are striving to offer better safety features. We wonder what happened to the Japanese giant.
