Global NCAP has given the Maruti Suzuki S-Presso, Swift, and Ignis a one-star safety rating.

Maruti Swift

The Swift received a score of 19.19 for adult occupant safety and 16.68 for child occupant protection.

Front Impact

The car provided adequate protection for the driver's and passenger's head and neck. The driver's chest provided inadequate protection, while the passenger's chest provided acceptable protection. The driver's and passenger's right knees had minimal protection because they could collide with harmful structures behind the fascia, whereas the passenger's left knee had strong protection. The tibias of the driver were adequately protected, whereas the tibias of the passengers were well protected.

Side Impact

In the side impact test, protection for the head, abdomen, and pelvis was evaluated as acceptable, but protection for the chest was rated as poor.

The side pole impact test was omitted since the vehicle lacks side head protection.

Child Protection

The car provided acceptable head protection and minimal chest protection to the 3-year-old child dummy, but inadequate protection to the 18-month-old dummy.

Maruti S-Presso

The S-Presso received a score of 20.03 for adult occupant protection and only 3.52 for child occupant safety.

Side Impact

The side pole impact test was not carried out since the vehicle lacked side head protection.
