Suzuki Swift Euro NCAP

However, this score may not apply to the India-spec model since it does not get ADAS.

The Suzuki Swift has received a 3-star crash test rating from the European New Car Assessment Programme (Euro NCAP) safety watchdog. Euro NCAP tested the left-hand drive version of the Swift but the rating also applies to the right-hand drive versions as well. However, this rating might not apply to the India-spec model since Euro NCAP tested the European-spec model as the Maruti Suzuki Swift does not get ADAS. The Suzuki Swift was also crash-tested by Japan NCAP and it secured a 4-star rating.

In the adult occupant protection tests, the Suzuki Swift scored 26.9 points out of 40, with a 67 per cent rating. In the frontal and lateral impact tests, it got 10.5 and 11.5 points out of 16, respectively. In the rear impact test, the hatchback got 4 points out of 4 and in the rescue and extrication test, it received only 0.8 points out of 4.

Euro NCAP commented, “The passenger compartment of the Swift remained stable in the frontal offset test. Dummy numbers showed good protection of the knees and femurs of both the driver and passenger. Some areas of the dashboard were thought to pose a risk to the knees and femurs of occupants of different sizes and those sitting in different positions and Suzuki did not demonstrate that the same level of protection would be provided to such occupants.”

In the child occupant protection tests, the Swift managed to score 32 points out of a possible 49, with a 65 per cent rating. Euro NCAP tested the Swift with a dummy of a 6-year-old and a 10-year-old child, and the Suzuki hatchback scored 14 points out of 24. In the frontal and lateral impact tests, it scored 8.5 points and 5.5 points out of 12, respectively.

The Swift managed to score only 6 out of 13 points in the safety features test as it does not get an integrated child restraint system (CRS) or a child presence detection system. However, in the CRS installation system, it scored full marks with 12 out of 12 points. Euro NCAP commented, “The Swift has no child presence detection system. All of the child restraint types for which the Swift is designed could be properly insta led and accommodated in the car.”

In the pedestrian protection tests, it scored 48.4 points out of 63, with a 76 per cent rating. It received 29.6 points out of 36 in the impact protection tests and 18.8 points out of 27 in the impact mitigation tests. “Protection of the head of a struck pedestrian or cyclist was predominantly good or adequate, with poor results recorded on the stiff windscreen pillars.  Protection of the pelvis was good at all test locations, while that of the femur and the knee and tibia was mixed but largely good,” noted Euro NCAP.

The Swift managed to secure 11.3 points out of 18 in the safety assist test with a rating of 62 per cent. “Overall, the performance of the autonomous emergency braking (AEB) system was adequate in tests of its reaction to other vehicles. A seatbelt reminder system is fitted as standard to the front and rear seats.  However, the Swift has no occupant detection system in the rear seats, a prerequisite for scoring, so no points were awarded for the seatbelt reminder,” Euro NCAP commented.
