The Mahindra Marazzo too underwent Global NCAP’s crash test and scored 4 stars in the adult occupant protection. The tested model weighed 1,889 kg, and the tests were performed at 64 km/h.
The MPV was equipped with dual front airbags, front seat belt pretensioners, driver seat belt reminder, ISOFIX anchorages and 4-channel ABS.
In the Adult Occupant protection, the report commented that the protection offered to the driver and passenger’s head and neck was good. Driver’s chest showed marginal protection while the passenger’s chest showed adequate protection. Driver and passenger’s knees showed good protection. The bodyshell was rated as stable and it was capable of withstanding further loadings. The car offers SBR for the passenger but apparently, it does not meet Global NCAP requirements.
As for the Child Occupant, the Marazzo scored 2 stars. The child seat for the 3 year old was installed forward facing with ISOFIX and top tether, and was not able to prevent excessive forward movement during the impact leaving the head vulnerable while offering fair protection to the chest, the report said.
The 18 month old CRS (child restraint system) was installed with ISOFIX and leg support rearward facing, and it showed good protection for head and chest. The recommended CRS did not show incompatibility, added the report. The vehicle offers standard ISOFIX and top tether anchorages in the 2 outboard rear seats and offers 3 point belts in all seating positions. Passenger airbag disconnection is possible. More here.
This result is valid for all Marazzo units produced as from November 16th, 2018 (from VIN MA1WA2ES1J2L11253).
