ASEAN NCAP has released a full report on Nissan Magnite‘s crash tests where the India-made crossover received an overall 4-star rating. Do note that the rating is officially valid for the ASEAN countries such as Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, Singapore, Philippines and a few more.
The tested variant was equipped with two front airbags, and front seat belt pre-tensioner & load-limiter (for both driver and passenger). The SUV weighed 1,029 kg (2,269 lbs). While the Magnite sold in India offers standard ABS and front seat belt reminder, according to the report those two are optional for the Indonesian market. ESC is optional too.
Data from the dummies showed there was injury risk to the driver’s chest while the front passenger‘s chest and lower legs received adequate protection. Nevertheless, the SUV’s compartment remained stable in the frontal offset test.
If you watch the video, the side impact test shows some serious deformation of the driver side door and the dummy’s head appears to bang into the window pretty hard, which makes us wonder how the SUV managed to score 4 stars. Perhaps, the GNCAP results will differ.
For adult occupants, the SUV accumulated a total of 39.02 points, and a total of 16.31 points for child occupant protection. Besides the aforementioned optional safety contraptions, the Magnite doesn’t offer any ADAS technology and thus scored a total of 15.28 points in the ‘Safety Assist’ category. The overall weighted score totaled 70.60 points. Download the full report here.
