Crash Test Video Compilation of 25 Cars sold in India

Snapshot – As things stand currently, India does not have a crash testing agency for automobiles, one that rates cars and recommends safety measures that a car maker can take to make vehicles safer. What India has today is the archaic Central Motor Vehicle Regulations (CMVR), which is long past its sell-by date. Even as the Indian government is working towards establishing an Indian car safety rating agency on the lines of the Euro NCAP and Latin NCAP agencies, knowing how you and your car are likely to fare in the unfortunate event of an accident is important. CarToq has put together a compilation containing 25 crash test videos of popular cars. Most of these videos are from Latin NCAP tests, where cars feature safety equipment that is similar to what is offered by car makers in India.
