The fourth-generation Suzuki Swift was rigorously tested to assess its safety standards. In the Adult Occupant Protection category, the Swift managed to achieve a score of 26.9 points. This translates to 67%. As for the Child Occupant Protection category, the Swift scores a total of 32.1 points, or 65%.

One of the notable aspects of the European market-spec Swift is its comprehensive list of safety features. The car in Europe comes equipped with dual front airbags, side head airbags for all occupants, and side chest and pelvis airbags for front occupants.

As we all are aware, the Swift fourth generation sold in India differs significantly from its European counterpart. The Indian-spec Swift lacks the ADAS suite found in the European model, and it also does not feature hybrid powertrain technology.

Despite these differences, the Indian Swift comes with a range of safety features. These include six airbags, hill hold assist, Electronic Stability Program (ESP), ABS with EBD, reverse camera parking, and Isofix mounts.

Will Swift be tested by Bharat NCAP?

At the moment, there are no reports that have stated that the new Swift in India will go under Bharat NCAP crash tests. However, it could be tested by the authorities in the coming period.

However, the results of these vehicles have not been published as of now. Bharat NCAP, for those who may not be aware, is a voluntary program applicable to vehicles in the M1 category. This includes passenger vehicles with a gross weight of up to 3,500 kg and no more than eight seats, excluding the driver’s seat.

All the cars tested in Bharat NCAP are the base variants. The program evaluates vehicles based on three factors, which are adult occupant protection, child occupant protection, and safety assist technologies.
