Why Maruti Suzuki Ends Up Sacrificing on Safety of Its Cars in India?

Considering its modest price, Suzuki Maruti‘s main components, including the engine and gearbox, are extremely reliable. Many consumers commend Maruti for having some “true gems” when it comes to petrol engines that outperform those from rival automakers in the same price range and class.

However, the Maruti Suzuki cars are wonderful for fuel efficiency, but they don’t seem robust enough, thanks to thin panels and low curb weights. Furthermore, the Global NCAP assessments confirmed that Maruti Suzuki vehicles marketed in India have less structural strength than Suzuki vehicles supplied in developed markets.

Reason behind the Crashes

Maruti autos’ poor construction quality is one of the key causes for their poor crash test results. Under 5 lakhs, Maruti Suzuki offers the cheapest automobiles. It’s difficult to provide great build quality and adequate safety measures at this price.

Maruti Suzuki automobiles, except the S-Cross, are now known as Tin ka Dabba due to their exceptional build quality. The new Heartect platform underpins all of Maruti’s next-generation vehicles, including the Baleno, Swift, Dzire, and Ciaz.

The whole weight of this platform is decreased by hundreds of kilograms, which helps to offer excellent mileage but lacks safety. Maruti says that the Heartect platform is safer than ever before and has excellent crumple zones, but we all know the sad truth.

About the Maruti Suzuki Cars

According to the sources, when talking about safety, Suzuki vehicles are utterly useless. Maruti Suzuki makes a lot of money in India. In India and Australia, Suzuki sells the identical Baleno model. The maximum price for the Baleno in India and Australia is nearly identical, yet the specifications are vastly different.

Suzuki Baleno Australia’s top variation has a four-speed automatic transmission and six airbags, whereas the Indian version has a manual transmission and two airbags. The difference in price between a manual and a typical automatic gearbox (just the gearboxes, not the automobile) is over 40,000 dollars. The car that is sold in Australia is made in India and imported from here.

Sacrificing on Safety

As per the sources, the Suzuki management is quite reluctant towards better safety of occupants. After pathetic results of Indian cars performing on Crashworthiness. When interviewed on not-so-safe cars then the boss of this firm said that they are manufacturing cars as per Govt. norms.

Volkswagen, on the other hand, rose and announced that starting the next day, they will only sell cars with airbags. They did recall all of the base model cars that lacked airbags at the time.

Moreover, over 800,000 individuals have perished in Maruti crashes during the course of the car’s 23-year manufacture. You may give this company the benefit of the doubt because they were only attempting to build a business in this country. But, at the end of the day, the truth is the truth.

Airbags do not necessarily imply increased safety. Global NCAP evaluated the Renault Kwid for crashworthiness. Even the airbag-equipped variant failed the test. Airbags provide a second degree of safety, with an automotive structure providing the primary level of protection. Even the finest airbag in the world will not be able to save the people if the automobile construction is weak.
