As for the India-spec version it additionally comes with speed warning system and seatbelt reminders as per mandate by the India’s latest safety norms. The sedan received just one star in the child occupant protection test conducted by Global NCAP. Even though the tested model featured Honda-recommended child-seats, the test results revealed some exposure and probability of injury on the 18 month old child dummies. Since the Global NCAP uses same norms for Safer Cars for India and Safer Cars for Africa campaigns, the results are applicable for the Indian version as well.

Coming to the Suzuki Ignis produced at Maruti Suzuki India’s Manesar unit in Gurugram, it received just one star in the child protection test and three stars in the adult protection. The tested model was equipped with safety features including dual airbags, ABS and ISOFIX anchorages as standard. Based on the scores, protection offered to the driver’s chest was rated weak and knee protection was rated as marginal. Furthermore, the bodyshell was rated as unstable and not capable to withstand further loadings. Ignis sold in South Africa is identical to the India-spec model save for the additional seatbelt reminder for the co-driver. The tested Suzuki Ignis lacks specific Child Restraint System (CRS) and the child seat used during the test was not good enough to protect the chest area of a three year old child dummy. It was also found that there is no provision to disable airbag on the co-driver’s side.
