Honda City, Honda Jazz, Nissan Magnite, and Renault Kiger score 4 stars on Global NCAP safety rating

In a recent Global NCAP’s crash test of four popular car models–the Nissan Magnite, Renault Kiger, Honda City (fourth generation), and Honda Jazz–all scored a four-star rating on adult-occupant protection. 

Honda City (4th generation)

The 5th generation Honda City has already been rolled out  in India and Nepal. However, in the recent tests, the 4th generation City was crash-tested by the GNCAP. It of course performed very well.

The 4th generation compact sedan secured a four-star rating for both adult-occupant and child-occupant protection, scoring 12.03 out of 17 and 38.27 out of 40, respectively.

The four-door sedan’s base variant comes with two front airbags, a seat-belt reminder, ISOFIX anchorages, and four-channel ABS.

For its part, the 5th generation City gets additional safety features such as six airbags, Agile Handling Assist, immobilizer with anti-theft alarm, vehicle-stability assist, four rear-parking sensors, and TPMS.

Honda Jazz

Despite being the older model, the Jazz sets an example in terms of safety and protection. The premium hatchback–built on Honda’s ACE platform–managed to secure a four-star rating in the adult-occupant protection (scoring 13.89 out of 17,) and three stars for child-occupant protection (scoring 31.54 out of 40). 

The five-door hatchback comes with two front airbags, a seat-belt reminder, and four-channel ABS as standard. The base variant lacks front seat-belt pretensioners and ISOFIX anchorages. 

However, the Jazz in Nepal gets additional safety features such as ISOFIX, vehicle-stability assist, hill-start assist, and emergency stop signal.
