Maruti Alto K10 achieves 2 stars in global NCAP crash tests

The car scored 21.67 points for adult occupant protection and only 3.52 points for child occupant protection.

The Maruti Suzuki Alto K10 has been awarded 2 stars by Global NCAP. The car scored 21.67 points for adult occupant protection and only 3.52 points for child occupant protection.

In the frontal impact test, the Alto K10 provided good head and neck protection for the driver and front passenger. The driver’s and passenger’s knees showed marginal and weak protection, while their shins showed marginal and adequate protection, respectively. The footwell area was rated as unstable, but the body shell was rated as stable.

The car offered good protection for the head and pelvis in the side impact test. The protection of the abdomen and the chest was rated as adequate and poor, respectively. The side pole impact test was not performed as the car does not offer side airbags.

The child seat for the 3 year old failed to prevent excessive forward movement during frontal impact testing. The CRS for the 18 month old offered good head protection and poor chest protection. The car received zero points for not having 3-point seat belts in all seating positions.
