According to a media report, 9 out of 15 Maruti Suzuki cars currently on sale in India meet the new crash test norms that will come into effect from October 1, 2019.

These include the S-Cross, Ciaz, Ertiga, Vitara Brezza, Baleno, Swift, Dzire, Ignis and Celerio.

Passenger cars like the WagonR, Alto K10 and Alto 800 do not comply with the latest crash regulations. However, replacements for these models are currently under development and the new cars are expected to meet the safety regulations.

As far as cars like the Eeco and Omni are concerned, it was reported back in March 2018 that Maruti might upgrade both these models.

As per the revised regulations, cars sold in India will have to pass a new set of crash tests, which include full-frontal impact, off-set frontal impact and side impact tests. The rules will be applicable to all new cars sold in the country.

Additionally, new pedestrian safety norms will also come into force from October 1, 2018 for all new cars launched in India and will extend to all new cars sold from October 1, 2020.
