Maruti Ertiga scores 3-stars in Global NCAP crash test - Team-BHP

733433

The Maruti Ertiga has scored 3-stars for both adult and child occupant safety in crash tests conducted by Global NCAP.

According to the test report, the car offered good protection to the head and neck of the driver and passenger. The protection for the driver’s chest was marginal and that for the passenger’s chest was good.

Protection for the driver's and passenger’s knees was marginal.

The bodyshell of the car was rated as unstable.

A front-facing child seat for a 3 year old was able to prevent excessive forward movement and offered good protection to the head and fair protection to the chest.

The Child Restraint System (CRS) for an 18 month old child showed poor protection to the head and chest.

The test car was equipped with driver and passenger airbags, seat belt reminder, driver side seat belt pre-tensioners, ABS and ISOFIX child safety seat anchor points.

The Suzuki Ertiga achieves a three star rating - GlobalNCAP

The Ertiga achieved three stars for adult occupant protection and three stars for child occupant protection. The Ertiga offers two frontal airbags as standard.

Its structure was rated as a borderline unstable performance which can and should be improved. Its footwell area was rated as unstable and pedals displacement showed risks to the lower legs of the driver.

Head and neck protection for adult occupants was good. Chest protection for passenger was good and driver chest received marginal protection. The passenger pre-tensioner failed to work properly.

Child occupant protection showed poor results for the 18 month old dummy with the CRS installed forward facing while global best practice indicates a rearward facing position offers better protection for this age group.

The Ertiga offers standard ISOFIX anchorages. Overall, the Ertiga achieved three stars for child occupant protection.

The Ertiga offers standard two Seat Belt Reminders (SBR) in the front seats. It is surprising that this car is not offering 3 point belts for all occupants.

Attention:

I hereby withdraw all recommendations made in the past regarding Suzuki vehicles, as my Suzuki Ertiga is rusting all over (externally and internally), after only 2 years.

i had previously reported on this site that rust was noticed within the first few months, which the dealership had repaired, however, the repair did not last long. and, other parts of the vehicle started showing rust.

according to the dealer, Suzuki SA (warrantee division) doesn't want to have the vehicle repaired.

Suzuki Ertiga to become new Toyota Avanza

Toyota's rebadging of Suzuki products is continuing with indications of the Suzuki Ertiga being the next model to get a Toyota badge.

The rebadging of Suzuki products as Toyotas has been fascinating to watch. Take the Suzuki Baleno, a good car that offered a lot of value for not much money, yet sold so few. However, stick a Toyota badge on it, call it the Starlet and the sales figures go through the roof. The car is fundamentally the same as the Suzuki, with just a different badge on the nose.

The same can be said for the Suzuki Vitara Brezza and Toyota Urban Cruiser, with the latter selling in much greater numbers than the car upon which it is based. What's the deal with Toyota and Suzuki here, anyway?

Now, according to a fresh report coming out of Indian publication IndianAutosBlog, the Toyota/Suzuki product offensive is continuing with more rebadged cars in the pipeline. The big news is the Suzuki Ertiga will be given the treatment, and it will sit underneath the Toyota Innova. That model is no longer offered in South Africa, so we suspect the Ertiga will be rebadged as the new Toyota Avanza - a popular and affordable MPV. As before, we expect there to be no mechanical differences, with some slight cosmetic changes inside and out in order to differentiate it from its donor car.

shame Suzuki SA must be pissed. I'm cool with this as long as Suzuki doesn't become popular amongst hijackers.

Toyota should look into buying Suzuki at this point. They are copying and pasting anyway.
