The final car on this list is the fourth-generation Honda City. The fourth-gen Honda City has been awarded a 4-star safety rating for adult occupant protection and even 4-stars for child occupant protection in the Global NCAP crash test.

However, the bodyshell of the fourth-gen Honda City has been rated as unstable and it is incapable of withstanding further loadings. 

Commenting on the announcement, Alejandro Furas, Global NCAP Secretary-General said, “This is an important milestone moment for our crash testing in India, with fifty models tested to date. There has been significant progress on vehicle safety design since we began our tests in 2014 but, as we see from our latest results, there is still more to be done to achieve the high safety standards that consumers in India rightly demand.”

He further added, “It has been encouraging to see some leading Indian manufacturers respond so well to the #SaferCarsforIndia challenge, but also rather disappointing that major global brands fall short on safety in India whilst comfortably exceeding these requirements in other global markets.”
