Maruti Suzuki India, the country's largest carmaker, today announced to offer dual airbags and ABS as optional features across all variants of the Swift and Dzire including the entry level ones - LXI and LDI. The company has been already offering these safety features in some of its other cars including Maruti Suzuki WagonR, Ertiga, S-Cross and Baleno.
R S Kalsi, Executive Director, Marketing & Sales, MSIL, said, “Swift and DZire are two of the most popular cars in India. Both have played an instrumental role in shaping the Indian automobile industry. The cars are known for contemporary styling, superior comfort, convenience features and performance. By offering driver and co-driver airbags and anti-lock braking system (ABS) across all variants of Swift and DZire, we want to further strengthen their popularity among customers.”
Maruti Suzuki India is planning to offer airbags and ABS (anti-lock braking system) with all its mass market models, much before the government regulations come into effect in 2017. The govt of India is planning to make the front impact, side impact and off-set frontal impact crash tests mandatory for all new cars from October 2017. And to ensure passenger safety, all the carmakers will need to offer necessary safety features including airbags and anti-lock braking system besides proving their car's structural integrity.
