By autoX Editorial | on March 6, 2017

In the Global NCAP crash test, the Chevrolet Enjoy has received a zero star rating. The Ford Figo Aspire in the same test was awarded three stars.

As a part of the #SaferCarsForIndia campaign, Global NCAP has crash tested the Chevrolet Enjoy and the Ford Figo Aspire, both of which were manufactured in India. The tests reveal that the Chevrolet Enjoy MPV which is sold in India has failed in its crash test while the Figo Aspire was awarded three stars.

Global NCAP tested the base variant of both vehicles. The Enjoy which in the base variant gets no safety features, received zero stars for adult occupant protection and two stars for child occupant safety.

The Figo Aspire and the Figo hatchback were awarded three stars for adult occupant safety, and a two-star rating for rear seat child occupant safety. The Figo comes equipped with driver airbag as standard, while the Aspire comes with dual airbags as standard equipment. This additional airbag safety feature was the reason gave the Fords the edge in the crash test results.

David Ward, Secretary General of Global NCAP said: “Ford’s three star result shows that basic levels of safety are achievable as standard in the Indian vehicle market. It is also encouraging to see progress in safety compared to the earlier version of the Figo we tested in 2014.

In contrast, we are extremely concerned about the poor result of the Chevrolet Enjoy. There is nothing to enjoy about a zero star safety score and GM should be embarrassed that they are selling cars with such inadequate levels of occupant protection to Indian consumers”.
