Mind you the same car which is sold in Europe got a four star rating by the Euro NCAP. The model tested was made in India and meant for the Chilean market. The basic version of the Hyundai Grand i10, made in India and purchased in Chile, scored zero stars in Adult Occupant Protection and two stars Child Occupant Protection. Comparing this unit to the model tested by Euro NCAP, there are clear differences in the equipment levels as the European basic version offers frontal and side airbags.
Moreover the European version provides child seat ISOFIX anchorages and the anti-skid technology, electronic stability control (ESC) added to a stable structure, resulting in a four star rating by Euro NCAP. The unit tested by Latin NCAP had no airbags, no ISOFIX anchorages and no ESC equipment and also presents an unstable performance of the structure.
Maria Fernanda Rodriguez, Latin NCAP President said, "It is sad that the Hyundai Grand i10 offered in Latin America is different in terms of safety to the one offered in Europe. Given this result and knowing that Hyundai is a brand with presence in many markets around the world, where it sells the same products, they should offer the same safety level in all the countries. Moreover I hope that this is a wake-up call to governments and that they consider mandating adequate safety levels in all vehicles and for all citizens"
The Grand i10 sold in India too doesn't come with ABS and airbags on the base variant. Both Airbags and ABS are provided as an option on the Asta variant. With these safety features the petrol variant of the Grand i10 costs Rs. 5.90 lakh while the diesel is priced at Rs. 6.77 lakh (both prices ex-showroom Delhi)
