Bhai log, at the time when I heard it was crash tested as per norms during the time of it's launch 3.5 yrs back I too couldn't believe it then as well. At the time when it got 4 stars in NCAP I was happy to re-consider my views on MSIL's new gen cars but soon after when their new Swift was tested and the result came out, the story was back to square one. It might have been the Nexon's 5 star rating that possibly prompted MSIL to get the Brezza tested and since they already knew it complied with crash norms so they weren't afraid of loosing face for it otherwise until Nexon's crash test why did MSIL not got the Brezza tested between 2016-2017? Why in 2018 only post the Nexon's test did Maruti Suzuki went ahead with the test? It was because Nexon was a better car than Brezza in all possible performance parameters for Diesel engine and on top of it Nexon got 5 stars in NCAP. So to avoid any loss of customers of it MSIL had made this move. All I can say is, perhaps Brezza's NCAP result was a "one-off" incident or in slang language a "fluke"

Volkswagen Sharan scores four stars in crash test despite rear door detaching

volkswagen-sharan-euro-ncap-pole-crash-after-test-dec-2019-1.jpg


The Volkswagen Sharan has received four stars out of five in its Euro NCAP crash test, despite its rear passenger door detaching during impact assessments.
NCAP’s side pole impact test is the organisation’s toughest assessment, and sees a car propelled at 20mph into a 25cm-diameter pole designed to mimic a tree or telegraph post. NCAP says the types of collisions this simulates “are severe and the frequency of death or serious injury is high.”

During the Sharan’s side pole assessment, the rear nearside passenger door almost entirely detached from the car’s body, presenting a “risk of occupant ejection”, according to assessors. Despite this, the Sharan was awarded four stars overall, meaning it was judged to offer “overall good performance in crash protection”. The Sharan was rated 89 per cent for the protection if provides adult occupants, and 78 per cent for child occupant protection
