Suzuki Swift Hybrid RS achieves 5-star rating in Japan New Car Assessment Program (JNCAP) crash test
Suzuki Swift Hybrid RS, a 3rd generation variant achieves 5-star rating in Japan New Car Assessment Program (JNCAP) crash test. It has received a score of 178.3 points – 87.8 points for occupant safety, 78.87 points for pedestrian safety, and 4 points for PSBR. This is the highest safety rating received by the Swift and the car has a collective score of 178.3 points, based on four tests – 1. full-wrap frontal collision test, 2. offset frontal collision test, 3. side collision test, and 4. rear-end collision performance test. For this crash test, the JNCAP used the Hybrid RS variant of the third-generation Swift. The car scored 87.8 points for occupant safety, 78.87 points for pedestrian safety and 4 points for passenger seatbelt reminder (PSBR).
Despite being built on the same Heartect platform, the Japan-spec Suzuki Swift clearly offers a lot more safety features compared to the Maruti Suzuki Swift manufactured and sold in India. In addition to ABS with EBD and brake assist, the Japan-spec Swift Hybrid RS comes with six airbags (2 front, 2 side and 2 curtain) as standard. Furthermore, the car also features some smart safety tech like electric stability programme (EPS) along with Dual Sensor Brake Support (DSBS) collision-mitigation system.
Among additional features, the Japan-spec model also comes with a better driver assistance system, which includes – Hill Hold Control (HHC), around view monitor, Lane Departure Warning (LDW), Weaving alert, Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), high-beam assist and all-wheel disc brakes.
Earlier a year ago, when the new generation Suzuki Swift has been subjected to the European New Car Assessment Program (Euro NCAP), the car managed to receive a 3-star safety rating. However, the 3-star rating was received by the standard variant of the Swift, while the variant equipped with the optional safety pack, received a 4-star rating in the Euro NCAP crash test.
