Mahindra Scorpio N receives 0 stars in ANCAP crash test. Here’s why

Australasian New Car Assessment Program has just tested the Scorpio N and the SUV has scored 0 stars in the crash test. This comes as a surprise because the Global NCAP crash test, the Scorpio N scored 5 stars. Well, there is a reason behind the poor rating. ANCAP gives 0 stars to all vehicles that are not equipped with ADAS or Advanced Driver Aids System. The entity does not consider the platform’s rigidity or any other factor, if the vehicle is not equipped with ADAS, then the safety rating is 0 stars as default.

Mahindra Scorpio N has secured 0 stars because it is not equipped with ADAS features.

The test report says that the passenger compartment remained stable in the frontal offset (MPDB) test. Protection of the driver’s chest and lower legs was adequate. Protection was good for all other critical body regions for both the driver and front passenger.

In the full-width frontal test, the protection of the driver dummy was weak for the chest and good for all other critical body areas. Protection of the rear passenger head, neck and chest was poor based on dummy readings and high seatbelt loads. In the side impact test, protection offered to all critical body regions of the driver was good however the driver seatbelt was observed to unlatch during impact, increasing risk of the potential injury.

In the Child occupant protection test, the Scorpio N scored 14.27 points out of 16 in the dynamic test, in the side dynamic test, the rating was 8 out of 8. The restraint installation got 10 points out of 12 and in on-board safety features there were 7 points out of 13.
