Maruti, Hyundai, Mahindra and Renault Cars Score Zero In International Crash Tests

Five top Indian cars, the Maruti Eeco, Celerio, Renault Kwid, Hyundai Eon and Mahindra Scorpio, miserably failed in a crash test conducted by Global New Car Assessment Programme. The cars were made to crash at a speed of 64 KMPH and then rated for passenger safety. All of five of them were rated nadir for adults, but managed to score a slightly less embarrassing two star for child safety. But Celerio scored a single star here too.
