Mahindra Scorpio N Gets 5 Stars Global NCAP Rating

The Scorpio-N, Mahindra’s newest SUV, received a five-star overall NCAP safety certification. The SUV was examined using the updated GNCAP safety test procedures. Frontal airbags, a seatbelt pre-tensioner and load limiter, a seat belt reminder, and ISOFIX were all included in the test vehicle.

In testing for protecting adult occupants, the Scorpio-N received a score of 29.25 out of 34, and in tests for protecting children, a score of 28.93 out of 49. The bodyshell and footwell region were stable and able to bear additional loads, according to GNCAP. After the XUV700, the Scorpio-N is the brand’s second SUV to receive a five-star global NCAP certification.

The 2.0-litre gasoline or 2.2-liter diesel engines are available for the Scorpio-N. Six-speed manual or six-speed automatic gearboxes are choices for both powertrains. Additionally, Mahindra’s “4Xplorer” four-wheel drive system helps the latter.

Adult occupant crash test rating:

Adult occupant safety testing for Mahindra’s SUV earned a score of 29.25 out of a possible 34, earning it a 5-star grade. The Mahindra Scorpio head N’s and neck protection for the driver and passenger received good ratings from test participants. The driver’s and passenger’s chests only receive modest protection, though. The Scorpio-N demonstrated good occupant protection in the side impact test with a deformable barrier, scoring 16 out of a potential 17 points under the revised testing protocol. The Mahindra SUV passed the side pole impact tests with an “OK” grade, although the chest area of the occupants obtained a “poor” rating.

Child occupant crash test rating:

In this segment, the Scorpio-N received a score of 28.93 out of 49, earning it a 3-star rating. This includes the maximum dynamic score of 24 and 4.93 points out of 12 for the installation of a child restraint device.

The Scorpio-N was put through its paces by GNCAP using two infant dummies: one that was 18 months old and the other was 3 years old. They were secured in the vehicle utilising support legs and i-size anchorages, both of which reduced the risk of head exposure in the case of a frontal collision. Additionally, the CRS provided complete side impact protection. The SUV’s ISOFIX mounting points are located on the outer rear seats of the second row, according to the testers.

Scorpio N other details:

Two front airbags and ABS were installed on the Mahindra Scorpio-N SUV for testing purposes. According to GNCAP, side curtain airbags and electronic stability control (ESC) are not standard equipment. However, the majority of manufactured models come standard with curtain airbags. The kid occupant protection result was impacted by the lack of three-point seatbelts, resulting in a three-star rating, according to the GNCAP assessment.

The price range for the Mahindra Scorpio-N is between Rs 12 lakh and Rs 21.65 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).

What are the new GNCAP regulations?

A vehicle only receives a 5-star rating under the new Global NCAP standards if it achieves the necessary scores and complies with GNCAP’s requirements for ESC, pedestrian protection, pole side impact, and seat belt reminders.

The fact that the entire procedure has been redesigned makes it a little challenging to compare vehicles evaluated using the old protocols to those tested using the new ones. However, a star rating under the new protocols is reflective of more well-rounded protection that takes into account side impact as well as active safety features like ESC, which helps prevent an accident in the first place. A star rating under the old protocols was reflective of performance in a front crash test.

In India, GNCAP has also examined Maruti’s Swift, S-Presso, and Ignis cars. The Swift scored one star for occupant protection for both adults and children. The S-Presso and Ignis each scored one star for passengers, but neither received any stars for safeguarding children.
