  • Accord’s safety features include six airbags, ABS, EBD, and a G-CON (G-FORCE Control Technology).
  • With its absorbing zones G-CON reduces the impact of accident force on passengers.
  • It also enhances pedestrian safety by controlling G-FORCE transferred from the car to the person.
  • Usage of high tensile steel body in car improves torsional rigidity which improves passenger safety.

Honda CR-V

(Safety Ratings out of 5: 5 for adult, 4 for child and 3 for pedestrians)

Maruti Suzuki Grand Vitara

  • This car houses a monocoque body structure which improves stability and rigidity for all driving conditions at all speeds.
  • Sure Stop Braking System (SSBS) along with the anti-lock brakes, electronic brake force distribution, and brake assist prevents the wheels from locking during sudden braking.
  • In addition to this the rear crumple zone, collapsible steering column, and active head restrain works in tandem ensuring higher safety standards.
  • As in all cars airbags achieve the ideal absorption and spreading of crash energy.

Maruti Suzuki Swift

  • Built with a rigid and strong body causes minimal deformation during a frontal impact.
  • It is also loaded with dual front airbags, front car seatbelt pre-tensioners with load limiters, and energy absorbing trim.
  • Anti-lock brakes, electronic brake force distribution, and a brake assist system make it one of the safest cars on road.
