Mahindra’s compact SUV model, the XUV300 received the ‘Safer Choice’ award, by the respected Global New Car Assessment Program (GNCAP). The XUV300 is the first ever car in India to receive this global recognition, by exceeding all the safety standards offered by global car manufacturers.
Between 2014–2020, the GNCAP completed safety assessments on more than thirty-eight vehicles, among them the Mahindra XUV300 is the first ever car to win the ‘Safer Choice’ award as part of the #SaferCarsForIndia campaign.
In January this year, the XUV300 also won a 5-star rating for adult occupant protection, and a 4-star rating for child protection by the GNCAP. The latter was another first for any Indian car.
Commenting on this achievement, Rajan Wadhera, President-Automotive, Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd., said, “This is a proud moment for Mahindra as the XUV300 receives Global NCAP’s ‘Safer Choice’ award for being the safest car in India, an accolade only available to automakers achieving the highest levels of safety performance for cars sold in the country. The Mahindra XUV300 is the first ever car to score 5-star rating for adult occupants and a 4 star rating for child occupant protection by GNCAP, thereby qualifying for and winning the “Safer Choice” award. I am sure that this recognition, will further spur us to achieve the highest safety for our entire range of vehicles.”
