In a Crash Test Conducted by Global NCAP, The Honda Jazz and Fourth-Generation City Both Received Four Stars.

The newest batch of Global NCAP (GNCAP) crash test results are in, and two Hondas – the Jazz and the fourth-generation City – are among the vehicles tested. Both cars received four stars for adult occupancy, but the Jazz received just three stars in this test, while the City received four stars for child occupancy. The most basic variations for sale are used for the test, as is customary with Global NCAP crash tests, but as is now the law in India, this implies two airbags, ABS, and front seatbelt warning as standard.

2022 In the GNCAP Crash Test, The Honda Jazz Receives a Four-Star Rating.

This Honda Jazz generation (the second in India, the third globally) has been on the market since 2015 and will be updated in 2020. It's now Honda's only hatchback in India, competing against the Maruti Baleno, Tata Altroz, Hyundai i20, and Toyota Glanza in the premium hatchback market, where the room is still its best selling point.

Because it is the oldest model in the class, its strong performance in crash tests is encouraging. Interestingly, although having the same four-star adult occupancy rating as the Gen 4 City, it has a slightly better score of 13.89 points (out of 17). According to the analysis, the good head and neck protection for front-seat occupants was due to a sound bodyshell structure that could sustain heavier weights. However, due to the possibility of impact with "hazardous structures behind the dashboard," front occupant knee protection was evaluated as minimal.

Due to a shortage of ISOFIX mounting points (although child restraint systems were present and correctly marked), and poor protection on both child seat tests in some regions, the child protection rating was reduced to three stars. It received 31.54 out of a possible 49 points.
