Honda Amaze Reassessed in Global NCAP: Now Rated 2 Stars for Safety

The Honda Amaze, along with the Mahindra Bolero Neo and Kia Carens, underwent recent crash tests conducted by the Global NCAP with updated protocols. This time, this Japanese compact sedan scored just 2-stars. Earlier, it was crash-tested by the Global NCAP in 2019, earning a 4-star safety rating.

It’s worth noting that the Global NCAP hasn’t tested the upgraded version of the Amaze, which now gets seatbelt reminders for all seats. The absence of electronic stability control (ESC) and side curtain airbags further contributed to the low safety rating for the Honda Amaze.
