Maruti Suzuki Fronx undergoes crash tests

Maruti Suzuki recently released a video of the Fronx undergoing crash tests which are internally conducted by the carmaker. This kind of indicates that the Fronx is getting ready to be the next car to be tested by Bharat NCAP, which started its first set of crash tests recently with Tata’s Harrier and Safari.

Maruti Suzuki Fronx Crash tests – Good for both the SUV and Brand

Although this was an internal test conducted by the brand and no official confirmation has been made for the Fronx to be tested by BNCAP, this time Maruti Suzuki is quite confident when it comes to their car’s safety and build quality. If the Coupe-SUV really lives up to the claims the brand makes in terms of road safety, it will boost its sales.

Maruti Suzuki on the other hand also gets the benefit of changing the brand image. You see, the carmaker has been known for building cars with low build quality and safety, even regularly termed as “tin cans”. So, if Fronx manages to get good ratings, it will help the brand in taking a step forward towards changing its plagued brand image for good.
