Fronx safety rating is not available as this compact SUV is recently launched., so its crash testing has not yet been done by Global NCAP or any other safety rating organization. But if we look closely at the platform that make it, airbags, safety features, then it can be estimated the safety rating.
6 Safety Features That Will Help Estimate the Fronx Safety Rating
How safe any car will be depends on its structure and strength of front, side and rear side and how strong its structure can be gauged from the NCAP ratings of earlier vehicles built on that platform.
Maruti Fronx is given strong platform plus structure which is built on Heartect platform, Baleno is also based on the same platform which did not perform very well in Global NCAP. However, the company says that the Baleno 2022 version has been redesigned with a stronger structure that has become heavier and stronger than the old Baleno and the Fronx is even stronger. The Fronx weighs 1450 kg and the turbo version weighs 1480 kg, which is more than the Baleno.
Total Effective Control Technology
Suzuki has developed the Fronx on the Total Effective Control Technology concept, the company has named this new technology as TECT. This technology effectively absorbs the crash energy at the time of an accident, thereby reducing the impact of the strokes. High tensile steel is used to make its major parts which makes the Fronx strong, light and safe.
Maruti Fronx performs well in NCAP rating, for this the company has successfully tested full frontal impact, offset impact, side impact in compliance with international safety standards.
Seat Belt Pre-Tensioners With Force Limiters
The seat belt pre tensioner restrains the passengers and the force limiters prevent injury inflicted by the seat belt.
ABS With EBD
The Fronx comes with Anti-Lock Braking System which prevents the wheels from locking up under heavy braking and the EBD (Electronic Braking Distribution) provided in the car ensures an efficient and effective braking.
Pedestrian Protection Compliance
Advanced sensitive sensors have been used in the Maruti Suzuki Fronx which detects human movement and automatically applies brakes when required. This not only ensures the safety of the people sitting in the car but also the safety of the pedestrians.
Airbags, ISOFIX child seat anchorage and other features
It also has ISOFIX child seat anchorage for the safety of children along with 6 airbags. Along with this, features like 360° view camera, Electronic Stability Program (ESP), parking sensor and hill hold assistant have also been provided in it.
