Ertiga, WagonR, Santro and Redi-GO Fail Crash Test by Global NCAP

Global NCAP’s recent campaign #SaferCarsForIndia has finally been concluded while the latest test results have been shared online. According to the reports, the 2019 Maruti Suzuki Ertiga, Maruti Suzuki WagonR, Hyundai Santro and the Datsun Redi Go are the cars that went under the crash tests and sadly, none of them has been able to achieve a 5-star rating in terms of the utmost safety for the driver and the kids. Tata Nexon is still the only Indian car to pass the crash test with the highest score. The recent crash tests on the four cars have been conducted after the Indian government has announced the ABS, seat-belt reminders, speed alarms and a driver’s side airbag as mandatory features to be equipped in the cars. Coming to the latest Global NCAP crash test results, the Maruti Suzuki Ertiga with two airbags has been able to bag a total of 3 stars for the adult occupant while the MPV also scored the same rating for the child occupant. The crash test involved testing dummies in the MPV while the top speed was limited at 64 kmph only. Overall judging from the low ratings, the 2019 Maruti Suzuki Ertiga’s body shell integrity has been considered unstable when it comes to foot, head, and chest protection. On the other hand, the Maruti Suzuki WagonR has been able to bag only two stars in adult as well as child protection making it borderline unstable despite having a single driver-side airbag. The crash resulted in the breakage of child restraint for the 18-month-old dummy used for the test. The hatchback Hyundai Santro has also been able to score only two stars in both the adult and child protection while fails to offer restraint system for the 18-month-old dummy used for testing. The hatchback seemed to show excessive movement on the impact though the child seat was reasonably protected at the time of the crash. With just one star for adult protection, the Datsun RediGo hatchback is the one that suffered a huge impact while crashing. The crash test proves the RediGo to have adequate head and neck protection for the front seat passengers though, the driver’s seat has minimal chest protection. The hatchback only witnessed two-star rating for child protection while exposed the dummy’s head at the time of the impact.

When will UM Global launch Duramax in Pune, Maharashtra?
2022-12-29 05:47:59 AM
The UM Global Duramax will be the one of most interesting bikes from the UM collection. Being a cruiser styled bike, it comes with 125 and 135 cc options, out of which the 135 cc will be the most preferable value for the Indian market. The bike comes with dual tone paint, a classy fuel tank and a very nice set of alloy wheels. It produces 10.57 BHP and 9.7 NM of torque and is expected to be priced at INR 60,000. The bike comes with a raised handle bar, 16 inch rear fat tyre and a typical cruiser pillion backrest, making it a good option in the category. The only drawback will be its low powered engine, which might not worry the Indian riders as it will facilitate better mileage. It will launch somewhere in the mid of 2016 or early 2017. The mileage of the Duramax is expected to be around 55 kmpl.
I need to book a UM Global bike, to whom should I contact?
2022-12-29 05:47:29 AM
UM Global bikes were showcased at the 2014 Auto Expo and after that, they have got no news for their launch in India. They are bringing in the vehicles for testing purpose, but the whole process will take a lot of time and the brand may also take a lot of time for setting up its dealerships and service centers. I would recommend to go for a more trusted and value for money brand if you need a motorcycle urgently. If you have one with yourself currently, then you can wait for the brand to get in with its new news for the launch of its bike in India. Even after the launch, the smaller bikes would be getting in first, making way for the bigger and better alternates afterwards. You can estimate an easy waiting period of 1 year for the brand settlement and launch.
What is the top speed of UM Global Renegade Commando?
2022-12-29 05:46:08 AM
The top speed for the UM Global Renegade Commando has not yet been disclosed by the company. We expect it to be around 110-120 kmph as the bike comes with a light design, weighing around 127 kg, without fuel. The bike looks a serious cruiser with its antique looking paint job. It resembles more like a retired world war vehicle and that makes it a really impressive ride to have. It will be launched after the UM Global's commuter offerings are launched and is expected to be for INR 1,25,000.

Shall I wait for UM Global Renegade Commando or go for the Bajaj Avenger 220?

The Bajaj Avenger would be better option than waiting for the UM Global Renegade Commando as its launch plans has still not been made clear. UM will enter with its basic motorcycles first and later would introduce the higher range. The Avenger is powered by a very successful 220 DTS-i engine, which also powers the all time favorite Pulsar 220F.
