The Indian car market has always preferred mileage over other requirements. However there has been a significant shift towards safety, both from customers and car makers. Since 2019, the Indian government  has been proactively emphasizing car safety by making airbags and ABS mandatory on all cars. The government has also emphasized its intentions to include more safety measures in 2023, which would make Indian roads safer. Indian car manufacturers have started moving on the same lines and have made cars that match international safety standards. Here is a look at the safest cars in India and their respective Global NCAP safety ratings.
