Recently, a well-known corporate figure and former chairman of Tata Sons perished in a car accident, generating significant concerns about road safety in India. Given the number of fatalities that are reported each year, Indian roads are among the riskiest in the world to drive on. However, poor quality and under-equipped automobiles are also a contributing factor in the high mortality rate. In order to compel the use of safety equipment in automobiles, the Indian government is moving quickly. After making dual and ABS with EBD necessary, the government has now taken the step of requiring 6 airbags in a vehicle.
Since things are quickly evolving and tragedies like Cyrus Mistry’s murder are focusing attention on road safety, we have produced a list of the best 5 vehicles in each sector with six airbags for less than Rs 15 lakh:
The newest debut in India and first on our list of the safest automobiles both come standard with six airbags in every model. The Kia Carens MPV was introduced in India for a starting price of Rs 8.99 lakh (ex-showroom), and a six-seater version is included as standard equipment, making it the most reasonably priced car in India with six airbags.
With six airbags, the Hyundai i20 is a high-end hatchback and one of the most cheap vehicles on this list. The cost of the Asta (O) model with 6 airbags is Rs 9.5 lakh (ex-showroom). The Hyundai i20 is one of the segment’s vehicles with the most features, aside from its six airbags.
The freshly released 2022 Kia Seltos, a representative of the mid-size SUV market, is another Kia vehicle on the list. Similar to the Carens, Kia India just introduced the revised version of the SUV. All variations now come standard with 6 airbags, thus the base model starts at Rs. 10.49 lakh (ex-showroom) and goes up to Rs. 18.65 lakh (ex-showroom) for the top-of-the-line model.
The Hyundai Venue small SUV, which has 6 airbags and a reasonable price, is another Hyundai on the list. The Hyundai Venue’s SX (O) model, one of the higher-specified variations, comes standard with six airbags. The six airbag Hyundai Venue has a starting price of Rs 11.3 lakh (ex-showroom).
Verna from Hyundai
The only sedan on our list with six airbags is the Hyundai Verna, which is also the most cheap option. The Verna SX (O) model from Hyundai comes with 6 airbags. Starting at Rs 11.1 lakh (ex-showroom), the Hyundai Verna with 6 airbags increases in price based on options. The third vehicle from the South Korean carmaker on our list is the Hyundai Verna.
