The model that was previously pre-facelifted Creta which is currently available in India was previously examined with Global NCAP as well. However, the manufactured-in-India Creta did not receive only an average rating of 3 stars. That’s before the GNCAP’s more rigorous testing procedure was implemented in July. This means that the Creta that was tested in India Creta did not undergo testing for side-impact safety assist systems, side impact, and pedestrian protection.
