We are listing down ten cars that went through certain safety tests carried away by renowned agencies like NCAP, IIHS, and UN. Although, every car goes through these tests but only few get out grabbing all star rating. Before moving to the showrooms, the vehicles go through rigorous tests including chassis test, collision test, airbag test and many more.


Some Indians cars have been marked unsafe for driving and have been banned in some parts of India, mainly in the hilly regions of north east. Take a look on the risky cars below.

1.Tata Nano

Tata Nano received Zero rating in NCAP test and it is also too compact to fit all the important safety equipments that is needed by an ideal car. The chassis is very weak and the body collapsed completely during a collision test. The body is unstable which makes it difficult to handle on uneven terrains.
