Is the Indian Ecosport still a safe car ? in AAA - Ask Autocar Anything Posted July 30, 2020 · Report reply Hello everyone Just read that the Indian Ecosport got 4 stars in NHTSA ratings in 2019. But is it the car we get to buy in India ? I read somewhere that close to 150 alterations were made to the car sold in India that went for testing . And it probably isn't the same car sold in India . Is this true ? Shall be attaching that source from a post on Team BHP. Because I am considering to buy a compact Suv soon. Going for safety over ride comfort and features if I go for Ecosport. Don't want to go for the Mahindra engined Ecosport as I have had bad experience with Mahindra In the past. So is the Ecosport on par with say a Duster ? Or is it just a thick metalled version like Scorpio which cud deceive the image created if it goes to GNCAP testing in 2020 ?
