After understanding these things, I can say I am least bothered about NCAP. 1. I am more interested in 56kmph testing results and precautions taken surrounding that than this NCAP. If larger or more advanced countries also go with 56kmph I am ok with that speed. Increasing by 8 kms does not make car a completely different machine. Then why they want to stop at 64, people drive at 80, 100 and more than that. 80-100 is legally allowed also. Important thing is one I understand 56kmph or 64 kmph at the time of impact. So someone is driving 60 or 100 that is different aspect. In that case we also have to bring in breaking efficiency. They chose little higher than legally mandated because they want to have a space for existence. If it is at 56kmph they do not have independent existence and offcourse even legally they will have to defend. I am sure this limit of 56kmph would have been fixed with proper study/scientifically analyzing, keeping cost in mind, etc., If voluntarily it is changed, there is no end, it can go to 70, 80, 100, etc. We need not reinvent the wheel all over again. We can also go with global standards. For implementing any legal regulations one of the parameter that Govts use is global standards. But interesting point is why they stopped at 64kmph, may be none of the small cars will survive at a speed of 80 or above. 2. But I am more interested to understand efforts around 56kmph test put by Indian manufacturers. 3. Just a frontal crash test at little higher speed does not change whole vehicle unsafe. I am sure these 56kmph requirements would be more comprehensive. So, making that benchmark and compliance around that stronger is need of the hour and not just NCAP. 4. Other important item is even other manufacturers who are perceived to be safer car manufacturers do differently in India. For example Ford. I read in news, export version of Ford ecosport had 300+ parts different from domestic version in India, including those of structure related. I am more interested to make sure whatever legal standards that are in place in other larger countries that make them to improve those parts are implemented here also. 5. Another important point is some of the vehicles of Maruti, I am sure won't pass even at 40kmph (ex, Omni). But many people who buy this know the fact/understand the fact while driving but keep the utility in mind which it offer the best. So that is at their risk. But other normal cars should be put to a rigorous 56kmph test. 6. I dont think he told 60+ is not possible or that Maruti wont be driven on highways. I understand 56kmph or 64kmph is at the time of impact which is completely different than driving speed.
