In the side impact, head, abdomen, and pelvis protection was good while chest protection was poor. 

In the frontal impact test for child occupant protection, there was no excessive forward movement and the car offered good protection to the head and marginal protection to the chest when the child seat for a 3-year-old was installed in the car. However, the tests after installing the seat for an 18-month-old found out that the car offers poor protection for the head and chest.

Conclusion

Since the guidelines for crash tests were recently applied by GNCAP, the previous scores received by these cars are no longer valid. Previously, Maruti Suzuki Swift had scored 2 stars at the GNCAP crash tests while the Ignis received 3 stars. Mahindra Scorpio-N was also one of the India-spec cars tested at GNCAP, and it received the highest possible 5-star rating.
