While the Hyundai Creta has secured a 3-star rating from the Global NCAP, the Skoda Kushaq is yet to be tested by the not-for-profit organization.
The hot-selling Hyundai Creta was recently awarded a proper 3-star safety rating by Global NCAP. While this didn’t surprise us due to the extensive parts it shared with the 3-star Kia Seltos, there were some who were disappointed with the normal score. On the other hand, the Skoda Kushaq, which is based on the India-specific MQB-A0-IN platform, has received mixed opinions from several owners. While many have praised its solid build quality, others have been vocal about it not being as well-built car as the previous generation of koda. We can’t have the final word on the Kushak’s build quality until it’s evaluated by the NCAP. However, a recent incident presents some interesting sightings.

Skoda Kushak and Hyundai Creta face to face collision
The Hyundai Creta has been a favorite of the segment since time immemorial. On the other hand, the Czech carmaker’s first made-for-India offering has received a good response from the buyers. Many have appreciated the Kushak’s clean looks, powerful yet efficient petrol engine and good maneuverability. Also, many owners feel that their C-SUV feels ‘safer’ than the best selling rival. At the same time, Skoda Kushak is yet to be tested by NCAP and till then, one cannot be sure about its crashworthiness. Despite this, there are some interesting sights to be seen in an accident in Delhi-NCR.

The video above shows a scene after a head-on collision between a Hyundai Creta and a Skoda Kushaq Monte Carlo. As can be seen, both the vehicles have suffered similar damages. The entire front-end of both the SUVs has been raised in a similar manner. In both cases, the impact did not penetrate the cabin and the airbags were deployed. Fortunately, no casualties/serious injuries have been reported in this incident. But due to the same amount of damage in both the vehicles, many Skoda customers question the build quality of the Kushaq. Nevertheless, one should not draw conclusions based only on a few photos and videos. There is much more that decides the outcome of any collision – speed, angle of impact, momentum, etc.

Skoda Kushaq yet to be tested by G-NCAP
And it is precisely for this reason that we cannot be sure of the crashability of the Skoda Kushk until it is tested by Global NCAP. For now, we are happy that both the C-SUVs have managed to keep their respective passengers safe. In both the vehicles the impact has been stopped from penetrating the cabin. After all, the ultimate purpose of the crumple zone is to protect the occupants, not the sheetmetal. And the same has happened in the case of the Hyundai Creta as well as the Skoda Kushak.
