The adult safety score of the XUV700 lags behind that of the Tata Punch, Altroz, Nexon and Mahindra XUV300. However, the XUV700’s child safety score is the best ever for any made-in-India car.

The XUV700’s ADAS features like automatic emergency braking, forward collision warning, lane departure warning, lane keep assist and a 360-degree camera are the other features that will also help the car avoid a crash in the first place. However, it’s good to know that even the lower variants without these features will do well in the event of a crash. The GNCAP tested variant was one of the more affordable ones without the ADAS features.
