Safety is a big concern for cars, and while for the developed car markets the auto makers are mandated to offer highly safe vehicles, for the developing car markets they often tend to offer poorly built and equipped cars. However, this has been slowly changing over the past few years, as the emerging car markets including India are coming up with stricter safety rules. Moreover, the modern car buyers are much more safety and quality conscious nowadays and they look for cars with high safety and security features. Crash test results or safety ratings for the new cars by the international bodies thus, form a part of big news in the automotive world, as the prospective buyers are always eager to know about the safety ratings of the cars that they intend to buy. All these facts have ensured that the auto majors across the world heighten their focus on making their offerings sturdier and safer.
