The Renault Lodgy, Chevrolet Enjoy, and Maruti Suzuki Eeco had all failed their respective tests. The Honda Mobilio had also previously received zero stars, but a subsequent retest with dual airbags being made standard had resulted in a 3 star rating.

Global NCAP had the car shipped in from India a few days earlier. And it underwent a frontal offset crash test at 64 kmph - the Global NCAP test protocol - at the ADAC crash test lab near Munich, Germany. This is more stringent than the new crash norms being implemented by the Indian government, which will see cars needing a 56 kmph test. At first glance, the Marazzo appeared to have done well. Good structural integrity was visually evident, due to the lack of any deforming of the A-pillar and of any perceptible intrusions into the cabin. The analysis that was carried out in the subsequent days, presented the strong result.
