Car manufacturers in India have significantly improved the safety features of their vehicles, especially in terms of airbags and crash test ratings. Many models now come with better safety standards, including six airbags. Here is a list of some affordable cars in India that come with six airbags, either as a standard feature or as an option:
Maruti Suzuki Baleno
The Baleno offers two airbags as standard, but you can opt for six airbags starting from the Zeta Petrol MT variant, priced at Rs. 8.38 lakh. It comes in four variants: Sigma, Delta, Zeta, and Alpha, and also has a CNG option.
The i20 facelift introduced six airbags as a standard feature across all variants, with prices starting at Rs. 7 lakh for the Era 1.2 Petrol MT variant. The 2023 i20 model no longer offers the 1.0-litre turbo-petrol engine.
The Hyundai Aura, a sub-four-metre sedan, now comes with six airbags as a standard offering, starting from the entry-level variant called E 1.2 Petrol MT, priced from Rs. 6.44 lakh onwards.
The Exter B-SUV, which competes with Tata Punch and Citroen C3, comes equipped with six airbags across all variants from its launch. It starts at Rs. 6 lakh for the base-spec EX 1.2 Petrol MT variant and is available in five variants and nine color options.
