Other cars that received a zero rating were Renault Kwid, Mahindra Scorpio and Hyundai Eon.

Shares of Maruti were last traded at Rs 3863, down 2 per cent over the previous close.

There were worries that poor crash tests would mean a damage to exports from the company.

However, Maruti has a very dominant share of the domestic market and has been growing the same aggressively.

Over the last few years, it has introduced a number of models to boost market share in the country.

However, a negative report may also damage sale in the domestic market, as customers have become increasingly safety conscious.

Maruti continues to be the largest passenger car in the country, though Hyundai and now Tata Motors plan to gain market share with aggressively priced models and better offerings.
