I have been wondering, MS is known to have failed the crash test many a time and scored very less many a time. On different other posts on this forum too, I have noticed the crash test results being discussed. How have we missed discussing the same for Vitara Brezza? What was the performance of Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza in its crash test?

Then you might be surprised to know that Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza scored a 4-star rating on its crash test.
I guess everything is capable of improvement and I am sure Maruti Suzuki would also have taken its past performance very seriously. If MS has been able to reach a 4-star rating, I don't think its far from a 5 star rated car.

I agree with @Rangerr. Crash-test ratings form an important decision criterion while making a purchase. I am sure that Maruti Suzuki would have taken it seriously when the initial crash tests failed and when they couldn't totally remodel a car that scored low on crash tests, they would have surely taken it into consideration for the new cars it was building.
Here's a video of the crash test for this particular car.

I've attached a detailed report of the crash test from the NCAP website.
The car has two airbags. Its bodyshell is stable. Adult protection is good but child protection could be improved.

These are the detailed results based on the Global NCAP tests

ADULT OCCUPANT:
The protection offered to the driver and passenger head and neck was good. Driver’s chest showed marginal protection while the passenger’s chest showed good protection. Driver’s knees showed marginal protection and passenger’s knees marginal and good protection as they could impact with dangerous structures behind the dashboard supported by the Tranfascia tube. The bodyshell was rated as stable and it was capable of withstanding further loadings. The car offers standard sBR for driver and standard ABS.
CHILD OCCUPANT
The child seat for the 3-year-old was installed FWF with ISOFIX and top tether and was able to prevent excessive forward movement
during the impact with good protection for the head while marginal protection to the chest. The 18-month-old CRs was installed
with ISOFIX and top tether forward facing which explains the loss of head points, it showed poor protection for the head and limited
protection for the chest. The recommended CRSs did not show incompatibility. The vehicle offers standard ISOFIX and top tether
anchorages in the 2 outboard rear seats and does not offer 3 point belts in all seating positions.
