The Global NCAP has released the crash test scores for the Tata Nexon. The Tata Nexon obtains four stars rating in the Global NCAP test. The Tata Nexon gets four stars for adult occupant protection and gets three stars for the child occupant protection. Tata Motors has engineered the compact SUV with standard safety features. The Tata Nexon compact SUV is on sale with dual frontal airbags, ISOFIX anchorages, anti braking system [ABS] and frontal double pretensioners.
The Tata Nexon offers addequate protection for the head and neck of the driver and the passengers as well. Besides that the car also offers a sufficient chest protection for the occupants with a stable structure at 64 kmph off set deformable barrier crash test as per NCAP protocol. Moreover, the reward facing Child Restraint Systems [CRS] offers good protection to the 18 months old child while the ISOFIX forward facing seat ensures sufficient protection of the head and limited protection of the chest of the elder child in the rear seat. Mayank Pareek, President of Tata Motors’ Passenger Vehicles Business Unit said, “With these test results, the Nexon is India’s safest compact SUV, after being one of the most awarded models from the Tata Motors’ PV stable. It is a proud moment for all our Nexon customers today. Our journey to offer best quality products continues.”
Speaking about the Nexon’s performance in the crash tests, David Ward, secretary general of Global NCAP, said, “The four stars awarded to the Tata Nexon represent a very strong result from a major Indian car manufacturer. This impressive safety performance is comfortably above the new crash test standards applied in India to new models since October 2017. It is very encouraging to see Tata aiming high for safety and a great example for others to follow. The race is clearly on for India’s first five-star car.”
Rohit Baluja, president of the Institute of Road Traffic Education (IRTE) also talking about the Nexon’s rating said, “I wish to congratulate Tata on this very good result. It shows that ‘Made in India’ and high levels of safety go together well. With excellent efforts like this from Tata and the new crash test standards now applied by the Indian Government we are going to see a steady improvement in the safety of new cars across the country and this will help to make our roads safer.”
