The Nexon is proof that Tata Motors is taking crash safety seriously on its new generation models.
Tata’s compact SUV, the Nexon, was recently put through Global NCAP’s stringent crash safety testing procedure, and the car ended up scoring a solid overall rating of 4 out of 5 stars.
The Nexon, which is sold with dual front airbags, frontal double pretensioners, ABS and ISOFIX child seat mounts as standard, achieved a strong four-star rating for adult occupant protection and three stars for child occupant protection.
Global NCAP termed the Nexon’s head and neck of driver and passenger as ‘good’, whereas chest protection was termed as ‘adequate’. Furthermore, NCAP states that the Nexon’s structure was stable at 64km/h.
David Ward, Secretary General of Global NCAP said, 'The 4 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 5-star car!'
The Nexon was tested under Global NCAP’s #SaferCarsForIndia campaign. This campaign was launched in 2014 with the objective of promoting safer vehicles in the country and the establishment of a Bharat NCAP Programme. Between 2014 and 2017, Global NCAP has crash-tested 25 cars sold in India, which has been an important catalyst in the improved standards of safety on Indian cars.
