Tata Nexon subcompact sub 4-metre SUV has secured four-star ratings overall at the Global NCAP (New Car Assessment Programme) crash test. Showing a positive trend in the Indian auto industry, the SUV received a four Star rating for adult occupant safety and a three star rating for child occupant safety. The NCAP test was carried out at the ADAC test facility in Munich, Germany and was a standard offset front impact test at 64 kmph. Looking at the encouraging test results, NCAP has officially termed the test 'stable'.
Commenting on the positive 4 Star NCAP rating for the Tata Nexon crash test, Mayank Pareek, President of Tata Motors' Passenger Vehicles Business Unit said, "With these test results, the Nexon is India's safest sub 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."
In terms of safety features, the Tata Nexon comes with dual airbags as standard across the range on all variants - both petrol and diesel and both manual and AMT automatic too. The sub 4-metre SUV also gets seat belts with pre tensioners, ISOFIX child seat anchorage points and ABS as standard across the entire range. Talking about the test results, it showcased that the main brunt of the damage was borne by the engine bay area and the crumple zones of the Tata Nexon behaved the way they were designed thereby reducing any lethal intrusions into the passenger area, while allowing the front doors to be operable post the crash, the A-Pillar too retained its structural integrity.
