Tata Motors has added a big feather to their cap with the Tata Nexon. The Nexon has scored four stars in the Global NCAP safety tests. It gets a four star rating for the adult occupant and three star rating for the child occupant.
The crash test was carried out at a speed of 64 kph. The report says that the Nexon has good protection for the neck and head of the driver and passenger. The three star rating for the child occupant is thanks to the rearward facing Isofix Child Restraint Systems (CRS).
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.”
All variants of the Tata Nexon from the base XE to the range topping XZ+ feature ABS and dual airbags as standard.
The Nexon is available in petrol an diesel variants with the choice of a manual and AMT gearboxes.
Mr. Mayank Pareek, President – PVBU, Tata Motors, said, “The Global NCAP results are a reflection of our commitment towards bringing technologically advanced features which are safe yet stylish. 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. I am delighted and proud of the hard-work put in by the entire team and congratulate each one for this accomplishment. Our journey to offer best quality products continues.”
Tata Motors had earlier scored a four safety rating at the Global NCAP tests for the Zest compact sedan in 2016.
