Meanwhile, Tata Motors today also announced another feat achieved by its much loved compact SUV, the Tata Nexon. The car has established a new benchmark in terms of car safety in India as it has been awarded with a full 5-star adult safety rating by Global NCAP, an internationally renowned safety accreditation body.
The Nexon’s structural integrity and overall safety has been evaluated in Global NCAP crash test. The car has been tested for both front and side impacts. The combined evaluation of both the tests by Global NCAP have resulted in a full 5-stars rating, the highest adult occupant safety score of (16.06/17.00) amongst all the models tested across the Indian market. Nexon has also achieved an impressive 3-star rating for Child occupant safety. With this achievement, the Nexon is the first and only car in India to receive this rating.
Fully designed, engineered and made in India, this achievement puts India on the global map and is a precursor to Tata Motors’ active role in advancing vehicle safety technologies. This has been possible by state-of-the-art digital simulation techniques and numerous safety related tests, leveraging the Company’s decades of experience.
Features, which provide an all-round safety in the Nexon:
The Energy-absorbing body structure with high-strength steel construction and critical reinforcements, effectively absorb the impact energy and provide a stable load-path for protecting the passenger compartment from deformation. For driver & passenger safety, the Nexon comes equipped with dual-frontal airbags and seatbelts with pre-tensioner, load-limiter & crash-locking tongue (CLT for driver occupant) which prevents the uncontrolled forward movement of the occupant and avoids injuries. The driver foot-well area is also reinforced with pedal blockers to prevent the feet injuries in the event of an unfortunate crash.
In addition to the structural integrity, Nexon hosts a range of safety features such as ABS with EBD and corner stability control as standard offering, Child-safety door locks, Voice-based alerts, rear parking assistance and Front fog lamps with cornering assistance, which ensure an all-round safety while driving on the road.
ISOFIX anchorage for child seat and front co-passenger seat belt reminder come as a standard offering. All the variants of Nexon comply with the Global NCAP safety results (5-star: Adult occupant safety | 3-star: Child occupant safety)
Prior to this feat, the Nexon had been awarded a 4-star rating by Global NCAP in Aug’18, and through quick engineering & technological improvements it has surpassed its own benchmark and achieved the full 5-star rating within 3 months. With this ‘LEVEL NEX’ performance, the Nexon has once again set a new benchmark for safety in India.
