Nexon, the hot-selling compact SUV from Tata Motors, brings more glory to the car maker by scoring a brilliant 4-star Global NCAP rating!
The Nexon is the latest entrant into the Tata Motors product line up. It is also an SUV that has sprinted to success by amassing humongous sales figures within a relatively short span of time. Amidst the surging sales of themanual and the recently introduced HyprDrive AMT models, Nexon has now hit the news once again by getting certified with a magnificent 4 Star safety rating by Global NCAP, and by achieving the highest adult safety score (13.56/17.00) among all the models tested across the Indian market.
Thus the most awarded SUV has now been proved to offer ‘LEVEL NEX’ safety and has also set benchmark for safety in India. The Nexon has also received high rating for “Child Protection” as per the safety test conducted by Global NCAP.
Just for any possible ignorant , the Global New Car Assessment Programme (Global NCAP) certification is regarded as the global benchmark for evaluating the car safety of newly introduced models.
How has the Nexon managed to be so safe?
Well, the prime credit goes to the energy-absorbing body structure with high-strength steel construction and critical reinforcements, that effectively absorb the impact energy and provide a stable load path for protecting the passenger compartment from deformation.
The SUV also gets a bunch of safety features for the driver and passenger that help secure their lives and save injuries in the event of a crash. Dual frontal airbags, seatbelts equipped with pretensioners, load limiter and crash-locking tongue are a few to give special mention here. In case of a crash, the driver footwell area also boasts pedal blockers that would prevent feet injuries to a great extent.
Basic safety features like ABS, EBD are standard offerings across the range and there are also goodies like ISOFIX anchorage for child-seat, Child-safety door locks, Voice-based alerts and Front fog lamps with cornering assistance for added safety on the roads!
Speaking about the achievement, 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.”
