Tata Nexon encounters multiple tyre burst at once and resultantly flies off the road into a gorge. However, the car absorbs the impact to keep all of its occupants safe.
In the recent times, the Nexon and Altroz have scored a 5-star Global NCAP crash test rating, while the Tiago and Tigor have scored a 4-star crash test ratings. For the same reason, Tata Motors is highly appreciated among the Indian car buyers for making safe cars. So much so, that Tata car owners always post pictures of their accidental cars to let others know how safe their machines have kept them in such mishaps. We came across such another such post on social media recently and thought of sharing it with you folks. The pictures were posted by a Rourkela resident, Naveen Sahu. The incident took place when two of the car’s ttyres burst and the driver lost control over the car. The car eventually flew off the road into a gorge. However, all the passengers in the car emerged out of the unfortunate incident without any injuries.
Tata Nexon was the first car from the Indian manufacturer to score 5-star Global NCAP crash test rating.
After the mishap took place, the owner of the car thanked Tata motors for their superior build quality. The accident also showcases the value of crash test rating, which are generally ignored by the Indian car buyers. Helping the Nexon attain its 5-star Global NCAP crash test rating is its high-strength steel structure and a plethora of electronic gadges such as traction control, roll-over mitigation, emergency brake assist, hill hold control, electronic brake disc wiping, and brake pre-fill. These features, however, are available only in the higher variants, but ABS with EBD, dual-front airbags, reverse parking sensors, seat belt alerts, and high-speed warning alerts are standard fitments across the range.
Tata Nexon has been recently updated with the new power figure of 120 PS.
Apart from being safe, Tata Nexon is also a powerful car. It comes with 2 engine options. There is a 1.2L turbocharged petrol motor on offer, which produces a peak power output of 120PS and a max. the torque of 170Nm, while the other engine option available with the Nexon is a 1.5L 4-cylinder turbo-diesel unit. It is capable of belting out 110PS and 260Nm at its peak power and torque output, respectively.
The Nexon has recently received a facelift and with the nose-job, it looks bolder than ever. With a starting price of Rs. 6.95 lakh, the Nexon is priced aggressively to take on the likes of Mahindra XUV300, Hyundai Creta, Maruti Vitara Brezza, and Ford Ecosport.
