He was at a speed of 70 to 80 kmph when the EcoSport driver suddenly pushed the brake pedal, and Altroz driver could not apply brakes at that time. In Tata Altroz, its bonnet has crumpled up. Moreover, the front bumper, grille and under-body cladding has also got affected. There were also a few dents and scratches on the side fender and front passenger door.

In comparison to Tata Altroz, the impact is less, but Ford will charge a good amount to replace the whole boot system. Tata Altroz owner had Zero-dep insurance and had to pay a very little amount to get his car fixed. Ford EcoSport is among the most affordable cars to come with six airbags, on the top-spec trims. On the other hand, Tata Altroz comes with drive & passenger airbags as standard. It is offered at a starting price of Rs 5.43 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi) for the entry-level XE petrol trim and goes all the way up to Rs 9.09 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi) for the top-spec XZ Urban diesel variant.
