The Tata Nexon is one of the safest vehicles you can buy in India under Rs 15 lakhs. Check out this video of two accident which showcases the Nexon's brilliant build quality.
The Tata Nexon is a great choice if you’re planning to buy a sub-compact SUV but do not want to buy the Maruti Vitara Brezza or the Hyundai Venue. The Nexon comes loaded to the brim with features and creature comforts, engine choice flexibility, class-leading safety features, a spacious cabin with great build quality, and attractive prices. The sub-compact SUV also received a mid-life facelift last year that gave the Nexon a redesigned front-end and added more up-to-date features. Consumers reacted positively to the redesign, leading to the Nexon posting its best-ever sales. Today we came across these two similar accidents of the Nexon which suffered only minor damages.
The video has been uploaded by Nikhil Rana over on YouTube, in which we can these two similar crashes of the Tata Nexon crashing through a wall. In the first part of the video, we see the aftermath of a white Nexon ramming through a wall. The vehicle is brand new and doesn’t even have number plates on. Fortunately, the Nexon suffers only minimal damages to the front right fender and the bonnet.
The second accident is very similar as well, and it happened while learning to drive in a college field. In this crash the Nexon suffers more damage, with the bonnet being crumpled, front bumper damaged, ORVMs broken and the windshield is shattered. Luckily, the occupants managed to get out with minor injuries only. Both these accidents showcase why a safe and sturdy vehicle can sometimes save your life. The Nexon is currently one of the safest cars you can buy in India for under Rs 15 lakh. In fact, it was the first Indian vehicle to score the full 5-star crash test safety rating in adult protection from Global NCAP.
The Tata Nexon is available in two engine options, a 1.2-litre turbo petrol which churns out peak figures of 120 PS/ 170, or a 1.5-litre turbo-diesel which makes 110 PS/260 Nm of max figures. Both engines can be paired with either a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed AMT. Prices for the new facelifted model starts from Rs 7 lakh, with the top trim coming in at Rs 12.79 lakh.
