Here's a Tata Nexon that overturned and fell off the road at speeds in excess of 120 kmph while keeping everyone safe. Read about the complete incident here.
Tata Nexon is the first Indian-made car to score a 5-star crash test rating at Global NCAP's testbed. While the crash test rating has helped in keeping the occupants safe in various crashes, which were reported on the internet, but it seems like it has now turned into something that can be bragged about. Road accidents can be fatal. Therefore it is not advisable to drive carelessly or exceed the specified speed limit of the respective road. Things might go out of control in the blink of an eye. Something similar happened with a Tata Nexon owner when he lost control over the car while he was doing speeds northwards of 120 kmph. As a result, the Nexon overturned and fell off the road. This accident took place somewhere in Lakhimpur, Assam.
At the time of the mishap, there were a total of four occupants in the Nexon. Two of them walked out of it without any injuries, whatsoever, while the other two suffered from minor injuries. We came to know of this incident via a set of pictures, which were posted on a social media platform by the owner himself. Also, the owner explained that the speed of the car was above 120 kmph when the mishap took place. Understandably, Nexon is a great car when it comes to passenger safety, but that should not be the reason to drive beyond the defined speed limits of the road.
Talking of the safety equipment, the Nexon comes with dual-front airbags, rear parking camera with dynamic guidelines, ABS with EBD, corner stability control, roll-over mitigation, and hill-hold assist. Moreover, it gets electronic brake assist, brake disc wiping, fog lamps with cornering assistance, traction control, and ISOFIX child seat mounts. The Nexon is available with two engine options – 1.2L turbo-petrol and 1.5L turbo-diesel. The turbo-petrol is capable of producing 120 PS against 170 Nm, whereas the oil burner belts out 110 PS and 260 Nm. The transmission options on the Nexon include a 6-speed MT and 6-speed AMT. Prices for the Nexon start at Rs. 6.99 lakh and top out at Rs. 12.70 lakh.
