Driving a car is no easy task that requires so much attention, not only at the front of you but also behind your back.

The one-year-old Nexon facelift was driving on the highways when a full-size truck sudden came and hit on the back of the Tata car. As you can see from the video, the front bumper of the truck has been damaged with the metal bumper even being twisted at one side. In the meantime, we hardly see any heavy damage for the Tata Nexon. The sub-four-metre SUV has got a smaller impact and come out bravely after the mishap. Again, this proves how strong Nexon’s build quality really is that’s certainly worth huge applause.
One can’t deny that Tata Nexon is a safe car. It was the first car in India to be awarded 5 stars from the Global NCAP safety tests, giving its name into the list of the safest cars in India. What helps the Tata Nexon gains this brilliant rating are a solid structure and some certain safety features offered as standard across the variant lineup. Tata Nexon has been proving its excellent safety prowess through various incidents, both small and serious ones. That said, this accident is no exception.
The latest avatar of the Tata Nexon was launched earlier this year with some cosmetic changes, additional features and mechanical upgrade. Tata Nexon receives a wide range of safety features such as dual front airbags, ABS, EBD and CSC, front seatbelt reminders, rear parking sensors, seatbelts with pre-tensioners and load limiters, etc. as standard options.
The compact SUV gets a 1.2-litre turbocharged petrol engine and a 1.5-litre turbo diesel motor under the bonnet, churning out 120 PS/ 170 Nm and 110 PS/ 260 Nm of torque output, respectively. Transmission choices for the Tata Nexon include a 6-speed MT and a 6-speed AMT unit. Currently, the Tata Nexon is priced in the range of Rs 6.94 – 12.69 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).
