Tata Nexon rolls over twice after its driver loses the control. However, he walks out of the car without no injuries whatsoever. Read more about the incident here.
Tata Nexon is quite fancied by the Indian audience for the safety rating it boasts of and the way it looks. In its facelifted avatar, it gives a miss to the bulbous headlamp units for a set of sleek headlamps. Also, it gets a longer list of features now. But, it continues to do with a 5-star Global-NCAP crash test rating, which was a case with the pre-facelift model as well. Tata Nexon has proved of its strong build quality in the accidents by keeping the occupants away from injury. We recently came across a set of pictures, where a Tata Nexon turned turtle after its driver lost the control on the car.
This incident took place somewhere in Bihar. The driver of the car walked out of the accident with no injuries at all, although, the car overturned twice. Talking of the Nexon’s safety features, it comes loaded with a lot of safety equipment.
