In the first set of
#SaferCarsForIndia results for 2018, Global NCAP has announced that the Tata Nexon
has been certified with a 4-star rating. The Tata Nexon, which is sold in its
standard version with frontal double airbags, frontal double pretensioners, ABS
brakes and Isofix anchorages, achieved a strong result of four stars for adult
occupant protection and three stars for child occupant protection.
Tata Motors released the Nexon
with safety features that can offer four star adult occupant protection with
good protection for head and neck of driver and passenger and adequate
protection for their chests with a stable structure at 64km.h off set
deformable barrier crash test.
The ISOFIX anchorages with
ISOFIX Child Restraint Systems (CRS) made available by Tata, helped the model
to achieve three stars for child occupant protection. The rearward facing CRS
installed with ISOFIX anchorages showed good protection to the 18 months old
child, while the ISOFIX forwards facing installed CRS offered good protection
for head and limited protection to the chest.
David Ward, Secretary General
of Global NCAP said: “The 4 stars awarded to the Tata Nexon represent a very
strong result from a major Indian car manufacturer. This impressive safety
performance is comfortably above the new crash test standards applied in India
to new models since October 2017. It is very encouraging to see Tata aiming
high for safety and a great example for others to follow. The race is clearly
on for India’s first 5 star car! ”
Mayank Pareek, President –
PVBU, Tata Motors, said, “The Global NCAP results are a reflection of our
commitment towards bringing technologically advanced features which are safe yet
stylish. With these test results, the Nexon is India's safest compact SUV,
after being one of the most awarded models from the Tata Motors’ PV stable. It
is a proud moment for all our Nexon customers today. I am delighted and proud
of the hard-work put in by the entire team and congratulate each one for this
accomplishment. Our journey to offer
best quality products continues."
