Nexon from Tata Motors has become the first made in India, sold in India car to
achieve Global NCAP’s coveted five star crash test rating. The Mahindra Marazzo
from Mahindra & Mahindra achieved a four star result.
two results were the latest updates from Global NCAP of its #SaferCarsForIndia
campaign. The Tata Nexon had recently got a four star safety rating and now has
become the first Indian car to be in the coveted 5 star rated safety club.
Tata Nexon scored five stars for Adult Occupant Protection and three stars for
Child Occupant Protection. Following the Nexon’s four star result earlier this
year, Tata has improved a number of safety features including making a Seat
Belt Reminder (SBR) for driver and passenger a standard for all variants of the
model. In addition the Nexon was required to pass a side impact test meeting
UN95 side impact protection requirements.
Mahindra Marazzo with standard double airbags, ABS, SBR for driver and ISOFIX
anchorages, reached four stars in Adult Occupant Protection and two stars for
Child Occupant Protection. This Mahindra MPV offers good protection for both
adult head and neck, marginal protection for the driver chest and adequate
protection for passenger chest. The pedals showed some risk for the lower legs
due to their displacement. The 18 month old child dummy received good
protection while the 3 year old child passenger showed high readings in chest
and head exposure.
Ward, Global NCAP Secretary General said, “This is a huge landmark for car
safety in India. Congratulations to Tata Motors for achieving India’s first
five star rating for adult occupant protection. Congratulations also to
Mahindra for their first four star result. The Nexon was engineered in India
and this shows the huge capability of the domestic industry to achieve
excellence in safety design and performance. With the Nexon, Tata have shown
the global car industry that to achieve five stars you can ‘Make in India’.
Global NCAP is looking forward to many more Indian five star cars and further improvements
in both pedestrian protection and crash avoidance.”
