Four safety stars for Tata Nexon

Auto Today - - Update! -

SAFETY IS of­ten a prime con­cern for the in­formed buyer. That is per­haps the rea­son why more and more car­mak­ers are stan­dar­d­is­ing safety fea­tures like airbags in newer cars. In keep­ing with the trend, Tata Motors an­nounced that the re­cently-launched Nexon has been cer­ti­fied with a 4-star rat­ing by Global NCAP. Ac­cord­ing to Global NCAP, the Nexon achieved the high­est adult safety score (13.56/17.00) amongst all the mod­els tested across the In­dian mar­ket. With this ‘Level Nex’ per­for­mance, the car has also re­ceived high rat­ing for ‘Child Pro­tec­tion.’ So what makes Nexon safe? Ac­cord­ing to the com­pany, the en­ergy-ab­sorb­ing body struc­ture with high-strength steel con­struc­tion and crit­i­cal re­in­force­ments ef­fec­tively ab­sorb the im­pact en­ergy and pro­vide a sta­ble load-path for pro­tect­ing the pas­sen­ger com­part­ment from de­for­ma­tion. For driver and pas­sen­ger safety, the Nexon has dual-frontal airbags and seat belts with pre-ten­sioner, load-lim­iter and crash-lock­ing tongue which pre­vents the un­con­trolled for­ward move­ment.
