Сrossover Tata checked crash-test Global NKAPAugust 8, 2018
In September last year, Indian company Tata Motors Limited brought to the home market a compact crossover Nexon, which received a very “tasty price and economical turbo-motors.” Since then, almost a year has passed and the model went on the crash test of Global NCAP.
And I must say that the crash test compact crossed it worthy: the model earned 13.56 points out of 17 possible, which is the highest index among all tested models in the Indian market, and this despite the fact that the car is equipped with only front airbags.
Experts of the organization evaluated the ability of the cross to protect the head, legs and feet of the dummy with “good”, an assessment “adequately” was made with regard to the protection of the chest. Worse things are with the knees that can hit the front console, although in general the car has retained structural integrity. On the whole – a good result and a solid four stars.
Do not hit the dirt in the face and technology that was used to protect children – in the first place we are talking about the ISOFIX child seat anchorages. In this rating, the cross scored 25 points out of 49 – these are three stars.
It is worth noting that before the crash test Global NCAP failed models Renault Kwid, Maruti Suzuki Celerio, Maruti Suzuki Eeco, Mahindra Scorpio and Hyundai Eon, which scored 0 points.
At the moment, Tata is not going to sell this model in other countries, but, judging by the crash test, it could well appear in our market, especially since in India it costs 599 000 rupees in the version with a gasoline turbo engine with a capacity of 1.2 liters capacity of 110 forces and a six-speed manual transmission.
