Tata Nexon has established a new benchmark in terms of car safety in India as it has been awarded with a full 5-star adult safety rating by Global NCAP, an internationally renowned safety accreditation body. Prior to this feat, the Nexon had been awarded a 4-star rating by Global NCAP in Aug’18, and through quick engineering & technological improvements it has surpassed its own benchmark and achieved the full 5-star rating within 3 months.
The Nexon’s structural integrity and overall safety has been evaluated in Global NCAP crash test and the car has been tested for both front and side impacts. The combined evaluation of both the tests by Global NCAP have resulted in a full 5-stars rating, the highest adult occupant safety score of (16.06/17.00) amongst all the models tested across the Indian market. Nexon has also achieved a 3-star rating for Child occupant safety.
Fully designed, engineered and made in India, Nexon has an energy-absorbing body structure with high-strength steel construction and critical reinforcements, that effectively absorbs the impact energy and provides a stable load-path for protecting the passenger compartment from deformation. Minute details of form, joinery, profile, material have gone through vigorous testing, using advanced digital simulation techniques and numerous safety drills.
For driver & passenger safety, the Nexon comes equipped with dual-frontal airbags and seat belts with pre-tensioner, load-limiter & crash-locking tongue (CLT for driver occupant) which prevents the uncontrolled forward movement of the occupant and avoids injuries. The driver foot-well area is also reinforced with pedal blockers to prevent the feet injuries in the event of an unfortunate crash.
In addition to the structural integrity, Nexon hosts a range of safety features such as ABS with EBD and corner stability control as standard offering, child-safety door locks, voice-based alerts, rear parking assistance and front fog lamps with cornering assistance, which ensure an all-round safety while driving on the road. ISOFIX anchorage for child seat and front co-passenger seat belt reminder come as a standard offering.
All the variants of Nexon comply with the Global NCAP safety results. Read more Latest News Blog
