The Tata Nexon has cemented its reputation as the safest sub-4m SUV in India by securing a phenomenal 5-star rating from Global NCAP in its recent crash tests. This achievement is even more impressive considering the updated, stricter test protocols employed by the global agency.

Unpacking the Impressive Scores:

  • Adult Occupant Protection: The Nexon facelift scored 32.22 out of 34 points, demonstrating good overall protection for front occupants in both frontal and side impact tests. Standard six airbags further enhance safety.
  • Child Occupant Protection: With a score of 44.52 out of 49 points, the Nexon excels in safeguarding children. Rearward-facing child seats offered adequate protection, and both car seats performed well in side impact tests.

More Than Just Impressive Numbers:

Global NCAP acknowledged the Nexon’s standard safety features like 3-point seatbelts for all passengers and a front passenger deactivation switch, contributing to its stellar performance. The presence of Electronic Stability Control (ESC) and seatbelt reminders adds another layer of protection.

Looking Ahead: What’s Next for the Nexon?

While the Nexon reigns supreme in its segment, further advancements are possible. Integrating advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS) could elevate its safety quotient even higher. Additionally, anticipation builds for the all-electric Nexon EV’s performance in future crash tests under Bharat NCAP.

Competitive Landscape:

The Nexon stands out with its 5-star rating, exceeding its rivals like the Hyundai Venue, Kia Sonet, Mahindra XUV300, Renault Kiger, and Nissan Magnite, none of which have achieved similar scores under the latest Global NCAP protocols.
