German carmaker offers some of the safest vehicles in our market which all started with the Polo.
In the latest crash, a container falls on the roof of the VW Polo. Polo is a 4-star safety-rated premium hatchback at the Global NCAP. It is no longer on sale in the country. However, the German carmaker makes it a point to offer the highest safety in its products. That could be seen with its latest offerings – Taigun and Virtus. Polo belonged to the last-gen products in VW’s portfolio. Nevertheless, it was still way ahead of its time in terms of performance and safety. Let us take a look at the details of this latest case.

Container Falls on VW Polo
This video comes from Prateek Singh on YouTube. This channel keeps featuring content around the performances of popular cars during unfortunate incidents, as well as road safety. On this occasion, a case has emerged from Rajkot, Gujarat. As per the information in the video, a container fell on the roof of the Polo. Additionally, the car might have also collided with the divider which is why the damages are present at the front. The exact reason for this crash is not clear. In any case, the impressive performance of the hatchback is there for everyone to see.

The ginormous container is on the top of the car. Still, the side pillars and roof have absorbed the impact incredibly well. There is no impact on the inside of the vehicle. That could be the reason why all passengers were absolutely safe. Sure, the car has sunk a little. But that is to be expected. Other damages include the front section and the rear bumper. That is due to the collision. This should serve as a testament to the build quality of the premium hatchback.
What We Think
We keep witnessing unbelievable incidents on our roads on a daily basis. Hence, we understand the relevance of having cars with high safety ratings. While that is not a substitute for rash driving and flouting traffic regulations, it is an insurance against any unforeseen circumstance. In India, the trend of making decisions based on the safety ratings of cars is on the rise. We must admit it is a welcome trend. With the launch of Bharat NCAP on October 1, carmakers will strive to achieve high scores to woo more customers. Overall, the safety on the roads will go up and we will, hopefully, lose fewer lives on roads each year.
