The first accident of the Tata Nexon facelift has been reported. Unfortunately, this took place on the same day the owner took the delivery. The Nexon maintains its dominance in the compact SUV category with its sales. The reasons are its attractive design, sturdy construction, remarkable safety record, and contemporary features, all of which greatly contribute to its broad popularity. Note that the last-gen model scored a 5-star safety rating at the Global NCAP. The existing model is yet to undergo the safety test. Since the platform is the same, the hopes for a decent rating are high.

First Tata Nexon Facelift Accident
This video comes from Nikhil Rana on YouTube. This channel features content around the performances of cars during undesirable situations, as well as road safety. On this occasion, a rather sad case has emerged where the Nexon facelift met with a minor accident on the day of its delivery. As per the information in the video, the Nexon owner was travelling in the parking lot around his home. Perhaps, he wanted to park the car in an empty space. He suddenly applies the brakes as soon as he comes across the empty space. Unfortunately, an MG Astor behind the Nexon couldn’t stop on time.

Resultantly, the Astor collided with the Nexon from behind. The impact was not too strong. That is the reason why the damage on both cars is also not severe. The bumper and bootlid of the Nexon are somewhat affected. Similarly, the front bumper of the Astor has sustained minor scratches. In any case, this is an unfortunate incident which happened due to the slight carelessness of the Astor driver. He was probably not looking in front and didn’t notice the Nexon stopping.
