The Tata Nexon became the first sub-compact SUV to get awarded the full 5-star adult protection rating from Global NCAP. A top score aside, the Nexon has time and again proved its mettle by keeping the occupants safe in life-threatening crashes. However, every once in a while a case of a Tata Nexon accident comes to light that once again reminds us of the great level of safety that this car provides. Today, we have visuals from an incident that took place in Kerala. The point to note here is that the vehicle involved in this crash slipped off the road and landed on its nose. Unsurprisingly, however, it kept everyone totally safe.
As revealed through the video above, this Tata Nexon belongs to one Vishak N.C. who produces and acts in short films. He was recently travelling from his outstation office towards the city with three of his colleagues and his driver, who was, of course, behind the wheel. The Nexon was being driven in heavy rain. In fact, the condition was so bad that the authorities had issued an orange alert for the bad weather on the day of this mishap. All the rain had led to pretty slippery conditions on the road and in the process of avoiding a pothole, the driver lost control as the Nexon slid on a muddy patch.
The Tata Nexon then drove off the road and landed flat on its nose near a house a few feet below the road. The visuals we have with us show the car resting near perpendicularly in front of a house. The owner goes on to say for a moment he felt he and the other occupants would die but the great crash safety that this Nexon provides kept everyone safe. The driver, Vishak and his two colleagues could get out of the car totally scratchless. The third occupant in the rear suffered some spinal injury but has been discharged from the hospital.
So, the Tata Nexon has once again proved to be an ultra-safe car and has managed to protect its occupants in a horrifying crash. For the uninitiated, the Nexon rivals a slew of sub-compact SUVs, including Maruti Vitara Brezza, Hyundai Venue, Kia Sonet, Nissan Magnite, Renault Kiger and Mahindra XUV300. Except for the baby-XUV, no other car in this segment has managed to score full 5-star rating in this segment, which alone goes on to show the robustness of this vehicle.
