Neelgai Tests Build Quality of Tata Harrier

Whats happens when a Neelgai decides to test the build quality of a Tata Harrier? The results are not pretty.

Tata Motors is known for making rugged and sturdy products. The company’s most famous vehicles have received quite high GNCAP safety ratings. In a freak accident, a Neelgai also decided to check the build quality of a Black Tata Harrier. The unfortunate incident heavily damaged the vehicle. It seems the animal targeted the right side of the vehicle. Both side doors and side body panels are severely dented, with the rear door taking the most damage. The front windshield was also safe from the Neelgai. There are dents in the front also (above the wheel). Fortunately, there seems to be no damage to the inside or passengers.
