In a recent incident, a new Tata Nexon gets hit by a train at a railway crossing. Unfortunately, we keep witnessing such crashes relatively frequently. The Nexon continues to shine as a leading contender in the compact SUV segment. Its consistently impressive sales figures serve as a testament to its appeal. This enduring popularity can be attributed to its eye-catching design, robust build, remarkable safety track record, and up-to-date features. Notably, the earlier-generation model earned a stellar 5-star safety rating from the Global NCAP. While the current model is yet to undergo safety testing, the fact that it shares its platform with its predecessor raises expectations for another strong safety rating.

As far as the damage goes, the driver-side door panel has sustained deformation. It looks like the train driver had reduced the speed a lot. Therefore, the impact didn’t injure anyone. Apart from that, the other body parts of the Nexon are in perfect condition. Only the side profile has been affected. Still, it is quite an impressive performance. Not many cars would have survived such a collision against a train. We can only urge our readers to be extra careful around railway crossings.

What We Think
In our nation, we have thousands of unmanned railway crossings, and it’s truly disheartening to see many people regularly ignoring traffic rules.

Moreover, if you ever come across individuals engaging in dangerous behaviour on the roads that jeopardizes everyone’s safety, it is crucial to report them to the authorities. When crossing an unattended railway crossing, be sure to take extra precautions.
