Both VW Taigun and Tata Altroz have scored full 5-star safety ratings at the Global NCAP, although the former did it with the latest testing standards, while Altroz was tested before the new safety norms came into effect.
In this crash between the VW Taigun and Tata Altroz, the real-life performance of both 5-star rated vehicles has come to the surface. Taigun has scored this rating in the latest updated testing norms which are slightly more demanding than the previous ones. Essentially, that makes it the safest SUV in the country. On the other hand, Altroz has been around for a long time and was tested in accordance with the last-gen Global NCAP norms. It still got a 5-star rating which is a testament to the build quality of the premium hatchback. Let us see what happens when these two collide.

We must not make judgements regarding the actual build quality of cars from such incidents. Each accident involved millions of factors and the Global NCAP takes into account only a few of them. Essentially, these tests are in a controlled environment. But the real-life crashes are far from controlled. Therefore, you must not entirely rely on the safety rating of your car. The first step still remains careful and responsible driving.
