In a major accident, a Tata Altroz rolled twice and suffered major damage. However, the passengers survived without a single scratch.
Over the last few years, Tata Motors has raised safety standards in Indian cars. It is one of the few companies to have multiple vehicles with a 5-star safety rating. Even entry-level Tata cars have received good safety ratings. Now, a major accident of the Tata Altroz put the safety ratings of the premium hatchback to test. The results of the crash show the build quality of Tata Altroz as it kept all passengers safe. Let’s take a closer look.

As you can see in the images above, a Tata Altroz met a serious accident. The car rolled twice and landed upside down on the roadside. As a result, the outer shell had severe damage. The right door is all banged up and the window panel are gone as well. However, the Tata car had an intact cabin and roof pillar. There were five people in the vehicle during the accident. Everyone survived the crash without a scratch. The miraculous outcome displays the importance of safe cars and safety ratings/ standards.
The cause of the accident is said to be driver negligence. Thousands of people lose their lives in avoidable accidents every year. The quality of Indian roads varies from place to place. Also, since random objects might appear out of nowhere (animals, kids, potholes, etc) it is important to be mindful while driving. Fortunately, now you can invest in a safe car (with good build quality and safety equipment). The increased sales of Tata cars are likely to encourage other manufacturers to build safer cars as well. Still, follow the traffic rules and report anyone driving recklessly to the authorities. Over-speeding is a clear no-no.
