Rains cause road surfaces to get slippery which is why it is advised to drive below the speed limit during such conditions to ensure safety.
In this incident, a Tata Altroz skids in rain and falls off a hill. Altroz holds the distinction of being the only hatchback in the country with a full 5-star safety rating at the GNCAP. That is the reason why new customers have preferred it a lot and it was able to surpass the mighty Hyundai i20 on sales charts a few times. Maruti Baleno still is a clear segment leader when it comes to sales. For now, let us take a look at the details of this incident.
