In the latest incident, a Tata Nexon hits a Mahindra Thar from the rear. Now, both these Indian SUVs boast impressive safety ratings. In fact, Tata Nexon was the first Indian vehicle to score a full 5-star safety rating at the Global NCAP. However, that was back in 2018. Now, the testing protocols of Global NCAP have been changed and the Nexon also gets a facelift model which is yet to be tested. On the other hand, the Thar is the most successful off-roader in the country. It comes with hardcore off-roading equipment to ensure that you get access to just about any part of the world. For now, let us take a look at the details of this latest case.
Tata Nexon Hits Mahindra Thar
This video clip comes from Ak.creation_777 on YouTube. The visuals showcase the after-effects of the collision. The front section of the pre-facelift Nexon seems to have incurred significant damage. The bonnet has been crumpled a little, the headlamp is broken and there is an impact on the bumper and radiator grille. The video also shares the details of the Thar. There is barely any scratch to the rear section of the off-roading SUV where the Nexon hit it. That is quite impressive.

Still, I would like to mention here that such cases can’t be representative of the build quality of cars. In fact, there are crumple zones and pedestrian safety measures in place while designing any car. Hence, the front part which could hit a pedestrian is designed in such a way that it causes the least amount of injury to the person. That is why you would see the bumper and bonnet easily getting affected in any accident. It doesn’t mean that the vehicle is weak. For that, you need to refer to the official NCAP ratings of the cars. It provides comprehensive details about the efficiency of the build and safety equipment.

This is a prime example of how people could easily get swayed away by social media content. They are surprised to see the higher safety-rated Nexon getting more impacted by a slightly lower safety-rated Thar. But diving into the details of such cases is necessary. As mentioned previously, we can’t take anything at face value on social media. Such content can be consumed for entertainment purposes. But you must not make the mistake of judging the build quality of any car using such an instance. Make sure to follow traffic regulations to make our roads safer than they are at the moment.
