Here is yet another example of the strong build quality of Tata Nexon. In fact, this strong build quality can be seen on all Tata products. It is no news that Tata prioritizes vehicle safety but this video represents the real-life consequences and impact of that. We have seen multiple videos in the past as well where Nexon has been able to withstand a ton of high impact crashes and collisions and most of the time, it was the compact SUV and its safety equipment that was the prime factor in saving lives of the occupants. That is one of the major reasons for the high sales of Nexon last month. It crossed the magic number of 10,000 monthly sales and officially entered the top 10 highest-selling cars in India. Moving back to the topic at hand, here are the details of this incident.
Tata Nexon Build Quality
In this video, a truck is seen on the road immediately after the impact. The details of how the accident happened are unknown. But Tata Nexon was hit from the side. The driver’s side door was hit by the front of the truck. The truck must’ve tried to stop but could not. Nexon seems to be crossing the road. But the side panel, door and fender seemed to have taken the brunt of the impact. However, the dent and damage aren’t much considering that it was hit by a truck head-on. Reportedly, the driver fainted because of the impact and was rushed to the hospital. But there were no injures sustained by any party. This is a testament to Tata’s build quality that it was still able to take the collision and protect its occupants. That is why one should always consider the safety aspect before buying a new vehicle.
