On one hand, the Nexon has a 5-star safety rating at the Global NCAP (for the old model according to the old testing regime). In fact, that has been one of the major reasons for its massive success in our market. On the other hand, the Thar boasts a respectable 4-star safety rating at the Global NCAP.

Tata Nexon Hits Mahindra Thar
This video comes from Raftaar 7811 on YouTube. This channel regularly posts content around road safety. On this occasion, a strange case has emerged. As per the information in the video, this takes place somewhere in Maharashtra. The driver of the Thar had to apply sudden braking due to some reason. However, the Nexon driver was unable to react quickly enough. As a result, it hits the rear end of the Thar. Thankfully, the impact was not at a very high speed. As a result, the damage on both vehicles is minimal. Also, there were no injuries reported to anyone.

On one hand, the rear section of the Thar bears some minor scratches. This includes the bumper and spare tyre. On the other hand, the front fascia of the Nexon has some minor dents too. This includes the bumper, bonnet, etc. However, both SUVs have performed quite well. It helps that the speed of these vehicles was not too high. Still, we would recommend our readers to always drive carefully. That is the first step toward ensuring that our roads become safer than they are at the moment.
What We Think
This is a perfect example of careless driving. When we are plying on the roads, it is imperative that we are always vigilant. Many road crashes happen due to the carelessness of the drivers. It is high time we started following the traffic regulations, come what may. That is the only way to ensure road safety. We lose lakhs of lives on our roads each year. Most of them could easily have been prevented. Let us pledge to be responsible drivers. Also, make sure to report miscreants to the authorities who are flouting the rules and regulations. Appropriate action on them could prove to be a deterrent.
