Both these SUVs boast a full 5-star safety rating from the GNCAP but let’s see how well do these perform in real-life situations.
Tata Nexon and Skoda Kushaq are both 5-star SUVs which is slowly and thankfully, becoming a norm with certain carmakers. Tata Motors and VW-Skoda Group focus on safety more than anything else. That is the prime cause for the increased sales of their products. Nexon consistently features at the podium positions on the list of highest-selling compact SUVs, while the Kushaq (with Slavia) has propelled Skoda to reach its highest sales in the country ever. But let us see which one of these performs better in a real-life incident.

Nexon vs Kushaq – 5-star SUVs
This video has been uploaded on YouTube by Raftaar 7811. As per the information in this video, this accident took place in Jharkhand. Reportedly, the Nexon hit the Kushaq from the rear. The exact reason for the crash is still unknown. It is entirely possible that the Kushaq had to be brought to rest suddenly and the Nexon driver couldn’t react quickly enough. As a result, the Nexon collided with the Kushaq from the back. No injury has been reported in this crash to anyone.
One can clearly see that the damage on the Nexon is more than on the Kushaq. The front end of the Nexon suffered a broken bumper, headlight, fender and bonnet. However, the side pillars are intact and have been able to absorb maximum damage. On the other hand, the rear section of the Kushaq has suffered relatively less damage. The bumper and tailgate are bent a little but the other components are unaffected. In this case, both 5-star SUVs are able to perform according to their ratings.
