Tata Tiago (4-star NCAP) Crash
Reportedly, the wheel of the hatchback became wobbly and the car lost traction. As a result, the driver could not do anything as the car came out of the corner and headed straight to a tree. Before one could realize what was going on, the airbags did their job and cushioned the passengers. Consequently, there were no injuries to the occupants. We must also mention here, that the main reason that the airbags worked well and the passengers were not thrown outside the window on the impact is because of seatbelts. We can’t emphasize enough how useful and important the seatbelts are. People often either forget or ignore wearing seatbelts if they are travelling locally.
