Here is the latest accident involving a Tata Tiago that had a head-on collision with an oncoming truck. See the impressive build quality.
Tata Tiago is the safest hatchback that you can buy under Rs 5 Lakhs now, securing a strong 4-star safety rating. It boasts of a stable structure and strong components used that make its crumple zone tougher than a lot of cars. Here is an accident where Tiago went through a severe head-on collision with an oncoming truck.
The owner was travelling on outer ring road of Chennai at night time when an oncoming truck crashed into him at high speed. The airbags deployed immediately and owner came out without any major injuries. He just got a seatbelt bruise and sprain on both the knees. As you can see the damage to Tiago is quite high.
The front portion has been completely damaged and mostly, the car is beyond repairs. The engine bay has been damaged and even the radiator has come out. The tyres have burst along with chassis completely twisted. Even the doors have crumpled due to the severe impact. Surely, the speed of both vehicles has to be around 50-60 km/hr.
This time, even the cabin seems to have been impacted as the driver seat is also broken. The headrest is missing from the frame and even the co-passenger seat seems slightly out of the bracket. The owner feels safe and extremely happy with the impressive build quality of Tata Tiago. However, the car has been moved by 1 kilometre and that’s why, he will lose 25% of the claim value.
Tata Tiago is among the most popular hatchbacks of India mainly due to its build quality. Earlier, it came with a puny but torquey diesel engine which was very easy on the pocket. However, due to the BS6 norms, Tiago lost its 1.05 Litre diesel unit and now continues with its 1.2 Litre three-cylinder petrol motor.
Tiago petrol produces 86 BHP and 116 Nm of peak torque, paired with a 5-speed MT and a 5-speed AMT. Features onboard include a fully digital instrument cluster, 7-inch infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, rear parking camera, alloy wheels, dual front airbags and much more. Prices start at Rs 4.69 Lakhs up to Rs 6.73 Lakhs (Ex-showroom).
