Tata Motors, India’s leading automobile manufacturer, has achieved a remarkable feat in the field of vehicle safety. The company’s two flagship models, the Tata Safari and the Tata Harrier, have received the highest rating of five stars for both adult and child occupant protection in the Global NCAP tests. This makes them the safest cars of Tata Motors and among the safest cars in India.
The Global NCAP (New Car Assessment Programme) is an independent organization that conducts crash tests on various car models and evaluates their safety performance. The tests measure the impact of frontal and side collisions on the car’s structure and the occupants’ injuries. The tests also assess the effectiveness of the car’s safety features, such as airbags, seat belts, and electronic stability control (ESC).
The Tata Safari and the Tata Harrier are based on the same vehicle platform, but they differ in their seating capacity and design. The Safari is a seven-seater SUV with a spacious cabin and a panoramic sunroof. The Harrier is a five-seater SUV with a sleek and sporty look. Both models are equipped with six airbags and ESC as standard features. They also have advanced technology features, such as hill descent control, traction control, corner stability control, and brake disc wiping.
The Global NCAP tests revealed that both the Safari and the Harrier have a stable structure and robust restraint systems that offer good protection to the occupants in case of a crash. The Safari scored 16.5 out of 17 points for adult occupant protection and 42.8 out of 49 points for child occupant protection. The Harrier scored 16.4 out of 17 points for adult occupant protection and 42.7 out of 49 points for child occupant protection. Both models achieved a five-star rating, which is the highest possible rating in the Global NCAP tests.
The achievement of Tata Motors is commendable, as it shows the company’s commitment to providing safe and quality products to its customers. It also sets a benchmark for other car manufacturers in India to improve their safety standards and meet the expectations of consumers. Tata Motors has proved that it is possible to make affordable cars that are also safe and reliable.
If you are looking for a car that offers you comfort, performance, style, and most importantly, safety, then you should consider buying either the Tata Safari or the Tata Harrier. These are not just cars, but five-star twins that will keep you and your family safe on the road.
