Tata cars are known for their build quality, and we have seen several cases where occupants have escaped from major accidents without any injuries in Tata cars. Here we have one such story of a husband and wife from Pune who bought a Tata Harrier facelift after their pre-facelift version of the SUV saved their lives in a crash.

The video has been shared by DDS on their YouTube channel. In this video, the presenter speaks to the couple who recently bought the Tata Harrier facelift. The couple mentions that they were earlier using a Tata Harrier Dark Edition. The SUV was almost three months old and had only completed 5,000 km on the odometer.

On a rainy day when the couple was out on the road inside the city, a Maruti Brezza SUV rear-ended their SUV and damaged the car badly. The impact was so hard that the Harrier was pushed on top of a divider in the middle of the road. The airbags deployed on time, and the occupants were all safe. Both of them walked out of the SUV without any injuries.

The occupants in the Maruti Brezza were injured and were taken to the nearby hospital. The crash was so bad that the spare wheel mounted under the floor fell down, and the engine from the front also dropped on the road. The car was taken to the service center, and insurance was claimed. Upon inspection, the insurance company found that the cost of repairing this SUV was around Rs 25 lakh, which was way over the price of the vehicle.

So, they declared it a total loss, and the claim was passed. After this, the couple started looking for other options. They drove cars like Hyundai Creta, Mahindra XUV300, Volkswagen Taigun, and many other models in the market. A few days after the accident, the facelift of the Harrier and Safari had also launched in the market.

The customer finally made up his mind and went ahead and booked the Harrier. However, he had to wait for almost three months before he could take delivery. In these three months, he had several thoughts coming to his mind. He was even planning to cancel his booking with Tata and go and pick up a Hyundai Creta.

Just as he was about to do it, he got a call from the Tata dealership telling him that his car had arrived and they could take delivery at the earliest. The customer has bought the Pure+ S variant which comes with all necessary features like automatic climate control, panoramic sunroof, rear AC vents, 10-inch touchscreen infotainment system, multi-function steering wheel, cruise control, fully digital instrument cluster, and so on.

The owner mentions that with the BS6 phase 2 in place, he feels the engine in the Harrier facelift has become a lot more refined. The hydraulic steering wheel has also been updated, and the facelift now comes with electric power steering which is much lighter and easier to use in the city.

The owner mentions that he has not faced any issues with the vehicle yet and has had a good experience from the dealership and service center with both the older and the newly bought Harrier. The build quality of the SUV is what made them chose Harrier again. Tata Harrier and Safari both scored 5 star rating at Bharat NCAP crash test.
