Accidents are not uncommon in India. There are hundreds of accidents that happen daily and most of them go unreported. While many accidents cause horrific results, most customers of Tata Nexon do not face such situations and often appreciate the build quality of the car. Here is one such accident that took place in Kerala where the owner lives to tell the tale.
The video on the Nikhil Rana channel tells us the ordeal of the occupants of the Nexon and a phone conversation with the owner who explains what lead to the accident. The owner of this Tata Nexon is Mr Vishak N.C.
Nexon fell several feet down
The incident happened when Vishak and his two friends were returning from work in Idukki to Cochin, Kerala. A driver was driving the vehicle as Vishak was sitting in the front seat and two of the friends sat in the rear. As they were coming back from work, the Kerala government had put the state under orange alert due to incessant rain in the city.
As the visibility dropped due to the rain, the driver of the Nexon saw an open sewage hole and tried to avoid it. While avoiding the hole, the tyre went off the road. As the tyre came to the dirt, it slipped and dropped almost 20 – 30 feet.
The owner says that all of the occupants said that they did not think that they were alive. No one thought that they will be alive but all the occupants came out safely. No one got injured as well but one of the persons got spinal injuries and will be on bed rest for three months. All others were safe in the car.
Tata Nexon is India’s first five-star rated vehicle
Tata Nexon, which was earlier tested by Global NCAP in August 2016 was re-tested to receive the highest ever points by a made-in-India vehicle. The Nexon received 16.06 points out of 17, which was the highest ever rating achieved by any car ever made in India. This adds one more star to Nexon’s earlier 4-star rating by the same testing agency.
The Nexon later gave the safest car in India position to other cars like the Altroz, XUV300 and recently, the Tata Punch. In the past, many owners have thanked the build quality and safety provided by Tata cars after getting involved in accidents.
Tata boasts of the safest car line-up certified by Global NCAP in India. It includes five-star cars like Tata Punch, Tata Nexon and Tata Altroz. There are four-star rated Tata Tiago and Tata Tigor as well.
