We often see brand loyalists sticking to a particular brand when upgrading their vehicles. This Tata customer upgraded his hatchback – a Tata Tiago to Tata Nexon after his car got into a massive accident and overturned while saving another motorist. The former Tata Tiago customer says that he bought the Nexon because the Tiago saved his life.
The accident happened in Odisha. According to the details, the owner of the car was on a blind turn when a scooter rider came in front of the vehicle. The Tata Tiago owner swerved the car to avoid hitting the motorist. He lost control of the vehicle and as you can see in the pictures, the vehicle overturned and is resting on its roof.
Multiple pictures of the car show a big dent on the roof and an impact on the front left of the vehicle. However, we are not sure if the airbags opened in this accident. Nonetheless, the driver of the car came out of the vehicle on his own and claims that there is not a single scratch on his body. It means that the doors were functioning normally even when the vehicle got upside down.
It seems like a complete write-off, which is why the owner must be upgrading to a new car after the accident. Incidentally, rollover crashes have become quite common with Tata cars. We are not sure if it is a design flaw or the way Tata owner drive their vehicles but there have been numerous incidents of Tata cars including the Tiago getting toppled during accidents.
