What makes Tata Nexon a safe SUV?
The Energy-absorbing body structure with high-strength steel construction and critical reinforcements, effectively absorb the impact energy and provide a stable load-path for protecting the passenger compartment from deformation.
For driver & passenger safety, the Nexon comes equipped with dual-frontal airbags and seatbelts with pre-tensioner, load-limiter & crash-locking tongue which prevents the uncontrolled forward movement of the occupant and avoids injuries. The driver footwell area is also reinforced with pedal blockers to prevent the feet injuries in the event of an unfortunate crash.
In addition to the structural integrity, Nexon hosts a range of Safety features such as ABS with EBD as a standard offering, ISOFIX anchorage for child-seat, Child-safety door locks, Voice-based alerts and Front fog lamps with cornering assistance which ensure an all-round safety while driving on-road.
With its striking style and exhilarating performance, the Tata Nexon has been winning hearts of the customers and yielding robust sales numbers for Tata Motors since its launch.
