Yet another Tata car has bagged a solid 5-star rating at the Global New Car Assessment Programme (Global NCAP) crash tests. The results have come in just in time of the premium hatchback’s launch on 22nd January 2020.
The Tata Altroz underwent a front offset crash test as well as a side-impact test, and in its report noted the Altroz provided good protection for the driver and front passenger’s head, neck and knees, and adequate protection for the chest. The Altroz’s bodyshell was said to be stable and that it was ‘capable of withstanding further loadings’.
While the Altroz has scored an impressive 16.13 points out of 17 in adult occupant protection, child occupant protection scored just 29 points out of 49. Having said that, protection for the 1.5-year-old child dummy was noted to be good, the backrest of the child seat for the 3-year-old child dummy (installed forward-facing with Isofix anchorages) unlatched during the crash and the dummy’s head made contact with the interior; leading to a deduction of points.
The Tata Altroz gets safety equipment such as dual airbags, ABS with EBD and Corner Stability Control, seatbelt reminder, speed alert system and Isofix anchorages are standard on every variant. The premium hatchback is also the second made-in-India car after the Tata Nexon to receive a full five stars from Global NCAP.
