Tata Nexon has been awarded highest safety ratings amongst cars in India by Global NCAP -- a trusted name in automobile safety parameters. Tata Nexon was awarded an adult safety rating of 5-star and a child safety rating of 3-star. The Nexon is the only car to be awarded 5-star rating in India in the adult safety index.
Tata Nexon might be behind its segment rivals in the sales figures but it has trumped the likes of Maruti Vitara Brezza and Hyundai Venue in terms of safety.
While the Tata Nexon model produced after December 7, 2018, takes the top spot, the second position has been taken by its predecessor model. Clearly, Tata Nexon has been one of the safest cars to buy in India for a long time.
Mahindra's Marazzo comes in next with a 4-star safety rating.
