Tata Motors has been acing all the crash tests conducted by vehicle safety group Global NCAP. Its models like Nexon, Punch and Altroz have already bagged a full 5-star safety rating but not many know that even its entry-level model, Tata Tiago, has bagged a respectable 4-star rating from the crash test organisation in the adult protection category. The small car was tested under the organisation’s #SaferCarsForIndia initiative.
As per Global NCAP, the car offered ‘adequate’ protection to the head of the driver and the front passenger. Also, both the front occupants benefited from good protection from the tech. Even the driver’s chest had adequate protection, but the driver’s knees and the front occupant had only marginal protection. They could suffer from an impact with dangerous structures located behind the dashboard supported by the Tranfascia tube. The driver and passenger tibias had adequate and good protection, respectively. However, the footwell area was rated as unstable. The car offers a seatbelt reminder for both the front seats. All of this leads to a 4-star safety rating for adult occupants.
The Tata Tiago has scored a 4-star rating for child occupants protection. As per Global NCAP, the child seat for 3-yaer old and 1.5-year old were installed in RWF position using the adult seatbelt. In both the cases, the car was able to avoid excessive forward movement in case of an impact. The chest and head had good protection. CRS marking was permanent. The recommended CRSs did not show incompatibility. The Tiago comes with lapbelt in the rear centre position and it doesn’t have ISOFIX anchorages. All of the above leads to the 4-star rating for child occupant protection.
“Chest protection for a passenger was adequate and marginal for the driver. Femur and knees showed marginal protection as there is a risk of contracting dangerous structures behind the fascia,” Global NCAP said. The 4-star safety rating result of the Tata Tiago was announced soon after the Altroz scored five stars. Global NCAP launched #SaferCarsForIndia Campaign in 2014 with the aim of promoting safer vehicles in the country. “Between 2014 and 2020 Global NCAP has completed more than thirty-seven safety assessments which have acted as an important catalyst in the safety improvement of Indian cars,” the global organization said.

Speaking on the Tata Tiago safety rating, David Ward, CEO and President of Global NCAP said,“Another solid result from Tata with the Tigor and Tiago. It’s clear that doing well in Global NCAP’s assessments has become an essential requirement for Indian automakers who are now leading the way in our crashworthiness league table.”
