In this horrific crash, the driver and passengers escaped without any fatal injuries courtesy of the Tata Tiago’s build quality
Tata Motors is known for exemplary build quality on its vehicles and there have been plenty of stories of horrific crashes on the internet ending without any fatal injuries and some would shock them considering the scenario of the accidents.
Underlining the brand’s quest in consistently improving safety, the Nexon was awarded five stars in Global NCAP crash tests last year and was the first Indian made vehicle to achieve that feat. Here are some of the pictures posted by Muru Son Velu on the All-India Tata Tiago Owners Club Facebook group showcasing a Tiago involved in a massive crash.
The reason behind the accident is yet unknown but you can witness the sedan heavily slamming on to a light pole and the impact leading to the snapping of the pole. Miraculously in the totalled Tata Tiago that has its front end completely shattered, the driver and passengers have escaped without any fatal injuries.
The homegrown manufacturer introduced the Tiago in early 2016 before giving it a mild update with range expansion and subtle cosmetic changes late last year. The Tiago saw decent success in its initial months but its popularity did take a hit due to the arrival of the new Wagon R and the New Hyundai Santro.
In May 2019, only 3,535 units of the Tiago were sold against 7,000 units in the same month last year with YoY de-growth of 49 per cent. Tata is already preparing a facelift for the Tiago and is expected to be launched soon to tackle the declining sales figures. The facelift will likely have substantial revisions though as the Tiago could adopt the evolved Impact Design 2.0.
The current 1.2-litre Revotron petrol engine developing 85 PS and 114 Nm and the same motor turbocharged in the JTP variant pumping out 114 PS and 150 Nm are expected to continue with BSVI compliance in the facelift.
