Tata Motors recently tested the safety of its new Tata Harrier and Safari models in India through the NCAP crash test. However, the company had already put these vehicles through the Global NCAP, where both received an impressive five-star safety rating.
This means the cars performed very well in safety tests, but now Tata is retesting them specifically for India. The results from these tests will help us understand how these vehicles perform in crash scenarios according to Indian safety standards.
India NCAP Rating
Great news for the Indian automotive industry! Bharat NCAP, a native safety assessment program, has made its debut in the Indian market. This initiative means that vehicles will no longer require testing at foreign security facilities.
The India NCAP aims to align its testing results and protocols with the esteemed Global NCAP. Under these aligned standards, the Tata Harrier and Safari have both secured an impressive five-star safety rating.
This development underscores a significant step forward in ensuring standardised safety assessments for vehicles within the country.
Both the SUVs have performed well in the Indian market. And we see this demonstration in normal life as well.
