This result applies to Nexon models manufactured after August 8, 2023.


Key Highlights

  • Tata Nexon becomes the latest Indian SUV to secure a 5-star rating from GNCAP under the new norms.
  • This is the second time that the Nexon has been given a 5-star safety rating by GNCAP.
  • Back in December, the Harrier and Safari rating scored a 5-star rating in Bharat NCAP tests.

Tata Nexon has scored 5 stars yet again in the Global NCAP crash tests. Previously, the SUV secured a 5-star safety rating back in 2018.

Along with the Nexon, Tata’s Harrier and Safari were also sent to the GNCAP for crash testing. The latter two received a 5-star safety rating from the Bharat NCAP in December 2023.
