At the launch of the all new facelifted Tata Tiago and Tata Tigor, the company has also revealed that the two cars have received 4 star safety rating from Global NCAP.
It was earlier last week that Tata Motors announced that the Altroz premium hatchback had achieved a 5 Star adult safety rating at the Global NCAP and now another feather in its cap is the 4 Star rating for the Tata Tiago and Tigor. The Tata Altroz was the second car from the company lineup to score a 5 Star rating at Global NCAP with the first being the Nexon SUV which received a similar rating in October 2019.
Tata Tiago and Tigor have scored a 4 Star rating at the Global NCAP. This rating is for adult occupant protection while in child occupant protection the two models have received a 3 Star rating. The Tata Tiago and Tigor tested come in with 2 frontal airbags offered as standard.
The cars however failed in structure and footwell area and were rated as unstable. In head and neck protection for adult occupants the Tiago and Tigor received a good score while chest protection for the passenger was rated as adequate and marginal for the driver. For femur and knees, the Tiago and Tigor offer marginal protection as there is some danger of obstructive structure behind the fascia.
Where child protection was concerned, the Tata Tiago and Tigor were tested with a child seat for a 3 year old child which was installed with the adult seatbelt and support leg which was able to prevent excessive forward movement on impact. The head and chest area received some protection. The 18 month old Crash Recovery System ratings in terms of protection were good while using the adult belt and support leg rearward facing.
The Tata Tiago and Tigor do not come in with three point belt for all seating positions and nor does it receive ISOFIX child seat anchorages. The models also do not get the facility of disconnecting the passenger airbag in the event of rearward facing CRS needs to be installed in the front passenger seat.
