The Tata Safari and Harrier got the highest Global NCAP rating for adult and child occupant safety during testing in the #SaferCarsForIndia program. The voluntary testing is one of the final campaign results before Bharat NCAP is activated.
The frontal and side impact protection for all models and the efficiency of Electronic Stability Control (ESC) are evaluated by Global NCAP using its crash test procedures. Tests for side impact pole protection and pedestrian safety are required for vehicles with the highest star ratings.
Both the Tata Safari and Harrier got the highest star rating during testing for both adult and child occupants, proving a reliable structure and restraint system design that offered adequate security.
Both models completely protected child occupants throughout the dynamic testing. Because they have ISOFIX anchorages and a switch to deactivate the passenger airbag, both vehicles are especially suitable for transporting children. Both the Safari and the Harrier have pedestrian protection that meets GTR9 and UN127 standards.
The vehicles also fulfill the ESC standards set by Global NCAP and provide optional ADAS systems and seatbelt reminders.
Alejandro Furas, the secretary general of the Global NCAP, said,
“Global NCAP congratulates Tata on the five-star twin model rating for the Tata Safari and Harrier. This outstanding result, which marks the greatest adult and kid safety score in our testing to date, demonstrates the manufacturer’s strong dedication to developing safer vehicles, which we wholeheartedly accept and support.
According to David Ward, president of the Towards Zero Foundation,
“It is really heartening to see Tata’s continuous commitment to outstanding safety performance. The highest score scores for the Safari and Harrier demonstrate a favorable safety trend that we are confident will continue across the Indian automotive industry as testing from Global NCAP transitions to Bharat NCAP’s efforts.
