Tata Motors reported today that the Bharat NCAP crash test evaluations gave the recently released facelifts for the Harrier and Safari vehicles five stars. SUVs are now the first vehicle types in India’s recently launched Bharat New Car Assessment Programme to receive full marks for both adult and child occupant protection.

As time goes on, BNCAP will become the industry standard for safety performance evaluations in the domestic market. Additionally, more automakers will test their new cars, and evaluations will meet international standards. Nitin Gadkari, the Union Minister for Road Transport and Highways, remarked on the accomplishment, saying,

India’s impartial, atmanirbhar voice on auto safety is Bharat-NCAP. Road safety and vehicle safety standards are intended to be advanced above legally required levels by the Bharat-NCAP vehicle rating system, which is benchmarked to the best-in-class global standards. It is an honor that two Tata Motors vehicles are the first to be certified with the highest possible 5-star rating today.

Shailesh Chandra, MD of Tata Motors Passenger Vehicles Ltd. and Tata Passenger Electric Mobility Ltd., has expressed gratitude for the government, industry associations, and the automotive sector working together to raise the bar for safety in India. The OMEGA-ARC platform, which is based on Land Rover’s D8 architecture, serves as the foundation for both SUVs.

It is interesting that Global NCAP also gave the new Tata Harrier and Safari five ratings. The most recent Global NCAP crash test protocols evaluate Electronic Stability Control (ESC) and frontal and side impact protection; passing the side impact pole and pedestrian protection tests is required to receive the top ratings.

Seven airbags (six standard), Electronic Stability Control, 3-point seatbelts in every row, seatbelt reminders for every passenger, ISOFIX tethers, retracting seatbelts, pretensioners, load limiters (RPLL), anchor pretensioners, and other features are only a few of the important features found in both SUVs.
