Tata Punch, the micro-SUV has scored 5 Stars from safety rating agency Global NCAP. The car was crash tested and has punched way above its weight as it were, to come off with this score for adult occupant protection.
The new Tata Punch, a mini SUV by Tata Motors secures 5-star safety rating from Global NCAP. Tata Punch has become the third model from the Indian manufacturer to get a 5-Star rating for adult protection. And it is also only the second car from India to get a 4 star score for child occupant protection.
It launches next week and will compete against the likes of the Hyundai Grand i10 Nios and Maruti Suzuki Swift. Though in terms of attributes and segment there is no exact like rival.
The Punch’s body shell has been rated stable, and the car has scored an impressive 16.45 out of a possible 17 points for Adult Occupant Safety. Making it the highest rated car in all crash tests Global NCAP has conducted in Safer Cars For India programme.
The Tata Punch has also scored impressively for Child Occupant Protection with a solid 4 Stars. The score here was also the best yet for an Indian-made car. The car crash tested by Global NCAP, at 40.89 of a possible 49 points. Until now the Mahindra XUV300 was the only car to have a 4 Star crash rating for child safety.
It must be noted though that the two cars use different CRS or Child Restraint Systems. And so the scores are not comparable at face value. Global NCAP always uses CRS in its testing that is in-line with what the manufacturer recommends in the marketplace to its buyers.
