With an NCAP 5-star safety rating, the Tata Altroz is currently the safest vehicle in the hotly contested B2-hatchback segment of the Indian car market.
For many years, the Tata Altroz has been touted as one of the safest cars you can buy for a reasonable price. Despite ignoring the 5-star NCAP safety rating for a moment, there have been several incidents that confirm the statement that the minivan is the safest hatchback in the segment. In fact, we regularly report accidents in which the rival of Maruti Baleno and Hyundai i20 left their passengers without quotes. Today, however, things are different. The last major car accident in Tata was recently in Bhubnashwar. Surprisingly, the car collided with a divider and bent in the middle.

Tata Altroz is bent in the middle
The last accident involving a hatchback took place in Bhubaneswar. It is said that the car was traveling at a high speed, lost control and crashed into a divider. The blow was strong enough that it left the car in a very bad condition. The contact was on the left side of the car and was large enough to completely bend column B. Both the doors and the B column are badly damaged. Even the roof was deformed and the front axle was broken. The impact was so bad that even the other side of the car was slightly damaged. Altroz’s damage during the accident was, of course, unusual, but even rarer – this time he could not hold his passengers without scratches.

According to the video, both passengers were slightly injured. Although exact details of the injuries are not available, blood stains can be seen on airbags, chairs and even doors. Fortunately, no casualties were reported. However, we were surprised to see that the Tata Altroz could not prevent injuries to passengers. Of course, this does not mean that the car is not safe enough. In such cases, it is impossible to determine the speed and angle of impact. The “L” stickers on the windshield may also indicate that the driver is new to the wheel. Now this is something that increases the risk of disaster.

It is impossible to say everything, look at the picture and assess the suitability of the car. But, of course, this incident is a good reminder that bad things can happen if you are not careful. We urge all our readers to learn to drive safely in any situation. Also, do not exceed the permissible limits of the vehicle. Finally, it is important to exercise your driving skills and not succeed.
