Newly introduced Tata Punch Subcompact SUV Achieved a 5-star rating in the Global NCAP Crash Test. Punch is the latest Indian product to achieve a 5 star crash test rating. Participated in Altros, Nexon, Mahindra XUV300, etc.
The SUV received 5 stars for adult protection and 4 stars for child occupant protection in Global NCAP’s latest #SaferCarsForIndia crash test. It will be the third Tata car to secure the highest safety points in the Global NCAP. Small SUVs scored 16.45 out of a maximum of 17 to protect adults. We scored 40.89 out of a maximum of 49 child safety points.
The tested Tata Punch had basic safety features including two airbags, ABS and ISOFIX anchors. GLOBAL NCAP states that the small SUV can be further improved by adding a standard electronic stability control (ESC), side head impact protection system as standard, and adding a 3-point belt in all seating positions. The small SUV has a rear-facing child occupant. This indicates that this position offers the best safety option as both child dummies received good protection.
Adult occupant protection
Test results show that the punch provided good protection for the driver’s and passenger’s head and neck. The driver’s and passenger’s chests and knees showed good protection. The driver’s tibia showed adequate protection and the passenger’s tibia showed adequate and good protection. The body shell was rated stable and was able to withstand more loads. The footwell area was rated stable.
Tatapunch provides drivers and passengers with standard seatbelt reminders. It has a passenger seat SBR that has passed the UN95 side impact test and has passed the requirements, and provides standard ABS.
Child occupant protection
Child seats aged 3 and 1.5 were mounted backwards with ISOFIX connectors and support legs. The CRS can prevent excessive forward movement in the event of an impact and provides good protection for the dummy’s head and chest. CRS did not show incompatibility.
