It’s the date of another accident! Tata Motors took to social media to take a dig at Maruti Suzuki’s latest score on vehicle safety parameters yet again. In the latest edition of the Latin New Car Assessment Program (NCAP) crash test, Maruti’s Suzuki Swift got a perfect score of zero. The car received a 0% rating for the safety of child occupants, but a 15.53 percent rating for adults. Tata Motors responded by taunting its rival on social media. By publishing an image of a slot machine with the letters “SIWTF” and a caption titled “Don’t bet on safety”.
The handle Tiago wrote on Twitter, ‘Latest NCAP safety test shows that ‘Swift’ is not safe to ride. When it comes to crash tests, Maruti has a poor track record. The Maruti S-Presso had scored zero in the Global NCAP crash test last year. The Swift hatchback also failed in crash tests conducted by Latin NCAP. Tata’s Nexon and Altroz, on the other hand, have both received a five-star rating from the Global NCAP. Tata Tiago has got four stars before this. The Harrier and Safari were not crash-tested by Tata.
Though Maruti’s Vitara Brezza got four stars in NCAP crash tests across the globe, Tata and Mahindra have maintained their lead in terms of safety standards. Tata Motors is not the only company making fun of rival automakers. Earlier it trolled Hyundai i20, Ford Aspire and Honda Amaze cars.
