I feel that the very last line is partly incorrect. Anyway, I would still like to hear your rationale behind this.

There are accident, like in case of infamous, highly rated Mercedes-Benz W140 (I hope I am correct here) couldn't save Princess Diana. That doesn't mean that W140 was not better than other 2/3/4-star rated cars. In similar conditions, high rated (read as 5-star) car has more probability than that of low rated ( read less than 5-star) cars.

So I don't see a valid argument in comparing two independent accidents and coming to a conclusion.

Totally agree. The cringe from Tata fanboys is right out there in the exo-sphere. I can somehow try to live with the "Tata ka Loha - Desh ka mazboot Loha" sort of juvenile comments on any and every accident video on YouTube. What however shocks me right to my core is that people actually write comments like "Aur nikalo FE", "Serves you right for buying a tincan" in the event of serious fatalities or deaths. This sort of callousness makes me thing where we are going as humans.

That being said, Tata vehicles tend to be among the safer choices in their segment. All things remaining the same, I would rather be in a Nexon or an Altroz than a Sonet/i20/Baleno in the event of a crash. This is where the GNCAP ratings matter a lot. In a similar scenario, a higher rated vehicle will always do a better job of protecting its occupants.

I am told the Creta was rear ended by a WagonR, though the other car is not in pic. Not sure if the said story is true, but what is definitely true is Creta has lost its pair of legs.

The comments from bystanders/onlookers is extremely funny. He said "can buy an 800 instead of this (Creta) if it incurred so much damage from a Wagon-R"

Such a cringe fanboys I've ever seen.

P.S- I'm not a Kia fanboy or Tata hater, just saying the sad truth about these fan-wars regarding car brands.


And, finally, I got some pics, where, the Nexon had met with an accident, which resulted in passengers losing their lives, and, after seeing this brutal accident of the Nexon, I've realized that no 5 star rated car can save a person, who drives the car at high speed and the safety depends on driver's driving not on safety ratings.
We were discussing about Seltos and suddenly, where did Tata fanboys spring up from? That's uncalled for. It's almost like diverting topic. I am a Tata fan. But, not a fanboy. I have criticized Tata motors aplenty about the way the have refused to provide a proper AT box in their Nexon P/D. A fanboy never criticizes or lets anyone criticize his favorite brand.

Seltos is actually 2-star. Clearing 3-star by a hair's breadth. 2-star rating ends at 8 points and Seltos scored 8.04; not even 8.4. And, posting so many pics of one and the same mutilated Nexon, which we don't know what it had gotten into, to drive home a point that Nexon is an unsafe car appears a bit redundant. Multiple pics of same car from more or less same angle serves no purpose other than highlighting your irritation.

Tata has been stepping on gas, of late, and if that's a source of discomfort to some, so be it. More power to Tata Motors. We need more players and more competition. Otherwise, we will be paying 30 lakhs for a hatchback and 40 lakhs for a mini-SUV in a not-too-distant future, if current trend of galloping prices are any indication.

By seeing a lot of new vehicles getting involved in crashes, I am more and more worried about the driving skills of people, be it newbie drivers or people who have been driving previously. At least in this case it looks like an accelerator/brake confusion, but in a few others it looks like simply crossing limits of the vehicle. So from now on, if a vehicle with ribbons is noticed, its better to stay away from it, especially if you are witnessing its inaugural ceremony.

She was not wearing a seat belt. The only person who survived had been wearing a seat belt.

Tata Altroz?
Looks like a temple in South India, most probably in Kerala

re: Accidents in India | Pics & Videos

Definitely a temple in Kerala. wonder how the car ended up so close to the entry of the sanctum because in one photo we can clearly see the temple compound wall and usually vehicles are not allowed inside the temple compound in most temples in Kerala. The only possibility is it was brought there for pooja. A photo from the front of the car would have given a better idea.

How ironic is this situation if indeed it was brought for pooja. But once again the expertise of the driver must be questioned here. New car & driver combination, recipe for disaster as discussed in other threads and also here quite a few times.

Yes! alloys are brittle compared to steel... the break instead of bending like steel wheels... That's why bigger vehicles, trucks, buses come mostly with huge steel wheels and off-roaders with steel wheels or steel-spokes(in case of two-wheelers)

I recent saw an Instagram reel where they run a elantra deliberately over a big pothole and the alloy breaks in a similar fashion

Hotel collapses after lorry rams into it in Kalpetta



Accidents in India | Pics & Videos-al-hotel.jpg

Don't know if I shall appreciate the build of the AL, or curse the quality of the Hotel. But such a substantial building collapsing due to the impact of a truck, which doesn't even look loaded to the top (Like the ones which carry 30-40 tons of sand) is really shocking. No wonder, the hotel's name is hotel windgate!

The news piece reads:
