While I understand where you are coming from, I feel it is us as a whole who haven't cared enough about safety. I owned a Kizashi which was one of the safest cars in its segment outperforming cars like the C-Class, 3-series and A4 until 2014 when its production was ceased. The car was sold here for a pittance with akebono brakes, such fantastic safety nets and what did we all have to say? "It's too expensive" even though it was far cheaper than its rivals. On the other hand, every generation of the Swift keeps getting lighter and flimsier yet we all sing praise.

The common man doesn't really care about much else apart from features, but if us enthusiasts also make such grave mistakes in what we choose to endorse, there's no point laying back and blaming the companies for reacting to market trends.

Well let's hope TATA doesn't silently delete the new chassis safety features to get back to cost cutting when the word of mouth about this crash rating hits its peak.

Wow. They have earned my respect 100% Now I hope work on reliability is next. I wish it had a four cylinder engine instead of three

I dont think any of the recent Tata's have any issues with reliability as far as I know. Reliability is a constant endeavour anyway and there is always room for improvement but as things stand currently, their car's are not unreliable.

Proud moment for us. I am so happy this is a Tata product. The Nexon is a wonderful car and I wish Tata a very successful journey. They have got their priorities right. May they continue to focus on safety in every car they make.
Lets hope they become the Volvo of India.

I have seen numerous complaints about Nexon on facebook forums, hence the comment

Oh my God - Tata. Congratulations .

This is incredible. I wouldn't have expected the Nexon to do so well, considering that its based on an old platform that dates back to the Indica Vista! Clearly, a lot of work has been done to bring it up to date.

Love this news. Tata has just raised the benchmark for others to follow. It's always one mega car that sets a higher standard that other new launches go on to adopt.

Class act, man!

Buddy, check feedback on our own forum. It's pretty good. Tata is making reliable cars, and that's a fact. Please accept this! When I bought a Tata there were these old wives' tales. These people would quote some vague source or some uncle of a friend, who... once upon a time, bought a Tata and burnt his hand. We burnt our hand on first gen Indica, water leaked from the top when it rained (just after we took delivery) and were taking the car home! But this doesn't hold true anymore, brother! You can quote me on this, next time!

Damn! This again! I just witnessed this debate today morning on a WhatsApp group. It's like no matter what Tata does, some things will never ever change... Or we don't want to change?

Please, let's hope this wonderful thread celebrating a true achievement does not get diluted with this debate.

Open any damn page of any car and any manufacturer. Its full of complaints. I have seen honda, maruti, toyota too where customers are posting issues about their cars.

Internet is a good platform to post issues and gain attention. Many use it at peril these days. Its a double edge sword.
