It's another crash date! Tata Motors has once again taken a jibe at Maruti Suzuki's latest score on vehicle safety standards on social media. In the most recent version of Latin New Car Assessment Program (NCAP) crash tests, Maruti's Suzuki Swift received a perfect score of zero. The car obtained a 0% rating for kid occupant protection, but a 15.53 percent rating for adults. Tata Motors responded by taunting its competitor on social media. By publishing an image of a slot machine with the letters "SIWTF" and a caption that read "Don't bet on safety."
On Twitter, the Tiago handle wrote, “Latest NCAP safety test shows that it’s not safe to ride ‘Swift’ly”. When it comes to crash tests, Maruti has a poor track record. Maruti S-Presso had scored zero at the Global NCAP crash tests last year. In a crash test conducted by Latin NCAP, the Swift hatchback also failed. Tata's Nexon and Altroz, on the other hand, have both received five-star ratings from the Global NCAP. Tata Tiago has previously received four stars. Harrier and Safari had not been crash-tested by Tata.
Although Maruti's Vitara Brezza received four stars in worldwide NCAP crash tests, Tata and Mahindra have maintained their edge in terms of safety standards. Tata Motors isn't the only company to make fun of rival automakers. It had earlier trolled Hyundai i20, Ford Aspire, and Honda Amaze cars.
