Tata gets 4-star rating for Zest

Recently, Tata’s compact sedan Zest secured 4-star safety rating in crash tests conducted by Global NCAP, a UK-based safety and testing organization.

Zest is also the first passenger vehicle from an Indian company to get such high rating for safety. The compact sedan rating has moved from zero to 4-stars, a significant achievement.

As part of its #SaferCarsforIndia campaign, Global NCAP conducted tests on two versions of Tata Zest - the standard non-airbag version, and new version with optional airbags.

The standard non-airbag version resulted in a disappointing zero star score for adult occupant protection and 1-star for child occupant protection. 

However, Global NCAP offered Tata the opportunity to test another vers ion of the Zest with more safety features. Tata introduced a structural improvement to the entire Zest range while Global NCAP tested the new version with optional airbags, according to a statement.

The Zest with two airbags and two pretensioners showed substantial improvements and, together with the seat belt reminder in the driver seat, the Zest achieved an impressive four star score in adult occupant protection. 

Tata also selected other child restraint systems for the airbag version, improving the rear seat child occupant protection to 2 stars. The company has also announced that the improvements made to the structure will be brought to the entire vehicle range, for both airbag and non-airbag versions.
