The Mahindra Thar now becomes the second Vehicle from Mahindra after the XUV300 to pass out the crash test with flying colours.
The Iconic SUV secures 4-stars for both adult as well as child occupant protection in Global NCAP’s new round of ‘Safer Cars for India’ crash test.
Here’s What GNCAP Results speak
The Thar achieved four stars for adult and child occupant protection. The Thar offers double frontal airbags as standard. Driver and passenger’s head and neck showed good protection. Driver’s chest offered adequate protection and passenger chest showed good protection. The structure was rated as stable but the footwell area was rated as unstable, not being capable of withstanding further loadings. Both adult knee areas were optimized to reduce significant injuries. Both child occupants received almost full protection during the test. The Thar offers standard ISOFIX anchorages and top tether together with 3 point belts for all seating positions.
Global NCAP awards a separate child safety rating to each car in order to highlight the different levels of protection vehicles provide to passengers on the rear seats. Global NCAP tests a combination of the car and child seat recommended by the own car manufacturer. Because the only safe way for young children to travel is properly restrained in a child seat, the assessment checks how compatible the car is with the child seats recommended by the manufacturer, as well as the protection provided in the crash test.
The New Generation Mahindra Thar was officially launched in India on october 2, 2o20.The SUV also crossed overwhelming 20,000 bookings within a month of it’s launch. Due to exceptional response for the new Thar,the waiting periods were being risen up as high as 6-7 months.
