Tata Motors trolls Maruti Suzuki over Swift's zero crash rating
New Delhi : Maruti Suzuki is one company which has remained constant when it comes to performing poorly in the crash tests; recently conducted Latin New Car Assessment Program (NCAP) crash test on made in India Suzuki Swift makes things even worse.
The car could manage 15.53 per cent rating for adult occupant protection, while the same for child occupant protection was 0 per cent. Making fun of poor build quality, Tata Motors took a dig at Maruti Suzuki in a hilarious fashion on social media.
In an Instagram post by Tata Tiago's official account, an image of a slot machine with the letters of the word 'Swift' jumbled and a copy that said 'Don't gamble on Safety'. The social media post was later removed from the account.
Tata Motors cars have been performing well when it comes to crash tests as the company's cars have scored more than 4-star safety rating. Tata Nexon and Altroz even have a five star safety rating.
This won't be the first instance of Tata Motors taking pot-shots at its rival manufacturers though. Earlier, Tata Motors trolled the Hyundai Grand i10 Nios, the Maruti Suzuki WagonR and the Maruti Suzuki S-Presso as well, after their crash test results were declared. Needless to say, Tata Motors has a savage sense of humour and isn't afraid of taking on its rivals in the segment, at least on social media.
