GNCAP Test For Reference

The new Tata Harrier and Safari have become the first ever cars to be awarded five stars in the newly established Bharat NCAP crash test programme

Tata Motors has today announced that the recently launched Harrier and Safari facelifts have gained five stars from Bharat NCAP crash test assessments. The SUVs have become the first models to get full marks (adult occupant protection and child occupant protection) in the newly established Bharat New Car Assessment Programme in India.

Moving forward, BNCAP will establish itself as the premiere safety performance evaluation protocol in the domestic market and more manufacturers will have their new vehicles tested and assessments will be of global standards. Speaking on the achievement, Union Minister for Road Transport and Highways, Nitin Gadkari, said,

“Bharat-NCAP is India’s independent, atmanirbhar voice on vehicle safety. It is benchmarked to the best-in-class global standards and the Bharat-NCAP vehicle rating system is designed to advance road safety and vehicle safety standards beyond mandatory regulations. I’m delighted that the first ever vehicles being certified today with the highest achievable 5-star rating, are both from Tata Motors.” 


Shailesh Chandra, MD, Tata Motors Passenger Vehicles Ltd and Tata Passenger Electric Mobility Ltd., has acknowledged and appreciated the collaborative efforts of the government, regulatory bodies, and the automotive industry in the pursuit for high safety standards in India. Both SUVs are built on the OMEGA-ARC platform, which is derived from Land Rover’s D8 architecture.

It is worth noting that the new Tata Harrier and Safari were awarded five stars by Global NCAP as well. The latest Global NCAP crash test protocols assess frontal and side impact protection along with Electronic Stability Control (ESC), the pedestrian protection and side impact pole protection tests being mandatory to score the highest ratings.

Some of the key features in both SUVs are seven airbags (six as standard), Electronic Stability Control as standard, 3-point seatbelts in all rows, seatbelt reminder for all passengers, ISOFIX tethers, seatbelts with retractor, pretensioner, Load Limiter (RPLL) and anchor pretensioner, and so on.
