- Shocking video of a collision between a Tata Nano and a Hyundai Venue raises questions about the strength of both cars.
- The importance of crumple zones in modern cars and how they help protect passengers during collisions.
Many people typically use a road collision to measure the strength of a car. Here’s an accident between a Hyundai Venue and a Tata Nano that people are using to assess the vehicle’s strength. Can you do it by chance?
The collision occurred in Jammu between a Tata Nano and a Hyundai Venue. According to the video, the Hyundai Venue collided with the rear end of the Tata Nano. The collision caused significant damage to the Venue’s front end, and we can also see the open airbags. The rear end of the Tata Nano, on the other hand, has been severely damaged, with the rear axle breaking as a result of the hit.
According to the footage, none of the passengers were wounded in the mishap. They have not stated how serious the injuries sustained by the passengers in both cars were.
Nonetheless, the video claims that the Nano’s build quality is to blame for the Hyundai Venue’s extensive damage. But is that correct?
All modern cars’ crumple zones are designed to fold down in order to absorb as much energy as possible during a collision. The safe zone, which is placed between these two crumple zones, is designed to remain intact even in severe collisions, safeguarding the occupants. This safety attitude is built into all Suzuki cars.
Modern automobiles are outfitted with crumple zones, which act as the first line of defence in the event of an accident. These zones are designed to absorb energy during a crash by crumpling readily, ensuring passenger safety. The cabin, on the other hand, is built to endure collisions and not crumple readily, preventing passengers from being crushed in the event of a collision.
The crumple zones may be too small for the Tata Nano, which scored a zero star in the Global NCAP test. The impact of a crash is passed to the passengers sitting within the vehicle in automobiles with narrow crumple zones.
Furthermore, cars without crumple zones may sustain more damage than appears from the exterior. While there isn’t much obvious damage to the Tata Nano, we’re almost positive that the crash caused chassis damage. Whereas pieces in the Hyundai Venue can be replaced to make it drivable and roadworthy again, chassis damage might cause the entire vehicle to misalign. It renders it undriveable even after repairs.
So, the next time you see an accident in which one automobile is more damaged than the other, consider the crumple zones and how they helped to save the passengers.
