Where would we be without cars? Stuck at home probably; wherever it is. We certainly wouldn’t arrive on time, that’s for sure. After all, without these immutable machines, there wouldn’t be taxis, Uber or much more than a donkey and a cart to take you to your destination. But that convenience comes with risk, particularly in South Africa where our roads can be dangerous places.
Too often, those looking to purchase a new car forgo much more important features and doodads in favour of eye-candy – sleek eye-catching style – that they’re sure will leave their friends and colleagues green with envy. But forgoing safety can be a fatal mistake.
Should you find yourself in an accident, those safety features you so quickly glossed over could very well save your life. The good news is that in a test by vehicle safety organisation Global NCAP, the TATA Bolt Sedan scored 4 stars out of 5 for its driver and passenger rating.
That’s thanks to ninth generation ABS (anti-lock braking system) and EBD (electronic brakeforce distribution) systems, as well as dual airbags and cornering stability control, which is useful for keeping you glued to the road on sudden, blind or hairpin corners. It’s a good thing too because it’s easy to get a little carried away when you’ve got performance as thrilling as this at your every command.
The even better news is, well… look at it. Not only does it excel at keeping you and your passengers safe, but it does so while turning heads – would you just look at those curves! A car like that will speak volumes about your incredible sense of style. It’s as if the TATA Bolt Sedan was designed to add zest to your driving experience without compromising on the important things – your life, and the lives of your loved ones. And it manages to do all of this without breaking the bank!
