In terms of child occupancy, however, the Tata Altroz secured a slightly lower three-star rating. The hatchback scored 29 out of 49 for rear-seat child occupancy. This was mainly due to the ISOFIX anchorages coming unlatched during the tests, resulting in the low scoring.

The Tata Altroz is the second ‘made-in-India' product to secure five-star ratings at the Global NCAP; first being the Tata Nexon SUV. The Global NCAP (New Car Assessment Programme) is a strict set of crash tests, which assess the safety rating of various new cars sold globally.
