Iran Khodro is getting ready to produce and launch its latest product, Tara, whose advertising campaign is maneuvering on issues such as crash testing and high safety of this product. Although car companies set up advertising camps to showcase their achievements, Iran Khodro’s published video on Tara safety is somewhat exploratory because, as technical evidence shows, the Tara platform is essentially a significant improvement over the parent car (Peugeot). 301) has not experienced.
As you know, with the return of sanctions on the automotive industry, Peugeot provided the platform of products that were to be produced in Iran to the Iranian side. One of these products was Peugeot 301, which is based on the FP1 platform of Peugeot and Citroen, and in fact Tara is the Iranian version of Peugeot 301.
Tara with almost the same specifications and equipment of Peugeot 301 with high internalization is going to reach the consumer.
Apart from the quantitative and qualitative discussion and even the pricing of Tara, Iran Khodro publishes crash tests from different directions of Tara, which Peugeot 301 was able to do in 2014. Euro Encap crash test With 3 safety stars out of 5 stars and all its images are available and published.
The facelifted model of this product is also in Latin Encap Test He has passed the safety test again by receiving 3 stars.
But another important point is the end of the validity of the Peugeot 301 Euro Encap crash test.
Euronext is constantly improving its safety indicators, and since the Peugeot 301 passed the crash test in 2014, its validity expired in January 2021.
The important and basic point of this accident test is to equip the Peugeot 301 with 4 airbags Iran Khodro by removing 2 airbags in the manual gear model It is enough to supply this product with 2 front passenger and driver airbags. Therefore, it can be assumed that in case of repeating the crash test with the 2014 standards, due to the reduction of the number of airbags and the removal of side airbags, achieving 3 safety stars for Tara seems a bit unlikely.
More interestingly, in the Latin Encap test, the word “unstable” was clearly used for the car body. In this crash test, the Peugeot 301 received only 9.5 points out of a possible 16 points from the front collision, but it is in a better position in the side collision and received a score of 13.25 out of a possible 16 points. Lateral (similar to Tara) چنین Certainly not such a result.
It is worth mentioning that the examined model of Peugeot 301 was equipped with isofix, SBR, ABS and ESC, which in this respect seems to be the same as the features of Tara Iran-Khodro.
With this account, it can be concluded that without 4 airbags and according to the crash test rules in 2021, obtaining 3 safety stars for Iran Khodro Tara in the manual transmission version with two airbags seems completely out of reach. Of course, Iran Khodro has not yet claimed the safety of this new product (based on the number of stars).
Another point is that in comparison with other domestically produced cars (such as Dena family, Peugeot 405, Samand, Peugeot 206, etc.), the safety of the platform used in Tara can be evaluated higher, because this platform is basically more modern than the others. And if the quality and technical points are maintained during production, it can give higher safety to the occupants in traffic accidents.
