A Mahindra XUV700 crashed into a TamilNadu transport bus
CCTV footage of a Mahindra XUV700 crashing into a TamilNadu transport bus recently surfaced on social media. The video posted by MotoWagon shows a white coloured XUV700 collide head-on into a bus crossing the highway. The SUV couldn’t slow down in time to avoid the impact. However, despite the high speed the SUV was doing, the cabin of the car remained largely undamaged and in one piece, thanks to its bonnet absorbing most of the impact forces. All the passengers in the SUV were also safe, owing to the car’s multiple safety features.
