Although i maintain safe speeds i have the habit of pushing the car around corners and swift lane changes.
Secondly the visibility in Ford Ecosport and lack of ISOFIX mounts , seat belt pretensioners in JAZZ is keeping me in a confusing situation. Yaris CVT was rock solid , however the engine whine gets quite annoying even on partial inputs and the ergonomic night mare with the hand rest has removed it from my shortlist
How fast do you drive?
I don't think it will be an issue upto 140~160KMPH.
With nexon being a heavy vehicle, generally tyres will leave traction/Grip or Skid out way before vehicle tips over. Even the much Taller/Heavier XUV does not tip over.
Carving corners is not a function of any SUV for that matter. A low slung sports sedan works best in those situations. Lane changes should have no issues.
