SEAT Leon - Crash & Safety Tests 2020

Description

The all-new SEAT Leon has been awarded a five-star safety rating from testing organisation Euro NCAP. The result is a demonstration of the work completed during the Leon’s development to create a car that delivers one of the safest vehicles on the market, especially as Euro NCAP’s testing methods have become even more challenging in 2020.A key change for 2020 Euro NCAP’s testing procedures is the introduction of the moving barrier to moving car frontal crash test, replacing the moderate offset-deformable barrier test. The test helps the organisation to evaluate the protection of occupants inside the car, but also assesses how the cars’ front-end structurers contribute to.That isn’t the only change in the testing procedure. Side impacts have been updated to include adjustments to the near-side barrier test speed and mass, increasing the severity of the test. And for the first time Euro NCAP evaluates far-side impact protection, focusing on driver protection and the potential interaction between driver and front seat passenger.

  • Audi A3 - Crash & Safety Tests 2020

    The Audi A3 Sportback, SEAT Leon, ISUZU D-Max, Kia Sorento and Land Rover Defender achieve the maximum five stars. The Honda e settles for four stars and the Hyundai i10 gets three.Both the new Audi A3 Sportback and SEAT Leon sit on the same MQB-II platform as last year?s Golf VIII but now feature a centre airbag to improve far-side impact protection. When it comes to safety, the VW group siblings are in no way inferior to their famous cousin, but it is the Leon that, thanks to more compatible front-end design, has the upper hand with a very creditable 92 percent for Adult Occupant Protection.

  • Cupra Leon - Crash & Safety Tests 2020

    The CUPRA Leon not only offers contemporary performance, it is also one of the safest vehicles on the market: after the CUPRA Formentor, the brand's compact car has now also received a five-star rating and thus the top rating in the more stringent Euro NCAP test procedure.The CUPRA Leon achieved high scores in all areas for both the model variants with combustion engine and the plug-in hybrid variants: occupant protection for adults 91 percent, for children 88 percent; Protection of vulnerable road users 71 percent and 80 percent with the assistance systems. Regardless of the engine, every CUPRA Leon has very good prerequisites for making a contribution to more safety in road traffic.The excellent result in the test is no coincidence. The CUPRA Leon can come up with a whole range of safety and comfort technologies. These include the Autonomous Emergency Brake Assistant (AEB), traffic sign recognition, the traffic jam assistant, the light assistant and the pre-crash assistant. In addition, seven airbags including a standard central front airbag, Front Assist with vehicle, pedestrian and cyclist detection, the emergency steering assistant as well as the intersection assistant, the lane departure warning system and the eCall emergency call system make the CUPRA Leon one of the safest vehicles currently available on the market .The CUPRA Leon follows the CUPRA Formentor, which also achieved the top grade. The security organization Euro NCAP revises its test procedures every two years and, thanks to the adjustments made in the past year, it is more stringent than ever before.

  • Hyundai i10 - Crash & Safety Tests 2020

    Honda?s new electric supermini, the Honda e, represents the state of the art for green driving. It lacks some of the more advanced safety features present in the Honda Jazz but produces a respectable four-star rating in Euro NCAP?s latest tests, nevertheless. The more conventional Hyundai i10 brings up the rear in this batch of tests. In the full-width frontal impact, the driver?s pelvis slipped under the lap belt, a phenomenon known as ?submarining?. The Hyundai i10 also offers a more limited AEB functionality then some other small cars, and ends up with three stars overall.

  • Isuzu D-Max - Crash & Safety Tests 2020

    The ISUZU D-MAX pick-up was rated by partner Australasian NCAP earlier this year. Some tests have been repeated by Euro NCAP to ensure a valid rating for the European market. Competing in a segment that is not famous for highlighting safety, the D-MAX crew cab is impressively equipped, with standard restraints, AEB and a new centre airbag. However, the mobile progressive deformable barrier test showed that its weight and front structure make the pick-up aggressive to other vehicles in a collision. The same is true of the Land Rover Defender: larger and heavier than previous models, the new Defender is equipped with modern driver-assistance systems to prevent and mitigate, as far as possible, collisions with other road-users. Another heavy-weight, the KIA Sorento, is the 4th generation large off-roader tested by Euro NCAP. It comes with new safety updates, including KIA?s first centre airbag and advanced e-Call system, and thanks to these retains its 5 stars, despite its underwhelming performance in the frontal offset crash.
