• Outstanding rating for a unsentimental Leon estate
• Five stars for child reserve as good as insurance of adults
• High reserve turn combines ideally with bland usability and
  family-friendly values

SEAT Leon STTesting organization Latin NCAP (New Car Assessment Programme) has awarded a SEAT Leon ST a tip five-star rating in a new test. The Latin American consumer insurance physique has so arguable a superb outcome reached by a European colleagues during Euro NCAP, that awarded a Leon ST Estate and a five-door Leon with five-star ratings in progressing testing. The high reserve level, quite in child protection, fits ideally with a family-friendly attributes and glorious bland usability of a SEAT Leon ST and also a whole Leon range.

In collision reserve for adult passengers, really good formula were achieved for both motorist and front chair passenger. Latin NCAP also judged that a airbags supposing good conduct protection. The car structure was fast and withstood even high loads. Child reserve was tested with dual dummies analogous to a 3 year-old and an eleven-and-a-half year-old child. The organization judged that they, too, were good stable in an accident. Full points were also awarded for a elementary and arguable designation of child seats. Latin NCAP combined a certain acknowledgement that a newcomer airbag could be definitively deactivated to capacitate designation of a rearward-facing child seat, with a airbag standing displayed to a driver.

“SEAT is committed to pledge a top turn of active and pacifist reserve in all a models,” stresses Dr. Matthias Rabe, Vice President for Research and Development for SEAT S.A. “We are therefore intensely confident with a superb ratings achieved by all a variations of a new Leon in a perfectionist tests conducted by a NCAP organization in Europe and Latin America.”

The SEAT Leon comes as customary with a extensive package of reserve equipment. Alongside a electronic fortitude programme with anti-lock system, this includes 7 airbags with a conduct airbag complement front and back and a knee airbag for a motorist (option in Latin America). The SEAT multi-collision stop automatically slows down a car after a vicious collision in sequence to waste a remaining kinetic energy. If a airbag is deployed by a initial collision, a electronic fortitude programme brakes a vehicles and activates a jeopardy lights.

A array of discretionary assistance systems delivers serve reserve improvements. The SEAT lane-keeping partner uses a camera in a front windscreen to brand lines on a carriageway and responds with visible steering submit in a eventuality a car threatens to leave a lane. The fatigue showing complement analyses a driver’s steering characteristics, invariably evaluating signals such as steering angle and steering speed. The fatigue showing registers decrease in motorist concentration, emits an acoustic vigilance and displays a pitch to suggest holding a break.

Front Assist including city puncture braking duty can equivocate a risk of collisions by regulating a radar sensor to guard a trade in front of a vehicle. If a complement identifies a vicious risk of a rear-end collision during speeds of ca. 30 to 210 km/h, a partner provides a motorist with an acoustic and visible warning and primes a stop complement for a probable braking manoeuvre. If necessary, a complement automatically triggers braking – that can revoke a speed of a successive collision. During braking itself, “Front Assist” aids a motorist and ensures – if required – that limit braking force is applied. “Front Assist” can so make a vital grant to safeguarding occupants and vehicle. The “city puncture braking function” can conflict with an puncture braking stratagem during a final notation before a rear-end collision during speeds of between 5 and 30 km/h.
