Five-star performance

The new SEAT Arona has secured a five star safety rating from Euro NCAP.

Euro NCAP’s independent safety tests have become even more stringent in recent months. For example, in order to test child safety protection in a reliable way, crash test dummies are used that simulate children between six and 10 years old. Front impact tests or side impact tests against a pole at 75 degrees are also more severe. As well as these criteria, the range of dummies used in these tests has increased and their biofidelity adapted in order to reflect real accident conditions in the most objective way.

In each of the sections that make up the Euro NCAP safety tests, the new SEAT Arona has achieved excellent results, standing out particularly for occupant and pedestrian protection. Its driver assistance systems also scored highly, particularly regarding brake assist and front assist. Through the use of its radar technology, together with the latest versions of ABS and ESC, it not only senses and acts when it detects other vehicles, but also pedestrians. Taking all of this into account, it allows the car to brake in the safest and quickest way.

The SEAT Arona also comes with pretensioner and load limiter belts in the front and rear seats, which reduce the looseness of the belt around the torso and pelvis of the occupant at the moment of impact, guaranteeing the best restraint for both adults and children. Other standard features include speed limiter, third rear headrest, and seat belt warning system for all seats and six airbags.
