The CUPRA Formentor has been awarded a 5-star safety rating at the latest Euro NCAP tests.
The Euro NCAP safety test features rigorous assessments to determine how well vehicles perform in certain crash scenarios (frontal, rear and side tests) regarding the safety of the passengers. Areas of the vehicle that are assessed include Adult Occupant Protection, Child Occupant Protection, Vulnerable Road User Protection and Safety Assist features.
The overall scores for each area for the Formentor were:
Adult Occupant Protection: 93%
Child Occupant Protection: 88%
Vulnerable Road Users: 68%
Safety Assist: 80%
It’s the first vehicle from the brand to face the Euro NCAP testing, and with stricter testing in place, it’s a great achievement for CUPRA being awarded a top score.
Dr Werner Tietz, Executive Vice-President for Research and Development at CUPRA and SEAT, said: “CUPRA is taking huge steps as it grows as a standalone brand and facing Euro NCAP’s safety tests for the first time is the next stage in its development. It’s a milestone, but a challenging one, as the safety organisation’s testing regime has changed significantly, but the CUPRA Formentor is designed to rise to the occasion.”
CUPRA has installed a range of safety systems to ensure optimum protection on every journey.
From Autonomous Emergency Braking and Side and Exit Assist to Traffic Sign Recognition, Traffic Jam Assist, Light Assist and Pre-Crash Assist, the Formentor makes every day driving scenarios easier and safer.
The robust exterior design acts as a protective bubble for drivers and passengers, while also featuring detection systems to help protect pedestrians, too.
