“We’re gratified with the outstanding safety rating the Ibiza and Arona have achieved in Latin NCAP’s demanding tests, and it emphasised our committment to guaranteeing the highest level of both active and passive safety in all the models we produce,” said Dr Matthias Rabe, Vice-President for Research and Development at SEAT.
The Ibiza and Arona’s list of standard safety equipment played a huge part in the vehicles achieving Latin NCAP’s highest safety rating. Both cars benefit from six airbags giving occupants both front and lateral protection as well as belt load limiters and pretensioners, while the child restrain systems meet the very highest demands of the Latin American and the Caribbean markets.
Latin NCAP provides consumers with independent, transparent safety information about vehicles available in Latin America. The high-scoring results from the Ibiza and Arona Latin NCAP tests are hugely commendable, because although the tests differ slightly from those run in Europe at Euro NCAP, they have become significantly tougher as market demands for safety features grow.
