2014 Seat Leon ST gets five-star safety rating from Euro NCAP

Article by Anita Panait, on September 20, 2013

Euro NCAP has awarded the Seat Leon ST with a five-star safety rating, placing the small station wagon among the safest cars on the road. The Seat Leon ST joins the Leon five-door hatchback as a five-star car. The five-star rating came after the Seat Leon ST gained exceptional scores in all areas of the industry-standard Euro NCAP test, particularly in the adult occupant safety part (94 percent) and child occupant safety section (92 percent).

Helping the Seat Leon ST achieve such high child occupant score are features like front passenger airbag deactivation that facilitates installation of a rear-facing child seat. Also helping the small station wagon get high safety scores are the extensive use of high strength and ultra-high strength steels in key areas of the chassis.

The Leon ST also received two Euro NCAP Advanced awards -- for its lane-keeping assistant and multi-collision brake systems. Dr. Matthias Rabe, Executive Vice-President for Research and Development at Seat SA, remarked that the carmaker is committed to the “highest levels of active and passive safety in all its models.

He quipped that “excellent classification” achieved by both new Leon variants has rewarded the “thorough development work” done at their Technical Centre. Rabe also expressed pleasure for the two Euro NCAP Advanced rewards for the SEAT multi-collision brake system and the SEAT lane-keeping assistant.
