New SsangYong Korando scores five out of five stars in Euro NCAP crash test
Drivers are on the safe side in the new SsangYong Korando: The fourth model generation of the compact SUV scores five out of five stars in the Euro NCAP crash test. The top rating underscores the high level of safety, which is due to the advanced assistance systems and the high rigidity of the new edition. The independent testing organization rates the protection of adult occupants at 88 percent and that of children at 85 percent - two top values. In both a frontal crash and a side impact, the driver and other passengers are well protected. Seven airbags reduce the risk of injury in the event of an accident, including a knee airbag for the driver. The equally good pedestrian protection is mainly due to the automatic emergency braking system, which reliably detects cyclists and pedestrians in addition to other road users. In any case, the new Korando impresses with numerous camera- and radar-based "Deep Control" safety systems that support the driver in everyday driving and point out potential hazards. In addition to the automatic emergency braking system, a lane departure warning system and a lane change assistant are available, as well as a drowsiness and traffic sign recognition system and an exit assistant. It warns the driver of vehicles approaching from behind when the door is opened. The high-beam assistant, which is also offered, also switches automatically between high and low beams, thus increasing visibility and visibility at night.
2020 comes to and end and, despite the circumstances, it has been a year of celebrations for SEAT as the company celebrated its 70th anniversary. From the 9th of May 1950 until today, the brand that put Spain on wheels and democratised mobility has undergone a profound transformation and has demonstrated a constant capacity for reinvention. Over the past 70 years, the carmaker has launched a total of 75 models, including different versions and generations, among which some major ones that have marked a turning point. Starting in 1953 with the SEAT 1400, the first car manufactured by the company, or with the legendary SEAT 600, which was presented in 1957 and soon became a symbol of freedom and mobility. In 1984 the first SEAT Ibiza arrived and in 1999 the SEAT Leon, which has been a sales success since its launch. 2016 was also a remarkable year: the company entered the SUV segment with the SEAT Ateca, which was then followed by the SEAT Arona and the SEAT Tarraco.
