The new DS 4 comes equipped with solid crash protection equipment that is common across the segment, including an active bonnet for pedestrian protection and a new centre airbag located between driver and front passenger. The standard camera-only autonomous emergency braking system, however, underwhelmed in the track tests simulating accidents with other vehicles, such as rear-end crashes, resulting in a four star rating overall. To get a performance that is more comparable to its rivals in the segment, consumers must purchase the optional ‘Safety Pack Plus’ that adds a radar sensor. The increased performance of this fusion system is enough to lift the car into five-star territory.

The year was 2006 when Piaggio introduced a vehicle on the market that would forever change the face of urban and metropolitan mobility: Piaggio MP3 was the first and inimitable three-wheeled scooter in the world, with the exclusive patented suspension system that connects them combine the safety of a car with the simplicity and practicality of a scooter and the fun of a dynamic motorcycle ride on a twisty road. Piaggio MP3 created a new market segment where it has remained the undisputed leader, thanks to constant technological development. It is a sixteen year long success story measured by the over 230,000 vehicles sold thus far, but which is even more overwhelming when we consider its popularity with a global and transverse public, from car drivers looking for a more practical and increasingly safer alternative - Piaggio MP3 can be driven with just a car driver's license - to advanced motorcycle riders who are capable of exploiting the advantages and technical features of a unique vehicle.
