The Cupra Formentor, the first model designed and developed exclusively by Cupra, has been awarded the maximum five-star safety rating by independent testing organisation, Euro NCAP.

The Formentor is the first vehicle homologated and tested as a Cupra vehicle. It scored highly in all areas including Adult Occupant (93%), Child Occupant (88%), Vulnerable Road User (68%) and Safety Assist (80%).

The use of seven airbags, including a standard front-central airbag, adds to the safety suite the Formentor offers
A suite of safety and convenience technologies make the Cupra Formentor safer to live with on a daily basis. These include Autonomous Emergency Braking, Side and Exit Assist, Traffic Sign Recognition, and Pre-Crash Assist among others. These systems work together to create a protective bubble around the vehicle and its occupants.

Add to these the integration of seven airbags, including a standard front-central airbag, Front Assist with vehicle, pedestrian, cyclist detection, Emergency Steering and Junction Assist, Lane Assist and Emergency e-Call, and the Cupra Formentor stands as one of the safest vehicles available.

The Formentor also faced a series of new tests including the 'moving barrier to moving car frontal crash test'. The new test replaces the moderate off-set deformable barrier test and helps evaluate occupant protection as well as how the vehicle's front structure reacts in a crash scenario.

Euro NCAP has also updated the side impact test, which now includes changes to the near-side barrier test speed and mass making the test even more severe. Additionally, the introduction of far-side impact protection test helps evaluate the interaction between driver and the front seat passenger.
