Land Rover Frisco in Frisco, Texas is proud to announce that the all new Land Rover Discovery Sport has just been awarded the maximum five star safety rating from Euro NCAP.
Established in 1997, Euro NCAP organizes crash tests and provides motoring consumers with a realistic and independent assessment of the safety performance of some of the most popular cars sold in Europe.
The Discovery Sport features a wide array of cutting-edge safety features, including an all-new pedestrian airbag which is a first in the small-SUV segment. This innovative feature deploys from the upper-rear surface of the bonnet within 60 milliseconds upon detection of a pedestrian impact to reduce the risk of serious pedestrian injury.
The Sport also boasts the Autonomous Emergency Braking system, which uses a digital stereo camera mounted next to the rear view mirror to detect objects that could pose a collision threat, delivering visual and audible warnings and automatically applying the brakes if a collision is imminent.
Murray Dietsch, Director of Land Rover Programs, said: “The vehicle safety team worked tirelessly to ensure that the Discovery Sport delivered levels of safety never before seen in the small SUV segment. We have introduced some cutting edge safety technologies such as the all-new pedestrian airbag and an innovative Autonomous Emergency Braking system, in addition to our tried-and-tested Land Rover safety systems.”
The Discovery Sport also features a number of active and passive safety systems, including Dynamic Stability Control, Electronic Traction Control, Roll Stability Control, Anti-lock Braking Systems, Reverse Traffic Detection, Emergency Brake Lights, Lane Departure Warning and Seatbelt Reminders.
You can also opt for features such as Blind Spot Monitoring with Closing Vehicle Sensing, Active Speed Limiting, Reverse Traffic Detection and Traffic Sign Recognition.
This compact SUV features an unyielding, high-strength steel and boron body shell, with a roof that will support more than 4.5 times the vehicle weight. It also has a comprehensive occupant safety package including driver and passenger airbags, driver knee airbag, and side curtain and thorax airbags.
