SEAT Alhambra – Crash & Safety Tests 2019

The passenger compartment remained stable in the frontal offset test. Dummy readings indicated good protection of the knees and femursof the driver and passenger. A similar level of protection would be provided to occupants of different sizes and to those sitting in differentpositions. In the full-width rigid barrier test, protection of all critical body areas was good for the driver. However, for the rear passenger,dummy readings indicated a marginal level of protection for the chest. A penalty was also applied as a result of high shoulder belt forcesand protection of the chest was rated as poor. In the side barrier impact, all critical body areas were well protected and the car scoredmaximum points in this test. In the more severe side pole test, protection of the chest was adequate and that of other body areas wasgood. However, the side door of the car became detached during the test and the score was penalised for the risk of occupant ejection.Tests on the front seats and head restraints demonstrated good protection against whiplash injuries in the event of a rear-end collision. Ageometric assessment of the rear seats indicated marginal whiplash protection. The standard-fit autonomous emergency braking (AEB)system performed adequately in tests of its functionality at the low speeds at which many whiplash injuries occur.
