EURO NCAP provides consumer information on the safety of all vehicles currently on the market including SERE Motors own franchises; SEAT, MG Motor UK and SsangYong. They conduct test situations that represent real-life crash scenarios, which then determines a safety rating through their 5 star rating system. You can view the NCAP safety rating of any new vehicle before choosing your new car.
SERE Motors have many cars with high safety ratings and are proud to say that the below cars have been awarded a 5 STAR EURO NCAP Rating, the highest accolade that they can achieve. Click on any of the 5 STAR EURO NCAP rated cars below to see full details:
The technology in our vehicles plays a massive part in the safety of our roads. Modern cars are designed to protect people in the event of a crash and prevent accidents from happening in the first place. Advance Driver Assistance Systems have been developed rapidly in recent years that will identify and even act on safety critical situations.
These recent additions to modern vehicles for example:
AntiLock braking – this feature is designed to stop your car losing traction if you brake sharply, making it less likely for your car to skid.
Electronic Stability Control – when ESC detects loss of steering it automatically applies the brakes to help steering the vehicle.
Autonomous Emergency Braking – this safety technology monitors the road and will automatically brake if the driver fails to respond to a collision threat
Lane Keep Assist – this provides a monitor that will initiate automatic steering to keep the vehicle from departing the road.
Intelligent Speed Assistance – Using GPS- linked speed limit data this feature will advise the driver of their current roads speed limit and provide a warning if their speed falls above this limit.
Front and Rear Parking Sensors –will provide the driver with a warning to alert them of the possibility of a collision.
When thinking of purchasing your next vehicle, remember to look out for some of the features above. Our sales teams at our showrooms in Belfast and Lisburn are fully trained and have many years of automotive expertise to advise you on the features available and the best options to suit your circumstances.
