In its latest safety ratings published today, Euro NCAP awarded the all-new Opel Grandland X compact SUV (Sport Utility Vehicle) the maximum five stars, based on good assessments in the four safety areas adult occupant protection, child occupant protection, pedestrian protection and safety assist.
Euro NCAP also tested the optional Automatic Emergency Braking system, which Grandland X customers can order on top of the standard safety equipment. According to Euro NCAP, the system performed well in the tests.
As well as Automatic Emergency Braking, the Opel Grandland X offers additional first-class assistance and safety systems. Driver Drowsiness Alert, for example, can detect typical signs of fatigue and remind drivers to take regular breaks during long journeys. Opel’s new challenger in the hotly contested SUV market also delivers optimum nighttime visibility without dazzling others. The optional AFL LED headlamps produce a bright white light that effectively turns night into day and automatically adapt to the driving situation.
Peace of mind for Grandland X drivers is available from Opel OnStar. In addition to offering services such as Stolen Vehicle Assistance or a Wi-Fi Hotspot for outstanding connectivity, the personal connectivity and service assistant can help tired drivers find a carpark or book a hotel room . If an emergency should occur, the “guardian angel” automatically responds to crashes, connecting vehicle occupants to a helpful advisor, not a machine.
