Jaguar E-Pace Secures Five Star safety ratings is as expected. The model will soar the charts with its design and compact concept in the Indian market most likely
The new Jaguar E-PACE has achieved a five-star Euro NCAP rating that confirms the hotly anticipated vehicle as among the safest on the market. Jaguar’s first compact SUV keeps everyone safe with high scores of 86% for adult occupant protection, 87% for child occupant protection and 77% for pedestrian protection. The E-PACE scored maximum points in the side barrier, as well as in the side and the frontal offset tests for child occupants. In the pedestrian tests, E-PACE scored highly, particularly for the protection of a pedestrian’s head in the event of a collision.
E-PACE features a comprehensive suite of standard safety systems, including Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection. The advanced technology is able to detect a collision risk with cars or pedestrians on the road ahead and automatically apply the brakes.Safety is one of the core customer principles. The E-PACE will bring new customers to the Jaguar brand, particularly young families, so safety is an absolute priority. By pairing advanced crash protection with active safety systems, E-PACE helps prevent accidents while providing superior passenger safety in the event of a collision.
Advanced driver assistance systems available on the Jaguar E-PACE include:
> Autonomous Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection: provides an audible forward collision warning and should the driver not take action, applies the brakes to help reduce the severity of a collision or prevent it
> Matrix-Laser LED headlights: use Intelligent High Beam Assist (IHBA) and Adaptive Front Lighting (AFL) to split the main beam into imperceptible vertical strips that maximise the light around oncoming traffic while casting a shadow in front of oncoming vehicles to prevent dazzling
> Lane Keep Assist: detects unintentional lane drift and applies corrective counter-steering to maintain lane position
> Driver Condition Monitor: senses driver fatigue by monitoring steering, brake and accelerator inputs to provide alerts when tiredness is detected
> Adaptive Cruise Control with Queue Assist: automatically reduces speed should the vehicle ahead slow down and, once the road ahead is clear, will resume its pre-set speed
> Pedestrian Airbag: deploys an exterior airbag in the event of a collision to protect pedestrians and cyclists from contact with the bonnet and windscreen
> Reverse Traffic Monitor: warns the driver of vehicles, pedestrians or other hazards approaching from either side of the vehicle, providing audio and visual alerts
> Blind Spot Assist: alerts the driver to vehicles in, or fast approaching, the blind spot with a flashing warning light and will guide the car safely away if the vehicle begins to change lanes
