Safety and Security

Some safety systems are designed to protect you, your vehicle and other road users in the event of an accident. Others exist to help prevent accidents in the first place. In the New EcoSport you’ll find technologies designed to do both.

Airbags to shield you 

In addition to the driver and passenger front airbags, driver knee airbag, side airbags provide thorax protection and are designed to direct the occupant away from the impact area. They’re also able to raise the arm of the occupant providing better space between them and the intruding structure. Curtain airbags provide maximum coverage and headrests offer protection from whiplash. With front and rear seatbelt pre-tensioners and load limiters, plus seatbelt minders, New EcoSport helps puts your safety first. 

Advanced systems for more controlled braking

Anti-lock braking system (ABS) and electronic brake-force distribution combine to ensure that your braking is effective.

Stay in control whatever the conditions

Electronic Stability Control constantly monitors your vehicle’s progress. It senses when a vehicle is losing grip and automatically applies a braking pulse to individual wheels, helping to stabilise it. Using advanced sensors from the anti-lock braking and Traction Control System it monitors the behaviour of the vehicle.
