SEAT ‘guardian angel’ concept can reduce risks and accidents

Developed in line with the city council’s Urban Mobility Plan, which seeks mobility that is safe, efficient, sustainable and equitable, the SEAT Leon Cristobal concept car features a ‘guardian angel’ mode that sees all 15 active and passive safety systems on board activate. It also comes with a built-in breathalyser that blocks drivers who are over the limit from driving.

The rear-view mirror comes with a rear camera to help eliminate blind spots while onboard black box technology records data and images while driving and sends them to a selected Smartphone in the event of an accident.

According to SEAT, road accidents could be cut by 40% if more than half of the vehicles on the road were equipped with the functions included in the Cristobal.
