ES UN EXAMEN de los difíciles, el de Latin NCAP, división para América Latina de la organización europea, que promueve pruebas independientes de seguridad de vehículos que circulan por el mundo.

Ha evaluado el organismo a 8 autos, entre los que el nuevo Ford Fiesta obtuvo la mejor puntuación en seguridad. Recibió 4 estrellas sobre un total de 5, relacionadas a aspectos de seguridad para adultos y niños; fue la mejor puntuación entre los coches evaluados lo que sirvió para demostrar la eficiencia de sus sistemas de protección.

Fue la tercera fase de pruebas publicadas por Latin NCAP (Programa de Evaluación de Autos Nuevos para América Latina). Todos los vehículos evaluados fueron sometidos a un choque frontal contra un obstáculo deformable a 64 km/h, simulando una coalición con otro auto. El nuevo Fiesta si hablamos de proteger a los chicos, dispone de un alto nivel de protección, habiendo logrado la calificación de 4 estrellas en la región. «La utilización del sistema de retención infantil con ISOFIX desempeñó un rol fundamental en reducir la probabilidad de instalación incorrecta y mejorar el desempeño dinámico en general. Latin NCAP recomienda ISOFIX y alienta a los gobiernos, fabricantes y proveedores de la región, a apoyar el sistema ISOFIX basado en la reglamentación de las Naciones Unidas R44″, dice el informe de Latin NCAP.

En cuanto a la seguridad que fue contemplada para el auto, cuenta con un sistema avanzado e integrado, que comienza con una estructura robusta y moderna de carrocería. Gracias a sus barras de acero, ultra-reforzadas de carbono distribuidas en áreas críticas, el vehículo obtiene una mayor y mejor resistencia del habitáculo en situaciones de impacto. Agrega dos airbag frontales y la opción de dos airbags laterales, dos de cortina y uno para rodillas de conductores.

A su vez, posee sensores de seguridad de carga de pasajeros y un sistema de clasificación de ocupantes que sirve para identificar, por ej., si el acompañante es un niño o un adulto, y poder así regular la severidad de impacto y optimizar la respuesta de los cinturones y los airbags. Si hablamos de seguridad activa, el nuevo Fiesta es el primero en recibir la exigente clasificación “Top Safety Pick» en EE.UU; dispone de avanzados sistemas de seguridad activa combinados para otorgar un control sin precedentes y evitar accidentes. Además de contar con frenos ABS, es el único en su categoría equipado con control electrónico de tracción y estabilidad.

  1. Ya me borraron el comentario anterior sobre el flojo resultado del Sandero. No les da vergüenza firmar un parte de prensa de Ford como sí fuera una nota?

  2. allows this seat to be installed 3-across in a velihce. The construction is very strong and durable, composed of both heavy plastic as in most car seats and aluminum framing in certain places.The straps are all adjustable of course, and this was the fastest part of setup for me, in contrast to many other car seats that make you remove covers and padding and whatnot; this was very straightforward to adjust to our toddler’s height. A nice feature that complements the adjustable shoulder straps is the tensioner at the front of the seat which ratchets rather than just pulls, so you don’t risk getting it too tight all at once when fitting it to your child.It’s a big plus to have a seat that you can take your baby home from the hospital in and not have to buy another seat until they’re big enough to not need one any longer, so I was looking forward to installing it and trying it out.Installation:Installing the Radian RXT turned out to be very challenging with our two velihces that I tried it in. The big disclaimer here is that unfortunately we don’t have a modern SUV or minivan, so installation was doubtless more difficult than it would have been had we had one. I first tried installing it in our 2000 Isuzu Rodeo, which unfortunately does not have a LATCH system, and after struggling with it for about 30 minutes and reading the directions over and over, ultimately had to give up. The design of the seat is such that the belt path under the seat is a closed tunnel, which first of all means you need small hands to be able to thread the belts through, which wanted to get hung up inside. But once I got the seat belt through, a larger obstacle cropped up. Because the belt tunnel is so low and closed off from the top (unlike a traditional car seat base), I was unable to tighten the belt enough because the car buckle of course cannot bend around the angle of the tunnel. This was with the rear-facing base attachment properly secured, but it was still as if the belt tunnel was too low to be able to tighten the belt enough. Compounding this in a car without a LATCH system is the fact that you have to secure the belt clip and then fasten the seat belt. However, with the Radian, there was absolutely no way once I secured the belt clip to snake the tightened belt back through the tunnel and clip it into the buckle since you usually have to have lots of leverage to do that, and I’m sorry, but my fingertips just aren’t strong enough to manage that.So, on to option two, the BMW 3-series sedan. It’s a 2001, so it does have a LATCH system fortunately. However, given the size of the Radian RXT, I found it couldn’t be installed behind the driver’s seat, which is where the current car seat goes, because the high headrest of the Radian would have meant that the drivers seat would have had to go forward too far for anyone except a little person. I’m sure it would have worked okay forward-facing, but we can’t do that until the baby is bigger.So I finally got it installed on the passenger side of the car, but seemed to have a similar problem tightening the LATCH straps, due to the belt tunnel seeming too low. But in actuality, when tightened down as absolutely as I could, the manual says that when gripped at the tunnel, the seat should not move more than an inch in any direction, which it doesn’t. However, it didn’t seem right at first because shaking the seat from the headrest resulted in a lot of play. I guess this is to be expected since there’s lots of leverage there, it’s just that the Help other customers find the most helpful reviewsa0Was this review helpful to you?a0 | a0
