Crumple zones

Crumple zones are part of the tough safety shell around your car, helping to protect you and your passengers in the event of an accident. To further enhance safety, SEAT cars include crumple zones at the front and rear of the shell.

Crumple zones are designed to absorb impact energy during a collision so that most energy is dissipated across these zones, and not in the passenger compartment. The strong outer shell comes with front and rear crumple zones that help to absorb the impact of a crash, increasing the safety of the car's occupants.
