Dual-Diagonal Brake System

For safety reasons, the hydraulic brake system is divided into two independent brake circuits. Two diagonally opposite wheels form one brake circuit. This means that each brake circuit acts on one front wheel and the diagonally opposite rear wheel.

If one of the circuits fails, the second ensures residual braking. This stabilises the car and prevents spinning by means of a negative scrub radius.

All SEAT models feature a diagonal dual-circuit braking system.
