New safety benchmarks include up to 9 airbags to protect passengers in the front and rear seats. Recognised by the Euro NCAP 2009 with the award of five stars.
Technologically, one of the Yeti’s most interesting active safety features is the use of bi-xenon headlamps with LED daytime running lights and curve lighting. These are better at illuminating bends and therefore help the driver to detect hazards more quickly.
The drive assists (ABS, MSR, HBA, EBD, ESBS, ASR, ESC, EDL, AFM and DSR) improve the handling of the vehicle in extreme situations. The brake lights flash during heavy braking and the warning lights are then automatically deployed, providing an urgent warning to the car behind and reducing the risk of rear impact.
