GAZELLE NEXT VAN
Safety above all
Increased stabilityActive safety indicators were improved by 8-10% (compared to European counterparts) for safe maneuvering in emergency situations in the new Next model. Suchv result was achieved thanks to altered kinematics of the front suspension with the new characteristics of shock absorbers.
Braking pathBraking path of Next is 5% shorter than the European counterparts, and the pedal force is 1.5 kg less than its peers’. The area of brake pads in new front brakes was increased by 50%.
Seat beltsComfortable seat belts of a new design from TAKATA company allow to buckle up drivers and passengers even in bulky winter clothes. Next comes complete with a new ABS system of the 9th generation of Bosch company. In perspective, it is possible to equip Next with ESP system.
Improved visibilityLarger mirrors (+30%) with electric heating were installed, viewing angle was increased and “dead zones” were minimized in order to improve visibility in Next model. Reliable concealed fixing and mirror aerodynamics reduce contamination of side windows. Two-point design of mirror affixment increases stiffness and reduces vibration.
HIGH LEVEL OF PASSIVE SAFETY
- Strengthening of struts and side bars.
- Improved visibility.
- Improved visibility in the dark.
Parameters of the suspension system ideally suited for Russian conditions were optimally selected to ensure comfort and safety drive. Protection of the driver and passengers is ensured by the increased body rigidity and thanks to the fact that the design of power elements of the vehicle cab includes programmable crumple zones which ensure safety in case of a frontal impact (Соmau and Magna companies participated in the design development).
