The striking unity of the Flair’s front, sides and rear reflects the very latest in modern automotive design. Accents are provided by the dark A-pillars.
What makes the Flair so unique? Its exceptional lines and the unified design of the front, sides and rear. This distinctive, automotive exterior reflects the latest developments in modern car design.
We manufacture all front and rear sections using highly tear and scratch-resistant glass fibre reinforced plastic (GRP). The benefit of this material is that light scratches can be polished out with Gelcoat paste and minor damage can be easily filled and varnished (spot repair).
The front of the Flair showcases the vehicle’s dynamism with unique daylight indicators, subtle chrome details and the brand logo in the centre — special accents as part of a truly memorable design.
The Flair now includes airbags, ESP and seatbelt pretensioners as standard — for your protection.
An absolute first in the liner class — to ensure optimal protection during an impact, we have installed a driver and passenger airbag. We have ensured the system’s capability via extensive testing and successfully completed crash tests involving both frontal and oblique impacts.
The new bulkhead design meets the highest safety requirements due to its higher stability and stiffness. The partition is constructed from glass fibre reinforced plastic and has been optimised via exhaustive computer simulations.
The Electronic Stability Program (ESP) specifically brakes individual wheels to ensure the vehicle remains safely on course. The ESP on the Flair has been comprehensively tested and will be installed in all models as standard from model year 2018. Also available in combination with the optional air suspension.
In order to provide our liner with a completely insulated interior floor, the entire driver’s cab has been raised onto a platform. The construction consists of aluminium sandwich panels as well as canted steel plates and is specifically designed to handle the loads generated during a crash.
The double floor made from aluminium sandwich panels is screwed, glued and positively interlocked to the side panels on both sides. This results in an extremely stable solution, which scarcely deforms in the event of a crash.
42 per cent lighter — and yet even stiffer. By reinforcing our seat consoles and optimising their weight, we were able to reduce their structural deformation during a crash by 95 per cent. Two built-in arrestor hooks in each seat console provide additional support in the event of an impact.
To provide maximum safety, the seatbelts must restrain the occupants and tighten as early as possible. The integrated seatbelt pretensioners tighten the seatbelt in a fraction of a second to reduce the risk of injury.
Conventional pedals can injure the driver’s legs in the event of a rear-end collision. Our pedal release system drastically reduces this risk — in the event of an impact, the pedals simply fold forwards out of the way.
We have completely redefined safety in liners. The Flair’s exclusive safety concept is quite simply an engineering masterpiece — tailor-made from a single cast. The vehicle has been fundamentally modified to ensure the best possible protection for all occupants. How do you benefit? Through tested and certified safety — proven via numerous, independent crash tests, which the Flair passed with flying colours. We want you to feel safe on every trip.
With a driver and passenger airbag as standard as well as ESP, seatbelt pretensioners and a new chassis, we have created the safest Flair ever. After years of development and countless crash tests, we have revolutionised the safety standard of your premium liner.
The high-quality, fully insulated bus doors, which are integrated into the side skirt, create an integrated look and allow optimal access to the generous storage space and all under-floor equipment. The optional central locking system can be used to lock all the doors, including the garage doors and the main cabin door, via a single button press.
Our idea of using retractable seatbelt supports means a partition wall is completely unnecessary and clears the way for maximum roominess without limits.
Sometimes it’s the simple things in life that give us a certain lightness — in no time at all, the seatbelt supports and seatbelts disappear behind the backrest of the rear seat. Then simply pull out the headrest and stow it away.
