The main purpose of airbags, in tandem with the seat belts, is to prevent the occupants’ bodies from coming into contact with any rigid parts of the car, or at least to minimise the consequences of any such contact.
The driver is protected by a front airbag mounted in the steering wheel. The front passenger’s front airbag is located in the dashboard.
Side airbags in the front seats protect the thorax and pelvis of both the driver and passenger in case of a side impact.
Backseat passengers also benefit from the protection afforded by side airbags.
Curtain airbags cover the window area and the car’s inner structure from the A-pillar to the C-pillar. They protect the heads of occupants in both the front and rear seats, thus guaranteeing maximum safety.
Rear-seat Isofix anchoring points enable child seats to be installed better in the vehicle and provide better attachment to the car’s body. Isofix anchoring points may also be fitted on the front passenger seat. Further anchoring points in the luggage compartment can be used to install a child seat using the TopTether system.
A subtle detail to help you leave your car safely. Every time you open the front doors, the safety reflectors or lights warn other traffic participants that you are about to step out of your car, so you can rest assured they will avoid you and your car door.
