Airbags on driver's side

Updated 7/23/2018

To supplement the protection afforded by the seatbelt on the driver side, the car is equipped with two airbags.

One of the airbags is folded up into the centre of the steering wheel. The steering wheel is marked AIRBAG.

Knee airbag on the driver

Knee airbag on the driver's side in a left-hand-drive car.

The second airbag (at knee level) is fitted in the lower part of the instrument panel on the driver's side; this panel is labelled AIRBAG.


The seatbelts and airbags interact. If the belt is not used or is used incorrectly, this may diminish the protection provided by the airbags in the event of a collision.
