Airbags on driver's side
To supplement the protection afforded by the seatbelt on the driver side, the car is equipped with two airbags.
Side airbag (SIPS)
In a side impact collision a large proportion of the collision force is transferred by the SIPS (Side Impact Protection System) to beams, pillars, the floor, the roof and other structural parts of the body. The side airbags at the driver's and front passenger seats protect the chest area and the hip and are an important part of the SIPS.
Pedestrian airbag* - folding up
Pedestrian airbag (Pedestrian Airbag) must be folded up before the car is moved.
To supplement the protection afforded by the seatbelt on the passenger side, the car is equipped with an airbag.
In the event of a frontal collision the airbag system helps to protect the head, face and chest of the driver and passenger.
Pedestrian airbag* - moving the car
The car may be moved if it has not been set in safety mode.
The airbag for pedestrians (Pedestrian Airbag) contributes in certain frontal collisions to alleviating the collision of the pedestrian with the car.
Passenger airbag - activating/deactivating*
Front passenger airbag can be deactivated if the car is equipped with a switch, PACOS (Passenger Airbag Cut Off Switch).
