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 (Pedestrain Airbag) must be folded up before the car is moved.
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).
Side airbag (SIPS) - child seat/booster cushion
The protection provided by the car to children seated in a child seat or on a booster cushion is not diminished by the side airbag.
