POSIP, fitted as standard, consists of side impact protection beams in the doors and two side airbags on each side: an integral thorax airbag is located in each seat side bolster and an upwards-inflating head airbag is incorporated within each door.
Additional safety features include the headrests which form an integral part of each seat, an energy-absorbing steering column, three-point seat belts with pre-tensioners and force limiters and energy-absorbing elements in the dashboard.
We use advanced airbag technology in the form of full-size driver and front passenger airbags, which are inflated in two stages depending on the severity and type of accident (e. g. frontal or offset frontal). In less serious accidents, the airbags are only partially inflated, thereby minimising discomfort to the occupants.
