All Cayenne models are equipped with full-size front airbags for driver and front passenger as standard. These are augmented by Porsche Side Impact Protection (POSIP).
This comprises a side airbag in each front seat, curtain-type airbags on each side of the roof offering optimum head protection for both rows of seats and side impact protection elements in each door. Side airbags at the rear are also available as an option.
Two impact sensors are located at the front of the car to enable better detection of a head-on collision. The driver and front passenger airbags use a gas generant based on an organic propellant. As a result, the airbags are lighter, more compact and easier to recycle. A roll-over detection system provides additional protection in the event that the car were to overturn. Using sensor-acquired data, it enables early deployment of the curtain airbags and triggers the seat-belt pre-tensioners.
The Cayenne models feature three-point seat belts on all five seats, as well as seat-belt pre-tensioners (front and outer rear seats) and force limiters (front seats only).
The outer rear seats are equipped with ISOFIX mounting points for compatible child seats as standard. These are available as an option for the front passenger seat.
Our ongoing development of the lightweight steel body is a decisive factor in the enhanced passive safety and unparalleled rigidity of the Cayenne body.
In the event of an accident, a system of side and cross-members at the front of the car helps to channel impact energy in a safe and predetermined manner. The interior is protected by hot-formed super high-strength steel reinforcements, including side intrusion beams in each of the doors.
High strength and consistent deformation properties: two key safety requirements fulfilled by the multiphase steel used throughout the body. Thanks to a safety cage structure made from high-tech steels, the highly resilient passenger cell offers high levels of protection.
