The two full-size airbags can be inflated in two stages, depending on the severity of the impact. In a low-speed crash, the airbags are only partially inflated, thereby minimising discomfort to the occupants.
POSIP, fitted as standard, consists of side impact protection beams in the doors and two side airbags on each side, namely a thorax airbag located in the side of each backrest and a head airbag incorporated within each door. Each airbag has an approximate volume of 8 litres, ensuring excellent protection in the event of side impact.
Additional safety features include the headrests which form an integral part of each seat, an energy-absorbing steering column, three-point seat belts with height adjustment (Coupés only), seat belt pre-tensioners and force limiters and energy-absorbing elements in the dashboard.
