All Panamera models are fitted, as standard, with full-size driver and front passenger airbags. Depending on the severity and type of accident, they are inflated in two stages. In less serious accidents, the airbags are only partially inflated, thereby minimising discomfort to the occupants.
As well as knee airbags for driver and front passenger, the Porsche Side Impact Protection System (POSIP) is also fitted as standard.
This comprises side airbags in the front seats, curtain airbags along the entire roof frame and the side windows from the A-pillar to the C-pillar, and side impact protection elements in the doors. Side airbags in the rear compartment are available as an option. Also featured as standard are an energy-absorbing steering column, automatic three-point seat belts, belt height adjustment and seat belt force limiters in the front, and seat belt pretensioners front and rear. A rollover sensor automatically activates the curtain airbags and seat belt pretensioners if the vehicle threatens to overturn.
