All Macan models feature full-size airbags for the driver and passenger as standard. These are augmented by Porsche Side Impact Protection (POSIP). This comprises a side airbag in each front seat, curtain airbags along each roof frame and the side windows from the A to the C pillar, as well as side impact protection elements in each door. Side airbags in the rear are also optionally available. Two additional sensors in the bumper area enable better detection in the event of a frontal collision. A sensor cluster comprising an acceleration and yaw velocity sensor detects an imminent roll-over and automatically activates the curtain airbags and seat-belt pretensioners.
