Head airbag system

The head airbag system offers even greater safety: it actively protects the head area of the front and rear vehicle occupants in a crash and reduces loads on the cervical vertebrae – advanced safety with effective technology.

Effective protection: the head airbag system protects the head area of the front and rear vehicle occupants in a side impact collision. The system is a valuable complement to the side airbag system. In combination with a correctly worn three-point seat belt, it cushions the impact between the occupant's head and parts of the interior or objects outside the vehicle. The airbag also reduces loads acting on the occupant's neck in a crash.
