On the safe side.

PRE-SAFE® Impulse Side can prepare the front occupants for a side-on collision by moving them sideways, thereby reducing the risk of injury.

PRE-SAFE® Impulse Side can prepare the front occupants for a side-on collision by moving them sideways, thereby reducing the risk of injury.

The system uses the air chambers in the side bolsters of the backrests. If the vehicle sensors register that a side-on collision is unavoidable, they inflate in a split second and push the occupants to the side slightly. As a result, the distance between occupant and door is increased to mitigate the subsequent contact with the door panel.
