Expanded Safety Requirements

The classic side airbag protects vehicle occupants during an impact on the vehicle's side. The far side airbag offers additional protection for impacts on the occupant's adjacent side, in "far side" accidents. It additionally protects the occupants in one seating row from becoming injured due to occupant-to-occupant interaction. These brand new restraint concepts are able to address approximately a third of all side impact related serious injuries.
