It is inherent in the architecture of a vehicle that the sides tend to be particularly exposed in the event of a collision. Our engineers rose to this challenge and came up with PRE-SAFE® Impulse Side. When a side collision is identified as being unavoidable, the newly developed system controls the in ation of air chambers in the seat’s side bolster. This takes place in a fraction of a second. As a preventive measure, the occupants can be moved towards the centre of the vehicle, thus increasing their distance from the door.
