Airbags work with the seatbelts to reduce the risk of severe head and chest injuries in the event of an accident. If the crash sensors register an impact that exceeds the value needed to trigger the airbags, the airbag control ignites the gas generator.
This inflates the airbags, located in the steering wheel and the dashboard in front of the front-seat passenger, within 30 to 40 milliseconds. When inflated, these airbags cushion the head and upper body and distribute the resulting loads over as large an area as possible. Just 120 milliseconds later, the gas escapes and the airbag collapses.
Isofix is an international standard designed to ensure your child's car seat is fitted easily and securely. Isofix is being adopted worldwide as a safer way to travel with your children.
The Isofix child seat fixes directly into compatible fittings in your car, creating a secure link with no need to use the adult seatbelts. Studies have shown many child car seats are not fitted properly. With Isofix, securing your child's car seat properly is much easier, reducing the risk of injury in an accident.
Driver Alert System (Rest Assist)
Monitors driver behaviour closely - noting any erratic steering wheel movements and lane deviations, for example - so it can judge the moment that you are starting to feel sleepy and need to stop.
It also continually evaluates traffic signals on the road when you are driving at speeds of more than 40mph and works out when it's time to take a break.
If the system detects that you're starting to lose concentration it will alert you with a visual display on the dashboard and a warning sound. If you haven't taken a break within 15 minutes, the system will repeat the warning.
