The two rear outer seats can be fitted with a unique safety feature: Rear Inflatable Seatbelts. This technology combines an airbag with a belt, and in the event of an impact, the belts inflate. This spreads the crash forces over five times more area of the body than conventional seat belts. By reducing pressure on the chest and better controlling head and neck movement, this innovative technology is designed to reduce the likelihood of injury.
How does it work?
When the vehicle’s crash sensors detect an impact, a highly compressed mixture of argon and helium gas is released from a small tank stored under the seat. A different inflation system has been used to a conventional airbag for safety reasons, as the gases would be too hot to be close to the chest. The gas circulates through a special buckle into the belt, which results in the airbag bursting through the belt and fully inflating in a matter of milliseconds. Therefore, there is less strain on the chest and the body is supported better. It is highly beneficial for passengers in the rear seats who are often children, as the pressure of a seatbelt on their chest can be too intense.
Seat belt reminder system
This feature helps keep your rear passengers safe and secure, while you're on the move. If any of the seats in use don't have their belts fastened, it gives you an audible and visual warning.
