ITS head airbag

The Inflatable Tubular Structure (ITS) head airbag and the side airbags, which both come as part of the standard fittings, combine to provide excellent side impact protection for the car's occupants. If hit from the side, ITS head airbags safeguard against the dangerous effect by which the occupants' heads are flung to one side and hit off the door (hyperflexion) and it prevents injury caused by objects entering the car.

The sides of these airbags are integrated with the frame of the roof and inflate instantly thanks to their honeycomb structure. When expanded, they cover the safety belt's height adjuster and front side windows diagonally, thereby delivering the best protection irrespective of the occupant's size or position in their seat.
