This is a system developed with the ability to protect all the car occupants from the severity of injuries and reduce damage in the event of any inevitable accident. It includes the rigid SKYACTIV-Body with the help of seatbelts, a ring like structure, pretensioners and load limiters, while the features like anti-intrusion brake pedal, and a full set of SRS Airbags place at the most strategic points to save the sensitive body parts clashing against the hard surface.
