Proactive Occupant Protection System

The proactive occupant protection system uses the sensors from the ESP and the Front Assist ambient traffic monitoring system to detect critical situations with elevated accident potential.
If the system detects such a situation, the vehicle occupants and the vehicle are prepared for a possible accident:

  • The front seat belts in use are tensioned to securely hold both the driver and the passenger.
  • Open windows and the sunroof are closed to just a crack.

If a safe condition is restored and the vehicle has been stabilised, the front seat belts are relaxed. The side windows and the sunroof can be returned to their original positions.
