Occupant Cell

Occupant Cell

The occupant cell is the space in your car containing the driver and passengers. It forms a rigid safety cage and in contrast to the body’s deformation zones, or crumple zones, it is not easily deformed and is therefore able to keep the survival space of the occupants intact in an accident. We use measures such as crash tests to continually improve the safety of our occupant cells.
