Passive Safety

Passive Safety

Passive safety refers to all design measures taken to protect you and your passengers from injury, or to reduce the risk of injury. It refers particularly to what happens in the event of a collision and includes the protection of other road users (partner protection).

Besides the seat belt system, the most important passive safety features in our cars include the airbags, the "deformation-resistant" occupant cell and the front and rear deformation zones. These provide a substantial amount of protection for you and your passengers by dissipating the impact energy. Taken together with the active safety aspects, all Volkswagen models offer outstanding all-round protection.
