Fig. 74 On the left-hand side of the vehicle: location and deployment zone of the curtain airbag

First read and observe the introductory information and safety warnings

In the interior, a curtain airbag is fitted above the doors on both the driver and front passenger sides  . The airbag location is identified by the text AIRBAG.

The area in the red frame   is covered by the curtain airbag when triggered (deployment zone). For this reason, you must never leave or attach any items in this area.

In a side collision the curtain airbag is triggered on the impact side of the vehicle.

In a side collision, the curtain airbags reduce the risk of injury to the areas of the body facing the impact for vehicle occupants on the front seats and outer rear seats.

WARNING

Once triggered, the airbag inflates at high speed.
