Volvo V40 - a car with the world's first airbag for pedestrians

The Volvo V40 features newly developed Pedestrian Airbag Technology, which is a world first. Sensors in the front bumper register the physical contact between the car and the pedestrian. The rear end of the bonnet is released and at the same time elevated by the deploying airbag. The inflated airbag covers the area under the raised bonnet plus approximately one third of the windscreen area and the lower part of the A-pillar.
