SRS Airbag System
- Safety Technologies
Nissan has vigorously developed a variety of safety technologies to help protect occupants in side collisions. Typical examples include the high-strength Zone Body construction, SRS side airbag systems for the driver and front passenger (also available in the rear seat on some models) and interior trim materials with high energy-absorbing capabilities. As a further measure, Nissan is continually expanding the application of SRS curtain airbag systems to help minimize head and neck injuries in side collisions.
Head and neck injuries in side collisions
Reducing the impact to the head and neck in side collisions
When the vehicle is impacted from the side, the SRS curtain airbag system instantly inflates the airbags built into the sides of the ceiling to help protect front- and rear-seat occupants. These airbags help cushion the impact when an occupant's head strikes a pillar or a side window. They also help to mitigate neck injuries by helping control excessive twisting of the neck.
