Toyota develops first rear window airbag

Tokyo - TOYOTA has developed an SRS (Supplemental Restraint System) rear window curtain shield airbag, the world's first*, to protect the iQ?s rear passengers' heads in the event of a rear-end collision. The innovative airbag deploys from the roof lining above the rear window in the form of a curtain-like barrier. Together with the headrests, the airbag minimizes impact to the head from a colliding vehicle or parts of the hit vehicle, thus helping to reduce the severity of injuries. Its is expected to approximately double the iQ?s rear passenger head protection performance.
