Rear thorax air bags for outboard seating positions

Rear thorax air bags1 provide additional occupant protection to passengers seated in the rear on both sides closest to the door in certain impacts. Additional air bags1 include:

  • Dual-stage frontal that help to reduce the risk of air bag-related injury in low-severity crashes when the full force of the air bag may not be necessary
  • Front and rear side-impact that provide additional occupant protection in side impacts
  • Driver and front passenger knee that help reduce the risk of certain injuries to front seat occupants
On Premium and Performance models, this feature is also included when the Driver Assist Package is ordered. On Luxury models, this feature requires the available Driver Awareness Package.

1 Always use safety belts and child restraints. Children are safer when properly secured in a rear seat in the appropriate child restraint. See the Owner's Manual for more information.
