Air bag with Passenger Sensing System

The front passenger seat air bag1 has an ingenious Passenger Sensing System for smarter air bag deployment. Sensors embedded in the seat detect weight and pressure to determine when there is a passenger in the front seat, if that passenger is an adult or a child and if the front passenger air bag needs to deploy in a crash.

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.
