Engineers at Chevrolet have developed a new air bag that, rather than deploying with either low or high force, deploys with an appropriate level of force for the situation. Whereas previously, airbags could sometimes cause serious injuries, this new design allows the momentum of the driver to decompress the airbag, allowing it to give against their pressure and cushion them better.
The new system was recently tested by the NHTSA under their New Car Assessment program, and the Cruze earned the highest rating, 5 stars, for overall vehicle safety.
Not only are these tests a great way for automakers to ensure that they are working in the right direction toward providing a safe driving experience, but they also serve drivers by letting them know whether or not the many new safety features being added to vehicles are actually protecting them.
