Elements of systems of safety

All cars considered in the present Management are equipped by a complex of the means intended for protection of the driver and passengers in case of road and transport incident. The seats equipped with headrests, seat belts (passive elements), and also emergency automatic натяжители belts and a pillow of safety of the driver and the forward passenger (active elements) here enter.

Some components of systems of safety, being an integral part of a design of the car, do not demand additional attention from outside the owner of a vehicle. The strong steel frame forming a design of a cabin in which the salon is located concerns their number; the forward and back zones of deformation absorbing energy of blow at collision, and also devices of an automatic tension of seat belts (an additional complete set), carrying out automatic sample of a weak point of tapes of belts in case of blow.

Passive elements of safety

Seat belts

For safety of the driver and passengers all seats of the car are equipped by seat belts.

In the panel of devices of some models the special control lamp reminding to the driver and passengers about necessity to be fastened by seat belts (see Has undressed the Panel of devices - the general information) is built in.

Position of seats and their backs

The design of seats of the car guarantees the maximum comfort to the person sitting in them, simultaneously providing conditions of the most effective performance of the functions with belts and safety pillows. Soft stuffing of pillows and backs provides additional protection sitting in emergencies.

The choice of position of a seat also influences safety of the person sitting in it. For example, at excessive approach of a seat to a steering wheel/panel of devices the risk травмирования sitting at operation of a pillow of safety, and also risk of ejection through a windscreen increases at a head-on collision.

The increase in an inclination of a back of a seat will worsen fixing of a body by a seat belt, - the more the back is rejected back, the above probability проскальзывания bodies of a seat belt sitting under zone section at strong front blow, and that is heavier the got traumas can.

Fix position of a forward seat in as much as possible removed (convenient for realisation of management by a vehicle) from a steering wheel/panel of devices position, a back result in vertical position.


Headrests prevent травмирование cervical department of a backbone and a head at blow behind. The headrest should be adjusted on height so that its top cut was flush with an upper edge of an ear sitting (the Section of the Instruction for use means of passive safety of the driver and passengers see).
