Toyota announces first rear window airbag

Toyota rear airbag

Toyota announced today that it has developed the world’s first SRS rear window curtain shield airbag to protect rear passengers’ heads in the event of a rear-end collision.

No longer content with a mere 5 star NCAP rating Toyota is pushing on with a new airbag set up. 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 minimises impact to the head from a colliding vehicle or parts of the hit vehicle, thus helping to reduce the severity of injuries. Its use in the soon-to-be launched “iQ” ultra-compact four-seater is expected to approximately double the car’s rear passenger head protection performance.

Toyota has continued to actively develop and make available its collision safety technologies — resulting in the market introduction of SRS curtain shield and knee airbags — to enable its vehicles to better respond to a greater range of accidents.
