8 air bags1

Volt® makes occupant protection a priority with 8 standard air bags,1 including:

  • Dual-stage driver and front passenger frontal air bags that deploy at one of two different rates depending on the severity of the collision
  • Front knee air bags mounted under the instrument panel; when deployed, they help restrain the driver and front passenger during a collision
  • Front seat-mounted, side-impact air bags designed to help reduce the risk of torso and pelvis injuries to front seat occupants
  • Roof-rail mounted head curtain air bags with rollover capability; they cover the side windows and pillars when deployed, providing protection for both front and rear outboard seating positions

The front passenger frontal air bag includes a Passenger Sensing System1 that automatically switches the air bag on or off based on the type of pressure on the seat. You can determine whether the passenger air bag is on or off by looking at the air bag status indicator on the overhead console when starting your vehicle.

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