Safety
The SUV is equipped with quality safety instruments that avoid accidents and also protect the passengers in case if there is one. The head restraints on front seats have the ability to bend forward when an impact to the car occurs from behind. This movement would protect the injuries that may occur to head or neck. The air bags cushion the front passengers and the second and third row passengers from side to avoid fatal injuries if the SUV rolls over. A sensor sits on the body of the car that can detect the angle between vehicular position and ground. This sensor helps activate the air bags before the roll over takes place. An electromechanical composition of systems keeps the torque, braking and traction level intact by using sensors and control systems that handle the relevant mechanical devices. This entire system is called the Electronic Stability Programme.
