It's a proven concept that the combination of airbags and seat belts enables better protection against impact. The entire Vito range comes with driver and front passenger airbags as part of an extensive range of standard-fit safety equipment.
This includes three-point seat belts and a seat belt warning light for the driver. In a collision, belt tensioners instantly take all slack out of the belts and enhance passive safety in the event of an accident.
Optional thorax-pelvis side bags* and window bags* in the front offer additional protection. When fitted, these deploy on the impact side in severe side collisions. The window bag increases the degree of protection available for the head of the driver or co-driver. Housed in the seat backrests, thorax bags are designed to provide increased side protection for the thorax of the seat occupant.
The figure above shows various deployed airbags (maximum deployment) – for illustrative purposes only.
Window bags and thorax bags are optional equipment available at additional cost*.
*Standard equipment on the Valente.
The safety systems described on this website have been developed to enhance active safety and help van drivers devote their full attention to the situation on the road. Despite their capabilities, these innovative assistance systems cannot defy the laws of physics and do not absolve the driver of the duty to drive safely.
