The new 2013 Chevrolet Cruze introduces an industry first side air bag that uses a flexible venting technology designed to deploy more efficiently while providing equivalent crash protection.
Unlike more complex dual-stage air bags that use one inflator for low-speed crashes and another for high-speed crashes, the Cruze's new single-stage "smart air bag" uses one lower output inflator to manage both low-speed and high-speed crash forces. The system's vent reduces the risk of inflation-induced injury by allowing the drivers forward momentum to actively push the air out and away.
So how does it work? Take a look!
