Side airbags are inside the seat backrest of the front seats. A label indicates that side airbags are in your vehicle.
The side airbag deploys during significant lateral crashes. The airbag inflates within a few thousandths of a second and deflates on contact with the occupants, thus providing protection for the chest and shoulder areas. During minor lateral crashes, overturns, front crashes and rear crashes, the side airbags will not deploy.
