If having seven airbags in a car wasn’t enough already, Toyota is pushing the bar even further. Having now developed a rear-seat center airbag, Toyota is looking to give a whole new level of safety to the passengers in the rear.
The Supplemental Restraint System (SRS) will have the airbag appears to deploy from the upper center of the backrest (see image). The goal of the newly developed system is to reduce the injuries caused by side impact collision by putting a barrier between two passengers in the rear seat.
Toyota continually looks for ways to improve safety in their vehicles. The full press release can be found here.
