Subaru Forester: SRS airbag (Supplemental Restraint System airbag) / Example of the type of accident

The driver’s SRS frontal airbag and front passenger’s SRS frontal airbag are designed as follows.

  • To deploy in the event of an accident involving a moderate to severe frontal collision
  • To function on a one-time-only basis

The driver’s SRS frontal airbag and front passenger’s SRS frontal airbag are not designed as follows.

  • To deploy in most lesser frontal impacts*1
  • To deploy in most side or rear impacts or in most rollover accidents*2

*1: Because the necessary protection can be achieved by the seatbelt alone.

*2: Because deployment of only the driver’s SRS frontal airbag or both the driver’s and front passenger’s SRS frontal airbags would not protect the occupant in those situations.

SRS airbag deployment depends on the level of force experienced in the passenger compartment during a collision. That level differs from one type of collision to another, and it may have no bearing on the visible damage done to the vehicle itself.
