The heart of the innovative smart safety concept: the tridion safety cell is made of high-tech steels and encases the passengers like the hard shell of a nut. Deformation is kept to a minimum in the event of an impact. On a visual level, it is instrumental to the iconic design.
Takes the punch out of gusts of wind: Crosswind Assist is able to offset even strong gusts of wind. When the esp® sensors sense the vehicle is at risk of leaving the lane they automatically initiate controlled brake intervention. The vehicle stays on course and the steering effort is greatly reduced.
Anticipating dangers: the radar-based Forward Collision Warning function (optional) can help to prevent rear-end collisions. If an insufficient safety distance is detected a warning lamp lights up in the instrument cluster. If the distance becomes critical with a risk of collision there is also an acoustic warning.
Six airbags as standard: the smart fortwo cabrio comes with one airbag for driver and front passenger respectively and a kneebag for the driver and front passenger. There is also a head/thorax bag for the driver and front passenger in their respective seat backrests.
The most rigid cabrio body to date: torsional stiffness is a particularly crucial safety factor for a cabrio. On the smart fortwo cabrio it has been improved by around 15% in comparison to its predecessor by means of a special blend of different types of steel.
Safe motoring with the soft top down, too: the roll-over bar of the smart fortwo cabrio lends the body added stability.
