The Insight is equipped with a sophisticated six-airbag system, which includes two front, two front side, and two side curtain airbags, each with coverage for the front and rear seats. Advanced sensors and inflator systems are designed so that the airbags deploy at precisely the right time with the appropriate force. The front airbags are equipped with two-stage inflators, which allow the timing and strength of airbag deployment to vary, depending on conditions. Sensors in the front passenger seat determine if it is empty or if the passenger is too small for the passenger’s front airbag to deploy safely and disengage the front passenger side airbag if necessary.
The Occupant Position Detection System (OPDS) uses sensors in the front passenger seatback to determine the height and position of the passenger and will deactivate the side airbag if a child or small-statured adult leans into the side airbag deployment path. In a side impact, side curtain airbags deploy downward from just above the doorframes on the impacted side to help protect both front and rear seat occupants.
