Adding a driver's knee airbag is just part of Azera's safety story. Truth is, with all of the innovative safety features that are standard on every Azera, the feeling of security is all-encompassing.
At the center of Azera's active safety technology is its Vehicle Stability Management system (VSM). To help you avoid a collision, stay on course, or drive safely in bad weather, VSM automatically manages several important safety features including: Electronic Stability Control (ESC), Traction Control System (TCS), Anti-lock Braking System (ABS), Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD) and Brake Assist (BA).
The front seats in the Azera provide the comfort and support one expects, but buried deep within their design is the increased ability to absorb shocks in the event of a rear-end collision. This type of structural reinforcement has been shown to reduce neck and head injuries by 17%.*
*Based on internal tests.
For challenging maneuvers in tight parking lots or while parallel parking, rear sensors provide an audible warning signal when nearby obstacles are detected.
According to national insurance claims, over 25% of accidents happen while in reverse. When you put the Azera into reverse, the rearview image with parking guides is displayed on the Azera's 7-inch navigation touchscreen to increase your vision and awareness.
Its extensive passive safety technology adds to the secure feeling that comes with driving the Azera. For protection in a collision, Azera's nine-airbag safety system includes two front airbags, four front and rear side-impact airbags, two side-curtain airbags, and even a driver's knee airbag.
