Autoliv Shows Another Advance in Vehicle Safety: New Steering Wheel with New Driver Airbag
STOCKHOLM, Sweden, Sept. 23, 2004 (PRIMEZONE) -- One of the most striking innovations at the Paris Auto Show -- that opens this week -- is the world's first steering wheel with a fixed hub. Thanks to this innovation, the frontal airbag for the driver no longer has to be round. The shape and the design of the bag can instead be optimized to provide the best possible protection in a crash. Additionally, the Fixed-Hub Steering Wheel offers improved convenience for car drivers and greater design freedom for vehicle manufacturers. Indicators and controls can be placed on the steering wheel, instead of being squeezed into tightly-packed instrument panels. The new system will first appear on Citroen's new C4 model which will be launched this fall.
