Occupant Cell

The occupant cell is the space in your car containing the driver and passengers. It forms a rigid safety cage and in contrast to the crumple zones of the car body, it is not easily deformed. It is designed to protect the survival space of occupants in accidents up to a certain severity of impact. We use measures such as crash tests to continually improve the safety of our cars' occupant cells.
