Range Rover Evoque: Front airbags

The front passenger and driver airbags are able to deploy in two stages, depending on the severity of the frontal impact. In a severe impact, the airbags inflate fully to stage two giving maximum protection. In a lesser impact, full inflation may not be required, so the airbags will only inflate to stage one. The knee bolster airbag will always fully inflate.

 Side airbags

These are designed to protect the thorax region of the torso and will deploy only in the event of a side impact and then, only on the side of the impact.

The curtain airbags are deployed in side impact and rollover events, providing greater protection from serious head injuries. They deflate at a slower rate than the front or side airbags.
