Standard equipment for the CLC includes two-stage front airbags, sidebags in the front and windowbags. Sidebags for the rear are available as an option. The airbags are deployed according to the situation, which means that in the event of a collision, only the airbags necessary for this situation are activated. In a frontal collision, the front airbags are deployed in two stages, depending on the severity of the impact.
All seats are fitted with 3-point seat belts and head restraints. Belt tensioners on the front and rear seats pull the belts taut against the body in the event of a frontal or rear-end collision of a given degree of severity. The belt force limiters increase occupant safety in a frontal collision. They ensure that the tension is released in a controlled manner once a set limit has been reached, thereby reducing the risk of injury.
