Autoliv is expanding its safety system offering for passengers in the rear seats with the Bag-in-belt. This new seatbelt has been developed in co-operation with Daimler and will be offered for the first time on the new flagship Mercedes S-class.

When the vehicle crash sensors detect a frontal impact, the airbag control unit triggers the deployment of the Bag-in-belt.
