As of next year, the 3-point seatbelt would have been in use for 50 years. That’s five decades of dispersing impact evenly to avoid serious injury.

These are the guys that are not only developing advanced crash safety technology, but systems that prevent the crash from even happening. It’s more than just pre-collision braking and lane keep assist – it’s technology such as large animal detection
and cyclist detection, that tie in with ABS brakes, stability control, electronic brake-force distribution, and a suite of cameras and radar systems around the whole car to create a 360-degree monitoring force to keep you and your loved ones safe.
