Everything is under control

Door damages caused by unintentionally striking a nearby object belongs to the past thanks to i-protect. The innovative combination of sensor systems and an integrated stopping mechanism prevents paintwork damages, dints and accidents during entering and exiting the car. The most recent development from the technology leader brakes the car door automatically in case of eventual collision and is a significant step towards more active safety.
