Seat belt pretensioners

Seat belt pretensioners  - General information - Seat belts - Safety - Volvo XC60 Owners Manual - Volvo XC60

All seat belts are equipped with pretensioners that reduce slack in the belts. These pretensioners are triggered in situations where the front or side impact airbags deploy, and in certain impacts from the rear. The front seat belts also include a tension reducing device which, in the event of a collision, limits the peak forces exerted by the seat belt on the occupant.
