Safety

Standard safety items include four-wheel-disc antilock brakes and an electronic stability system. The system has rollover mitigation technology that senses imminent rollovers and applies individual brakes in an effort to avert the accident.

Side curtain airbags that protect all three rows of seats are standard. Front-seat side-impact airbags are not available.
