Safety

Standard safety items include four-wheel-disc, antilock brakes and a StabiliTrak 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-type airbags that protect all three rows of seats are standard. Front-seat side-impact airbags are not available.
