New Honda Airbag Set to Help Reduce Traffic Injuries and Fatalities

2020 Honda Airbag | Falls Church, VA

Honda recently announced that it has developed a new, innovative front passenger airbag. This new Honda airbag utilizes updated technology to help protect front-seat occupants in a variety of frontal collisions scenarios.

Honda engineers from Honda R&D Americas, Inc. in Ohio created this new airbag, working alongside Autolive — one of the brand’s safety system suppliers.

“This new airbag technology represents Honda’s continuing effort to advance safety performance in a wider variety of crash scenarios and reflects the innovative thinking that our engineers are bringing to the challenge of reducing traffic injuries and fatalities,” said Jim Keller, President of Honda R&D Americas, Inc.

While conventional airbags typically have a single inflatable compartment to help prevent injuries and fatalities in collisions, the new Honda airbag uses next-generation technology to provide a safer experience.

In angled frontal impact collisions, the lateral collision forces can cause the occupant’s head to rotate or slide off the airbag. This new airbag uses four major components — three inflated compartments and a “sail panel” that stretches between the two side chambers at their outermost edge — to protect the occupant’s head. The “sail panel” in particular acts like a baseball catcher’s mitt, cradling the occupant’s head after a collision.

Honda will introduce this new advanced airbag design to new products in the United States in 2020. In the meantime, stop by Bill Page Honda and talk with a knowledgeable member of our staff about all of Honda’s other safety innovations.

About Bill Page Honda

Bill Page Honda | Falls Church, VA

Our roots go back nearly seven decades to 1950, when William H. Page opened a Buick dealership at this very location. Page’s oldest son, William J., began working for his father at the age of 14, helping him clean automobiles and marking the beginning of a long partnership.

The dealership then became a Ford store and a Pontiac store. In 1971, the Pages decided to add Honda to the enterprise, and in 1980 William J. purchased the dealerships from his father.

At this point, William J. had to choose which brands to keep. In 1982, he finalized his decision and Bill Page became an exclusive Honda dealer.

William J. Page passed away in 2007, but in 25 years of selling Honda vehicles, Page grew the dealership into a staple of Falls Church, VA. Several of his own children also have extended the Bill Page footprint with more than fifteen dealerships spanning from Maryland to South Florida. The third generation of William Page continues to work at Bill Page Honda to this day.
