All Macan models are equipped, as standard, with full-size airbags for the driver and front passenger. These are supplemented by the Porsche Side Impact Protection System (POSIP).
It comprises side airbags in the front seats, curtain airbags along the entire roof frame and the side windows from the A-pillar to the C-pillar, and side impact protection elements in the doors. Side airbags for the rear compartment, along with driver and passenger knee bags, are standard.
Two auxiliary sensors in the bumper help to detect frontal collisions. A cluster of acceleration and yaw rate sensors detects a threat of rollover and triggers the curtain airbags and seat belt pretensioners.
