2007 Volvo V70
Side impact airbags - front seats only
As an enhancement to the structural side impact protection built into your vehicle, the vehicle is also
equipped with Side Impact Protection System (SIPS) airbags.
The SIPS airbag system is designed to help increase occupant protection in the event of certain side
impact collisions. The SIPS airbags are designed to deploy only during certain side-impact collisions,
depending on the crash severity, angle, speed and point of impact.
NOTE: SIPS airbag deployment (one airbag) occurs only on the side of the vehicle affected by the
impact. The airbags are not designed to deploy in all side impact situations.
Components in the SIPS airbag system
This SIPS airbag system consists of gas generators and side airbag modules built into the outboard sides
of both front seat backrests.
