TXpand TM is a comprehensive solution that makes transformers more secure, similar to how crumple zones
in cars redistribute the force of a collision and protect passengers.
Al-Futtaim Toyota's Abbasi explains: "Crumple zones
are areas of a vehicle that are designed to deform in a collision.
It boasts high-strength frame, side-impact collision bars, front and back crumple zones
, an energy-absorbing steering column, ISO-FIX child seat anchors, tyre pressure monitoring system, driver status detection system, panoramic sunroof, shark-fin antenna, roof rails, side steps and 18' aluminium alloy wheels.
The effectiveness of restraint devices like air bags, safety belts, crumple zones
, and side beams decline as impact speed increases.

Given the controversies on the sudden and unintended acceleration (SUA) incidents involving previous Montero models, MMPC highlighted the safety features of this new model including, among others, the forward commission mitigation system (FCM) for emergency brakes in case of acceleration; the blind spot warning system to monitor vehicles closing on the rear, driver side; crumple zones
absorbing a crash to protect the interior of the cabin.
They are equipped with anti-rolling collision systems, crumple zones
, impact zones and three-point seatbelts.
It has been made with a new stiff-body shell with front and rear crumple zones
to absorb crash energy and minimise injury to the passengers.
Sergeant Iain Rodgers from the motorcycle section said: "On a motorcycle there are no airbags or crumple zones
to offer protection.
Tata claims the body on frame construction of the Aria makes for special crumple zones
and impact beams, adding to the safety of the passengers in the car.
Fortunately, modern cars are very safe and thanks to crumple zones
and airbags no one was killed in yesterday's horror.
