Fitment of the Pedestrian protection system is market and model dependent.

The bumper includes sensors that detect a collision with a pedestrian and includes energy absorbing foam and plastics in its construction, to reduce leg injuries.

During a pedestrian collision, the sensors initiate a bonnet deployment system that releases the bonnet hinge system and raises the rear edge of the bonnet by approximately 130 mm (5.1 inches).

This increases the gap between the bonnet and the components within the engine compartment to create a cushion to mitigate injury caused to the pedestrian.

The Pedestrian protection system is active only when the ignition is on and the vehicle is driven between the speeds of approximately 25 km/h (16 mph) and 50 km/h (31 mph).
