The design includes an inflatable plastic bladder integrated into the glove box door which provides front passenger knee protection similar to a conventional knee airbag mounted under the instrument panel.
The airbag design is 65 percent lighter while the inflator is 75 percent smaller than a conventional knee airbag inflator.
