How the System Works

In a frontal collision, the collision sensors will detect rapid deceleration, and if the controller judges that the deceleration represents a severe frontal collision, the controller will trigger the inflators. The inflators inflate the appropriate airbags with nitrogen or argon gas. The inflated airbags provide a cushion for your head and upper body. The airbag inflates and deflates so quickly that you may not even realize that it has been activated. The airbag will neither hinder your view nor make it harder to exit the vehicle.

Airbags must inflate quickly and forcefully in order to reduce the chance of serious or fatal injuries. However, an unavoidable consequence of the quick inflation is that the airbag may irritate bare skin, such as the facial area against a front airbag. Wash off any residue as soon as possible to prevent skin irritation. Also, upon inflation, a loud noise will occur and some powder and smoke will be released. These conditions are not harmful and do not indicate a fire in the vehicle. Be aware, however, that some airbag components may be hot for a while after inflation.

A seat belt helps keep you in the proper position for maximum protection when an airbag inflates. Adjust your seat as far back as possible while still maintaining control of the vehicle. Sit fully back in your seat; sit up straight; do not lean over the steering wheel or dashboard. Please refer to the “Seat Adjustment” section and the “Seat Belts and Child Restraint Systems” in this section for details on proper seat and seat belt adjustments.Suzuki New ERTIGA 2020 How the System Works User Manual 01

The driver should not lean over the steering wheel. The front passenger should not rest his or her body against the dashboard or otherwise get too close to the dashboard. In these situations, the out-of-position occupant would be too close to an inflating airbag and may suffer severe injury.

Do not attach any objects to, or place any objects over, the steering wheel or dashboard. Do not place any objects between the airbag and the driver or front passenger. These objects may interfere with airbag operation or may be propelled by the airbag in the event of a collision. Also, these objects may move when you start moving the vehicle or while the vehicle is moving, and they may interfere with the driver’s view or safe driving. Each condition may cause severe injury. Do not strike or apply significant levels of impact to the airbag component areas. It can cause the airbags to malfunction.


Do not modify the system in any way including replacing the steering wheel, placing stickers on the steering wheel pad, painting the steering wheel, or covering the steering wheel with a cover.
Do not place stickers on or paint the instrument panel. Do not install and set up accessories, air fresheners, ETC readers, or portable navigation systems. Do not stand umbrellas or similar in front of airbags.
Excluding genuine Suzuki parts, do not attach accessories to the front windshield or the rearview mirror.
Even though your vehicle may be moderately damaged in a collision, the collision may not have been severe enough to trigger the airbags to inflate. If your vehicle sustains ANY front-end or side damage, have the airbag system inspected by a SUZUKI dealer or a qualified workshop to ensure it is in proper working order. If the original function of the airbag system is damaged, the airbag may not function effectively and fully in case of an emergency.

Your vehicle is equipped with a diagnostic module that records information about the airbag system if the airbags deploy in a collision. The module records information about the overall system status, which sensors activated the deployment, and for a certain vehicle only, whether the driver’s seat belt was in use.
