Volvo’s new integrated child booster cushions can be set at a choice of two heights. The lower setting is intended for children measuring 115-140 cm, while the upper setting is for children measuring 95-120 cm. The inflatable curtains have been extended by 60 mm, and in combination with the strong body side structure this provides children of different sizes with effective protection in a side impact. The child is well-protected in an impact since the seat belt’s geometry is set optimally irrespective of the height of the child. The lower part of the seat belt (the lap belt section) is better positioned, sitting more tightly across the thighs and thus protecting the child’s weak pelvic structure.
