Honda All-New Life-World’s first automobile to offer a driver-side i-SRS airbag system with continuously staged inflation
Honda announced the sales in Japan of the all-new Life from November 7, 2008. Continuing a tradition of superior comfort and utility, the new Honda Life offers enhanced drivability and is the first minicar in Japan to include an audio system with a backup camera as standard equipment. In addition, a special mobility-assistive version of Life with lift-up front passenger seat will go on sale December 5. ECO lamps on both sides of the dashboard help drivers refine driving habits for enhanced fuel economy.
The all-new Honda Life was developed with the concept of “daily smile technology” to achieve a level of drivability and utility customers can enjoy in their everyday lives. Based on this concept, Honda evaluated every aspect of the vehicle from the customer’s point of view to develop a minicar that will put a smile on the customer’s face every day. The new Life is the world’s first automobile to offer a driver-side i-SRS airbag system with continuously staged inflation, which accommodates a broad range of occupant positions and potential collision situations. All packages include this new safety technology as standard equipment.
