The photo provided by Volvo Wednesday, March 6, 2013 shows an inflated pedestrian airbag at the new Volvo V40. The airbag is located under the bonnet, close to the windscreen. If the car hits someone while traveling between 20 kph (12 mph) and 50 kph (30 mph), an air bag slips out from where the car hood meets the windshield as an impact with that area is responsible for many head injuries when pedestrians slide up the car’s hood in an accident.
