Seat Belts & Airbags

RLX front seat belts

All five seating positions in the RLX have 3-point belts and head restraints. The Advance Package includes front seat belts with pre-tensioners, which allow you to have the shoulder harness comfortably loose on the body, knowing that it will automatically pull tightly into place in the event of an impact.

  • Seat belt tensioners react in the first milliseconds of a sufficient impact to automatically tighten the front belts and help hold the individual in position against the seatback.
  • To help prevent the tensioners from causing undue pressure on the chest, load limiters slightly relieve belt tension, as needed, to help soften the force.
  • In addition to two front airbags, two front-side airbags and side curtain airbags providing coverage for outboard occupants in both rows, the RLX is also equipped with a driver’s knee airbag.
  • Sensors in the front passenger seat determine if it is empty or if the passenger is too small for the passenger’s front airbag to deploy safely and disengage the front passenger’s front airbag if necessary.
