Prius Safety and Euro NCAP Rating

A reader asked me about airbags on the second generation Prius.  The Prius was, apparently, the first hybrid car by the Euro NCAP safety organisation.  It scored the highest - 5 stars - for adult safety.  The video below is very informative - you can see the different airbags that are deployed depending on the type and direction of collision the SRS system detects.

You can read more about the Euro NCAP tests that were done by clicking the link here.  Suffice to say, as a father of two young children, I am reassured for my family's safety.
