It’s an age-old debate. Is it better to survive an accident with Passive Safety, or avoid one altogether with Active Safety? Well, in this day and age, AF thinks that BOTH are equally important features to have in modern days cars, even introductory level ones.
In the above video sequence, we see why there is a need to first avoid an accident thanks to Active Safety such as Traction and Stability Control like what’s found in the new Proton Iriz. Of course, as a last resort, Passive Safety should be in place to protect the occupants of a car in the event of an accident, after all isn’t prevention better than cure?
