Active safety vs passive safety: What’s the difference?

If you’ve been shopping for a new vehicle recently, you may have heard the terms active and passive safety and wondered what they referred to. Hopefully, this article will help you make some sense of it all.

With so many technologies coming on the market when it comes to safety, it can be a bit overwhelming. The key to figuring it all out is understanding that there are two basic types of safety features, active safety and passive safety.

Active safety technologies refer to systems that are designed to prevent accidents. Adaptive cruise control and automatic braking are two examples of active safety technologies. Passive safety technologies are designed to protect you should an accident happen. Examples of passive safety features include airbags, but also technologies that improve visibility such as blind spot monitoring.
