Inflatable Curtain (IC)
Volvo Inflatable Curtain (VIC)
This system consists of inflatable curtains located along the sides of the roof liners, stretching from the
center of both front side windows to the rear edge of the rear side door windows. It is designed to help
protect the heads of the occupants of the front seats and the occupant of the outboard rear seating
positions in certain side impact collisions.
NOTE: IC system deployment occurs only on the side of the vehicle affected by the impact.
In certain side impacts, BOTH the Inflatable Curtain (IC) and the Side Impact Airbag System (SIPS-
bag) will deploy, whereas, in some cases, ONLY the Inflatable Curtain (IC) will deploy. In cases where
BOTH the IC and the SIPS-bag deploy, deployment will occur simultaneously.
If the inflatable curtain deploys, it remains inflated for approximately 3 seconds.
