ferred driving position, and the tilt steering wheel
offers easy access. In case of an accident, the fol-
lowing mechanisms improve driver safety.

steering column from entering the passenger
compartment during initial impact.
? A system for energy absorption is provided by the
breakaway steering column which has a one-way
capsule.
