    I saw a rather strange looking accident damage in the last few days. The car is parked near a police station close by. This one is an SX4, which was banged on the rear by an Indica..the Indica front was badly damaged..but the SX4 boot, axle , C pillar is absolutely smashed..The B-pillar is intact,the front (engine) area and A-pillar are fine. And yet airbags are deployed..:confused:

    I was not aware that airbags would be deployed on a rear end collision..

  2. Sudden deacclaration can cause airbags to deploy.

    Maybe the SX4 was stationary and was rear ended by the speeding (out of control) Indica which may be resulted in maximum rear damage. Due to the impact the air bags sensors must have activated causing the air bags to inflate. I maybe wrong here. It is indeed a strange accident, pics would have helped to understand more. The SX4's boot should have taken the maximum impact without any major damage to the C-pillar.
  4. If the impact was so huge that the car was totally damaged..it could have hit some thing on the front (another car or obstacle)

    it is stated in the SX4's user manual that air bags won't deploy if it's hit in the back/side.

    Not necessary that the airbags get deployed only in a frontal impact. The severity of the impact plays good here. Even if it's a rear impact and the sensor senses a severe impact, it surely is bound to deploy the airbags.
