Hyundai Tucson: Supplemental Restraint System - Airbags / Where are the Airbags?

Driver’s and passenger’s front airbags

Driver’s front airbag

Passenger’s front airbag

The SRS consists of advanced airbags located in the center of the steering wheel and the passenger’s side front panel pad above the glove box.

The airbag locations are embossed with the letters “AIRBAG”.

The purpose of the SRS is to provide the vehicle's driver and front passenger with additional supplemental protection that the seat belt system does not provide in case of a frontal impact of sufficient severity.

The SRS uses sensors to gather information about the driver’s and front passenger's seat belt usage and impact severity.

The seat belt buckle sensors determine if the driver and front passenger's seat belts are fastened. These sensors provide the ability to control the SRS deployment based on whether or not the seat belts are fastened, and how severe the impact is.

The SRS offers the ability to control the airbag inflation within two levels. A first stage level is provided for moderateseverity impacts. A second stage level is provided for more severe impacts.

According to the impact severity and seat belt usage, the SRS Control Module (SRSCM) controls the airbag inflation. Failure to properly wear seat belts may increase the risk or severity of injury in a collision.


To reduce the risk of serious injury or death from inflating front airbags:

  • Seat belts must be worn at all times to help keep occupants positioned properly.
  • Move your seat as far back as possible from front airbags, while still maintaining control of the vehicle.
  • Never lean against the door or center console.
  • Hold the steering wheel at the 9 o’clock and 3 o’clock positions, to minimize the risk of injuries to your hands and arms.
  • Do not allow the front passenger to place their feet or legs on the dashboard.
  • Never place any objects (such as dashboard cover, mobile phone holder, cup holder, perfume or stickers) over or near the airbag modules on the steering wheel, instrument panel, windshield glass, and the front passenger’s panel above the glove box. Such objects may cause harm if the vehicle is in a collision severe enough to cause the airbags to deploy.
  • Do not attach any objects on the front windshield and inside mirror.
