Volvo Car Corporation, a Sweden-based automaker, is equipping its V40 with the world's first pedestrian air bag.

The model has an air bag that ejects from the hood to protect pedestrians from injury. It also features a backswept headlight and panoramic glass roof to give it a sporty look.

The vehicle is to compete with the BMW 1 Series, Audi A3 and Mercedes-Benz A Class.
