 Isuzu Hi-Decker Gala
image
The Gala featured the first use of SRS airbags and pretensioner seatbelts on a Japanese sightseeing bus, and came with anti-rollover performance that complies with ECE standards, and other improved safety measures such as softer surfaces on the rear of passenger seats and a light-weight permanent magnet retarder that contributes to increased braking force.
