VW Tiguan: Active Bonnet

"When contact is made with the bumper (fender), a sensor strip triggers a pyrotechnic actuator that lifts the rear edge of the bonnet around (2 inches) within 22 milliseconds. This increases the distance between the hard engine components and the relatively flexible (hood). In turn, it reduces the risk of serious head injuries," said VW.
