new front air bags?

1059 2
What are dual-stage front air bags? I just got a copy of Better Homes and Gardens and it says the 02 Ody is the "minivan benchmark" due to all the new added features and its new side and front dual-stage airbags, the first ever offered in a minivan.

I assume that the 01 Ody airbags are safer than those in my 97 Caravan, which were found to be so strong they could severely injure a short adult such as myself. But how much safer are the 02 airbags than the 01s?
