Knee Airbags

Why dont BMW install knee airbags in all X1's?
Seems like it's only installed in the US models now..
Why not make the car as safe as possible on all markets?

I had no idea that some markets don't get the knee airbags. Why on earth would they leave out such an important part of a safety system?
Where are you located?
I'm in Canada and we have them as standard equipment.
In fact I believe we also have one that covers the windshield in case of a crash!
Perhaps it's the safety standards in each country.

Some countries seem to get more standard active safety systems than in the US, which honestly I would prefer over passive systems like a knee airbag.
