Locking separately

The trunk lid can be locked separately using the switch in the front center armrest.

  • Trunk lid secured, arrow 1.
  • Trunk lid not secured, arrow 2.

Slide the switch into the arrow 1 position. This secures the trunk lid and disconnects it from the central locking system.

When the center armrest is locked, the tailgate cannot be accessed. This is beneficial when the vehicle is parked using valet service. The infrared remote control can be handed out without the key.
