Safety belts

Seats with safety belt

The vehicle has five seats, each of which is equipped with a safety belt.

Notes

Always make sure that safety belts are being worn by all occupants before driving away. Although airbags enhance safety by providing added protection, they are not a substitute for safety belts.

  • The shoulder strap's anchorage point will be correct for adult seat occupants of every build if the seat is correctly adjusted.
  • The two outer safety belt buckles, integrated into the rear seat, are for passengers sitting on the left and right.
  • The center rear seat belt buckle marked with the letters CENTER is solely intended for the center passenger.

Never allow more than one person to wear One person per safety belt

Never allow more than one person to wear a single safety belt. Never allow infants or small children to ride on a passenger's lap.

Make sure that the belt lies low around the hips in the lap area and does not press on the abdomen. Otherwise, the belt can slip over the hips in the lap area in a frontal impact and injure the abdomen.

The safety belt must not lie across the neck, rub on sharp edges, be routed over solid or breakable objects, or be pinched.

Avoid wearing clothing that prevents the belt from fitting properly, and pull the shoulder belt periodically to readjust the tension across your lap; otherwise, the retention effect of the safety belt may be reduced.
