Introduction

Owner’s Manual

A good way of getting to know your new car is to read the owner’s manual, ideally before your first journey. This will give you the opportunity to familiarise yourself with new functions, to see how best to handle the car in different situations, and to make the best use of all the car’s features. Please pay attention to the safety instructions contained in the manual:

WARNING!

"Warning!" texts indicate where there is a risk of personal injury in the event of the instructions not being followed.

IMPORTANT!

"Important!" texts indicate a risk of damage to the car in the event of the instructions not being followed.

The equipment described in the owner’s manual is not present in all models. In addition to standard equipment, this manual also describes options (factory fitted equipment) and certain accessories (extra equipment).

NOTE! Volvo cars are adapted for the varying requirements of different markets, as well as for national or local legal requirements and regulations.

The specifications, design features and illustrations in this owner’s manual are not binding. We reserve the right to make modifications without prior notice.

Volvo Car Corporation and the environment

Volvo Car Corporation’s environmental philosophy

Environmental care, safety and quality are the three core values which influence all operations of the Volvo Car Corporation. We also believe that our customers share our consideration for the environment.

Your Volvo complies with strict international environmental standards and is also manufactured in one of the cleanest and most resource-efficient plants in the world. Volvo Car Corporation has global certification to the ISO 14001 environmental standard, which leads to continuous improvements within the area of the environment.

EPI (Environmental Product Information) environmental product decla rations are supplied for all Volvo models. You can now compare the environmental impact of different models and engines.

Fuel consumption

Volvo cars have competitive fuel consumption in each of their respective classes. Lower fuel consumption generally results in lower emission of the greenhouse gas, carbon dioxide.

It is possible for the driver to influence fuel consumption, see page 4.

Efficient emission control

Your Volvo is manufactured following the concept Clean inside and out – a concept that encompasses a clean interior environment as well as highly efficient emission control. In many cases the exhaust emissions are well below the applicable standards.

In addition there is a special radiator coating, PremAir®1, which can convert hazardous ground-level ozone into pure oxygen.

1.PremAir® is a registered trademark of Engelhard Corporation.

Volvo Car Corporation and the environment

Clean air in the passenger compartment

A sophisticated air cleaning system, IAQS1 (Interior Air Quality System) ensures that the air in the passenger compartment is cleaner than the air outside.

The system consists of an electronic sensor and a carbon filter. The air intake is closed if the level of reducing gases and oxidising gases, e.g. carbon monoxide, becomes too high, for example in heavy town traffic, queues and tunnels. The entry of nitrous oxides, ground-level ozone and hydrocarbons is prevented by the carbon filter.

Textile standard

The interior of a Volvo is designed to be healthy and safe – even for people with contact allergies and for asthma sufferers. Extreme attention has been given to choosing environmentally-compatible materials. This means that they also fulfil the requirements of the Öko-Tex 100 ecological standard – a major advance towards a healthier cabin environment.

Öko-Tex certification covers seatbelts, carpets, thread and fabrics for example. Even the leather upholstery undergoes chromium-

free tanning with natural plant substances and meets the requirements.

Volvo workshops and the environment

Regular maintenance carried out by an authorised Volvo workshop creates the conditions for long service life and low fuel consumption, and contributes to a cleaner environment. When Volvo’s workshops are entrusted with the repair and maintenance of the car, it becomes part of our system. We make clear environmental demands regarding the way in which workshops are designed in order to prevent spills and discharges into the environment, and this includes the thorough collection and sorting of the gaseous, liquid and solid waste that arises in our workshops. Our workshop staff have the knowledge and the tools required to guarantee good environmental care.

1.Option.

Reducing environmental impact

You can help reduce environmental impact, for example, by purchasing eco-labelled car care products and by servicing and maintaining the car according to the instructions in the owner’s manual.

The following hints will help you to do your bit for the environment:

Ensure that your tyre pressures are correct. Poorly inflated tyres increase fuel consumption. If any of the higher tyre pressures recommended by Volvo are used then fuel consumption decreases.

Since a roof rack and ski box increase air resistance, leading to significantly higher fuel consumption, they should be removed immediately after use.

Remove unnecessary items from the car - the greater the load the higher the fuel consumption.

Is your car equipped with an engine block heater? If so, use it for a few hours before starting from cold to reduce fuel consumption and exhaust emissions.

Drive gently! Avoid accelerating and braking too hard.

4

Volvo Car Corporation and the environment

Drive in the highest gear possible. Low engine speeds result in lower fuel consumption.

Ease back on the accelerator on downhill gradients.

Use engine braking. Take your foot off the accelerator and change down.

Avoid idling. Switch off the engine in traffic queues.

Always dispose of environmentally hazardous waste, such as batteries and oils, in an environmentally safe manner. If uncertain,

consult an authorised Volvo workshop for advice.

Service your car regularly.

These hints will help you to reduce your fuel consumption without increasing your travel time or lessening the enjoyment of driving.

Apart from being kind to your car, you’ll be saving money - and the Earth’s resources.

Safety

Seatbelts

Tensioning the hip strap. The belt must be positioned low down.

Always use a seatbelt

Heavy braking can have serious consequences if the seatbelts are not used. Ensure that all passengers use their seatbelts. Otherwise, rear seat passengers may be thrown forward against the backs of the front seats in the event of a collision.

Putting on a seatbelt:

Pull the belt out slowly and secure it by pressing the buckle into the lock. A loud "click" indicates that the belt has locked.

Taking off a seatbelt:

Press the red lock button and let the belt retract. If the belt does not retract fully, feed the belt in by hand so that it does not hang lose.

The belt locks and cannot be withdrawn:

If it is pulled out too quickly.

During braking and acceleration.

If the car leans heavily.

It is important that the belt lies against the body so it can provide maximum protection. Do not lean the backrest too far back. The seatbelt is designed to protect in a normal seating position.

Keep the following in mind:

Do not use clips or anything else that can prevent the belt from fitting properly.

Ensure the belt is not twisted or caught on anything.

The hip strap must be positioned low down (not over the abdomen).

Tension the hip strap over the lap by pulling the diagonal shoulder belt as illustrated.

WARNING!

Each belt is intended for one person only.

WARNING!

The seatbelts and airbags interact. If a seatbelt is not used or is used incorrectly, this may diminish the protection provided by the airbag in the event of a collision.

WARNING!

Never modify or repair the seatbelts yourself. Contact an authorised Volvo workshop.

If the belt has been subjected to a major load, such as in a collision, the entire belt must be replaced. Some of the protective characteristics of the belt may have been lost, even if it appears to be undamaged. Replace the seatbelt if the belt is worn or damaged. The new seatbelt must be typeapproved and intended for installation in the same position as the replaced belt.

Safety

Seatbelts

Seatbelt reminder

The seatbelt warning symbol in the combined instrument panel and above the rearview mirror comes on until the driver and front seat passenger buckle their seatbelts. The seatbelt reminder switches off after 6 seconds if speed is below 10 km/h. If the driver or front seat passenger have not buckled their seatbelts, the reminder switches on if speed exceeds 10 km/h and switches off if speed drops below 5 km/h.

If the seatbelt is released, the function reactivates when speed exceeds 10 km/h.

NOTE! The seatbelt reminder is intended for an adult sitting in the front seat. If a belt-fitted child seat is fitted in the front seat, the seatbelt reminder does not switch on.

Seatbelts and pregnancy

The seatbelt should always be worn during pregnancy. But it is crucial that it be worn in the correct way. The diagonal section should wrap over the shoulder then be routed between the breasts and to the side of the belly. The lap section should lay flat over the thighs and as low as possible under the belly.

It must never be allowed to ride upward.

Remove all slack from the belt and insure that Seatbelts and pregnancy. it fits close to the body without any twists.

As a pregnancy progresses, pregnant drivers should adjust their seats and steering wheel such that they can easily maintain control of the vehicle as they drive (which means they must be able to easily operate the foot pedals and steering wheel). Within this context, they should strive to position the seat with as large a distance as possible between their belly and the steering wheel.

11

Safety

Seatbelts

Label on seatbelts with seatbelt tensioner.

Seatbelt tensioner

All the seatbelts are equipped with belt tensioners. A mechanism in the belt tensioner tightens the belt around the body in the event of a sufficiently violent collision. This provides more effective restraint for passengers.

12

Safety

Airbag system

Warning symbol on the combined instrument panel

The Airbag system1 is monitored continuously by the control module and there is a warning lamp in the combined instrument panel. This lamp comes on when the ignition key is turned to position I, II or III. The symbol goes out after about seven seconds if the Airbag system1 is working correctly.

As well as the warning symbol, a message appears on the information display. If the warning symbol malfunctions, the warning triangle comes on and the message SRS AIRBAG SERVICE URGENT appears on the display. Contact an authorised

Volvo workshop immediately.

WARNING!

If the warning symbol for the Airbag system remains on or comes on while driving, it means that the Airbag system is not functioning fully. The symbol can indicate a fault in the seatbelt buckle, SIPS, SRS or IC system. Contact an authorised Volvo workshop immediately.

1.Includes SRS and seatbelt tensioner, SIPS and IC.

13

Safety

Airbags (SRS)

WARNING!

Never place a child in a child seat or on a booster cushion in the front seat if the airbag (SRS) is activated1.

Never allow a child to stand or sit in front of the front passenger seat. No one shorter than 140 cm should sit in the front passenger seat if the airbag (SRS) is activated.

Failure to follow the advice given above can endanger the life of the child.

1. For information on activated/deactivated airbag (SRS) see page17.

Airbag (SRS) on the driver’s side

The car has an SRS airbag (Supplementary Restraint System) in the steering wheel to supplement the protection afforded by the seatbelt. This airbag is fitted into the centre of the steering wheel. The steering wheel is marked SRS AIRBAG.

WARNING!

The seatbelts and airbags interact. If a seatbelt is not used or is used incorrectly, this may diminish the protection provided by the airbag in the event of a collision.

Passenger airbag (SRS)

The passenger airbag1 is fitted folded up behind a panel above the glovebox. This panel is marked SRS AIRBAG.

WARNING!

To minimise the risk of injury if the airbag deploys, passengers must sit as upright as possible with their feet on the floor and backs against the backrest. Seatbelts must be secured.

1.Not all cars have a passenger airbag (SRS). This can be unselected when the car is ordered.

14

Safety

Airbags (SRS)

WARNING!

Repairs must only be performed by an authorised Volvo workshop.

Work on the SRS system can cause malfunction and result in serious personal injury.

SRS system, left-hand drive.

SRS system

The airbag is equipped with a gas generator. A sufficiently violent collision trips sensors and ignites the gas generator, inflating the airbag with hot gas. To cushion the impact, the airbag deflates when compressed. When this occurs, smoke escapes into the car. This is completely normal. The entire process, including inflation and deflation of the airbag, occurs within tenths of a second.

SRS system, right-hand drive.

NOTE! The sensors react differently depending on the course of the collision and whether the seatbelts on the driver and passenger side are used. It is therefore possible that only one (or none) of the airbags may inflate in a collision. The SRS system senses the force of the collision on the car and adapts accordingly so that one or more airbags is deployed.

NOTE! The airbags have a function whereby their capacities are adapted to the collision force to which the vehicle is subjected.

15

Safety

Airbags (SRS)

Location of the passenger airbag in left-hand drive and right-hand drive cars.

WARNING!

Never interfere with SRS components in the steering wheel or the panel above the glovebox.

Objects and accessories must not be positioned or glued on or near the SRS AIRBAG panel (above the glovebox) or in the area affected by a deployed airbag.

16

Safety

Activating/deactivating the airbag (SRS)

Indicator showing that the passenger airbag (SRS) is deactivated.

PACOS (option)

The airbag (SRS) for the front passenger seat can be deactivated using a switch. This is necessary if a child seat is to be placed there for example.

Indicator

A text message in the rearview mirror indicates that the passenger airbag (SRS) is deactivated.

Switch for PACOS (Passenger Airbag Cut Off Switch).

Activating/deactivating

The switch is located on the passenger end of the dashboard and is accessible when the passenger door is open. Check that the switch is in the required position. Volvo recommends that that the ignition key is used to change position. (Other items with a shape similar to a key can be used.)

WARNING!

If the car is equipped with a front passenger airbag (SRS), but does not have PACOS, the airbag will always be activated.

WARNING!

Activated airbag (passenger seat): Never place a child in a child seat or on a booster cushion in the front passenger seat when the airbag is activated. This also applies to anyone shorter than

140 cm.

Deactivated airbag (passenger seat): No one taller than 140 cm should ever sit in the front passenger seat when the airbag is deactivated.

Failure to follow the advice given above can endanger life.

17

Safety

Activating/deactivating the airbag (SRS)

WARNING!

Do not allow anyone to sit in the front passenger seat if the text message in the roof panel indicates that the airbag (SRS) is deactivated and the airbag warning symbol is displayed in the combined instrument panel. This indicates that there has been a severe malfunction. Contact an authorised Volvo workshop as soon as possible.

Switch for SRS in ON position.

Switch position

ON = Airbag (SRS) activated. With the switch in this position, persons taller than 140 cm can sit in the front passenger seat, but never children in a child seat or on a booster cushion.

Switch for SRS in OFF position.

OFF = Airbag (SRS) is deactivated. With the switch in this position, children in a child seat or on a booster cushion can sit in the front passenger seat, but never persons taller than 140 cm.

18

Safety

Side airbags (SIPS bags)

Side airbag locations.

Side airbags (SIPS bags)

A large proportion of the collision force is transferred by the SIPS (Side Impact Protection System) to the floor, roof, beams, pillars, and other structural parts of the body. The side airbags on the driver’s and front passenger seats protect the chest area and are an important part of the SIPS. The side airbags are located in the front seat backrests.

Inflated side airbag.

WARNING!

Side airbags are a supplement to the SIPS system. Always wear a seatbelt.

WARNING!

Repairs must only be performed by an authorised Volvo workshop.

Work on the SIPS system can cause malfunction and result in serious personal injury.

WARNING!

Do not put objects in the area between the outside of the seat and the door panel, since this area is required by the side airbag.

WARNING!

Use only Volvo genuine car seat covers, or seat covers approved by Volvo. Other seat covers may impede the operation of the side air bags.

Child seats and side airbags

The side airbag does not diminish the protection provided by the car to children seated in a child seat or on a booster cushion.

A child seat or booster cushion can be placed on the front passenger seat provided that the car does not have an activated1 passenger airbag.

1.For information on activated/deactivated airbag (SRS) see page 17.

19

Safety

Side airbags (SIPS bags)

Left-hand drive.

Right-hand drive.

SIPS bags

The side airbag is equipped with a gas generator. A sufficiently violent collision trips the sensors and ignites the gas generator, inflating the side airbag. The airbag inflates between the occupant and the door panel and thereby cushions the initial impact while deflating. The side airbag is only normally deployed on the side of the collision.

20

Safety

Inflatable Curtain (IC)

Properties

The inflatable curtain, IC (Inflatable Curtain), is a supplement to the SIPS system. It is concealed in the headlining along both sides of the roof and protects both front and rear seat passengers. The inflatable curtain is activated by sensors in a sufficiently violent collision. When deployed, the inflatable curtain inflates. The inflatable curtain helps to prevent the driver and passengers from striking their heads on the inside of the car during a collision.

WARNING!

Never hang or fasten anything on the roof handles. The hook is only intended for light outer garments (not for hard objects such as umbrellas).

Do not screw or fit anything to the headlining, door pillars or side panels. This could compromise the intended protection. Only use Volvo genuine parts that are approved for placement in these areas.

WARNING!

Do not load the car higher than 50 mm under the top edge of the side windows. Otherwise, the intended protection of the inflatable curtain, which is hidden in the headlining, may be compromised.

WARNING!

The inflatable curtain is a supplement to the seatbelts.

Always use a seatbelt.

21

Safety

WHIPS

Protection against whiplash injury – WHIPS

The whiplash protection system (WHIPS) consists of energy absorbing backrests and specially designed head restraints for the front seats. The system is actuated by a rearend collision, where the angle and speed of the collision, and the nature of the colliding vehicle all have an influence.

WARNING!

The WHIPS system is a supplement to the seatbelts. Always wear your seatbelt.

Properties of the seat

When the WHIPS system is deployed, the front seat backrests fall backward to alter the position of the driver and front seat passenger. This diminishes the risk of whiplash injury.

WARNING!

Never modify or repair the seat or WHIPS system yourself. Contact an authorised Volvo workshop.

WHIPS system and child seats/ booster cushions

The WHIPS system does not diminish the protection provided by the car to children seated in a child seat or on a booster cushion.

Correct seating position

For the best possible protection, the driver and front seat passenger should sit in the centre of the seat with as little space as possible between the head and the head restraint.

22

Safety

WHIPS

Do not obstruct the WHIPS system

WARNING!

Do not squeeze rigid objects between the rear seat cushion and the front seat backrest. Make sure you do not to obstruct the function of the WHIPS system.

WARNING!

If a rear seat backrest is folded down, the corresponding front seat must be moved forward so that it does not touch the folded backrest.

WARNING!

If a seat has been subjected to extreme forces, such as due to a rear collision, the WHIPS system must be checked by an authorised Volvo workshop.

Part of the WHIPS system’s protective capacity may have been lost even if the seats appear to be undamaged. Contact an authorised Volvo workshop to have the system checked even after a minor rearend collision.

1.The bodywork of the car could be greatly deformed in a collision without airbag deployment. A number of factors such as the rigidity and weight of the object hit, the speed of the car, the angle of the collision etc. affects how the different safety systems of the car are activated.

If the airbags have been deployed, the following is recommended:

Have the car transported to an authorised Volvo workshop. Do not drive with deployed airbags.

Let an authorised Volvo workshop replace components in the car’s safety system.

Always contact a doctor.

NOTE! The SRS, SIPS, IC and belt tensioner systems are deployed only once during a collision.

WARNING!

The Airbag control unit is located in the centre console. If the centre console is drenched with water or other liquid, disconnect the battery cables. Do not attempt to start the car since the airbags may deploy. Have the car transported to an authorised Volvo workshop.

WARNING!

Never drive with deployed airbags. They can make steering difficult. Other safety systems may also be damaged. The smoke and dust created when the airbags are deployed can cause skin and eye irritation after intensive exposure. In case of irritation, wash with cold water. The rapid deployment sequence and airbag fabric may cause friction and skin burns.

Safety

Child safety

Fitting a child seat

Volvo has child safety products that are designed for and tested by Volvo.

When using other products that are available on the market, it is important to read the fitting instructions included with the product.

Do not attach the straps for the child seat to the horizontal adjustment bar, springs, rails or beams under the seat. Sharp edges can damage the straps.

Allow the back of the child seat to rest against the dashboard. This applies to cars without a passenger airbag, or where the airbag is deactivated.

WARNING!

Never place the child seat in the front seat if the car is equipped with an activated1 front passenger airbag. If problems arise when fitting child safety products, contact the manufacturer for clearer instructions.

ISOFIX fixture system for child seats (option)

The outer rear seats have ISOFIX attachment points for child seats. Contact a Volvo dealer for further information on child safety equipment.

1.For information on activated/deactivated airbag (SRS), see page 17.

Child safety

WARNING!

If your car is fitted with an extra seat then the tailgate must be equipped with a lock cylinder. Unlocking from the outside can now take place in the normal way (key in driver’s door and/or with the remote control) as well as by using the key in the tailgate lock cylinder.

The child safety locks in the tailgate must be activated, in order to prevent a child accidentally opening the tailgate from the inside.

If you must take the cargo area cover along on a trip while using the extra seat in the cargo area, proceed as follows:

Fold both backrests of the backseat into a more upright position (see page 90).

Carefully position the detached cargo area cover between the rear seat backrests and the extra seat. Fold up the extra seat’s head restraint.

Extra seat (option)

The extra seat is suitable for two children, each weighing between 15 and 36 kg and up to max. 140 cm tall. The maximum total weight is 72 kg.

Folding up

Remove the cargo area cover if your car is so equipped.

Fold the backrest section forwards until it locks in place.

Fold the seat cushion forwards.

Lowering

Fold the seat cushion rearwards.

Pull the backrest section’s handle to open it and then fold it downwards.

Indicator and warning symbols

Indicator and warning symbols

All indicator and warning symbols1 light up when the ignition key is turned to position II before starting. This is to check that the symbols/lights are working. When the engine starts, all the symbols should go out except the handbrake symbol, which extinguishes when the handbrake is released.

If the engine does not start within five seconds, all symbols extinguish except the symbols for a fault in the car’s emissions system and for low oil pressure. Certain symbols may have no

function, depending on the car’s specifications.

1.With certain engine variants the symbol for low oil pressure is not lit.

Warning symbols in the centre of the instrument panel

These symbols are lit with a red or amber glow depending on the severity of the fault.

Red symbol:

Stop the car! Read the message in the display.

Symbol and message text are visible until the fault has been rectified.

Yellow symbol:

Read the message in the display. Remedy!

The message text is cleared using the READ button, see page 44, or disappears automatically after 2 minutes.

When the message text "TIME FOR REGULAR SERVICE" is shown, the symbol lamp and message text are cleared using the READ button, or disappear automatically after 2 minutes.

ABS fault

If the ABS symbol lights, the ABS system is not functioning. The car’s normal braking system continues to work, but without the ABS function.

Stop the car in a safe place and switch off the engine. Restart the engine.

If the warning symbol goes out, continue driving. It was an indicator error.

If the warning symbol remains lit, drive to an authorised Volvo workshop to have the ABS system checked.

Fault in brake system

If the BRAKE symbol lights, the brake fluid level may be too low.

Stop the car in a safe place and check the brake fluid reservoir level.

If the reservoir level is below MIN, the car should not be driven further. Have it

Instruments and controls

Indicator and warning symbols

towed to an authorised Volvo workshop to have the brake system checked.

If the BRAKE and ABS warning symbols light at the same time, there may be a problem in the brake force distribution.

Stop the car in a safe place and switch off the engine. Restart the engine.

If both symbols go out, it was an indicator error.

If the warning symbols remain lit, check the brake fluid reservoir level.

If the reservoir level is below MIN, the car should not be driven further. Have it towed to an authorised Volvo workshop to have the brake system checked.

If the brake fluid level is normal and the lamps remain lit, carefully drive the car to the nearest authorised Volvo workshop to have the brake system checked.

WARNING!

If the BRAKE and ABS warning symbols light at the same time, there is a risk that the rear end will have a tendency to slide during heavy braking.

Seatbelt reminder

Particle filter

Make sure the particle filter is replaced regularly. Consult an authorised Volvo workshop.

Ice and snow

Remove ice and snow from the climate control air intake (the grille between the bonnet and the windscreen).

Fault tracing

An authorised Volvo workshop has the instruments and tools required for any fault tracing or repair of your climate control system.

Entrust checks and repairs only to trained personnel.

Refrigerant

The air conditioning system contains R134a refrigerant. This refrigerant contains no chlorine, which means that it is harmless to the ozone layer. The system must only be charged with R134a refrigerant. Have an authorised Volvo workshop carry out this work.

Ventilation fan function

When the engine is off (and if the ignition key is in position I or II), the ventilation fan is automatically switched off. This is to prevent the battery from becoming discharged.

To activate the ventilation fan, turn the fan control and set the desired speed.

Cars with ECC

Actual temperature

The temperature you select corresponds to the physical experience with reference to air speed, humidity, exposure to sun, etc. which affect the interior and exterior of the car.

Sensors

The sun sensor is on the upper portion of the dashboard. Remember not to cover it. Do not cover the passenger compartment temperature sensor on the climate control panel.

Side windows and sunroof

To ensure that the air conditioning works satisfactorily, close all side windows and the sunroof (if fitted). Also, make sure the air ducts in the parcel shelf are not blocked.

Acceleration

The air conditioning system switches off temporarily at full acceleration. You may feel a temporary rise in temperature.

Condensation

In warm weather, condensation from the air conditioning system may drip under the car. This is normal.

Fuel economy

With ECC, the air conditioning system is controlled automatically and is used just enough to cool the passenger compartment and dehumidify the incoming air. This provides better fuel economy compared to conventional systems where the air conditioning cools the air to just above freezing point.

Cargo compartment

General

Payload depends on the car’s total kerb weight, including any accessories that are mounted. Kerb weight includes the driver, the weight of the fuel tank when filled to 90 % and various fluids, such as washer fluid and coolant. Mounted accessories, i.e. towbar, load carrier, space box, etc., are included in the kerb weight.

The payload capacity of the car is reduced by the number of passengers and their weight.

WARNING!

The driving characteristics of the car change based on its kerb weight and how heavily it is loaded.

Loading the cargo compartment

The seatbelts and airbags provide the driver and passengers substantial protection, especially in head-on collisions. However, you must also remember to protect yourself against injuries from behind. When loading cargo, bear in mind that improperly secured or incorrectly loaded objects in the cargo compartment could be thrown forward with great speed and force in the event of a collision or sudden braking, causing serious injuries.

NOTE! Bear in mind that if an object weighing 20 kg is subjected to a head-on collision at a speed of 50 km/h, its impact weight will be 1000 kg.

Think about the following when loading:

Place the load by the backrest.

Position heavy loads as low as possible.

Position wide loads on each side of the division in the backrest.

Secure the load with retaining straps using the car’s lashing eyes.

Never load above the backrest without a load net.

When the rear seat backrest is folded down, do not load objects higher than 50 mm from the top edge of the rear passenger door windows. Otherwise, the protection offered by the inflatable curtain hidden inside the headlining will be compromised.

WARNING!

Do not load extremely heavy objects up by the front seats. The lowered backrest will be pressed down unnecessarily hard.

Never load cargo above the backrests! If you do so, the load could be thrown forward in the event of sudden braking or a collision and severely injure you or your passengers. Remember to always secure (bind) the load properly.

WARNING!

When the rear seat backrest is folded down, do not load objects higher than 50 mm from the top edge of the rear passenger door windows. Otherwise, the protection offered by the inflatable curtain hidden inside the headlining will be compromised.

NOTE! Make sure that the holes in the plastic ferrules on the top of the backrest engage with the hooks on the bottom of the seat cushion.

When you later raise the backrest and seat cushion, the head restraints must be returned to their normal positions.

Removing the seat cushion
