Seat belts
The seat belts are locked during
heavy acceleration or deceleration of
the vehicle holding the occupants in
the sitting position. Therefore the risk
of injury is considerably reduced.
9 Warning
Fasten seat belt before each trip.
In the event of an accident, people
not wearing seat belts endanger
their fellow occupants and
themselves.
Seat belts are designed to be used by
only one person at a time. Child
restraint system 3 47.
Periodically check all parts of the belt
system for damage and proper
functionality.
Have damaged components
replaced. After an accident, have the
belts and triggered belt pretensioners
replaced by a workshop.
Note
Make sure that the belts are not
damaged by shoes or sharp-edged
objects or trapped. Prevent dirt from
getting into the belt retractors.
Seat belt reminder X 3 84.
Belt force limiters
On the front seats, stress on the body
is reduced by the gradual release of
the belt during a collision.
Belt pretensioners
In the event of a head-on or rear-end
collision of a certain severity, the front
seat belts are tightened.
9 Warning
Incorrect handling (e.g. removal or
fitting of belts) can trigger the belt
pretensioners.
Deployment of the belt pretensioners
is indicated by continuous illumination
of control indicator v 3 84.
Triggered belt pretensioners must be
replaced by a workshop. Belt
pretensioners can only be triggered
once.
Note
Do not affix or install accessories or
other objects that may interfere with
the operation of the belt
pretensioners. Do not make any
modifications to belt pretensioner
components as this will invalidate
the vehicle type approval.

The airbag system consists of a
number of individual systems
depending on the scope of
equipment.
When triggered, the airbags inflate
within milliseconds. They also deflate
so quickly that it is often unnoticeable
during the collision.
9 Warning
If handled improperly the airbag
systems can be triggered in an
explosive manner.
Note
The airbag systems and belt
pretensioner control electronics are
located in the centre console area.
Do not put any magnetic objects in
this area.
Do not affix any objects onto the
airbag covers and do not cover them
with other materials.
41
Each airbag is triggered only once.
Have deployed airbags replaced by
a workshop. Furthermore, it may be
necessary to have the steering
wheel, the instrument panel, parts of
the panelling, the door seals,
handles and the seats replaced.
Do not make any modifications to
the airbag system as this will
invalidate the vehicle type approval.
When the airbags inflate, escaping
hot gases may cause burns.

Beyond the warning required by
ECE R94.02, for safety reasons
never use a forward-facing child
restraint system on the passenger
seat with an active front airbag.
9 Danger
Do not use a child restraint system
on the passenger seat with active
front airbag.
The warning label is located on both
sides of the front passenger sun visor.
Airbag deactivation 3 46.
Front airbag system
The front airbag system consists of
one airbag in the steering wheel and
one in the instrument panel on the
front passenger side. These can be
identified by the word AIRBAG.
The front airbag system is triggered in
the event of a front-end impact of a
certain severity. The ignition must be
switched on.
The inflated airbags cushion the
impact, thereby reducing the risk of
injury to the upper body and head of
the front seat occupants
considerably.
9 Warning
Optimum protection is only
provided when the seat is in the
proper position.
Seat position 3 34.
Keep the area in which the airbag
inflates clear of obstructions.
Fit the seat belt correctly and
engage securely. Only then is the
airbag able to protect.
Seats, restraints
Side airbag system
45
Curtain airbag system
The curtain airbag system consists of
an airbag in the roof frame on each
side. This can be identified by the
word AIRBAG on the roof pillars.
The side airbag system consists of an
airbag in each front seat backrest.
This can be identified by the word
AIRBAG.
The side airbag system is triggered in
the event of a side impact of a certain
severity. The ignition must be
switched on.
The inflated airbags cushion the
impact, thereby reducing the risk of
injury to the upper body and pelvis in
the event of a side-on collision
considerably.
9 Warning
Keep the area in which the airbag
inflates clear of obstructions.
Note
Only use protective seat covers that
have been approved for the vehicle.
Be careful not to cover the airbags.
The curtain airbag system is triggered
in the event of a side-on impact of a
certain severity. The ignition must be
switched on.
46
Seats, restraints
Airbag deactivation
The front passenger airbag system
must be deactivated if a child restraint
system is to be fitted on this seat. The
side airbag and curtain airbag
systems, the belt pretensioners and
all driver airbag systems will remain
active.
The inflated airbags cushion the
impact, thereby reducing the risk of
injury to the head in the event of a
side-on impact considerably.
9 Warning
Keep the area in which the airbag
inflates clear of obstructions.
The hooks in the roof frame are
only suitable for hanging up light
articles of clothing, without coat
hangers. Do not keep any items in
these clothes.
Use the ignition key to choose the
position:
c = front passenger airbags are
deactivated and will not
inflate in the event of a
collision. Control indicator
c illuminates continuously
in the centre console. A child
restraint system can be
installed in accordance with
the chart Child restraint
installation locations 3 49.
No adult person is allowed to
occupy the front passenger
seat.
d = front passenger airbags are
active. A child restraint
system must not be installed.
9 Danger
The front passenger airbag system
can be deactivated via a keyoperated switch on the right side of
the instrument panel.
Risk of fatal injury for a child using
a child restraint system on a seat
with activated front passenger
airbag.
Risk of fatal injury for an adult
person on a seat with deactivated

Control indicator for airbag
deactivation 3 84.
We recommend the Vauxhall child
restraint system which is tailored
specifically to the vehicle.
When a child restraint system is being
used, pay attention to the following
usage and installation instructions
and also those supplied with the child
restraint system.
Always comply with local or national
regulations. In some countries, the
use of child restraint systems is
forbidden on certain seats.
9 Warning
When using a child restraint
system on the front passenger
seat, the airbag systems for the
front passenger seat must be
deactivated; if not, the triggering of
the airbags poses a risk of fatal
injury to the child.
47
This is especially the case if rearfacing child restraint systems are
used on the front passenger seat.
Airbag deactivation 3 46.
Airbag label 3 41.
Selecting the right system
The rear seats are the most
convenient location to fasten a child
restraint system.
Children should travel facing
rearwards in the vehicle as long as
possible. This makes sure that the
child's backbone, which is still very
weak, is under less strain in the event
of an accident.
Suitable are restraint systems that
comply with valid UN ECE
regulations. Check local laws and
regulations for mandatory use of child
restraint systems.
Ensure that the child restraint system
to be installed is compatible with the
vehicle type.
48
Seats, restraints
Ensure that the mounting location of
the child restraint system within the
vehicle is correct, see following
tables.
Allow children to enter and exit the
vehicle only on the side facing away
from the traffic.
When the child restraint system is not
in use, secure the seat with a seat belt
or remove it from the vehicle.
Note
Do not affix anything on the child
restraint systems and do not cover
them with any other materials.
A child restraint system which has
been subjected to stress in an
accident must be replaced.

Loading information
Roof rack
■ Heavy objects in the load
compartment should be placed
against the seat backrests. Ensure
the backrests are securely
engaged. If objects can be stacked,
the heavier objects should be
placed at the bottom.
■ Secure objects with lashing straps
attached to the lashing eyes 3 69.
■ Secure loose objects in load
compartment to prevent sliding.
■ When transporting objects in the
load compartment, the backrests of
the rear seats must not be angled
forward.
■ Do not allow the load to protrude
above the upper edge of the
backrests.
■ Do not place any objects on the
load compartment cover or the
instrument panel, and do not cover
the sensor on top of the instrument
panel.
The roof rack has side rails attached
to the roof.
For safety reasons and to avoid
damage to the roof, the vehicle
approved roof rack system is
recommended. For further
information contact your workshop.
■ The load must not obstruct the
operation of the pedals, parking
brake and gear selector, or hinder
the freedom of movement of the
driver. Do not place any unsecured
objects in the interior.
■ Do not drive with an open load
compartment.
9 Warning
Always make sure that the load in
the vehicle is securely stowed.
Otherwise objects can be thrown
around inside the vehicle and
cause personal injury or damage
to the load or vehicle.
■ The payload is the difference
between the permitted gross
vehicle weight (see identification
plate 3 197) and the EC kerb
weight.
To calculate the payload, enter the
data for your vehicle in the Weights
table at the front of this manual.
The EC kerb weight includes
weights for the driver (68 kg),
Storage
luggage (7 kg) and all fluids (tank
90 % full).
Optional equipment and
accessories increase the kerb
weight.
■ Driving with a roof load increases
the sensitivity of the vehicle to
cross-winds and has a detrimental
effect on vehicle handling due to
the vehicle’s higher centre of
gravity. Distribute the load evenly
and secure it properly with retaining
straps. Adjust the tyre pressure and
vehicle speed according to the load
conditions. Check and retighten the
straps frequently.
Do not drive faster than 75 mph.
■ The permissible roof load is 75 kg.
The roof load is the combined
weight of the roof rack and the load.

Many systems will not function in this
situation (e.g. brake servo unit, power
steering). Driving in this manner is a
danger to yourself and others. All
systems function during an Autostop,
but there will be a controlled reduction
in power steering assist and vehicle
speed is reduced.
Stop-start system 3 120.
Pedals
To ensure the pedal travel is
uninhibited, there must be no mats in
the area of the pedals.
Steering
If power steering assist is lost
because the engine stops or due to a

The key lock release is designed to
prevent ignition key removal unless
the selector lever is in P.
Starting the vehicle at low
temperatures
Starting the engine without additional
heaters is possible down to -25 °С for
diesel engines and -30 °C for petrol
engines. Required is an engine oil
with the correct viscosity, the correct
fuel, performed services and a
sufficiently charged battery. With
temperatures below -30 °C the
automatic transmission requires a
warming phase of approx. 5 minutes.
The selector lever must be in position
P.
Automatic Starter Control
This function controls the engine
starting procedure. The driver does
not have to hold the key in position 3.
Once applied, the system will go on
starting automatically until the engine
is running. Because of the checking
procedure, the engine starts running
after a short delay.
Possible reasons for a non-starting
engine:
■ Clutch pedal not operated (manual
transmission)
■ Brake pedal not operated or
selector lever not in P or N
(automatic transmission)
■ Timeout occurred
Turbo engine warm-up
Upon start-up, engine available
torque may be limited for a short time,
especially when the engine
temperature is cold. The limitation is
to allow the lubrication system to fully
protect the engine.
Overrun cut-off
The fuel supply is automatically cut off
during overrun, i.e. when the vehicle
is driven with a gear engaged but
accelerator is released.
Stop-start system
The stop-start system helps to save
fuel and to reduce the exhaust
emissions. When conditions allow, it
switches off the engine as soon as the
vehicle is at a low speed or at a
standstill, e.g. at a traffic light or in a
traffic jam. It starts the engine
automatically as soon as the clutch is
depressed. A battery sensor ensures
that an Autostop is only performed if
the battery is sufficiently charged for
a restart.
Activation
The stop-start system is available as
soon as the engine is started, the
vehicle starts-off and the conditions
as stated below in this section are
fulfilled.
Driving and operating
Deactivation
Deactivate the stop-start system
manually by pressing the eco button.

■ release the clutch pedal
The engine will be switched off while
the ignition stays on.
An Autostop is indicated by the
needle at the AUTOSTOP position in
the tachometer.
During an Autostop, the heating
performance, power steering and
brake performance will be
maintained.
Conditions for an Autostop
The stop-start system checks if each
of the following conditions is fulfilled:
■ The stop-start system is not
manually deactivated
■ the bonnet is fully closed
■ the driver's door is closed or the
driver's seat belt is fastened
121
■ the battery is sufficiently charged

■ the engine is warmed up
■ the engine coolant temperature is
not too high
■ the engine exhaust temperature is
not too high, e.g. after driving with
high engine load
■ the ambient temperature is not too
low
■ the climate control system allows
an Autostop
■ the brake vacuum is sufficient
■ the self-cleaning function of the
diesel particle filter is not active
■ the vehicle has moved since the
last Autostop
Otherwise an Autostop will be
inhibited.
Ambient temperature near to the
freezing point can inhibit an Autostop.
Certain settings of the climate control
system may inhibit an Autostop. See
Climate control chapter for more
details.
122
Driving and operating
Immediately after motorway driving
an Autostop may be inhibited.
New vehicle running-in 3 119.
Battery discharge protection
To ensure reliable engine restarts,
several battery discharge protection
features are implemented as part of
the stop-start system.
Power saving measures
During an Autostop, several electrical
features such as auxiliary electric
heater or rear window heating are
disabled or switched into a power
saving mode. The fan speed of the
climate control system is reduced to
save power.

Driver Information Centre.
Control indicator - 3 85.
Restart of the engine by the
stop-start system
The selector lever has to be in neutral
to enable an automatic restart.
If one of the following conditions
occurs during an Autostop, the
engine will be restarted automatically
by the stop-start system:
■ The stop-start system is manually
deactivated
■ the bonnet is opened
■ the driver's seat belt is unfastened
and the driver's door is opened
■ the engine temperature is too low
■ the battery is discharged
■ the brake vacuum is not sufficient
■ the vehicle starts to move
■ the climate control system requests
an engine start
■ the air conditioning is manually
switched on
If the bonnet is not fully closed, a
warning message is displayed in the
Driver Information Centre.
If an electrical accessory, e.g. a
portable CD player, is connected to
the power outlet, a brief power drop
during engine restart might be
noticeable.
Parking
■ Do not park the vehicle on an easily
ignitable surface. The high
temperature of the exhaust system
could ignite the surface.
■ Always apply parking brake without
pressing release button. Apply as
firmly as possible on downhill or
uphill slopes. Depress the foot
brake at the same time to reduce
operating force.
■ Switch off the engine and ignition.
Turn the steering wheel until the
steering wheel lock engages.
Driving and operating
■ If the vehicle is on a level surface or
uphill slope, engage first gear or set
the selector lever to P before
switching off the ignition. On an
uphill slope, turn the front wheels
away from the kerb.
If the vehicle is on a downhill slope,
engage reverse gear or set the
selector lever to P before switching
off the ignition. Turn the front
wheels towards the kerb.
■ Lock the vehicle and activate the
anti-theft alarm system.
Note
In the event of an accident with
airbag deployment, the engine is
turned off automatically if the vehicle
comes to a standstill within a certain
time.

needs between 7 and 12 minutes.
Autostop is not available and fuel
consumption may be higher during
this period. The emission of smells
and smoke during this process is
normal.
Diesel particle filter
The diesel particle filter system filters
harmful soot particles out of the
exhaust gases. The system includes
a self-cleaning function that runs
automatically during driving without
any notification. The filter is cleaned
by periodically burning off the soot
particles at high temperature. This
process takes place automatically
under set driving conditions and may
Under certain driving conditions, e.g.
short distances, the system cannot
clean itself automatically.
If cleaning of the filter is required and
if previous driving conditions did not
enable automatic cleaning, it will be
indicated by control indicator %.

Drive systems
All-wheel drive
The All-Wheel Drive (AWD) system
enhances driving characteristics and
stability, and helps to achieve the best
possible driveability regardless of
ground surface. The system is always
active and cannot be deactivated.
The torque is distributed steplessly
between the wheels of the front and
rear axle, depending on the driving
conditions. Additionally the torque
between the rear wheels is distributed
depending on the surface.
For optimum system performance,
the vehicle's tyres should not have
varying degrees of wear.
When using a temporary spare
wheel, the AWD system is
automatically disabled.
The AWD system will also be
temporarily disabled to protect the
system from overheating if there is
excessive wheel spin. When the
system cools down, AWD will be
restored.
Driving and operating
The deactivation of the AWD system
will be indicated by a message on the
Driver Information Centre.
If a service message or warning
code S73 is displayed on the Driver
Information Centre, there is a
malfunction in the AWD system. Seek
the assistance of a workshop.
Vehicle messages 3 94, Towing the
vehicle 3 189.
Brakes
The brake system comprises two
independent brake circuits.
If a brake circuit fails, the vehicle can
still be braked using the other brake
circuit. However, braking effect is
achieved only when the brake pedal
is depressed firmly. Considerably
more force is needed for this. The
braking distance is extended. Seek
the assistance of a workshop before
continuing your journey.
When the engine is not running, the
support of the brake servo unit
disappears once the brake pedal has
been depressed once or twice.
Braking effect is not reduced, but
braking requires significantly greater
force. It is especially important to bear
this in mind when being towed.
Control indicator R 3 85.
Antilock brake system
Antilock brake system (ABS)
prevents the wheels from locking.
129
ABS starts to regulate brake pressure
as soon as a wheel shows a tendency
to lock. The vehicle remains
steerable, even during hard braking.
ABS control is made apparent
through a pulse in the brake pedal
and the noise of the regulation
process.
For optimum braking, keep the brake
pedal fully depressed throughout the
braking process, despite the fact that
the pedal is pulsating. Do not reduce
the pressure on the pedal.
After starting off the system performs
a self-test which may be audible.
Control indicator u 3 86.
Adaptive brake light
During full braking, all three brake
lights flash for the duration of ABS
control.
130
Driving and operating
Parking brake
Fault
9 Warning
If there is a fault in the ABS, the
wheels may be liable to lock due
to braking that is heavier than
normal. The advantages of ABS
are no longer available. During
hard braking, the vehicle can no
longer be steered and may
swerve.
Have the cause of the fault remedied
by a workshop.
Brake assist
If the brake pedal is depressed
quickly and forcefully, maximum
brake force is automatically applied
(full braking).
Maintain steady pressure on the
brake pedal for as long as full braking
is required. Maximum brake force is
automatically reduced when the
brake pedal is released.
Hill start assist
Always apply parking brake firmly
without operating the release button,
and apply as firmly as possible on a
downhill or uphill slope.
To release the parking brake, pull the
lever up slightly, press the release
button and fully lower the lever.
To reduce the operating forces of the
parking brake, depress the foot brake
at the same time.
Control indicator R 3 85.
The system helps prevent unintended
movement when driving away on
inclines.
When releasing the foot brake after
stopping on an incline, the brakes

Driving and operating
Ride control systems
Traction Control system
The Traction Control system (TC) is a
component of the Electronic Stability
Control (ESC) 3 131.
TC improves driving stability when
necessary, regardless of the type of
road surface or tyre grip, by
preventing the drive wheels from
spinning.
As soon as the drive wheels starts to
spin, engine output is reduced and
the wheel spinning the most is braked
individually. This considerably
improves the driving stability of the
vehicle on slippery road surfaces.
TC is operational after each engine

Important hints for using the
parking assist systems
9 Warning
Under certain circumstances,
various reflective surfaces on
objects or clothing as well as
external noise sources may cause
the system to fail to detect
obstacles.
Special attention has to be paid to
low obstacles which can damage
the lower part of the bumper. If
such obstacles leave the detection
area of the sensors during
approach of the vehicle, a
continuous warning tone will
sound.
Caution
Performance of the sensor can be
reduced when sensors are
covered, e.g. by ice or snow.
Performance of the parking assist
systems can be reduced due to
heavy loading.
Special conditions apply if there
are taller vehicles involved (e.g.
off-road vehicles, mini vans,
vans). Object identification in the
upper part of these vehicles
cannot be guaranteed.
Objects with a very small reflection
cross section, like objects of
narrow size or soft materials, may
not be detected by the system.
Parking assist will not avoid a
collision with objects which are out
of the detection range of the
sensors.
139
Note
The parking assist system
automatically detects factory-fitted
towing equipment. It is deactivated

Fuel
Fuel for petrol engines
Only use unleaded fuel that complies
with European standard EN 228 or
E DIN 51626-1 or equivalent.
Your engine is capable to run with
E10 fuel that fulfills these standards.
E10 fuel contains up to 10 %
bioethanol.
Use fuel with the recommended
octane rating 3 202. Use of fuel with
too low an octane rating can reduce
engine power and torque and slightly
increases fuel consumption.
Caution
Do not use fuel or fuel additives
that contain metallic compounds
such as manganese-based
additives. This may cause engine
damage.
146
Driving and operating
Caution
Caution
Use of fuel that does not comply to
EN 228 or E DIN 51626-1 or
equivalent can lead to deposits or
engine damage and may affect
your warranty.
Use of fuel that does not comply to
EN 590 or similar can lead to
engine powerloss, increased wear
or engine damage and loss of
warranty.
Caution
Use of fuel with too low an octane
rating could lead to uncontrolled
combustion and engine damage.
Fuel for diesel engines
Only use diesel fuel that complies
with EN 590.
In countries outside the European
Union use Euro-Diesel fuel with a
sulphur concentration below 50 ppm.
Do not use marine diesel oils, heating
oils, Aquazole and similar dieselwater emulsions. Diesel fuels must
not be diluted with fuels for petrol
engines.
Fuel for liquid gas
operation
Liquid gas is known as LPG
(Liquefied Petroleum Gas) or under
its French name GPL (Gaz de Pétrole
Liquéfié). LPG is also known as
Autogas.
LPG consists mainly of propane and
butane. The octane rating is between
105 and 115, depending on the
butane proportion. LPG is stored
liquid at around 5 - 10 bar pressure.
The boiling point depends on the
pressure and mixing ratio. At ambient
pressure, it is between -42 °C (pure
propane) and -0.5 °C (pure butane).
Caution
The system works at an ambient
temperature of approx. -8 °C to
100 °C.
Full function of the LPG system can
only be guaranteed with liquid gas
which complies with the minimum
requirements of DIN EN 589.
Fuel selector
Driving and operating
Pressing the LPG button switches
between petrol and liquid gas
operation as soon as the required
parameters (coolant temperature,
gas temperature and minimum
engine speed) have been reached.
The requirements are usually fulfilled
after approx. 60 seconds (depending
on exterior temperature) and the first
firm press on the accelerator. The
LED status shows the current
operating mode.

fuel is empty
As soon as the liquid gas tanks are
empty, petrol operation is
automatically engaged until the
ignition is switched off.
Every six months, run the petrol tank
down until control indicator i
illuminates, then refuel. This helps
maintain fuel quality and system
function for petrol operation.
Fill the tank completely at regular
intervals to prevent corrosion in the
tank.
Faults and remedies
If gas mode is not possible, check the
following:
■ Is there enough liquid gas present?
■ Is there enough petrol present for
starting?
Due to extreme temperatures in
combination with the gas
composition, it may take slightly
longer before the system switches
from petrol to gas mode.
In extreme situations, the system may
also switch back to petrol mode if the
minimum requirements are not
fulfilled.
Seek the assistance of a workshop in
the event of all other faults.
147
Caution
Repairs and adjustments may only
be made by trained specialists in
order to maintain the safety and
warranty on the LPG system.
Liquid gas is given a particular odour
(odorised) so that any leaks can be
detected easily.
9 Warning
If you smell gas in the vehicle or in
the immediate vicinity, switch to
petrol mode immediately. No
smoking. No naked flames or
ignition sources.
If the gas odour persists, do not start
the engine. Have the cause of the
fault remedied by a workshop.

General information
The official fuel consumption and
specific CO2 emission figures quoted
relate to the EU base model with
standard equipment.
Fuel consumption data and CO2
emission data are determined
according to regulation
R (EC) No. 715/2007 (in the latest
applicable version), taking into
151
consideration the vehicle weight in
running order, as specified by the
regulation.
The figures are provided only for the
purpose of comparison between
different vehicle variants and must
not be taken as a guarantee for the
actual fuel consumption of a
particular vehicle. Additional
equipment may result in slightly
higher results than the stated
consumption and CO2 figures.
Furthermore, fuel consumption is
dependent on personal driving style
as well as road and traffic conditions.
152
Driving and operating
Trailer hitch
General information
Only use towing equipment that has
been approved for your vehicle.
Entrust retrofitting of towing
equipment to a workshop. It may be
necessary to make changes that
affect the cooling system, heat
shields or other equipment.
Fitting of towing equipment could
cover the opening of the towing eye.
If this is the case, use the coupling ball
bar for towing. Always keep the
coupling ball bar in the vehicle.
Driving characteristics and
towing tips
Before attaching a trailer, lubricate
the coupling ball. However, do not do
so if a stabiliser, which acts on the
coupling ball, is being used to reduce
snaking movements.
For trailers with low driving stability
and caravan trailers with a permitted
gross vehicle weight of more than
1000 kg a speed of 50 mph must not
be exceeded; the use of a stabiliser is
recommended.
If the trailer starts snaking, drive more
slowly, do not attempt to correct the
steering and brake sharply if
necessary.
When driving downhill, drive in the
same gear as if driving uphill and
drive at a similar speed.
Adjust tyre pressure to the value
specified for full load 3 207.
Trailer towing
Trailer loads
The permissible trailer loads are
vehicle and engine-dependent
maximum values which must not be
exceeded. The actual trailer load is
the difference between the actual
gross weight of the trailer and the
actual coupling socket load with the
trailer coupled.
The permissible trailer loads are
specified in the vehicle documents. In
general, they are valid for gradients
up to max. 12 %.
The permitted trailer loads apply up to
the specified incline and up to an
altitude of 1000 metres above sea
level. Since engine power decreases
as altitude increases due to the air
becoming thinner, therefore reducing
climbing ability, the permissible gross
train weight also decreases by 10 %
for every 1000 metres of additional
altitude. The gross train weight does
not have to be reduced when driving
on roads with slight inclines (less than
8 %, e.g. motorways).
The permissible gross train weight
must not be exceeded. This weight is
specified on the identification plate
3 197.
Vertical coupling load
The vertical coupling load is the load
exerted by the trailer on the coupling
ball. It can be varied by changing the
weight distribution when loading the
trailer.
The maximum permissible vertical
coupling load (75 kg) is specified on
the towing equipment identification
plate and in the vehicle documents.
Always aim for the maximum load,
Driving and operating
especially in the case of heavy
trailers. The vertical coupling load
should never fall below 25 kg.
Rear axle load
The permissible axle loads (see
identification plate or vehicle
documents) must not be exceeded.

Tyres
Tyres of size 195/70 R16 and
215/60 R17 are only to be used as
winter tyres.
Winter tyres
Winter tyres improve driving safety at
temperatures below 7 °C and should
therefore be fitted on all wheels.
In accordance with country-specific
regulations, affix the speed sticker in
the driver's field of view.

Vehicle care
Tyre pressure
Check the pressure of cold tyres at
least every 14 days and before any
long journey. Do not forget the spare
wheel. This also applies to vehicles
with tyre pressure monitoring system.
Unscrew the valve cap.
Tyre pressure 3 207 and on the label
on the driver's door frame.
The tyre pressure data refers to cold
tyres. It applies to summer and winter
tyres.
Always inflate the spare tyre to the
pressure specified for full load.
The ECO tyre pressure serves to
achieve the smallest amount of fuel
consumption possible.
Incorrect tyre pressures will impair
safety, vehicle handling, comfort and
fuel economy and will increase tyre
wear.
Tyre pressures differ depending on
various options. For the correct tyre
pressure value, follow the procedure
below:
1. Identify the engine identifier code.
Engine data 3 202.
2. Identify the respective tyre.
The tyre pressure tables show all
possible tyre combinations 3 207.
For the tyres approved for your
vehicle, refer to the EEC Certificate of
Conformity provided with your vehicle
or other national registration
documents.
The driver is responsible for correct
adjustment of tyre pressure.
175
9 Warning
If the pressure is too low, this can
result in considerable tyre warmup and internal damage, leading to
tread separation and even to tyre
blow-out at high speeds.
Tyre pressure monitoring
system
The Tyre Pressure Monitoring
System (TPMS) uses radio and
sensor technology to check tyre
pressure levels.
All wheels must be equipped with
pressure sensors and the tyres must
have the prescribed pressure.
Note
In countries where the tyre pressure
monitoring system is legally
required, the use of wheels without
pressure sensors will invalidate the
vehicle type approval.
176
Vehicle care
The TPMS sensors monitor the air
pressure in the tyres and transmit tyre
pressure readings to a receiver
located in the vehicle.
Each tyre, including the spare, should
be checked monthly when cold and
inflated to the inflation pressure
recommended on the tyre pressure
label.
Control indicator w illuminates when
one or more tyres are significantly
under-inflated.
Check the tyre pressure as soon as
possible, and inflate them to the
recommended pressure 3 175.
When the system detects a
malfunction, w will flash for approx.
one minute and then remain
continuously illuminated. This
sequence will continue upon
subsequent vehicle start-ups as long
as the malfunction exists.
When w is illuminated, the system
may not be able to detect or signal low
tyre pressure as intended.
Tyre Pressure Monitoring
Operation
The TPMS is designed to warn the
driver when a low tyre pressure
condition exists. TPMS sensors are
mounted onto each tyre and wheel
assembly, excluding the spare tyre
and wheel assembly. The TPMS
sensors monitor the air pressure in
the tyres and transmit the tyre
pressure readings to a receiver
located in the vehicle.
When a low tyre pressure condition is
detected, w illuminates. Stop as soon
as possible and inflate the tyres to the
recommended tyre pressure 3 175.
Additionally a warning message or a
warning code is displayed in the
Driver Information Centre 3 94.
The low tyre pressure control
indicator and a warning message or
code come on at each ignition cycle
until the tyres are inflated to the
correct tyre pressure.
TPMS Malfunction Indicator and
Message Code
The TPMS will not function properly if
one or more of the TPMS sensors are
missing or inoperable. When the
system detects a malfunction, w
flashes for approx. one minute and
then illuminates. Additionally a
warning message or code is
displayed.
The indication by the TPMS
malfunction indicator and a warning
message or code will come on at each
ignition cycle until the problem is
corrected. Some of the conditions
that can cause these to come on are:
■ One of the tyres has been replaced
with the spare tyre which does not
have a TPMS sensor.
Vehicle care
■ The TPMS sensor matching
process was not done or not
completed successfully after
rotating the tyres. The malfunction
light and the warning message or
code should go off after
successfully completing the sensor
matching process. See "TPMS
Sensor Matching Process" later in
this section.
■ One or more TPMS sensors are
missing or damaged. The warning
message or code and the
malfunction light should go off
when the TPMS sensors are
installed and the sensor matching
process is performed successfully.
Consult your workshop for service.
■ Replacement tyres or wheels do
not match the original equipment
tyres or wheels. Tyres and wheels
other than those recommended
could prevent the TPMS from
functioning properly.
■ Operating electronic devices or
being near facilities using radio
wave frequencies similar to the
TPMS could cause the TPMS
sensors to malfunction.
If the TPMS is not functioning
properly, it cannot detect or signal
a low tyre condition. Consult your
workshop for service if the TPMS
malfunction light and a warning
message or code come on and stay
on.
TPMS Sensor Matching
Process
Each TPMS sensor has a unique
identification code. The identification
code must be matched to a new tyre/
wheel position after rotating the tyres
or replacing one or more of the TPMS
sensors. The TPMS sensor matching
process should also be performed
after replacing a spare tyre with a
road tyre containing the TPMS
sensor.
The malfunction light and the warning
message or code should go off at the
next ignition cycle. The sensors are
matched to the tyre/wheel positions,
using a TPMS relearn tool, in the
following order: driver side front tyre,
passenger side front tyre, passenger
177
side rear tyre, and driver side rear.
Consult your workshop for service or
to purchase a relearn tool. There are
two minutes to match the first tyre/
wheel position, and five minutes
overall to match all four tyre/wheel
positions. If it takes longer, the
matching process stops and must be
restarted.
The TPMS sensor matching process
is:
1. Apply the parking brake.
2. Turn the ignition on.
3. Use the MENU button on the turn
signal lever to select the Vehicle
Information Menu in the Driver
Information Centre (DIC).
4. Use the thumbwheel to scroll to
the tyre pressure menu.
5. Press the SET/CLR button to
begin the sensor matching
process. A message requesting
acceptance of the process should
display.
178
Vehicle care
6. Press the SET/CLR button again
to confirm the selection. The horn
sounds twice to signal the
receiver is in relearn mode.
7. Start with the driver side front tyre.
8. Place the relearn tool against the
tyre sidewall, near the valve stem.
Then press the button to activate
the TPMS sensor. A horn chirp
confirms that the sensor
identification code has been
matched to this tyre and wheel
position.
9. Proceed to the passenger side
front tyre, and repeat the
procedure in Step 8.
10. Proceed to the passenger side
rear tyre, and repeat the
procedure in Step 8.
11. Proceed to the driver side rear
tyre, and repeat the procedure in
Step 8. The horn sounds twice to
indicate the sensor identification
code has been matched to the
driver side rear tyre, and the
TPMS sensor matching process
is no longer active.
12. Turn off the ignition.
13. Set all four tyres to the
recommended air pressure level
as indicated on the tyre pressure
label.
Tread depth
Check tread depth at regular
intervals.
Tyres should be replaced for safety
reasons at a tread depth of 2-3 mm
(4 mm for winter tyres).
For safety reasons it is recommended
that the tread depth of the tyres on
one axle should not vary by more than
2 mm.
The legally permissible minimum
tread depth (1.6 mm) has been
reached when the tread has worn
down as far as one of the tread wear
indicators (TWI). Their position is
indicated by markings on the
sidewall.
If there is more wear at the front than
the rear, swap round front wheels and
rear wheels. Ensure that the direction
of rotation of the wheels is the same
as before.
Tyres age, even if they are not used.
We recommend tyre replacement
every 6 years.
Vehicle care
Changing tyre and wheel
size
If tyres of a different size than those
fitted at the factory are used, it may be
necessary to reprogramme the
speedometer as well as the nominal
tyre pressure and make other vehicle
modifications.
After converting to a different tyre
size, have the label with tyre
pressures replaced.
9 Warning
Use of unsuitable tyres or wheels
may lead to accidents and will
invalidate the vehicle type
approval.
Wheel covers
Wheel covers and tyres that are
factory-approved for the respective
vehicle and comply with all of the
relevant wheel and tyre combination
requirements must be used.
If the wheel covers and tyres used are
not factory-approved, the tyres must
not have a rim protection ridge.
Wheel covers must not impair brake
cooling.
179
Tyre chains
9 Warning
Use of unsuitable tyres or wheel
covers could lead to sudden
pressure loss and thereby
accidents.
Vehicles with alloy wheels: When
mounting steel wheels with alloy
wheel nuts, e.g. when changing to
winter tyres, the wheel covers cannot
be attached to the steel wheels.
Use tyre chains only on front wheels.
9 Warning
Damage may lead to tyre blowout.
Tyre chains are permitted on tyres of
size 195/70 R16.
Always use fine mesh chains suitable
for sport utility vehicles that add no
more than 12 mm to the tyre tread and
the inboard sides (including chain
lock).
180
Vehicle care
On tyres of size 215/55 R18, special
snow chains are only permitted when
they are designed with a rotating
chain belt on the tyre tread, no chain
links on the wheel inboard sides and
the chains add no more than 12 mm
to the tyre tread. For further
information regarding correct snow
chain usage for this tyre size, contact
a specialized vehicle parts dealer or
snow chain manufacturer.
Tyre chains are not permitted on tyres
of size 205/70 R16, 215/65 R16,
215/60 R17 and 225/45 R19.
The use of tyre chains is not permitted
on the temporary spare wheel.

rod – to the towing eye.
The towing eye must only be used for
towing and not for recovering the
vehicle.
Switch on ignition to release steering
wheel lock and to permit operation of
brake lights, horn and windscreen
wiper.
Transmission in neutral.
Never tow your vehicle equipped
with All Wheel Drive (AWD) with
the front or rear tyres on the road.
If you tow the vehicle equipped
with AWD while the front or rear
tyres are rolling on the road the
drive system in the vehicle could
be severely damaged. When
towing vehicles equipped with
AWD all 4 tyres may not be in
contact with the road.
Caution
Drive slowly. Do not drive jerkily.
Excessive tractive force can
damage the vehicle.
When the engine is not running,
considerably more force is needed to
brake and steer.
To prevent the entry of exhaust gases
from the towing vehicle, switch on the
air recirculation system 3 113 and
close the windows.
190
Vehicle care
Vehicles with manual transmission:
The vehicle must be towed facing
forwards. The maximum speed is
50 mph. In all other cases, and when
the transmission is defective, the front
axle must be raised off the ground.
Vehicle with automatic transmission:
Do not tow the vehicle using tow eye.
Towing with a tow rope could cause
severe automatic transmission
damage. When towing vehicle with
automatic transmission, use flat bed
or wheel lift equipment.
Seek the assistance of a workshop.
After towing, unscrew the towing eye.
Insert cap and close cap.
Towing another vehicle
Disengage the cap by using a
screwdriver and remove.
The towing eye is stowed with the
vehicle tools 3 173.
Screw in the towing eye as far as it will
go until it stops in a horizontal
position.
The lashing eye at the rear
underneath the vehicle must never be
used as a towing eye.
Attach a tow rope – or even better a
tow bar – to the towing eye.
The towing eye must only be used for
towing and not for recovering a
vehicle.
Switch on the hazard warning
flashers on both vehicles.
Vehicle care
Caution
Drive slowly. Do not drive jerkily.
Excessive tractive force can
damage the vehicle.
After towing, unscrew the towing eye.
Insert cap at the bottom and engage
cap.
Appearance care
Exterior care
Locks
The locks are lubricated at the factory
using a high quality lock cylinder
grease. Use de-icing agent only when
absolutely necessary, as this has a
degreasing effect and impairs lock
function. After using a de-icing agent,
have the locks regreased by a
workshop.
Washing
The paintwork of your vehicle is
exposed to environmental influences.
Wash and wax your vehicle regularly.
When using automatic vehicle
washes, select a programme that
includes waxing.
Bird droppings, dead insects, resin,
pollen and the like should be cleaned
off immediately, as they contain
aggressive constituents which can
cause paint damage.
191
If using a vehicle wash, comply with
the vehicle wash manufacturer's
instructions. The windscreen wiper
and rear window wiper must be
switched off. Remove antenna and
external accessories such as roof
racks etc.
If you wash your vehicle by hand,
make sure that the insides of the
wheel housings are also thoroughly
rinsed out.
Clean edges and folds on opened
doors and the bonnet as well as the
areas they cover.
Caution
Always use a cleaning agent with
a pH value of 4 to 9.
Do not use cleaning agents on hot
surfaces.
Have the door hinges of all doors
greased by a workshop.
Do not clean the engine compartment
with a steam-jet or high-pressure jet
cleaner.
192
Vehicle care
Thoroughly rinse and leather-off the
vehicle. Rinse leather frequently. Use
separate leathers for painted and
glass surfaces: remnants of wax on
the windows will impair vision.
Exterior lights
Headlight and other light covers are
made of plastic. Do not use any
abrasive or caustic agents, do not use
an ice scraper, and do not clean them
dry.
Polishing and waxing
Wax the vehicle regularly (at the
latest when water no longer beads).
Otherwise, the paintwork will dry out.
Polishing is necessary only if the paint
has become dull or if solid deposits
have become attached to it.
Paintwork polish with silicone forms a
protective film, making waxing
unnecessary.
Plastic body parts must not be treated
with wax or polishing agents.
Windows and windscreen wiper
blades
Use a soft lint-free cloth or chamois
leather together with window cleaner
and insect remover.
When cleaning the rear window from
inside, always wipe in parallel to the
heating element to prevent damage.
For mechanical removal of ice, use a
sharp-edged ice scraper. Press the
scraper firmly against the glass so
that no dirt can get under it and
scratch the glass.
Clean smearing wiper blades with a
soft cloth and window cleaner.
Wheels and tyres
Do not use high-pressure jet
cleaners.
Clean rims with a pH-neutral wheel
cleaner.
Rims are painted and can be treated
with the same agents as the body.
Paintwork damage
Rectify minor paintwork damage with
a touch-up pen before rust forms.
Have more extensive damage or rust
areas repaired by a workshop.
Underbody
Some areas of the vehicle underbody
have a PVC undercoating while other
critical areas have a durable
protective wax coating.
After the underbody is washed, check
the underbody and have it waxed if
necessary.
Bitumen/rubber materials could
damage the PVC coating. Have
underbody work carried out by a
workshop.
Before and after winter, wash the
underbody and have the protective
wax coating checked.
Vehicle care
Liquid gas system
9 Danger
Liquid gas is heavier than air and
can collect in sink points.
Take care when performing work
at the underbody in a pit.
For painting work and when using a
drying booth at a temperature above
60 °C, the liquid gas system must be
completely evacuated.
Do not make any modifications to the
liquid gas system.
Towing equipment
Do not clean the coupling ball bar with
a steam-jet or high-pressure jet
cleaner.
Rear carrier system
Clean the rear carrier system with a
steam-jet or high-pressure jet cleaner
at least once a year.
Operate the rear carrier system
periodically if not in regular use, in
particular during winter.
Interior care
Interior and upholstery
Only clean the vehicle interior,
including the instrument panel fascia
and panelling, with a dry cloth or
interior cleaner.
Clean the leather upholstery with
clear water and a soft cloth. In case of
heavy soiling, use leather care.
The instrument cluster and the
displays should only be cleaned using
a soft damp cloth. If necessary use a
weak soap solution.
Clean fabric upholstery with a
vacuum cleaner and brush. Remove
stains with an upholstery cleaner.
Clothing fabrics may not be
colourfast. This could cause visible
discolourations, especially on lightcoloured upholstery. Removable
stains and discolourations should be
cleaned as soon as possible.
Clean seat belts with lukewarm water
or interior cleaner.
193
Caution
Close Velcro fasteners as open
Velcro fasteners on clothing could
damage seat upholstery.
The same applies to clothing with
sharp-edged objects, like zips or
belts or studded jeans.
Plastic and rubber parts
Plastic and rubber parts can be
cleaned with the same cleaner as
used to clean the body. Use interior
cleaner if necessary. Do not use any
other agent. Avoid solvents and petrol
in particular. Do not use highpressure jet cleaners.

products not in line with these
specifiations will not be covered by
the warranty.
9 Warning
Operating materials are
hazardous and could be
poisonous. Handle with care. Pay
attention to information given on
the containers.
Engine oil
Engine oil is identified by its quality
and its viscosity. Quality is more
important than viscosity when
selecting which engine oil to use. The
oil quality ensures e.g. engine
cleanliness, wear protection and oil
195
aging control, whereas viscosity
grade gives information on the oil's
thickness over a temperature range.
Dexos is the newest engine oil quality
that provides optimum protection for
gasoline and diesel engines. If it is
unavailable, engine oils of other listed
qualities have to be used.
Recommendations for gasoline
engines are also valid for
Compressed Natural Gas (CNG),
Liquified Petroleum Gas (LPG) and
Ethanol (E85) fuelled engines.
Select the appropriate engine oil
based on its quality and on the
minimum ambient temperature
3 199.
Topping up engine oil
Engine oils of different manufacturers
and brands can be mixed as long as
they comply with the required engine
oil quality and viscosity.
Use of engine oil with only
ACEA A1/B1 or only A5/B5 quality is
prohibited, since it can cause longterm engine damage under certain
operating conditions.
196
Service and maintenance
Select the appropriate engine oil
based on its quality and on the
minimum ambient temperature
3 199.
Additional engine oil additives
The use of additional engine oil
additives could cause damage and
invalidate the warranty.
Engine oil viscosity grades
The SAE viscosity grade gives
information of the thickness of the oil.
Multigrade oil is indicated by two
figures, e.g. SAE 5W-30. The first
figure, followed by a W, indicates the
low temperature viscosity and the
second figure the high temperature
viscosity.
Select the appropriate viscosity grade
depending on the minimum ambient
temperature 3 199.
All of the recommended viscosity
grades are suitable for high ambient
temperatures.
Coolant and antifreeze
Use only organic acid type-long life
coolant (LLC) antifreeze approved for
the vehicle. Consult a workshop.
The system is factory filled with
coolant designed for excellent
corrosion protection and frost
protection down to approx. -28 °C. In
northern countries with very low
temperatures the factory filled coolant
provides frost protection down to
approx. -37 °C. This concentration
should be maintained all year round.
The use of additional coolant
additives that intend to give additional
corrosion protection or seal against
minor leaks can cause function
problems. Liability for consequences
resulting from the use of additional
coolant additives will be rejected.
Brake and clutch fluid
Over time, brake fluid absorbs
moisture which will reduce braking
effectiveness. The brake fluid should
therefore be replaced at the specified
interval.

Vehicle data recording
and privacy
Event data recorders
Data storage modules in the
vehicle
A large number of electronic
components of your vehicle contain
data storage modules temporarily or
permanently storing technical data
about the condition of the vehicle,
events and errors. In general, this
technical information documents the
condition of parts, modules, systems
or the environment:
■ Operating conditions of system
components (e.g. filling levels)
■ Status messages of the vehicle and
its single components (e.g. number
of wheel revolutions / rotational
speed, deceleration, lateral
acceleration)
■ Dysfunctions and defects in
important system components
210
Customer information
■ Vehicle reactions in particular
driving situations (e.g. inflation of
an airbag, activation of the stability
regulation system)
■ Environmental conditions (e.g.
temperature)
These data are exclusively technical
and help identifying and correcting
errors as well as optimizing vehicle
functions.
Motion profiles indicating travelled
routes cannot be created with these
data.
If services are used (e.g. repair
works, service processes, warranty
cases, quality assurance),
employees of the service network
(manufacturer included) are able to
read out this technical information
from the event and error data storage
modules applying special diagnostic
devices. If required, you will receive
further information at these
workshops. After an error has been
corrected, the data are deleted from
the error storage module or they are
constantly overwritten.
When using the vehicle, situations
may occur in which these technical
data related to other information
(accident report, damages on the
vehicle, witness statements etc.) may
be associated with a specific person possibly, with the assistance of an
expert.
Additional functions contractually
agreed upon with the client (e.g.
vehicle location in emergency cases)
allow the transmission of particular
vehicle data from the vehicle.
Radio Frequency
Identification (RFID)
RFID technology is used in some
vehicles for functions such as tyre
pressure monitoring and ignition
system security. It is also used in
connection with conveniences such
as radio remote controls for door
locking/unlocking and starting, and invehicle transmitters for garage door
openers. RFID technology in
Vauxhall vehicles does not use or
record personal information or link
with any other Vauxhall system
containing personal information.
