Safety
Wear the seat belt correctly
Make sure that the shoulder section of
the belt is positioned over the centre of
the shoulder and move the lap section
as far down over the hips as possible.
The belts should always be worn so
that they fit tightly (see illustration).
25 cm
Safety of children in the vehicle
Children under 12 should travel on the rear seat. They
must be protected by a child restraint system which
complies with the European standard ECE-R 44
and is suitable for the child’s height and
weight. The safest place for the child restraint
system is behind the front passenger’s seat.
Adjust seat and sit in correct position
The front seats should not be positioned too
close to the steering wheel or dashboard. Maintain a distance of at least 25 cm and sit in a normal upright position. The top of the
head restraint should be at eye level or higher. Always keep your feet in the footwell.

WARNING!
Please follow the instructions in the Owner’s
Manual and read the instructions provided
by the child seat manufacturer.
