CHILD SAFETY SEATS
Only fit a child safety seat of a type approved for
the specific seating positions in your vehicle
(see table), and ensure the seat manufacturer's
fitting instructions are followed exactly.
Child Restraints
WARNING
Do not use a child restraint on a seat
with an operational airbag in front of
it. There is a risk of death or serious
injury when the airbag deploys.
For optimum safety, children should travel in
the rear of the vehicle at all times, front
passenger seat travel is not recommended.
However, if it is essential that a child travel in
the front, set the seat fully rearward.
Crash statistics show that children are
safest when properly restrained in a
child or infant restraint system that is
secured in a rear seating position.
Note: In some countries legislation prohibits
children travelling in the front of a vehicle.
Ensure that you are familiar with the legislation
in force where the vehicle is being used and are
in full compliance.
Do not use a forward facing child seat
until the child using it is above the
minimum weight of 9 kg (20 lb.) and
able to sit up unaided. Up to the age of 18
months, a child's spine and neck are not
sufficiently developed to avoid injury in a
frontal impact.
Holding a baby or child in a person's arms is
not a substitute for a child restraint system.
In an accident, a baby or a child held in a
person’s arms can be crushed between the
vehicle's interior and a restrained person.
Do not allow a baby or infant to be
held or carried on the lap. The force of
a crash can increase effective body
weight by as much as thirty times, making it
impossible to hold onto the child. Children
typically require the use of a booster seat
appropriate to their age and size, thereby
enabling the seat belts to be properly fitted,
reducing the risk of injury in a crash. Children
could be endangered in a crash if their child
restraints are not properly secured in the
vehicle.
This symbol is affixed to the end of
the facia on the passenger side. Its
purpose is to warn against the use
of a rear facing child seat when the
front passenger airbag is fitted and operational.
WARNING
Original text according to ECE R94.01.
Extreme Hazard! Do not use a
rearward facing child restraint on a
seat protected by an airbag in front of it!
Do not use a child seat that hooks over
the seat back. This type of seat cannot
be satisfactorily secured and is
unlikely to be safe for your child.
The seat belts fitted to your vehicle are
designed for adults and larger children. It is
very important for all infants and children under
12 years of age to be restrained in a suitable
child safety seat appropriate to their age and
size.

However, availability of child restraints may
change. Please refer to your Land Rover
Dealer/Authorised Repairer for the latest
recommendation.
Booster seats
In a situation where a child is too large to fit into
a child safety seat but is still too small to safely
use just the three point belt, a booster seat is
recommended for maximum safety. Follow the
manufacturer's instructions for fitting and use,
and then adjust the seat belt to suit.
Note: The legislation which governs how and
where children should be carried when
travelling in a vehicle is subject to change. It is
the responsibility of the driver to comply with
all regulations in force.

ISOFIX CHILD RESTRAINTS
Two lower (first illustration) and one upper
tether anchorages (second illustration) are
provided at each seating position equipped to
accept Isofix child restraints.
In some markets, child restraint systems
complying with International Standard
Organisation regulations and approved for
fitting in your vehicle may be available. These
restraints are different to conventional child
seats, requiring anchor bars built into the
vehicle seat in order to accept the ISOFIX
locking mechanism.
This symbol on the label sewn into
the seats indicates the location of
the ISOFIX lower anchorages.
H4229
Note: Always ensure that if an upper tether is
provided, it is fitted and tightened correctly.
WARNING
Do not attempt to fit ISOFIX restraints
to the centre seating position. The
anchor bars are not designed to hold
an ISOFIX restraint in this position.
If removing a head restraint in order
to fit a child restraint, always secure
the head restraint when storing it. If
left loose in the vehicle it may cause death or
serious injury during sudden braking or an
impact.
H4228
Both outer, rear (second row) seating positions
in your vehicle are equipped to accept ISOFIX
restraints.

Child Restraints
Fitting ISOFIX child restraints
ISOFIX child restraints should only be fitted in
the two outer seating positions of the second
row seats. Anchor bars built into the rear seat
frame (arrowed in first illustration on previous
page), enable the ISOFIX restraints to be
securely attached to the vehicle seat in these
positions only.
Once the ISOFIX restraint is installed, you are
recommended to test the security of the
installation before seating the child. Attempt to
twist the restraint from side to side and to pull
the restraint away from the vehicle seat; then
check that the anchors are still securely in
place.
In addition, two tether anchor bars are fitted to
the back of the rear seats (see second
illustration on previous page), to secure child
restraint anchor straps.
If the restraint is not correctly
anchored, there is a significant risk of
injury to the child in the event of a
collision or emergency braking.
Always ensure that, if an upper tether is
provided, it is secured and tightened properly
as this provides the maximum protection for
your child.
Child restraint anchorages are
designed to withstand only those
loads imposed by correctly fitted child
restraints. Under no circumstances are they
to be used for adult seat belts, harnesses or
for attaching other items or equipment to the
vehicle.
WARNING
When fitting ISOFIX child restraints, always
follow the instructions supplied by the
manufacturer of the restraint.
Note: The information contained in the following table may not be applicable to all countries. If you
are in any doubt regarding the type and fitment of child seats seek advice from your
Dealer/Authorised Repairer.

TETHER STRAP ANCHORAGES
(Australia only)
Provision is made in the rear seats for the fitting
of up to three child seats, of the type that
requires tether strap anchorage points.
WARNING
There are three tether strap anchorage points.
These should be used to attach tether straps
from child seats or restraint systems.
Child restraint anchorages are
designed to withstand only those
loads imposed by correctly fitted child
restraints. Under no circumstances are they
to be used for adult seat belts, harnesses or
for attaching other items or equipment to the
vehicle.
Two anchorage points are fitted to the back of
the second row seat, these should be used for
the two outer seating positions.
A third, single anchorage point is located in the
floor panel behind the centre rear seat, for
attaching a tether strap from the centre seat
position.
Using a small flat-bladed screwdriver, remove
the circular cover to reveal the child seat
anchorage point (see left inset).
