Make sure to read and fully understand the relevant warnings before using any of the features in this section. See SEAT BELT SAFETY.


Always check and replace the seat belt pre-tensioners after any activation. Failure to replace the pre-tensioners reduces the effectiveness of the Supplementary Restraint System (SRS).

Seat belt pre-tensioners are fitted to the front, and all rear outboard seats.

The seat belt pre-tensioners activate in conjunction with the SRS to provide additional protection in the event of a severe frontal impact. The seat belt pre-tensioners automatically reduce any slack in a seat belt. As a result, forward movement of an occupant on a seat fitted with a pre-tensioner is reduced.


The rear centre seat is not fitted with a seat belt pre-tensioner.

Load limiters are fitted to all seats, except the second row centre seats.

Load limiters help to regulate tension of a seat belt in a severe impact.


On some derivatives the centre second row seat is also fitted with a pre-tensioner and load limiter.
