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

Every time a child travels in the vehicle, observe the following:

  • Use appropriate child restraints.

  • Carefully follow the instructions provided by the manufacturer of the restraint system.

  • Adjust the harness for every child on every journey.

  • Make sure that all slack is removed from the adult seat belt.

  • Make sure that any seat belt positioning sliders are adjusted so there is no slack in the belt after fastening.

  • Always attach the top tether when fitting an i-Size or ISOFIX child seat, if applicable to the seat type.

  • Always check the security of the child restraint.

  • Avoid dressing the child in bulky clothing. Do not place any objects between the child and the restraint system.

  • Regularly check the fit and condition of the child seat. If the fit is poor, or wear or damage is visible, replace the restraint immediately.

  • Set a good example and always wear a seat belt.

  • For child seats fitted with a support leg, adjust the leg so that it rests firmly on the floor of the vehicle.

  • The centre rear seat may not be suitable for use with child seats that feature a support leg that rests on the floor. Refer to the child seat manufacturer's information.

  • If the vehicle's head restraints interfere with the fitment of a child restraint, remove the head restraint and stow securely. Always replace the head restraint when the child restraint is removed.

  • If a child restraint is provided with a lap belt guide it should be used as per the child restraint manufacturer's instructions.

  • The third row seat is not suitable for the use with child seats that feature a support leg that rests on the floor.

Care must be taken not to load any part of the child seat when repositioning the front seat. The space available for front seat occupants is reduced by the fitment of a rearward-facing child seat in the rear.
