Always make sure that objects carried in the vehicle are secured properly. Unsecured items can cause death or serious injury in the event of an impact or sudden manoeuvre.


Never allow passengers to travel in the luggage compartment under any circumstances. All vehicle occupants should be seated correctly and must wear a seat belt at all times when the vehicle is in motion. Failure to do so could result in serious injury or death in the event of a collision.


Make sure the locking mechanism is fully engaged when the seatback is raised. An unsecured seatback may not properly support an occupant during a collision or sudden stop.


Make sure the seat belts are correctly routed and not trapped behind the seats when raising the rear seatbacks. An incorrectly routed seat belt may not properly restrain an occupant during a collision or sudden stop.


Make sure the head restraints are raised to the correct position before the seats are used by a passenger. The head restraint must be positioned correctly to restrain rearward movement of the head in a collision.


Always take note of the safety warnings and labels attached to the rear seats. The labels give advice on safely folding and raising the rear seats.


Before folding a rear seat, make sure that the seat is not occupied. Make sure that no other occupant has any part of the body on the seat cushion. Make sure no one reaches into the area of the seat being folded. Pay particular attention when one seat is already folded. Reaching into this area creates a risk of entrapment and serious injury.


Beware of trapping fingers when raising and lowering the rear seatbacks.


Take care when retrieving items that have fallen down the side, back, front or underneath the seat. Sharp objects may be present in these areas, which could present a risk of injury. Always stop the vehicle before retrieving items.


Before folding the rear seats, make sure that all objects have been removed from the seat being folded. Failure to remove any objects may damage the seat.

The rear seatbacks can be folded or raised individually.

To fold a rear seatback:

  1. Open the boot.

  2. Pull the relevant seat release.

  3. Fold the seatback forward. Repeat the process for the other seatback, if required.

The centre rear seatback can be released separately. To release the centre rear seatback:

  1. Raise the centre head restraint to gain access to the release button. See REPOSACABEZAS TRASEROS.

  2. Press and hold the release button. Simultaneously fold the centre rear seatback forward.

To raise the centre rear seatback: Manually lift the centre rear seatback until it locks firmly into the upright position. Return the head restraint to the correct position.

Centre rear seat belt release:

To improve access to the luggage compartment, the centre rear seat belt can be released from its buckle before folding the seatback. To release the centre rear seat belt, press the release button using a seat belt tongue from an outboard rear seat (1). The centre rear seat belt (2) now fully retracts to the stored position.


Make sure that the centre rear seat belt is correctly refitted to the buckle when the rear seatback is returned to the raised position. An incorrectly secured seat belt may increase the risk of serious injury or death in the event of an accident.
