In this section you will find important information, tips and notes on the subject of passive safety in your vehicle.

We have combined everything here which you should be familiar with, for example, regarding seat belts, airbags, child seats and safety of children.

WARNING

  • This chapter contains important information on how to use the vehicle for the driver and his occupants.
  • You will find further information on safety, which concerns you and those travelling with you, in the following chapters of this Owner's Manual.
  • The complete on-board literature should always be in the vehicle. This applies in particular, if you rent out or sell the vehicle.

Before every journey

For your own safety and the safety of the people travelling with you, please pay attention to the following points before setting off.

  • Ensure that the lighting and the turn signal system are functioning properly.
  • Make sure that the function of the wiper and the condition of the wiper blades are free of any defects.
  • Ensure that all of the windows offer good visibility to the outside.
  • Adjust the rear-view mirror so that vision to the rear is guaranteed.
  • Ensure that the mirrors are not covered.
  • Check the tyre inflation pressure.
  • Check the engine oil, brake fluid and coolant level.
  • Secure all items of luggage.
  • Do not exceed the permissible axle loads and permissible gross weight of the vehicle – risk of accident.
  • Close all doors and the engine compartment and luggage compartment lid.
  • Ensure that no objects can obstruct the pedals.
  • Protect children in suitable child seats with correctly fastened seat belts » page 19, Transporting children safely.
  • Adopt the correct seated position » page 7, Correct and safe seated position. Tell your passengers to assume the correct seated position.

Driving safety

The driver is fully responsible for himself and his occupants. If your driving safety is effected, you place yourself and the oncoming traffic at risk.

The following guidelines must therefore be observed.

  • Do not get distracted from concentrating on the traffic situation, e.g. by your passengers or mobile phone calls.
  • Never drive when your driving ability is impaired, e.g. through medication, alcohol or drugs.
  • Keep to the traffic regulations and the permissible speed limit.
  • Always adjust the driving speed to the road, traffic and weather conditions.
  • Take regular breaks on long journeys – at least every two hours.

Safety equipment

The following list contains only part of the safety equipment in your vehicle.

  • Three-point seat belts for all the seats.
  • Belt force limiters for the front seats.
  • Belt tensioners for the front seats.
  • Seat belt height adjusters for the front seats.
  • Front airbag for the driver and the front passenger.
  • Side airbags.
  • Head airbags.
  • Anchoring points for child seats using the ISOFIX system.
  • Anchoring points for child seats using the TOP TETHER system.
  • Head restraints adjustable for height.
  • Adjustable steering column.

The specified safety equipment works together, in order to optimally protect you and those travelling with you in accident situations.

The safety equipment does not protect you or the people travelling with you, if you or your occupants adopt an incorrect seated position or the equipment is not correctly adjusted or used.

If the seat belt is not fastened properly, this may result in injuries during an accident caused by the deployed airbag.
