Sitting in the correct position

WARNINGS:


WARNINGS:
Do not adjust the seats when the vehicle is moving.

Only when you use the seat belt properly, can it hold you in a position that allows the airbag to achieve its optimum effect.

When you use them properly, the seat, head restraint, seat belt and airbags will provide optimum protection in the event of a collision. We recommend that you: Х sit in an upright position with the base of your spine as far back as possible.

Х do not recline the seatback more than 30 degrees.

Х adjust the head restraint so that the top of it is level with the top of your head and as far forwards as possible, remaining comfortable.

Х keep sufficient distance between yourself and the steering wheel. We recommend a minimum of 250 millimetres (10 inches) between your breastbone and the airbag cover.

Х hold the steering wheel with your arms slightly bent.

Х bend your legs slightly so that you can press the pedals fully.

Х position the shoulder strap of the seat belt over the centre of your shoulder and position the lap strap tightly across your hips.

Make sure that your driving position is comfortable and that you can maintain full control of your vehicle.
