Safe Driving

For Safe Driving

The following pages explain your vehicle's safety features and how to use them 
properly. The safety precautions below are ones that we consider to be among the 
most important.

Important Safety Precautions

Always wear your seat belt

A seat belt is your best protection in all types of collisions. Airbags are designed to 
supplement seat belts, not replace them. So even though your vehicle is equipped 
with airbags, make sure you and your passengers always wear your seat belts, and 
wear them properly.

Restrain all children

Children aged 12 and under should ride properly restrained in a back seat, not the 
front seat. Infants and small children should be restrained in a child restraint system. 
Larger children should use a booster seat and a lap/shoulder seat belt until they can 
use the belt properly without a booster seat.

Be aware of airbag hazards

While airbags can save lives, they can cause serious or fatal injuries to occupants 
who sit too close to them, or are not properly restrained. Infants, young children, 
and short adults are at the greatest risk. Be sure to follow all instructions and 
warnings in this manual.

Don't drink and drive

Alcohol and driving don't mix. Even one drink can reduce your ability to respond to 
changing conditions, and your reaction time gets worse with every additional drink. 
So don't drink and drive, and don't let your friends drink and drive, either.

Some countries prohibit the use of mobile phones 
other than hands-free devices by the driver while 
driving.

Safe Driving

Pay appropriate attention to the task of driving safely

Engaging in mobile phone conversation or other activities that keep you from paying 
close attention to the road, other vehicles, and pedestrians could lead to a crash. 
Remember, situations can change quickly, and only you can decide when it is safe to 
divert some attention away from driving.

Control your speed

Excessive speed is a major factor in crash injuries and deaths. Generally, the higher 
the speed, the greater the risk, but serious injuries can also occur at lower speeds. 
Never drive faster than is safe for current conditions, regardless of the maximum 
speed posted.

Keep your vehicle in safe condition

Having a tyre blowout or a mechanical failure can be extremely hazardous.
To reduce the possibility of such problems, check your tyre pressures and condition 
frequently, and perform all regularly scheduled maintenance.

Do not leave children unattended in the vehicle

Children, pets and people needing assistance left unattended in the vehicle may be 
injured if they activate one or more of the vehicle controls. They may also cause the 
vehicle to move, resulting in a crash in which they and/or another person(s) can be 
injured or killed. Also, depending on the ambient temperature, the temperature of 
the interior may reach extreme levels, which can result in harm or death. Even if the 
climate control system is on, never leave them in the vehicle unattended as the 
climate control system can shut off at any time.

Your Vehicle’s Safety Features

The following checklist will help you take an active role in protecting yourself and 
your passengers.

1

Your Vehicle’s Safety Features

Your vehicle is equipped with many features that 
work together to help to protect you and your 
passengers during a crash.

Some features do not require any action on your part. 
These include a strong steel framework that forms a 
safety cage around the passenger compartment, 
front and rear crush zones, a collapsible steering 
column, and tensioners that tighten the front and 
rear seat belts in a sufficient crash.

However, you and your passengers cannot take full 
advantage of these features unless you remain seated 
in the correct position and always wear your seat 
belts. In fact, some safety features can contribute to 
injuries if they are not used properly.

Safe Driving

Safety Checklist

For the safety of you and your passengers, make a habit of checking these items 
each time before you drive. Check if the charging cable is connected to the vehicle 
and disconnect it if it is. The vehicle will not operate with the cable connected.

Adjust your seat to a position suitable for driving. Be sure the front seats are 
adjusted as far to the rear as possible while allowing the driver to control the 
vehicle. Sitting too close to a front airbag can result in serious or fatal injury in a 
crash.

Seats

 P. 227

Adjust head restraints to the proper position. Head restraints are most effective 
when the centre of the head restraint aligns with the centre of your head. Taller 
persons should adjust their head restraint to the highest position.

2

Adjusting the Front Head Restraints

 P. 232

Always wear your seat belt, and make sure you wear it properly. Confirm that any 
passengers are properly belted as well.

Fastening a Seat Belt

 P. 51

Protect children by using seat belts or child restraint systems according to a child's 
age, height and weight.

Seat Belts

About Your Seat Belts

Seat belts are the single most effective safety device because they keep you 
connected to the vehicle so that you can take advantage of many built-in safety 
features. They also help to keep you from being thrown against the inside of the 
vehicle, against any passengers, or out of the vehicle. When worn properly, seat 
belts also keep your body properly positioned in a crash so that you can take full 
advantage of the additional protection provided by the airbags.

In addition, seat belts help to protect you in almost every type of crash, including:

-

frontal impacts

-

side impacts

-

rear impacts

-

rollovers

About Your Seat Belts

WARNING: 

Seat belts are designed to bear upon the 

bony structure of the body, and should be worn low 
across the front of the pelvis or the pelvis, chest and 
shoulders, as applicable; wearing the lap section of 
the belt across the abdominal area must be avoided.

WARNING: 

Seat belts should be adjusted as firmly as 

possible, consistent with comfort, to provide the 
protection for which they have been designed. A 
slack belt will greatly reduce the protection afforded 
to the wearer.

WARNING: 

Belts should not be worn with straps 

twisted.

WARNING: 

Each belt assembly must only be used by 

one occupant; it is dangerous to put a belt around a 
child being carried on the occupant’s lap.

3

WARNING

Not wearing a seat belt properly increases 
the chance of serious injury or death in a 
crash, even though your vehicle has 
airbags.

Be sure you and your passengers always 
wear seat belts and wear them properly.

Lap/shoulder seat belts

All four seating positions are equipped with lap/shoulder seat belts with emergency 
locking retractors. In normal driving the retractor lets you move freely while keeping 
some tension on the belt. During a collision or sudden stop the retractor locks to 
restrain your body.

The seat belt must be properly secured when using a front-facing child restraint 
system.

About Your Seat Belts

If you extend the seat belt too quickly, it will lock in 
place. If this happens, slightly retract the seat belt, 
then extend it slowly.

Seat belts cannot completely protect you in every 
crash. But in most cases, seat belts can reduce your 
risk of serious injury.

Most countries require you to wear seat belts. Take 
time to familiarise with the legal requirements of the 
countries in which you will drive.

Safe Driving

Proper use of seat belts

Follow these guidelines for proper use:

All occupants should sit upright, well back in the seat, and remain in that position 
for the duration of the trip. Slouching and leaning reduce the effectiveness of the 
belt and can increase the chance of serious injury in a crash.

Never place the shoulder part of a lap/shoulder seat belt under your arm or 
behind your back. This could cause very serious injuries in a crash.

Two people should never use the same seat belt. If they do, they could be very 
seriously injured in a crash.

Do not put any accessories on the seat belts. Devices intended to improve comfort 
or reposition the shoulder part of a seat belt can reduce the protective capability 
and increase the chance of serious injury in a crash.

Front seats

The seat belt system includes an indicator on 
the instrument panel to remind the driver or a 
front passenger or both to fasten their seat 
belts. 
If you set the power mode to ON and a seat 
belt is not fastened, the indicator will come 
on.

The beeper will periodically sound and the 
indicator will blink if you start driving without 
fastening a seat belt.

Seat Belt Reminder

Seat Belt Reminder

The indicator will also come on if a front passenger 
does not fasten their seat belt within six seconds after 
the power mode is set to ON.

When no one is sitting in the front passenger’s seat, 
the indicator will not come on and the beeper will not 
sound.

If the indicator comes on or the beeper sounds with 
no one sitting in the front passenger’s seat. Check if:

There is nothing heavy placed on the front 
passenger seat.

The driver’s seat belt is fastened.

If the indicator does not light when the passenger is 
seated and is not fastened, something may be 
interfering with the occupant detection sensor. 
Check if:

A cushion is placed on the seat.

The front passenger is not sitting properly.

If none of these conditions exist, have your vehicle 
checked by a dealer.

Rear seats

Your vehicle monitors rear seat belt use. A 
driver information interface notifies you if any 
of the rear seat belts are not used with a 
seating position occupied.

The display appears when:

A rear door is opened and closed.

Any of the rear passengers fastened or 
unfastened their seat belt.

The indicator blinks and beeper sounds if any 
rear passenger’s seat belt is unfastened while 
driving.

Seat Belt Reminder

When the luggage is loaded on the rear seats and the 
sensor detects the weight, the warning indicator may 
blink and the beeper may sound.

The sensor may not detect a passenger and not work 
properly if a child or small person is sitting in or a 
cushion is placed on the rear seats.

Do not fold down the seat-back with leaving luggage 
on the rear seats. 
The sensor may not work properly or be broken.

If none of these conditions exist, have your vehicle 
checked by a dealer.
