Side Airbags

66

Safe Driving

When the sensors detect a moderate-to-
severe side impact, the control unit signals the 
side airbag on the impact side to immediately 
inflate.

When a side airbag deploys with little or no visible damage

Because the airbag system senses sudden acceleration, a strong impact to the side 
of the vehicle's framework can cause a side airbag to deploy. In such cases, there 
may be little or no damage, but the side impact sensors detected a severe enough 
impact to deploy the airbag.

When a side airbag may not deploy, even though visible damage appears 
severe

It is possible for a side airbag not to deploy during an impact that results in 
apparently severe damage. This can occur when the point of impact was towards 
the far front or rear of the vehicle, or when the vehicle's crushable body parts 
absorbed most of the crash energy. In either case, the side airbag would not have 
been needed nor provided protection even if it had deployed.

Operation

1

Side Airbags

Do not cover or replace the front seat-back covers 
without consulting a dealer.
Improperly replacing or covering front seat-back 
covers can prevent your side airbags from properly 
deploying during a side impact.

Do not let the front passenger lean sideways with 
their head in the deployment path of the side airbag. 
An inflating side airbag can strike with strong force 
and seriously injure the passenger.

Side Curtain Airbags

The side curtain airbags help to protect the heads of the driver and any passengers 
during a moderate-to-severe side impact.

The side curtain airbags are located in the 
ceiling above the side windows on both sides 
of the vehicle.

Side Curtain Airbags

The side curtain airbags are most effective when an 
occupant is wearing their seat belt properly and 
sitting upright, well back in their seat.

Do not attach any objects to the side windows or roof 
pillars as they can interfere with the proper operation 
of the side curtain airbags.

Airbag System Indicators

If a problem occurs in the airbag system, the SRS indicator will come on and a 
message appears on the driver information interface.

When the power mode is set to ON

The indicator comes on for a few seconds, 
then goes off. This tells you the system is 
working properly.

If the indicator comes on at any other time, or 
does not come on at all, have the system 
checked by a dealer as soon as possible. If you 
don't, your airbags and seat belt tensioners 
may not work properly when they are needed.

Airbag Care

You do not need to, and should not, perform any maintenance on or replace any 
airbag system components yourself. However, you should have your vehicle 
inspected by a dealer in the following situations:

When the airbags have deployed

If an airbag has inflated, the control unit and other related parts must be replaced. 
Similarly, once an automatic seat belt tensioner has been activated, it must be 
replaced.

When the vehicle has been in a moderate-to-severe collision

Even if the airbags did not inflate, have your dealer inspect the following: the seat 
belt tensioners for the front seats and rear seats, and each seat belt that was worn 
during the crash.

1

Airbag Care

The removal of airbag components from the vehicle is 
prohibited.

In case of malfunction, or shutdown, or after the 
airbag inflation/seat belt tensioner operation, ask a 
qualified personnel for handling.

We recommend against the use of salvaged airbag 
system components, including the airbag, tensioners, 
sensors, and control unit.

Pop-up Hood System

About the Pop-up Hood System

The pop-up hood system is designed to help to reduce the possible head injuries of 
a pedestrian if they experience a frontal impact with your vehicle.

Your vehicle strikes a pedestrian or other objects at moderate or higher speed.

When the pedestrian impact sensors detect a 
certain amount of impact, the pop-up hood 
system is activated and the rear of the bonnet 
will raise.

The raised bonnet can help to reduce 
pedestrian head injuries.

The power units are located in the vehicle 
front side of the hinges.

Child Safety

Protecting Child Passengers

Each year, many children are injured or killed in vehicle crashes because they are 
either unrestrained or not properly restrained. In fact, vehicle crashes are the 
number one cause of death of children aged 12 and under.

To reduce the number of child deaths and injuries, infants and children should be 
properly restrained when they ride in a vehicle.

the CHILD can occur.

3

WARNING

Children who are unrestrained or 
improperly restrained can be seriously 
injured or killed in a crash.

Any child too small for a seat belt should be 
properly restrained in an approved child 
restraint system. A larger child should be 
properly restrained with a seat belt, using a 
booster seat if necessary.

Safe Driving

Children should sit properly restrained in a 
rear seat. This is because:

An inflating front or side airbag can injure 
or kill a child sitting in the front seat.

A child in the front seat is more likely to 
interfere with the driver's ability to safely 
control the vehicle.

Statistics show that children of all sizes and 
ages are safer when they are properly 
restrained in a rear seat.

1

Protecting Child Passengers

In many countries, the law requires all children aged 12 
and under, and whose height are shorter than 150 cm 
(60 inches) be properly restrained in a rear seat.

In many countries, it is required to use an officially 
approved and suitable child restraint system for 
transporting a child on any passenger seat. Check 
your local legal requirement.

Child restraint systems must meet UN Regulation No. 44 
or No. 129 or the regulations of the subject countries.

Protecting Child Passengers

Safe Driving

Never hold a child on your lap because it is impossible to protect them in the 
event of a collision.

Never put a seat belt over yourself and a child. During a crash, the belt would 
likely press deep into the child and cause serious or fatal injuries.

Never let two children use the same seat belt. Both children could be very 
seriously injured in a crash.

Any child who is too small to wear a seat belt must be properly restrained in an 
approved child restraint system that is properly secured to the vehicle using the 
seat belt or the child restraint anchorage system.

Do not allow children to operate the doors, windows or seat adjustments.

Do not leave children in the vehicle unattended, especially in hot weather when 
the inside of the vehicle can get hot enough to kill them. They could also activate 
vehicle controls causing it to move unexpectedly.

Safety of Infants and Small Children

An infant must be properly restrained in a rear-facing, reclining child restraint system 
until the infant reaches the child restraint system manufacturer's weight or height 
limit for the seat, and the infant is at least one year old.

Positioning a rear-facing child restraint 
system

Child restraint system must be placed and 
secured in a rear seating position.

u

We recommend that you install the child 
restraint system directly behind the front 
passenger’s seat, move the seat as far 
forward as needed, and leave it 
unoccupied.

u

Make sure that there is no contact 
between the child restraint system and 
the seat in front of it.
If there is, you may wish to get a smaller 
rear-facing child restraint system.

When properly installed, a rear-facing child restraint system may prevent the driver 
or a front passenger from moving their seat all the way back, or from locking their 
seat-back in the desired position.

1

Protecting Infants

Many experts recommend use of a rear-facing child 
restraint system for a child up to two years old if the 
child’s height and weight are appropriate for a rear-
facing child restraint system.

Rear-facing child restraint systems should never be 
installed in a front-facing position.

Always refer to the child restraint system 
manufacturer’s instructions before installation.

If the passenger’s front airbag inflates, it can hit the 
rear-facing child restraint system with great force, 
which can dislodge or strike the system, and seriously 
injure the child.

If it is absolutely unavoidable to install a rear-facing 
child restraint system in the front passenger seat, 
manually turn off the passenger front airbag system.

If a child is at least one year old and has exceeded the weight and height limitations 
of a rear-facing child restraint system, the child should be properly restrained in a 
firmly secured front-facing child restraint system until they exceed the weight and 
height limitations for the front-facing child restraint system.

Front-facing child restraint system 
placement

We strongly recommend placing a front-
facing child restraint system in a rear seating 
position.

Placing a front-facing child restraint system in the front seat can be hazardous. A 
rear seat is the safest place for a child.

Protecting Smaller Children

Protecting Smaller Children

Educate yourself about the laws and regulations 
regarding child restraint system use where you are 
driving, and follow the child restraint system 
manufacturer's instructions.

WARNING

Placing a front-facing child restraint system 
in the front seat can result in serious injury 
or death if the front airbag inflates.

If you must place a front-facing child 
restraint system in front, move the vehicle 
seat as far back as possible, and properly 
restrain the child.

Safety of Infants and Small Children

Safe Driving

Some child restraint systems are lower anchorage compatible. Some have a rigid-
type connector while others have a flexible-type connector. Both are equally easy to 
use. Some existing and previously owned child restraint systems can only be installed 
using the seat belt. Whichever type you choose, follow the child restraint system 
manufacturer’s use and care instructions including recommended expiration dates 
as well as the instructions in this manual. Proper installation is key to maximising 
your child’s safety. 

The flexible type may not be available in your country.

In seating positions and vehicles not equipped with lower anchorages, install a child 
restraint system using the seat belt and a top tether for added security. This is 
because all child restraint systems must be secured with the seat belt when the 
lower anchorage system is not in use. In addition, the child restraint system 
manufacturer may advise that a seat belt be used to attach an ISOFIX restraint 
system once a child reaches a specified weight. Please read the child restraint system 
owner’s manual for proper installation instructions. 

Important consideration when selecting a child restraint system

Make sure the child restraint system meets the following three requirements:

The child restraint system is the correct type and size for the child.

The child restraint system is the correct type for the seating position.

The child restraint system is compliant with safety standards. We recommend a 
child restraint system compliant with UN Regulation No. 44 or No. 129, or the 
regulations of the subject countries. Look for the approval mark on the system 
and the manufacturer’s statement of compliance on the box.

Selecting a Child Restraint System

Selecting a Child Restraint System

Installation of a lower anchorage-compatible child 
restraint system is simple.

Lower anchorage-compatible child restraint systems 
have been developed to simplify the installation 
process and reduce the likelihood of injuries caused 
by incorrect installation.
