Seats

Front Seats

Adjust the driver’s seat as far back as possible 
while allowing you to maintain full control of 
the vehicle. You should be able to sit upright, 
well back in the seat and be able to 
adequately press the pedals without leaning 
forward, and grip the steering wheel 
comfortably. The passenger’s seat should be 
adjusted in a similar manner, so that it is as far 
back from the front airbag in the dashboard 
as possible.

1

Seats

In addition to the seat adjustment, you can adjust the 
steering wheel up and down, in and out. Allow at 
least 25 cm (10 inches) between the centre of the 
steering wheel and the chest.

Always make seat adjustments before driving.

3

WARNING

Sitting too close to a front airbag can result 
in serious injury or death if the front 
airbags inflate.

Always sit as far back from the front 
airbags as possible while maintaining 
control of the vehicle.

Move back to allow sufficient 
space.

Adjust the driver's seat-back to a comfortable, 
upright position, leaving ample space 
between your chest and the airbag cover in 
the centre of the steering wheel.

The front seat passenger should also adjust 
their seat-back to a comfortable, upright 
position.

Reclining a seat-back so that the shoulder part of the belt no longer rests against the 
occupant's chest reduces the protective capability of the belt. It also increases the 
chance of sliding under the belt in a crash and being seriously injured. The farther a 
seat-back is reclined, the greater the risk of injury.

Adjusting the Seat-Backs

1

Adjusting the Seat-Backs

Do not put a cushion, or other object, between the 
seat-back and your back.

Doing so may interfere with proper seat belt or airbag 
operation.

If you cannot get far enough away from the steering 
wheel and still reach the controls, we recommend 
that you investigate whether some type of adaptive 
equipment may help.

3

WARNING

Reclining the seat-back too far can result in 
serious injury or death in a crash.

Adjust the seat-back to an upright position, 
and sit well back in the seat.

Lower the rear seat head restraint to its 
lowest position.

2.

Pull the release lever and fold down the 
seat.

This feature alerts you to passengers or items possibly forgotten in the rear seat. It 
activates when the rear doors are opened, and will alert you by display and sound 
before exiting the vehicle.

Folding Down the Rear Seats

1

Folding Down the Rear Seats

The rear seat-backs can be folded down to 
accommodate bulkier items in the luggage area.

When returning the seat-back to its original position, 
push it firmly back. Also, make sure all rear shoulder 
belts are positioned in front of the seat-back.

Make sure all items in the luggage area or items 
extending through the opening into the rear 
seats are properly secured. Loose items can fly 
forward if you have to brake hard.

3

WARNING

Make sure the seat-backs are latched 
securely before driving.

Maintain a Proper Sitting Position

Maintain a Proper Sitting Position

After all occupants have adjusted their seats and head restraints, and put on their 
seat belts, it is very important that they continue to sit upright, well back in their 
seats, with their feet on the floor, until the vehicle is safely parked and the power 
mode is off.

Sitting improperly can increase the chance of injury during a crash. For example, if 
an occupant slouches, lies down, turns sideways, sits forward, leans forward or 
sideways, or puts one or both feet up, the chance of injury during a crash is greatly 
increased.

In addition, an occupant who is out of position in the front seat can be seriously or 
fatally injured in a crash by striking interior parts of the vehicle or being struck by an 
inflating front airbag.

Rear Seat Reminder

The system does not detect passengers in the rear 
seat(s).
Instead, it can detect when a rear door is opened and 
closed, indicating that there may be something in the 
rear seat(s).

You can turn off the notification setting.

Head Restraints

Head Restraints

Your vehicle is equipped with head restraints in all seating positions.

Head restraints are most effective for 
protection against whiplash and other rear-
impact crash injuries when the centre of the 
back of the occupant's head rests against the 
centre of the restraint. The tops of the 
occupant's ears should be level with the 
centre height of the restraint.

To raise the head restraint:

 Pull it upward.

To lower the head restraint:

 Push it down 

while pressing the release button.

Adjusting the Front Head Restraints

Adjusting the Front Head Restraints

In order for the head restraint system to work 
properly:

Do not hang any items on the head restraints, or 
from the restraint legs.

Do not place any objects between an occupant and 
the seat-back.

Install each restraint in its proper location.

3

WARNING

Improperly positioning head restraints 
reduces their effectiveness and increases 
the likelihood of serious injury in a crash.

Make sure head restraints are in place and 
positioned properly before driving.

Position head in the centre of the 
head restraint.
