Super UV Cut/IR Cut Glass

The front side windows are laminated with UV-cut and IR-cut film. When cleaning 
the interior side of the windows, make sure to use a soft damp cloth.

The front floor mat hooks over the floor anchors, which keep the mat from sliding 
forward. When reinstalling the mat after cleaning, position it properly.

Do not put additional floor mats on top of the anchored mat.

Cleaning the Window

Wires are mounted to the inside of the rear window. 
Wipe along the same direction as the wires with a 
soft cloth so as not to damage them.

Be careful not to spill fluids, such as water or glass 
cleaner, on or around the cover of both the front 
sensor camera and the rainfall/light sensor

Super UV Cut/IR Cut Glass

To ensure the longevity of the UV-cut and IR-cut film, 
avoid:

Opening and closing the windows when they are 
covered with dirt and other debris.

Using a glass cleaner containing polishing 
compounds, wax, or detergents.

Floor Mats

*

If you use any floor mats that were not originally 
provided with your vehicle, make sure they are 
designed for your specific vehicle, fit correctly, and 
are securely anchored by the floor anchors.
Position the rear seat floor mats properly. If they are 
not properly positioned, the floor mats can interfere 
with the front seat functions.

To properly clean leather:

1.

Use a vacuum or soft dry cloth first to remove any dirt or dust.

2.

Clean the leather with a soft cloth dampened with a solution comprised of 90% 
water and 10% neutral soap.

3.

Wipe away any soap residue with a clean damp cloth.

4.

Wipe away residual water and allow leather to air dry in the shade.

Maintaining Genuine Leather

Maintaining Genuine Leather

It is important to clean or wipe away dirt or dust as 
soon as possible. Spills can soak into leather resulting 
in stains. Dirt or dust can cause abrasions in the 
leather. In addition, please note that some dark 
coloured clothing can rub onto the leather seats 
resulting in discolouration or stains.

Exterior Care

Dust off the vehicle body after you drive. Regularly inspect your vehicle for scratches 
on painted surfaces. A scratch on a painted surface can result in body rust. If you 
find a scratch, promptly repair it.

Wash the vehicle regularly. Wash more frequently when driving in the following 
conditions:

If driving on roads with road salt.

If driving in coastal areas.

If tar, soot, bird droppings, insects, or tree sap are stuck to painted surfaces.

Make sure to follow the instructions indicated on the automated car wash.

Turn off the automatic intermittent wipers.

Do not spray water into the air intake vents. It can 
cause a malfunction.

If you need to lift the wiper arms away from the

Keep sufficient distance between the cleaning nozzle and the vehicle body.

Take particular care around the windows. Standing too close may cause water to 
enter the vehicle interior.

Do not spray water under the bonnet where the high voltage system components 
are located. It could cause a malfunction.

Do not spray water directly at the charging port.

A good coat of automotive body wax helps to protect your vehicle’s paint from the 
elements. Wax will wear off over time and expose your vehicle’s paint to the 
elements, so reapply as necessary.

If you get coolant or battery fluid on resin coated parts, they may be stained or the 
coating may peel. Promptly wipe it away using a soft cloth and clean water.

Wipe using a glass cleaner.

Aluminium is susceptible to deterioration caused by salt and other road 
contaminants. When necessary, as early as possible use a sponge and mild detergent 
to wipe away these contaminants. Do not use a stiff brush or harsh chemicals 
(including some commercial wheel cleaners). These can damage the protective finish 
on aluminium alloy wheels, resulting in corrosion. Depending on the type of finish, 
the wheels also may lose their lustre or appear burnished. To avoid water stains, 
wipe the wheels dry with a cloth while they are still wet. 

The inside lenses of exterior lights (headlights, brake lights, etc.) may fog temporarily 
if you have driven in the rain, or after the vehicle has been run through a car wash. 
Dew condensation also may build up inside the lenses when there is a significant 
enough difference between the ambient and inside lens temperatures (similar to 
vehicle windows fogging up in rainy conditions). These conditions are natural 
processes, not structural design problems in the exterior lights.
Lens design characteristics may result in moisture developing on the light lens frame 
surfaces. This also is not a malfunction.
However, if you see large amounts of water accumulation, or large water drops 
building up inside the lenses, have your vehicle inspected by a dealer.

Accessories and Modifications

Accessories

When installing accessories, check the following:

Do not install accessories on the windscreen. They can obstruct your view and 
delay your reaction to driving conditions.

Do not install any accessories over areas marked SRS Airbag, on the sides or backs 
of the front seats, on front or side pillars, or near the side windows.
Accessories installed in these areas may interfere with proper operation of the 
vehicle’s airbags or may be propelled into you or another occupant if the airbags 
deploy.

Be sure electronic accessories do not overload electrical circuits or interfere with 
proper operation of your vehicle.
