Loading information

■ Heavy objects in the load

compartment should be placed

against the seat backrests. Ensure

the backrests are securely

engaged. If objects can be stacked,

the heavier objects should be

placed at the bottom.

■ Secure objects with lashing straps

attached to lashing eyes.

■ Secure loose objects in load

compartment to prevent sliding.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Storage

49

■ When transporting objects in the

load compartment, the backrests of

the rear seats must not be angled

forward.

■ Do not allow the load to protrude

above the upper edge of the

backrests.

■ Do not place any objects on the

load compartment cover or the

instrument panel, and do not cover

the sensor on top of the instrument

panel.

■ The load must not obstruct the

operation of the pedals, parking

brake and gear selector, or hinder

the freedom of movement of the

driver. Do not place any unsecured

objects in the interior.

■ Do not drive with an open load

compartment.

■ The payload is the difference

between the permitted gross

vehicle weight (see identification

plate 3 124) and the EC kerb

weight.
To calculate the EC kerb weight,

enter the data for your vehicle in the

Weights table in the Introduction

section.
The EC kerb weight includes

weights for the driver (68 kg),

luggage (7 kg) and all fluids (tank

90% full).
Optional equipment and

accessories increase the kerb

weight.

■ Driving with a roof load increases

the sensitivity of the vehicle to

cross-winds and has a detrimental

effect on vehicle handling due to

the vehicle’s higher centre of

gravity. Distribute the load evenly

and secure it properly with retaining

straps. Adjust the tyre pressure and

vehicle speed according to the load

conditions. Check and retighten the

straps frequently.
The permissible roof load is 35 kg.

The roof load is the combined

weight of the roof rack and the load.
