Note

If tyres of size 215/60 R17 C are

fitted, consult a workshop before

installing a roof rack.

Refer to "Loading information" below

for further information.

Loading information

● Heavy objects in the load

compartment should be evenly

distributed and placed as far

forward as possible. If objects

can be stacked, the heavier

objects should be placed at the

bottom.

● Secure objects with lashing

straps attached to lashing eyes

3

 79.

● Secure loose objects in load

compartment to prevent sliding.

● 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

instrument panel.

● The load must not obstruct the

operation of the pedals, parking

brake and gear selector, or

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

Storage

83

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. In addition, the

number plate is only

distinguishable and illuminated

correctly if the doors are closed.

9 Warning

Always make sure that the load in

the vehicle is securely stowed.

Otherwise objects can be thrown

around inside the vehicle and

cause personal injury or damage

to the load or car.

● The payload is the difference

between the permitted gross

vehicle weight (see identification

plate 3 208) and the EC kerb

weight.
To calculate the payload, enter

the data for your vehicle in the

Weights table at the front of this

manual.
The EC kerb weight includes

weights for the driver (68 kg),

luggage (7 kg) and all fluids (fuel

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.
Do not drive faster than

120 km/h.
The permissible roof load is

200 kg for H1 Roof height

variants and 150 kg for H2 Roof

height variants (excludes

Platform cab conversions). The

roof load is the combined weight

of the roof rack and the load.
