approved roof rack system is

recommended. For further

information contact your workshop.

Mounting roof rack

Mounting points are located in each

door frame of the vehicle body.

9 Warning

Sports Tourer
Roof railings are a styling element

only and not designed to carry any

load. Installation of roof racks or

other accessory is not permitted.

Use the designated mounting

points in the door frames

exclusively.

Loading information

● Heavy objects in the load

compartment should be placed

against the seat backrests. Make

sure that the backrests are

securely engaged, i.e. no longer

showing the red markings on the

side near the release lever. If

objects can be stacked, heavier

objects should be placed at the

bottom.

● Prevent sliding of loose objects

by securing them with straps

attached to the lashing eyes

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

90

Storage

● Do not allow the load to protrude

above the upper edge of the

backrests.

● Sports Tourer: install safety net

when transporting objects in the

load compartment.

● 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 lever, 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.

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 3 282) 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

75 kg. The roof load is the

combined weight of the roof rack

and the load.
