Storage

Loading information

● Heavy objects in the load

compartment should be placed

against the seat backrests.

Ensure that the backrests are

securely engaged. 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.

● 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 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 vehicle.

● The payload is the difference

between the permitted gross

vehicle weight (see identification

plate 3 168) 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.
The permissible roof load for

vehicles with roof railing is 50 kg.

The roof load is the combined

weight of the roof rack and the

load.
