Safety

(a) Universal child seat: child seat that can be 

installed in all vehicles using the seat belt.

(b) Group 0: from birth to 10 kg. Carry-cots 

and car beds cannot be installed in the 
front passenger seat.

(c) Refer to the current legislation in your 

country before installing your child on this 
seat.

(d) When installing a child seat on a rear seat 

in a rearward or forward-facing position, 
move the front seat forward then adjust 
the backrest to an upright position to allow 
enough room for the child seat and the 
child's legs.

(e) When you install a "rearward facing" child 

seat in the 

front passenger seat, the 

passenger air bag must be deactivated. 
Otherwise, 

the child would risk being 

seriously injured or killed if the air 

bag were deployed. When a "forward 

facing" child seat is installed on the 

front 

passenger seat, the passenger's air bag 

must remain activated.

U: Seat suitable for the installation of a 

child seat secured using a seat belt and 
universally approved, rearward facing and/
or forward facing.

X: Seat not suitable for the installation of a 

child seat of the weight group indicated.

Remove and stow the head restraint 
before installing a child seat with backrest 
on a passenger seat. Refit the head 
restraint once the child seat has been 
removed.

Safety

Advice

The incorrect installation of a child seat in a 
vehicle compromises the child's protection in 
the event of an accident.
Ensure that there is no seat belt or seat belt 
buckle under the child seat, as this could 
destabilise it.
Remember to fasten the seat belts or the 
child seat harnesses keeping the slack 
relative to the child's body to a minimum, 
even for short journeys.
When installing a child seat using the seat 
belt, ensure that the seat belt is tightened 
correctly on the child seat and that it secures 
the child seat firmly on the seat of your 
vehicle. If your passenger seat is adjustable, 
move it forwards if necessary.
At rear seating positions, always leave 
sufficient space between the front seat and:
-  a rearward facing child seat,
-  the child's feet for a child seat fitted 

forward facing.

To do this, move the front seat forwards 
and, if necessary, move its backrest into the 
upright position.

For optimal installation of the forward-facing 
child seat, verify that its backrest is as close 
as possible to the backrest of the vehicle 
seat, or if possible in contact with it.
The head restraint must be removed before 
installing a child seat with a backrest on the 
passenger seat.
Ensure that the headrest is stowed or 
attached securely so that it is not thrown 
around the vehicle in the event of sharp 
braking. Refit the head restraint once the 
child seat has been removed.

Children in front

The legislation on carrying children on the 
front passenger seat is specific to each 
country. Consult the legislation in force in 
your country.
Deactivate the passenger's front airbag 
when a rearward facing child seat is installed 
on the front passenger seat.
Otherwise, the child risks being seriously 
injured or killed if the airbag is deployed.

Installing a booster seat

The chest part of the seat belt must be 
positioned on the child's shoulder without 
touching the neck.

Ensure that the lap part of the seat belt 
passes correctly over the child's thighs.

PEUGEOT recommends using a booster seat 
with a backrest equipped with a belt guide at 
shoulder level.
As a safety precaution, do not leave:
-  a child or children alone and 

unsupervised in a vehicle,

-  a child or an animal in a vehicle which 

is exposed to the sun, with the windows 
closed,

-  the keys within reach of children inside 

the vehicle.

To prevent accidental opening of the doors 
and rear windows, use the child lock.
Take care not to open the rear windows by 
more than one third.
To protect young children from the rays of 
the sun, fit side blinds on the rear windows.

Safety

"ISOFIX" mountings

Your vehicle has been approved in accordance 
with the 

latest ISOFIX regulation.

The seats, shown below, are fitted with 
regulation ISOFIX mountings:

There are three rings for each seat:

-  Two rings 

A, located between the vehicle 

seat back and cushion, indicated by a 
marking.

-  A ring 

B, located under a cover on the back 

of the top of the seat backrest, referred to 
as the 

TOP TETHER for fixing the upper 

strap. Its position is indicated by a marking.

The TOP TETHER is used to secure the upper 
strap of child seats that have them. This device 
limits forward tipping of the child seat, in the 
event of a front impact.

This ISOFIX mounting system provides fast, 
reliable and safe fitting of the child seat in your 
vehicle.
The 

ISOFIX child seats are fitted with two 

latches which are easily secured on the two 
rings 

A.

Some also have an 

upper strap which is 

attached to ring 

B.

To secure the child seat to the TOP TETHER :
-  Pass the child seat strap over the centre of 

the vehicle's seat backrest.

-  Lift the TOP TETHER cover.
-  Secure the upper strap fixing to the ring 

B.

-  Tighten the upper strap.

When installing an ISOFIX child seat on the 
right hand rear seat, before securing the seat, 
first move the centre rear seat belt towards the 
middle of the vehicle, so as to not interfere with 
the operation of the seat belt.

The incorrect installation of a child seat 
in a vehicle compromises the child's 
protection in case of accident.

Strictly observe the fitting instructions 
provided with the child seat.

For information on the possibilities for installing 
ISOFIX child seats in your vehicle, refer to the 
summary table.

Driving

Driving recommendations

Observe the driving regulations and remain 
vigilant whatever the traffic conditions.
Pay close attention to the traffic and keep your 
hands on the wheel so that you are ready to 
react at any time to any eventuality.
On a long journey, a break every two hours is 
strongly recommended.
In difficult weather, drive smoothly, anticipate 
the need to brake and increase the distance 
from other vehicles.

Driving on flooded roads

We strongly advise against driving on flooded 
roads, as this could cause serious damage 
to the engine or gearbox, as well as to the 
electrical systems of your vehicle.

Important!

Never drive with the parking brake  
applied - Risk of overheating and damage 
to the braking system!
Risk of fire!
As the exhaust system of your vehicle 
is very hot, even several minutes after 
switching off the engine, do not park or run 
the engine over areas where inflammable 
substances and materials are present: 
grass, leaves, etc.

Never leave a vehicle unsupervised with 
the engine running. If you have to leave 
your vehicle with the engine running, apply 
the parking brake and put the gearbox into 
neutral or position 

N or P, depending on 

the type of gearbox.

If you are obliged to drive through water:
-  check that the depth of water does not 

exceed 15 cm, taking account of waves 
that might be generated by other users,

-  deactivate the Stop & Start system,
-  drive as slowly as possible without stalling. 

Under no circumstances exceed 10 km/h,

-  do not stop and do not switch off the 

engine.

On leaving the flooded road, as soon as 
circumstances allow, make several light brake 
applications to dry the brake discs and pads.
If in doubt on the state of your vehicle, contact 
a PEUGEOT dealer or a qualified workshop.

102

Driving

Starting-switching off the engine

Anti-theft protection

Electronic engine immobiliser

The key contains an electronic chip which has 
a special code. When the ignition is switched 
on, this code must be recognised in order for 
starting to be possible.
This electronic engine immobiliser locks the 
engine management system a few minutes 
after the ignition is switched off, and prevents 
the engine being started by anyone who does 
not have the key.

 or 

In the event of a fault, you are 
informed by the illumination of this 
warning light, an audible signal and 
a message in the screen.

In this case, your vehicle will not start; contact 
a PEUGEOT dealer as soon as possible.

Keep safely, away from your vehicle, the 
label attached to the keys given to you on 
when you purchased your vehicle.

Key starter

It has 3 positions:
- position 

1 (Stop): insert and removing the 

key, steering column locked,

- position 

2 (Ignition on): steering column 

unlocked, ignition on, Diesel preheating, 
engine running,

- position 

3 (Starting).

Ignition on position

It allows the use of the vehicle's electric 
equipment or portable devices to be charged.
Once the state of charge of the battery drops 
to the reserve level, the system switches to 
energy economy mode : the power supply is 
cut off automatically to preserve the remaining 
battery charge.

Avoid attaching heavy objects to the key 
or the remote control, which would weigh 
down on its blade in the ignition switch 
and could cause a malfunction.
It could adversely affect the deployment of 
the front airbag.

3 without pressing the 

accelerator pedal, until the engine 

starts. Once the engine is running, 

release the key.

In winter conditions, the lighting time of 
the indicator light is longer. When the 
engine is warm, the indicator light does 
not come on.

If the engine does not start immediately, 
turn off the ignition. Wait a few minutes 
before restarting. If after a few attempts 
the engine does not start, do not persist: 
you risk damaging the starter and the 
engine. Contact a PEUGEOT dealer or a 
qualified workshop.

In temperate conditions, do not leave 
the engine at idle to warm up but move 
off straight away and drive at moderate 
speed.

Never leave the engine running in 
an enclosed area without adequate 
ventilation: internal combustion engines 
emit toxic exhaust gases, such as carbon 
monoxide. There is a risk of poisoning and 
death!
In severe wintry conditions (temperature 
below -23°C), the engine should be left at 
idle for four minutes before moving off to 
ensure the correct operation and life of the 
mechanical parts of your vehicle, engine 
and gearbox.
