Possible alternatives for securing a childsafety seat
A child safety seat can be secured on the rear seats and on the front passenger's seat.
The following alternatives are available for safely securing a child safety seat on the rear seats and on the front passenger's seat.
• Child safety seats of the categories 0 to 3 can be secured with the standard
three-point seat belts.
• Child safety seats of the categories 0, 0+ and 1 with the “ISOFIX” system can be secured without seat belts using the “ISOFIX” retainers.
Compatibility of vehicle seat positions for child safety seats (according to EC directive 77/541):
u “universally compatible”
a The front passenger's backrest must be set as far forward as possible or adapted to the child safety seat as required, and the seat height must be adjusted to its highest position.
b The front passenger's airbag must be deactivated if a rearwardfacing child seat is used.
c The front passenger's seat can be equipped with optional “ISOFIX” retainers.
d The rear seats can be equipped with optional “ISOFIX” retainers.
While the vehicle is moving, children must always be protected with a restraint
system which is suited to their age, height and weight. Please refer to the chapter
“Child seat categories”.
• Never install a rearward-facing child safety seat on the front passenger's seat unless the front passenger's airbag has been deactivated. This could result in potentially fatal injuries. If you have no alternative but to let a child travel on the front passenger's seat, the front passenger's airbag must be deactivated beforehand.
Please refer to the chapter “Deactivating airbags”.
• Note the important information and warnings concerning the use of child safety seats found in the chapter “Important safety notes when using child safety seats” and in the installation instructions provided by the manufacturer of the child safety seat.
