Child protection helps to prevent doors from being opened accidentally, especially when small children are in the rear seat.

A lever is provided on each rear door. If the lever is set to the locked position, the rear doors cannot be opened using the inside handle.

To open the rear door while the child protection is in use, pull the outside door handle. If the lever is set to the “Free” position, the child protection mechanism does not function.


When driving with a child in the rear seat, please use the child protection to prevent accidental door opening which may cause an accident.
