• Keep floor mats clear of the pedals by correctly laying floor mats that are suitable for the vehicle.

Carrying children in the vehicle

Carrying children in the vehicle

• Never leave your vehicle unattended with the key and children inside the vehicle. Children may play with the driving controls and this could lead to an accident.

• Make sure that infants and small children are properly restrained in accordance with the laws and regulations, and for maximum protection in case of an accident.

• Prevent children from playing in the luggage compartment. It is quite dangerous to allow them to play there while the vehicle is moving.

Loading luggage

When loading luggage, be careful not to load above the height of seats. This is dangerous not only because rearward vision will be obstructed, but also the luggage may be projected into the passenger compartment under hard braking.
