Front luggage compartment

Trunk Entrapment
Your vehicle is equipped with an internal front/rear trunk release mechanism.

A person trapped in the luggage compartment can release the lid from the inside using the unlocking handle.

The handle is fluorescent and glows in the dark.

Information
When loading the luggage compartment, make sure that items of luggage or other objects cannot become caught on the handle.

This could cause the luggage compartment to open unintentionally.



Rear luggage compartment

Warning message

A warning message in the on-board computer lights up when unlocking handle A is operated.

  • Stop the vehicle immediately when the warning message lights up.
  • Check the luggage compartments.
  • Close the lid.
