Front Seats
Seat position
A correct sitting position is important for safe and fatigue-free driving. We recommend the following procedure for adjusting the driver’s seat to suit individual requirements:

  1. Adjust the seat height to give yourself enough headroom and a good overview of the vehicle.
  2. Adjust the seat in fore-and-aft direction so that your leg is not fully straight and your entire foot is on the pedal when pressing the brake pedal fully.
  3. Grip the top half of the steering wheel. Set the backrest angle and the steering wheel position so that your arms are almost outstretched. However, your shoulders must still rest on the backrest.
  4. Adjust the seat fore-and-aft setting if necessary.
  5. Adjust the height of the headrest so that the upper edge is at eye level or higher.

Adjusting the seat

Adjusting the seat when driving
The seat may move further than desired if you attempt to adjust it whilst driving. You may lose control of the vehicle.

  • Do not adjust the seat whilst driving.

Seat adjustment
If persons or animals are in the movement range of the seat during seat adjustment, there is a risk of parts of the body being pinched or crushed.

  • Adjust the seat so that no-one is put at risk.

The adjustment range of the passenger seat backrest is restricted if the country-specific equipment ISOFIX anchorage system for child restraint systems is used on the passenger seat. The passenger seat backrest can no longer be adjusted to the reclining position.
