Installing Child Seats

WARNINGS

Use an approved child seat to secure children less than 59 inches (150 centimeters) tall in the rear seat.

Extreme Hazard! Do not use a rearward facing child seat on a seat protected by an air bag in front of it!

Read and follow the manufacturer's instructions when you are installing a child seat.

  • Do not modify child seats in any way.
  • Do not hold a child on your lap when your vehicle is moving.
  • Do not leave unattended children in your vehicle.
  • If your vehicle has been involved in a crash, have the child seats checked by an authorized dealer.

Note: Mandatory use of child seats varies from country to country.

Only child seats certified to ECE-R44.03 (or later) have been tested and approved for use in your vehicle. A choice of these are available from an authorized dealer.

Child Seats for Different Mass Groups

Use the correct child seat as follows:

Baby Safety Seat

Baby Safety Seat

Secure children that weigh less than 29 pounds (13 kilograms) in a rearward facing baby safety seat (Group 0+) on the rear seat.

Child Safety Seat

Child Safety Seat

Secure children that weigh between 29 and 40 pounds (13 and 18 kilograms) in a child safety seat (Group 1) on the rear seat.

Booster Seats

WARNINGS

  • Do not install a booster seat or a booster cushion with only the lap strap of the safety belt.
  • Do not install a booster seat or a booster cushion with a safety belt that is slack or twisted.
  • Do not put the safety belt under your child's arm or behind their back.
  • Do not use pillows, books or towels to boost your child's height.
  • Make sure that your children sit in an upright position.

Note:When using a child seat on a rear seat, make sure that the child seat rests tightly against the vehicle seat. It may be necessary to lift or remove the head restraint. See Head Restraints

Booster Seat (Group 2)

Booster Seat (Group 2)

Secure children that weigh more than 33 pounds (15 kilograms) but are less than 59 inches (150 centimeters) tall in a booster seat or a booster cushion.

We recommend that you use a booster seat that combines a cushion with a backrest instead of a booster cushion only.

The raised seating position will allow you to position the shoulder strap of the adult safety belt over the center of your child's shoulder and the lap strap tightly across their hips.

ISOFIX Anchor Points

WARNING

Use an anti-rotation device when using the ISOFIX system. We recommend the use of a top tether or support leg.

Note:When you are purchasing an ISOFIX seat, make sure that you know the correct mass group and ISOFIX size class for the intended seating locations. See Child Seat Positioning

Your vehicle has ISOFIX anchor points that accommodate universally approved ISOFIX child seats.

The ISOFIX system comprises two rigid attachment arms on the child seat that attach to anchor points on the outboard rear seats, where the cushion and backrest meet. Tether anchor points are located behind the outboard rear seats for child seats with a top tether.
