Correct seating position for the front passenger

Read and observe   on page 10 first.

For passenger safety and to reduce the risk of injury in an accident, the follow-

ing instructions must be observed.

Position the front passenger seat back as far as possible. The front pas-

senger must maintain a distance of at least 25 cm to the dash panel so

that the airbag offers the greatest possible safety if it is deployed.
Correctly fasten the seat belt 

» page 13

.

WARNING

A distance of least 25 cm to the dash panel should be maintained, other-

wise the airbag system will not be able to protect you - hazard!

Always keep your feet in the footwell when the car is being driven – nev-

er place your feet on the instrument panel, out of the window or on the

surface of the seats! You will be exposed to increased risk of injury if it be-

comes necessary to apply the brake or in the event of an accident. If an air-

bag is deployed, you could suffer fatal injuries by adopting an incorrect

seated position!

Correct seating position for the passengers in the rear seats

Read and observe   on page 10 first.

For the safety of the passengers in the rear seats, and to reduce the risk of in-

jury in an accident, the following instructions must be observed.

Adjust the head restraint so that the top edge of the head restraint is at

the same level as the upper part of your head.
Correctly fasten the seat belt

Seat belts

Using seat belts

Introduction

Seat belts that are fastened correctly offer good protection in the event of an

accident. They reduce the risk of an injury and increase the chance of survival

in the event of a major accident.
The seat belts reduce the kinetic energy (energy of motion) to a considerable

extent. They also prevent uncontrolled movements which, in turn, may well re-

sult in severe injuries.
When transporting a child the following instructions must be observed

» page 17

Transporting children safely.

WARNING

Fasten seat belts before every ride! This also applies to other passengers -

there is a danger of injury!

Maximum seat belt protection is only achieved if you are correctly seated

» page 9

Correct and safe seat position.

The seat backrests of the front seats must not be tilted too far to the rear

otherwise the seatbelts can lose their effectiveness.

WARNING

Information on dealing with the safety belts

The belt webbing must not be jammed in-between at any point or twis-

ted, or chafe against any sharp edges.

Make sure you do not catch the seat belt when closing the door.

WARNING

Information on the proper use of the safety belts

No two persons (also not children) should ever use a single seat belt to-

gether.

The lock tongue should only be inserted into the lock which is the correct

one for your seat. Wrong use of the safety belt will reduce its capacity to

protect and the risk of injury increases.

11

Seat belts

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

WARNING (Continued)

Many layers of clothing and loose clothing (e. g. a winter coat over a jack-

et) do not allow you to be correctly seated and impairs proper operation of

the seat belts.

Do not attach clamps or similar objects to the belt - the function of the

belt retractor could be restricted.

The seat belts for the rear seats can only fulfil their function reliably when

the seat backrests are correctly locked into position 

» page 51

.

WARNING

Information on the care and maintenance of the safety belts

The belt webbing must always be kept clean. Soiled belt webbing may im-

pair proper operation of the inertia reel 

» page 107

.

The seat belts must not be removed or changed in any way. Do not at-

tempt to repair the seat belts yourself.

Check the condition of all the seat belts on a regular basis. If damage to

the parts of the seat belt system (e.g. the strap, the belt connectors, the re-

tractor, the lock or similar) are detected, the seat belt in question must be

replaced immediately by a specialist.

Seat belts which have been subjected to stress in an accident should be

replaced by a specialist garage. Also check the seat belt anchors.

Correct routing of seat belt

Fig. 6  Routing of belt webbing over the shoulders and the lap belt /

Routing of belt webbing for an expectant mother

Read and observe   on page 11 first.

It is important that the belt is properly routed to ensure seat belts offer the

maximum protection.
The shoulder belt should be positioned approximately over the middle of your

shoulder (on no account across your neck) and lie flush to the chest 

» Fig. 6

 -

.

The lower part of the belt should run across the pelvis (it should not lie on top

of the stomach) and must always fit snugly 

» Fig. 6

 - .

For pregnant women, the lower part of the belt must be positioned as low

down as possible across the pelvis, to avoid exerting any pressure on the lower

abdomen 

» Fig. 6

 - .

WARNING

Always ensure that the webbing of the seat belts is properly routed. Seat

belts which are not correctly adjusted can themselves cause injuries even in

minor accidents.

A seat belt which is hanging too loose can result in injuries as your body is

moved forward by the kinetic energy produced in an accident and is then

suddenly held firm by the belt.

The belt webbing must not run across solid or fragile objects (e.g. pencils,

spectacles, pens, keys etc.). Such objects can cause injury.

Safety

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Fastening and unfastening seat belts

Fig. 7  Fastening / unfastening the seat belt

Read and observe   on page 11 first.

Before fastening the belt

Adjust the head restraint properly (does not apply to seats with integrated

head restraints).

Adjust the seat (applies to the front seats).

Fastening

Slowly pull the belt over the chest and pelvis.

Insert the lock tongue into the belt buckle 

» Fig. 7

 –  that is part of the seat

until it clicks into place.

Pull on the belt to check that it has engaged correctly in the lock.

Releasing

Grip the lock tongue and press the red button in the buckle 

» Fig. 7

 - , the

lock tongue pops out.

Guide the belt back by hand so that the seat belt does not twist and the

webbing rolls up fully.

WARNING

The reel opening for the lock tongue must not be blocked otherwise the

lock tongue will not lock into place properly.

Inertia reels and belt tensioners

Inertia reels

Each seat belt is equipped with an inertia reel.
When pulling slowly on the seat belt, the belt can move freely. When pulling

sharply on the seat belt, the movement is locked by the inertia reel. The belts

also lock when full braking, when the car accelerates, when driving downhill

and when cornering.

WARNING

If the seat belt does not lock when pulling sharply on it, have it inspected

immediately by a specialist garage.

Belt tensioners

Safety for the driver and front passenger wearing their seat belts is enhanced

by the belt tensioners fitted to the inertia reels of the front three-point seat

belts.
If there is a collision of a certain severity, the seat belts are tightened by the

belt tensioner so that unwanted body motion is prevented.
Belt tensioners are not activated in the event of a roll-over, minor collisions or

in accidents in which no major forces are produced.

WARNING

Any work on the belt tensioner system, including the removal and installa-

tion of system components because of other repair work, must only be car-

ried out by a specialist garage.

If the belt tensioners have been deployed, it is then necessary to replace

the entire system.

Note

The belt tensioners can also be deployed if the seat belts are not fastened.

Smoke is generated when the belt tensioners are deployed. This is not an in-

dication of a fire in the vehicle.

Airbag system

Description of the airbag system

Introduction

The airbag system provides, as a supplement to the seat belts, additional occu-

pant protection during severe frontal and side-on collisions.
The airbag will only provide optimum protection in conjunction with wear-

ing the seat belt - the airbag is not a substitute for the seat belts.
The status of the airbag system is indicated by the warning light 

 in the in-

strument cluster 

» page 30

.

System description

Installation locations of airbags 

» Fig. 8

Front airbags
Front side airbags Head-Thorax

Front airbags - the forward thrust of the driver and of the front passenger is

cushioned when they make contact with the fully-inflated airbag, and the risk

of injury to head and chest is thus reduced.
The front airbags can be identified by the lettering  featured on the steer-

ing wheel and on the dash panel on the passenger side.

A
B

Side airbags Head-Thorax - The stress on occupants’ bodies is cushioned

when they make contact with the fully-inflated airbag and the risk of injury to

head and the entire upper body (chest, stomach and pelvis) is reduced on the

side facing the door.
The side air bags can be identified by a label with the lettering  marked on

the front seat backrests.

Depending on the vehicle equipment, the airbag system consists of the

following parts.

Individual airbags.

Airbag deployment

Fig. 9  Inflated airbags

The airbag system is only functional when the ignition is switched on.
When triggered, the airbag fills with gas and unfolds. The inflation of the air-

bag is carried out in a fraction of a second.
When the airbag inflates, smoke is released. This is not a sign of a fire in the

vehicle.

14

Safety

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Triggering conditions

It is not possible to generally determine which deployment conditions apply to

the airbag system in every situation. The important factors here are the hard-

ness of the object with which the vehicle collides, the angle of impact, vehicle

speed etc.
The deceleration during impact plays an important role in the deployment of

the airbags. If the vehicle deceleration which occurs and is measured remains

below the prescribed reference values specified in the control unit, the airbags

are not deployed although the vehicle may well suffer severe damage to the

bodywork as a consequence of the accident.

The following airbags will be deployed in the event of a severe frontal

collision.

Driver’s front airbag.

Front passenger airbag.

The following airbags will be deployed in the event of a severe side

collision.

Head-Thorax side airbag on the crash side.

When an airbag is deployed, the following events occur.

The hazard warning lights are switched on.

All doors are unlocked.

The fuel supply to the engine is interrupted.

The interior light comes on (if the automatic operation of the interior light is

switched on - position ).

When there is no air bag deployment?

With minor frontal and side collisions, rear collision, overturning of the vehicle

or vehicle roll-over there is no airbag deployment.

Safety instructions

Fig. 10 

Safe distance from the steering

wheel and dash panel

WARNING

General information

The seat belts and the airbag system can only offer proper protection

if the driver and passengers are seated properly 

» page 9

.

The airbag unleashes enormous force when triggered, which can lead to

serious injuries or fatalities if the driver and passengers are not seated

properly. This applies in particular to children who are transported without

using a suitable child safety seat 

» page 19

.

If there is a fault, have the airbag system checked immediately by a spe-

cialist garage. Otherwise, there is a risk that the airbag will not be deployed

in the event of an accident.

If the airbag has been deployed, the airbag system must then be replaced.

The surface of the steering wheel and the dash panel should only be

cleaned with a dry or slightly dampened cloth in the area of the front air-

bags.

WARNING

Information about the front airbags

It is important for the driver and front passenger to maintain a minimum

distance of 25 cm from the steering wheel or the control panel 

» Fig. 10

 -

A

, If you do not observe this distance, the airbag cannot protect you - risk

to life! The front seats must always be set correctly according to the body

size.

The front passenger airbag must be deactivated if using a rear-facing

child seat on the front passenger seat 

» page 16

Airbag deactivation. If

this is not done, there is a risk of the child suffering severe or even fatal in-

juries if the front passenger airbag is deployed.

No other persons, animals or objects should be placed in front of the oc-

cupants in the front seats in the deployment area of the front airbags.

The steering wheel and the surface of the dash panel on the passenger

side must not be stickered, covered or modified in any way. No parts (e.g.

cup holders, mobile phone mounts and the like) may be mounted near the

airbag installation points and in the airbag deployment area.

Never place objects on the surface of the dash panel on the passenger

side.

15

Airbag system

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

WARNING

Information about the side airbags

No objects (e.g. sun visors pivoted towards the windows) should be

placed in the deployment area of the side airbag, and no accessories (e.g.

cup holders and the like) should be mounted on the doors - danger of in-

jury!

Hang only light clothing on the hooks in the vehicle, do not leave any

heavy or sharp objects in the pockets. Do not use hangers to hang up the

clothes.

The airbag system operates using pressure sensors located in the front

doors. For this reason, no adjustments may be carried out to the doors or

door panels (e.g. installation of additional loudspeakers). Further informa-

tion 

» page 104

.

No excessive force, e.g. through blows, kicks etc. should be applied to the

seat backrests - there is a risk of damage to the side airbags. The side air-

bags would not be deployed in such a case!

Any seat or protective covers which you fit to the driver or front passen-

ger seats must only be of a type expressly authorised by ŠKODA AUTO. In

view of the fact that the airbag inflates out of the backrest of the seat, use

of non-approved seat or protective covers would considerably impair the

protective function of the side airbag.

Any damage to the original seat covers or stitching at the installation

points for the side airbags should be immediately repaired by a specialist

company.

WARNING

Information on the use of the airbag system

Any work on the airbag system, including the installation and removal of

system components due to other repair work (e.g. removal of the steering

wheel), must only be carried out by a specialist garage. Further information

» page 104

.

No changes of any sort should be made to parts of the airbag system, the

front bumper or the bodywork.

Do not manipulate individual parts of the airbag system, as this might re-

sult in the airbag being deployed.

Airbag deactivation

Deactivating airbags

The front passenger airbag can be switched off with the key-operated switch

» Fig. 11

 on page 16 - .

We recommend that you ask a ŠKODA service partner to deactivate any other

airbags.
A warning light indicates that the airbag has been 

 deactivated 

» page 30

.

Deactivating an airbag should be considered in cases such as the ones

below.

A child seat is mounted on the front passenger seat, in which the child is

transported with its back to the direction of travel 

» page 17

.

Despite correct adjustment of the driver's seat, the distance of at least

25 cm between the middle of the steering wheel and chest cannot be main-

tained;

Additional controls for drivers with a physical disability are installed in the ve-

hicle.

Special seats (e.g. orthopaedic seats without side airbags) are installed in the

vehicle.

WARNING

If an airbag is deactivated at the time of the vehicle being sold, the purchas-

er must be informed!

Transporting children safely

Child seat

Introduction

To reduce the risk of injury in an accident, children should only be transported

in child seats!

Please refer to the instructions in this Owner's Instruction and the child seat man-

ufacturer's instructions with regard to the installation and use of the child seat.
For safety reasons, we recommend that you always transport children on the

rear seats. Only transport a child on the passenger seat in exceptional circum-

stances.
Child seats complying with the ECE-R 44 Economic Commission for Europe

standard must be used.
Child seats that comply with the ECE-R 44 standard are identified with a test

mark that cannot be removed: a large E within a circle with the test number

below.

WARNING

One should never carry children, and also not babies! - on one's lap.

When leaving the vehicle, do not leave children unattended in the vehicle.

Children might not be capable of leaving the vehicle or helping themselves

independently in the event of an emergency. Danger to life at very high or

very low temperatures!

The child must be secured in the vehicle during the entire journey! Other-

wise, the child would be thrown through the vehicle in the event of an acci-

dent, causing fatal injuries to both the child and other occupants.

Children are exposed to an increased risk of injury in the event of an acci-

dent if they lean forward or adopt an incorrect seated position when the

vehicle is moving. This particularly applies to children who are transported

on the front passenger seat as they can suffer severe, or even fatal injuries

if the airbag system is deployed!

Pay particular attention to the information provided by the manufacturer

of the child safety seat regarding the correct routing of the belt. Seat belts

which are not correctly adjusted can themselves cause injuries even in mi-

nor accidents.

17

Transporting children safely

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

WARNING (Continued)

Safety belts must be checked to ensure that they are running properly.

One should also ensure that the belt is not damaged by sharp-edged fit-

tings.

When installing the child seat on the back seat, the corresponding front

seat must be adjusted so that there is no contact between the front seat

and the child seat or the child being transported in a child seat.

CAUTION

When installing a child seat in which the child faces forward, adjust the head

restraints so that they are as high as possible (valid for the rear seats).

If the head restraints still prevent the child seat from being installed, even in

the highest position, you will need to remove them (valid for the rear seats)

» page 52

. After removing the child seat, refit the head restraints.

Note

We recommend that you use child seats from ŠKODA Original Accessories.

These child seats were developed and also tested for use in ŠKODA vehicles.

They meet the ECE-R 44 standard.

Use of a child seat on the front passenger seat

Does not apply to Taiwan

Fig. 12  Warning labels

Read and observe   and   on page 17 first.

Never use a rear-facing child restraint system on a seat which is protected

by an active airbag positioned in front of it. This could cause serious injury

to the child, even death.
This warning is also given on stickers that are located in the following places.

On the passenger sun visor 

» Fig. 12

 - .

On the B-column on the front passenger side 

» Fig. 12

 – .

The following instructions must be followed when using a child seat on the

front passenger seat.

It is essential to deactivate the front passenger airbag if using a child seat in

which the child is transported with its back facing the direction of travel 

» 

.

If possible, adjust the front passenger seat backrest so that it is as vertical, so

as to ensure secure contact between the passenger seat backrest and the

back of the child seat.

If possible, move the front passenger seat backwards so that there is no con-

tact between the front passenger seat and the child seat behind it.

Set the height-adjustable front passenger seat as high up as possible.

With child safety seats in groups 2 and 3, make sure that the loop-around fit-

tings attached to the child seat headrest is positioned in front of or at the

same height as the loop-around fittings on the B pillar on the passenger side.

WARNING

Never use a rear-facing child seat on the front passenger seat if the pas-

senger airbag is activated. This child safety seat is positioned in the deploy-

ment area of the front passenger airbag. The airbag may cause the child se-

vere, or even fatal injuries, in the event of it being deployed.

Once a child seat in which the child is transported with its back to the di-

rection of travel is no longer being used on the passenger seat, the front

passenger airbag should be reactivated.
