Passenger compartment features

Introduction

WARNING

Do not place anything on the dashboard. These objects might slide or fall

down when driving and may distract you from concentrating on the traffic

– risk of accident!

Make sure that while driving no objects can enter the driver's footwell -

cause an accident!

Do not carry any objects on the front passenger seat except objects de-

signed for this purpose (e.g. child seats) – risk of accident!

No objects should be placed in the storage compartments nor in the

drinks holders; the vehicle occupants could be endangered if there is sud-

den braking or the vehicle collides with something.

For safety reasons, lockable storage compartments must be closed while

driving - there is a risk of injury from the opened cover or from the items in

the compartment.

Make sure that no objects protrude from the compartments - there is

danger of injury!

Do not exceed the permissible load for the storage compartments and

pockets - it may cause injury or there is the risk of damaging the compart-

ments and pockets!

Ash, cigarettes, cigars and the like may only be placed in the ashtray - risk

of fire!

The storage compartments and the waste containers are not a substitute

for the ashtray and must also not be used for such purposes – risk of fire!

CAUTION

No not place large or sharp objects in the storage compartments and pockets

- there is a risk of damage to the compartments and pockets.

Operation

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

Telephones that support the standard for wireless Qi charging can be charged

wirelessly in the storage compartment.
While wireless charging is taking place, no objects may be between the pad

and the telephone being charged.

WARNING

The telephone may become warm during wireless charging, so this should

be removed carefully from the tray.

Metal objects between the pad and the telephone to be charged can get

hot due to the action of the induction field - There is a risk of injury. If there

is a metal object in the storage compartment that has become hot, then

take out the telephone and let the object cook in the storage compart-

ment!

CAUTION

Metal objects between the pad and the telephone to be charged can get hot

due to the action of the induction field - There is a risk damage to the tele-

phone.

With some telephones, the charging process may be interrupted or the tele-

phone may switch off due to getting hot.

No electronic or magnetic storage media (e.g. SD cards, USB sticks, cards

with magnetic strips or chip) may be placed between the support and tele-

phone to be charged - there is a risk of data loss and damage to this data carri-

er.

If a message appears in Infotainment that the telephone can not be charged,

then proceed as follows.

Check that no objects are between the pad and the telephone being charg-

ed. If this is the case, then take out the object and the telephone. Place the

telephone on the pad centrally on the telephone symbol.

Check if the position of the telephone to be charged has not changed dur-

ing the journey. If this is the case, then take out the telephone and place it

back on the pad centrally on the telephone symbol.

Note

At the start of the wireless charging process, the appropriate message ap-

pears on the Infotainment screen.

For the optimum telephone signal strength and uninterrupted wireless

charging, we recommend position the telephone in the storage compartment

without the protective sleeve, if possible.

Place a max. 160x80 mm phone in the storage compartment.

Electrical sockets

Introduction

WARNING

Do not place anything on the dashboard. These objects might slide or fall

down when driving and may distract you from concentrating on the traffic

– risk of accident!

Make sure that while driving no objects can enter the driver's footwell -

cause an accident!

Safely stow all devices during the journey to prevent them from being

thrown around the interior in the event of a sudden braking manoeuvre or

an accident – risk of death!

The devices may warm up during operation – risk of injury or fire!

Improper use of the power sockets and the electrical accessories can

cause fires, burns and other serious injuries.

The 12-Volt sockets also work if the ignition is switched off. When leaving

the vehicle, never leave persons who are not completely independent, such

as children, unattended in the vehicle.

CAUTION

When using the 12 volt power outlets the following notes are to be observed.

The sockets can only be used for the connection of approved electrical ac-

cessories with a total power consumption of up to 120 watts, otherwise the

electrical system of the vehicle may be damaged.

Connecting appliances when the engine is not running will drain the battery

of the vehicle!

Before switching the ignition on / off or before starting the engine, switch

off the devices which are connected to the sockets - there is a risk of damage

to the equipment due to voltage fluctuations.

230-volt socket in the rear centre console

Fig. 129  Open the cover of the 230 volt outlet / 230 volt outlet

Read and observe   and   on page 102 first.

The 230-volt socket has a child safety lock. When inserting the plug, the fuse

is released, the socket is activated and the warning light above the socket is

illuminates green (if this flashes red, then the socket is deactivated).
The socket works with the engine running (in STOP mode in vehicles with the

START-STOP system) and for about 10 minutes after the engine is switched

off, provided an appliance was still connected prior to switching off the engine

(the warning light flashes green)).

To use, fold up the cover of the socket in the direction of arrow 

» Fig. 129

and plug the electrical appliance plug into the socket.

An automatic deactivation of the socket can take place, for example, for

the following reasons.

Excessive current.

Low state of charge of the battery.

High outlet temperature.

If disabling reasons no longer exist, the automatic activation of the socket can

be done.
Should no automatic activation of the socket take place, the connected devi-

ces must be disconnected from the power outlet and reconnect after a short

time.

103

Practical features

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

WARNING

Make sure that no liquid or moisture enters into the socket - it can be fa-

tal! If fluid does manage to get into the power socket, completely dry out

the socket before reuse.

The child lock on the power socket is unlocked when using adapters and

extension cables which carry volts – risk of injury!

Do no insert any objects (e.g. knitting needles) into the contacts of the

power socket – risk of death!

CAUTION

The power socket can only be used for connecting approved electrical ac-

cessories with a two-pin 230V plug, with a total power uptake of up to

150 watt.

The plug of the electrical appliance must be plugged in up to the stop, other-

wise the child safety lock can be unlocked and the socket may be activated

but the electric appliance is still not receiving power.

Do not connect bulbs with neon tubes in the socket - there is a risk of dam-

aging the lamp.

For appliances with an independent power source (e.g. such as notebooks),

first connect the power source itself and only after that connect the appliance.

Operation

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

Transport of cargo

Luggage compartment

Introduction

When transporting heavy objects, the driving characteristics change due to

the shift in centre-of-gravity. Therefore, adjust the speed and driving mode ac-

cordingly.

When transporting cargo the following the instructions must be adhered to

Distribute the load evenly in the luggage compartment and secure it with

suitable lashing straps to the lashing eyes or securing nets so that they can-

not slip.

Place heavy objects as far forward in the luggage compartment as possible.

Tyre pressure is to match the load.

In the event of an accident, even small and light objects gain so much kinetic

energy that they can cause severe injuries.
The magnitude of the kinetic energy is dependent on the speed at which the

vehicle is travelling and the weight of the object.
