Seating position
Introduction
Number of seats
The vehicle has a total of five seats: two seats in the front and three seats in the back.
Every seat is equipped with a safety belt.
WARNING
Sitting incorrectly in the vehicle can increase the risk of serious or fatal injuries during sudden driving or braking maneuvers, in the event of a collision or
accident, and if the airbags are deployed.
Before the vehicle starts to move, all vehicle occupants must always be in the correct seating position and maintain it while driving. Safety belts must
also be fastened and remain fastened.
The number of persons in the vehicle must not exceed the number of seats with safety belts.
Always secure children in the vehicle with an approved and suitable child restraint system according to the child's body size and weight
Transporting
children safely and Airbag system.
Always keep feet in the footwell while driving. For example, never rest feet on the seat or on the instrument panel and never hold feet out of the window.
Otherwise, if the airbag and the safety belt deploy, they could increase the risk of injury in the event of an accident instead of providing protection.
Risk of injury due to an incorrect seating position
Please read the introductory information and heed the Warnings and Notice
Introduction.
The risk of serious or fatal injuries will increase if safety belts are not worn or are incorrectly fastened. Safety belts can only achieve the optimum protection if they
are routed correctly. An incorrect seating position significantly impairs the protective function of the safety belt. This could result in serious or fatal injuries. The risk o
serious or fatal injuries increases even more if a deployed airbag strikes a passenger who is sitting in an incorrect seating position. The driver is responsible for all
vehicle occupants and especially for children who are being transported in the vehicle.
The following list includes examples of seating positions that could be dangerous for all vehicle occupants.
39
The following points always apply when the vehicle is in motion:
Never stand inside the vehicle.
Never stand on the seats.
Never kneel on the seats.
Never tilt your seat backrest too far back.
Never lean against the instrument panel.
Never lay down in the seats in the vehicle interior or on the rear bench seat.
Never sit only on the front section of the seat.
Never sit sideways on the seat.
Never lean against the window.
Never place your feet out of the window.
Never place your feet on the instrument panel.
Never place your feet on the seat cushion or on the seat backrest.
Never ride in the footwell.
Never sit on the armrests.
Never drive or ride in a seat without fastening your safety belt.
Never ride in the trunk.
WARNING
Incorrect seating positions in the vehicle increase the risk of serious or fatal injuries in the event of an accident or sudden driving and braking maneuvers,
especially if the airbags are deployed and exert force on a vehicle occupant who is not sitting correctly.
All vehicle occupants must always sit in the correct seating position and have their own safety belts correctly fastened while driving.
Correct seating position
Please read the introductory information and heed the Warnings and Notice
Introduction.
Fig. 22 General example: correct distance between the driver and the steering wheel, correct safety belt routing and correct head restraint adjustment.

Safety belts
Introduction
Check the condition of all of the safety belts regularly. If there is damage to the belt fabric, the belt connections, the automatic safety belt retractor or the buckle,
have the affected safety belt replaced immediately by suitably qualified professionals
. The authorized Volkswagen dealer or authorized Volkswagen Service
Facility must use the correct parts for the vehicle, equipment and model year. Volkswagen recommends contacting an authorized Volkswagen dealer or authorized
Volkswagen Service Facility.
WARNING
The risk of serious and fatal injuries increases if the safety belts are not worn or are worn incorrectly.
Safety belts are the most effective way to reduce the risk of serious and fatal injuries in a collision. Before every trip, vehicle occupants must therefore
seat themselves correctly, fasten the safety belt that belongs to the seat they are using, and keep it fastened while the vehicle is in motion. This applies to
all passengers and at all times, including during city driving.
Secure only one person with a safety belt.
Secure children in the vehicle with a child restraint that is appropriate for their weight and height and with the safety belt used correctly
Transporting
children safely.
Never allow children or infants to ride on anyone's lap and never strap children or infants to another person with the same safety belt.
Only ever insert and latch the buckle tongue in the belt buckle for the corresponding seat. Using a buckle from another seat reduces the protection
provided by the safety belt and can cause serious injuries.
Do not wear extremely bulky, loose clothing in the vehicle, such as a coat over a sports jacket, because this could impair the fit and function of the safety
belt.
WARNING
If the belt webbing or other parts of the safety belts are damaged, the safety belts could tear during a collision or sudden braking maneuver and cause serious or
fatal injuries.
Never damage the safety belts by trapping them or chafing them on sharp edges.
Have damaged safety belts replaced immediately with new safety belts that are approved for the vehicle by Volkswagen. Safety belts that are stretched
during a collision must be replaced by an authorized Volkswagen dealer or authorized Volkswagen Service Facility. Volkswagen recommends contacting
an authorized Volkswagen dealer or authorized Volkswagen Service Facility. It may be necessary to replace them even if there is no visible damage.
Check the safety belts' anchorage points as well.
Never try to repair, modify, or remove the safety belts yourself. Have all repairs to safety belts, safety belt retractors, and buckle components performed
only by an authorized Volkswagen dealer or authorized Volkswagen Service Facility. Volkswagen recommends contacting an authorized Volkswagen
dealer or authorized Volkswagen Service Facility.
