Child safety

Child seats - location

Updated 7/23/2018

The position of a child in the car and the choice of equipment are dictated by the child's weight and size.

P3007 - Krockkudde och barnstol

Rear-facing child seat and airbag are not compatible.

Always fit rear-facing child seats in the rear seat if the passenger airbag is activated. If a child is sitting on the front passenger seat then he/she could suffer serious injury if the airbag deploys.

If the passenger airbag is deactivated then rear-facing child seats can be fitted on the front passenger seat.

Label on the passenger side's door pillar. The label becomes visible when the passenger door is opened.

The warning label for the passenger airbag is positioned as shown above.

You may place:

  • a rear-facing child seat on the front passenger seat when the passenger airbag is deactivated.
  • a front-facing child seat/booster cushion on the front passenger seat when the passenger airbag is activated.
  • one or more child seats/booster cushions in the rear seat.

Warning

Never use a rear-facing child seat on a seat protected by an activated airbag. Failure to follow this advice can lead to death or serious injury to the child.

Warning

Never allow anybody to stand or sit in front of the front passenger seat.

Never use a rear-facing child seat on the front passenger seat if the passenger airbag is activated.

Front-facing passengers (children and adults) must never sit on the front passenger seat if the passenger airbag is deactivated.

Failure to follow the advice given above can endanger life or lead to serious personal injury.

Warning

Booster cushions/child seats with steel braces or some other design that could rest on the seatbelt buckle's opening button must not be used, as they could cause the seatbelt buckle to open accidentally.

Do not allow the upper section of the child seat to rest against the windscreen.

Note

Regulations regarding the placement of children in cars vary from country to country. Check what does apply.
