Rear seat

Lowering the backrests in the rear seat*

Updated 7/23/2018

The rear seat's backrest is divided into two parts. The two parts can be lowered forward individually.


Adjust the seat and fix it before driving away. Take care when adjusting the seat. Uncontrolled or careless adjustment can lead to trapping injuries.


There must be no objects on the rear seat when the backrest is to be folded down. The seat belts must not be connected either. Otherwise there is a risk of damaging the rear seat upholstery.


The integrated booster cushions* on the outer seats must be lowered before lowering the seat.

The armrest* for the centre seat must be raised before lowering the seat.

If the car has private locking, the tailgate must be closed before lowering the seat.


The front seats may need to be pushed forwards, and/or the backrests adjusted upwards, in order that the rear backrests can be fully folded forward.
