Upper mounting points for child seats

The car is equipped with upper mounting points for child seats on the rear seat's outer seats.

The upper mounting points are primarily intended for use with front-facing child seats.

Always follow the manufacturer's installation instructions when connecting a child seat to the upper mounting points.

The location of the mounting points

Mounting point locations for the rear seat are indicated by symbols on the rear of the backrest.

The mounting points for the rear seat are located on the rear of the rear seat's outer seats.


The child seat's upper straps must be routed through the hole in the head restraint leg before they are tensioned at the mounting point. If this is not possible, follow the recommendations from the child seat manufacturer.


Fold the head restraints in order to facilitate fitting this type of child seat in cars with folding head restraints on the outer seats, raise the head restraint after fitting.

The head restraint must always be raised when the child restraint system is used.


In cars with a cargo cover over the luggage compartment, this must be removed before child seats can be attached to the securing points.

Specific information for Australia

To comply with Australian requirements all Volvo cars are fitted with Child Restraint Upper Anchorages for the rear seat. The following additional information should be read in conjunction with the above information.

The reason for this legislation is to provide upper anchorages for the attachment of Child Restraints and facilitate the transfer of Child Restraints from one car to another, since they would have similar Upper Restraint Anchorages fitted as standard.

The three anchorages are located on the back of the rear seat backrests.

Refer to the manufacturers' instructions for securing your child seat.


Child restraint anchorages are designed to withstand only those loads imposed by correctly fitted child restraints. Under no circumstances are they to be used for adult seatbelts, harnesses or for attaching other items or equipment to the vehicle.
