Folding the backrest in the rear seat

The rear seat's backrest is divided into two parts. The two parts can be folded 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.
  • When loading long objects, they must always be strapped in securely to avoid injury and damage during sudden braking.
  • When getting out of the car, activate the parking brake and always switch off the car (either by leaving the car or manually via the centre display).
  • For cars with automatic gearbox, set the gear selector in P to prevent it from being moved by mistake.


There must be no objects in the rear seat when the backrest is to be folded. Nor may the seatbelts be connected. Otherwise there is a risk of damaging the upholstery in the rear seat.

The armrest* in the centre seat must be folded up before folding the seat down.

The through-load hatch in the rear seat must be closed before being folded.


The front seats may need to be moved forward and/or the backrests may need to be adjusted to allow the rear backrests to be folded all the way forward.

Lowering the backrest

To facilitate folding of the rear seat, the car must be stationary and at least one rear door open.

Pull the handles located on the car's left and right-hand backrests forwards to fold down the left and right-hand part of the rear seat respectively.

The backrest disengages from the lock and needs to be lowered manually to the horizontal position.

Raising the backrest

Raising the backrest to upright position is carried out manually:
Move the backrest up/back.
Press the backrest until the lock engages.
Adjust the centre seat head restraint if necessary.


The red indicator should no longer be displayed when the backrest has been folded back. If it is still displayed, the backrest has not been locked.


Check that the backrests and head restraints in the rear seat are locked properly after being folded up.
