Closing the tailgate

Locking the tailgate

The vehicle will lock again automatically after approximately 120 seconds if you do not open one of the doors or the tailgate. This function prevents the vehicle from remaining unlocked if the unlocking button is pressed by mistake.

The tailgate can only be locked when it is properly closed and engaged.

WARNING

Serious injuries can occur if the tailgate is closed incorrectly or without due care and attention.

Before closing the tailgate, check that the vehicle key is not in the luggage compartment.
