First read and observe the introductory information and safety warnings

The side airbags are located in the outer seat backrest cushions of the driver seat and front passenger seat   B. Depending on the vehicle equipment level, side airbags may also be fitted for the outer rear seats. They are located between the door opening and the backrests. The locations of the airbags are marked with stickers with the word AIRBAG. The areas marked in red   indicate the side airbag deployment zones.

During a side collision, the side airbags will be deployed on the vehicle's side of impact, thus reducing the risk of injury to the areas of the vehicle occupants' bodies facing the impact.

WARNING

Once triggered, the airbag inflates at high speed.

WARNING

Incorrect use of the driver and front passenger seat could hinder the proper function of the side airbag and cause serious injury.
