When developing seats the most modern methods were used.

The strengthened bearing design of seats provides the highest level of safety together with seat belts, limiters and natyazhitel of belts and, certainly, inflatable pillows. Thanks to multilayered structure of a filler of ergonomic seats, high percentage of natural fibers and difficult internal system of ventilation of a seat, people during the movement - and even on long trips - feels it is weakened and is not tired. The lumbar support provides optimum position of a backbone.

Adjustment of seats

For the sake of your personal security follow the following rules of adjustment of seats.

Do not regulate the driver's seat under way. Its unexpected shift can cause loss of control over the car and lead to accident.

The seat belt has to as it is possible to adjoin to a body more densely. Otherwise at head-on collisions the zone belt can come off up hips and injure the lower part of a stomach. Besides at leaky adjacent belt its holding effect is realized with delay.

It is inadmissible that during the movement of the car the back of a forward seat was rejected far back (it concerns first of all a passenger seat) as thus in case of accident there is a danger of "vyskalzyvaniye" of the person under a seat belt which will not be able to execute the protective function.

Seat with manual adjustment


1 Longitudinal adjustment

Having pulled for the handle, shift a seat in situation, convenient for yourself.
Having released the handle, slightly shake a seat back and forth that it reliably stopped.

2 Adjustment on height

Having pulled for the handle, adjust seat height, loading a pillow with a body weight or standing up from it.


3 Adjustment of a back

Having pulled for the handle, adjust a back inclination, leaning back on it or moving forward.

Correct landing

For unloading of vertebral disks sit down with the maximum shift back, leaning all back on a seat back. The pose at which the head settles down on one straight line with a backbone is considered ideal.

To reduce tension of muscles at distant trips, it is possible to increase a back inclination some. Thus, however, possibility of driving when the hands lying on the highest point of a wheel are slightly bent in elbows has to remain.

After adjustment of a seat make adjustment of a seat belt on height, address to the Section of System of safety.

Head restraints


Head restraints can be regulated on height, extending them from nests or pushing back.

Press the button (it is shown by an arrow) and remove a head restraint.


Press the button (it is shown by an arrow) and insert a head restraint into the directing.

3 Popliteal support:
Having pulled for the handle bring a popliteal support into situation, convenient for you.

Lumbar support *

The contour of a back can change so that its acting part fitted into a hollow of lumbar department of a backbone, creating a support for it.

Thus, the support of the top department of a basin and a backbone promoting the correct and free landing is provided.

Pressing the switch in front or behind reaches respectively increase or reduction of camber of a contour of a back.

By pressing the top or lower part of the switch camber of the top or lower part of a lumbar support increases.
