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. The locations of the airbags can be identified by the presence of stickers containing the word AIRBAG. The areas marked in red in show the side airbag deployment zones.

During a side collision, the side airbags will be deployed on the side of the vehicle which is impacted, 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.
