The lumbar support provides optimum position of a backbone.

Adjustment of seats

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

Do not regulate a seat of the driver on the move. Its unexpected displacement can cause control loss over the car and lead to failure.

The seat belt should as it is possible to adjoin to a body more densely. Otherwise at head-on collisions the zone belt can come off upwards on hips and injure the bottom part of a stomach. Besides at leaky adjoining belt its keeping effect is realised with delay.

It is inadmissible, that during movement of the car the back of a forward seat has been rejected far back (it concerns first of all a passenger seat) as thus in case of failure there is a danger “выскальзывания” the person under a seat belt which cannot execute the protective function.

Seat with manual adjustment

2 Adjustment on height

Having pulled for the handle, adjust seat height, loading a pillow with a body weight or half-rising 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 позвоночных disks sit down with the maximum shift back, leaning all back against a seat back. Ideal the pose at which the head settles down on one straight line with a backbone is considered.

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

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



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

The middle of headrests should settle down approximately at level of ears.

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

Adjust headrest position.

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

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