Through the reel, the belt automatically adapts to the body of the passenger wearing it, allowing freedom of movement.

When the vehicle is parked on a steep slope the reel mechanism may block; this is normal. The reel mechanism prevents the webbing coming out when it is jerked or if the vehicle brakes sharply, as in a collision or when cornering at high speed.

Every rear seat (where provided) is fitted with inertial seat belts with three anchor points and reel.

IMPORTANT

Before fastening the seat belts make sure the seat is properly anchored.
