Front Seats
Seat position
An ergonomically correct sitting position is important for safe and fatigue-free driving. We recommend the following procedure for adjusting the driver’s seat to suit individual requirements:

  1. Adjust the seat height to give yourself enough headroom and an unobstructed view outside the vehicle.
  2. Adjust the seat in fore-and-aft direction so that your leg is not fully straight and your entire foot is on the pedal when pressing the brake pedal fully.
  3. Grip the top half of the steering wheel. Set the backrest angle and the steering wheel position so that your arms are almost outstretched. However, your shoulders must still rest on the backrest.
  4. Adjust the seat fore-and-aft setting if necessary.
  5. Adjust the height of the headrest so that the upper edge is at eye level or higher.
