This chapter contains information on the following subjects:

 → General information on transporting children in the vehicle  

 → Various securing systems

It is absolutely necessary to read all of the information concerning the airbag system before transporting babies or children in a child seat on the front passenger seat.

This information is very important for the safety of the driver and the safety of all passengers, babies and small children in particular.

Volkswagen recommends using child seats from Volkswagen's range of accessories. These child seats were developed and approved for use in Volkswagen vehicles. Child seats for the various different securing systems are available from a Volkswagen dealer.

Using child restraint systems with base or support foot

Some child restraint systems have a base or an additional support foot which rest on the vehicle floor. In vehicles with a floor stowage compartment, an accessory element for the floor stowage compartment is necessary for the safe use of the base or the support foot, so that the child restraint system can be installed properly and securely.

Additional information and warnings:

  • Seat belts  
  • Airbag system  
  • Stowage areas (rear footwell)  


Children who are not strapped in or who are not strapped in properly could sustain severe or fatal injuries while the vehicle is in motion.
  • Never use a rear-facing child seat on the front passenger seat when the front passenger front airbag is switched on.
  • Children up to 12 years of age should always be transported on the rear seat.
  • Always secure children in the vehicle in an authorised restraint system which is suitable for their height and weight.
  • Always fasten children's seat belts correctly and make sure they assume a correct sitting position.
  • Adjust the seat backrest to an upright position if a child seat is to be used on this seat.
  • Do not allow children to sit with their heads or any other body parts in the side airbag's deployment zone.
  • Make sure the seat belt routing is correct.
  • Never travel when children or babies are being carried on somebody's lap.
  • Only ever fasten one child into a child seat.
  • When using a child seat with a base or support foot, always be sure that the base or support foot is installed properly and securely.
  • If the vehicle is equipped with a stowage compartment on the vehicle floor in front of the rear row of seats, the stowage compartment cannot be used as intended. It must be filled with special accessories so that the base or support foot of the child seat can be supported securely when the stowage compartment is closed, ensuring that the child seat is then properly secured. If the stowage compartment is not secured accordingly in conjunction with a child seat with base or support foot, it could break in the event of an accident, the child could be tossed around and sustain serious injuries.
  • Read and follow the instructions by the manufacturer of the child seat.


An unsecured, unoccupied child seat could be flung through the vehicle interior in the event of a sudden braking manoeuvre or accident. This could cause injuries.
  • Always secure child seats safely or stow them in the luggage compartment if they are not being used while the vehicle is in motion.

Replace child seats that withstand any force during an accident as they could have sustained damage which may not be visible.
