Volkswagen Touran Owners Manual: Using a child seat on the front passenger seat

First read and observe the introductory information and safety warnings

Not all countries allow you to transport children on the front passenger seat. Not every child seat is suitable for use on the front passenger seat. Volkswagen dealerships keep an up-to-date list of all authorised child seats. Only use child seats which have been authorised for your vehicle.

The active front airbag on the front passenger side presents a major danger to a child. The front passenger seat is life threatening to a child if you transport the child in a rear-facing child seat.

If a rear-facing child seat is secured to the front passenger seat, an inflating front passenger front airbag can strike it with such force that critical or fatal injuries may occur  . Therefore, never use a rear-facing child seat on the front passenger seat when the front passenger front airbag is activated.

Only use a rear-facing child seat on the front passenger seat when you have ascertained that the front passenger front airbag has been switched off. This is confirmed when the yellow indicator lamp in the dash panel PASSENGER AIR BAG lights up   . If the front passenger front airbag cannot be switched off and stays active, do not transport any children on the front passenger seat  .

What must you be aware of when using a child seat on the front passenger seat:

Suitable child seats

The child seat must be specially authorised by the manufacturer for use on the front passenger seat in vehicles with front and side airbags.

Universal child seats in groups 0, 0+, 1, 2, or 3, as specified in ECE-R 44, can be fitted to the front passenger seat.

DANGER

If a child seat is secured to the front passenger seat, the risk to the child of sustaining critical or fatal injuries in the event of an accident increases. Never use a rear-facing child seat on the front passenger seat if the front passenger front airbag is enabled. The child could suffer fatal injuries when the front airbag is activated as the child seat will be hit by the airbag with full force and thrown against the seat backrest.

DANGER

The following points must be ensured when, in exceptional circumstances, a child is transported in a rear-facing child seat on the front passenger seat.
