Rear Seat

Split Folding the Seatbacks

By lowering the rear seatbacks the
luggage compartment space can be
expanded.

WARNING

Do not drive the vehicle with
occupants on folded down seatbacks
or in the luggage compartment.

Putting occupants in the luggage
compartment is dangerous because
seat belts cannot be fastened which
could lead to serious injury or death
during sudden braking or a collision.

Do not allow children to play inside
the vehicle with the seatbacks
lowered.

Allowing children to play in the vehicle
with the seatbacks folded down is
dangerous. If a child enters the luggage
compartment and the seatbacks were
raised back up, the child may become
trapped in the luggage compartment
which could lead to an accident.

Tightly secure cargo in the luggage
compartment when it is transported
with the seatbacks folded down.

Driving without tightly securing cargo
and luggage is dangerous as it could
move and become an obstruction to
driving during emergency braking or a
collision resulting in an unexpected
accident.

When transporting cargo, do not
allow the cargo to exceed the height
of the seatbacks.

Transporting cargo stacked higher than
the seatbacks is dangerous as visibility
to the rear and sides of the vehicle is
reduced which could interfere with
driving operations and lead to an
accident.

Lowering the seatbacks

CAUTION

¾

(5–Door)

When folding the seatback forward,
always support the seatback with
your hand. If it is not supported by a
hand, fingers or the hand pressing
the push knob could be injured.

¾

Check the position of a front seat
before folding a rear seatback.
Depending on the position of a front
seat, it may not be possible to fold a
rear seatback all the way down
because it may hit the seatback of
the front seat which could scratch or
damage the front seat or its pocket.
Lower or remove the head restraint
on the rear outboard seat if
necessary.

1. Open the trunk lid and pull the

lever of the seatback you want to
fold down.

2. Open a rear door and fold the rear

seat forward.

(5–Door)

Press the push knob to fold down the
seatback.

To return the seatback to its upright
position:

WARNING

When returning a seatback to its
upright position, make sure the
3-point seat belt is not caught in the
seatback and the 3-point seat belt is
not twisted.

If the seat belt is used while it is
twisted and caught in the seatback, the
seat belt cannot function at its full
capacity, which could cause serious
injury or death.

When returning a seatback to its
upright position, make sure that it is
firmly locked and the red indication is
not visible (5–Door).

If the red indication is visible behind
the push knob, it means the seatback
is not locked. If the vehicle is driven
without the seatback locked, it could
fold down suddenly and cause an
accident.

WARNING

Never put your hands and fingers
around the moving parts of the seat
and armrest:

Putting your hands and fingers around
the moving parts of the seat and
armrest is dangerous as they could get
injured.

Head Restraints

Head Restraints

Your vehicle is equipped with head
restraints on all outboard seats and the
rear center seat. The head restraints are
intended to help protect you and the
passengers from neck injury.

WARNING

Always drive with the head restraints
installed when seats are being used
and make sure they are properly
adjusted:

Driving with the head restraints
adjusted too low or removed is
dangerous. With no support behind
your head, your neck could be
seriously injured in a collision.

Height Adjustment

Adjust the head restraint so that the
center is even with the top of the
passenger's ears.

To raise a head restraint, pull it up to
the desired position.
To lower the head restraint, press the
stop-catch release, then push the head
restraint down.

To install the head restraint, insert the
legs into the holes while pressing the
stop-catch.

WARNING

Always drive with the head restraints
installed when seats are being used
and make sure they are properly
installed:

Driving with the head restraints not
installed is dangerous. With no support
behind your head, your neck could be
seriously injured in a collision.

After installing a head restraint, try
lifting it to make sure that it does not
pull out:

Driving with an unsecured head
restraint is dangerous as the
effectiveness of the head restraint will
be compromised which could cause it
to unexpectedly detach from the seat.

CAUTION

¾

When installing a head restraint,
make sure that it is installed correctly
with the front of the head restraint
facing forward. If the head restraint is
installed incorrectly, it could detach
from the seat during a collision and
result in injury.

¾

The head restraints on each of the
front and rear seats are specialized to
each seat. Do not switch around the
head restraint positions. If a head
restraint is not installed to its correct
seat position, the effectiveness of the
head restraint during a collision will
be compromised which could cause
injury.

Seat Belt Precautions

Seat Belt Precautions

Seat belts help to decrease the
possibility of severe injury during
accidents and sudden stops. Mazda
recommends that the driver and all
passengers always wear seat belts.

(Mexico)

All the seats have lap/shoulder belts.
These belts have retractors with inertia
locks that keep them out of the way
when not in use. The locks allow the
belts to remain comfortable on users,
but they will lock in position during a
collision.

(Except Mexico)

All of the seat belt retractors are
designed to keep the lap/shoulder
belts out of the way when not in use.
The driver's seat belt has no provisions
for child-restraint systems and has only
an emergency locking mode. The
driver may wear it comfortably, and it
will lock during a collision.
However, the front passenger's seat
and all rear lap/shoulder belt
retractors operate in two modes:
emergency locking mode, and for
child-restraint systems, automatic
locking mode. While we recommend
you put all children in the rear seats, if
you must use the front passenger seat
for a child, slide the front passenger
seat as far back as possible and make
sure any child-restraint system is
secured properly.

WARNING

Always wear your seat belt and make
sure all occupants are properly
restrained:

Not wearing a seat belt is extremely
dangerous. During a collision,
occupants not wearing seat belts could
hit someone or things inside the
vehicle or even be thrown out of the
vehicle. They could be seriously injured
or even killed. In the same collision,
occupants wearing seat belts would be
much safer.

Do not wear twisted seat belts:

Twisted seat belts are dangerous. In a
collision, the full width of the belt is
not available to absorb the impact.
This puts more force on the bones
beneath the belt, which could cause
serious injury or death. So, if your seat
belt is twisted, you must straighten the
seat belt to remove any twists and to
allow the full width of the belt to be
used.

Never use one seat belt on more than
one person at a time:

Using one seat belt for more than one
person at a time is dangerous. A seat
belt used in this way cannot spread the
impact forces properly and the two
passengers could be crushed together
and seriously injured or even killed.
Never use one belt for more than one
person at a time and always operate
the vehicle with each occupant
properly restrained.
