Tailgate closing

To close, lower the tailgate until the lock clicks.

If the boot is not shut properly the warning light ´ comes on together with the message on reconfigurable multifunction display (where provided) (see Warning lights and messages chapter).

The addition of objects (speakers, spoilers, etc.) on the rear shelf or boot lid, except those envisaged by the manufacturer, may prevent the gas filled struts at the sides of the boot from working properly.

WARNING

When using the boot, make sure the loads you are carrying do not exceed the permitted weight (see section Technical specifications). Also make sure the items in the boot are arranged properly to prevent them being thrown forwards and injuring passengers should you brake sharply.

Never travel with objects on the rear shelf to prevent them being thrown forwards and injuring passengers in case of accident or sharp braking.
