The driver's and front passenger's seats are equipped with a headrest for the occupant's safety and comfort.
The headrest not only provides comfort for the driver and front passenger, but also helps protect the head and neck in the event of a rear collision.
For maximum effectiveness in case of an accident, the headrest should be adjusted so the middle of the headrest is as high as the center of gravity of an occupant's head. Generally, the center of gravity of most people's head is similar with the height of the top of their eyes.
Also, adjust the headrest as close to your head as possible. For this reason, the use of a cushion that holds the body away from the seatback is not recommended.
Excessive pulling or pushing may damage the headrest.
Adjusting the height up and down
To raise the headrest:
If you recline the seatback towards the front with the headrest and seat cushion raised, the headrest may come in contact with the sun visor or other parts of the vehicle.
To remove the headrest:
NEVER allow anyone to ride in a seat with the headrest removed or reversed.
Headrests can provide critical neck and head support in a crash.
To reinstall the headrest:
To reduce the risk of injury to the head or neck, always make sure the headrest is locked into position and adjusted properly after reinstalling.
Seatback pocket (if equipped)
There is a pocket (1) in the front seat back for storing simple books or atlases, and USB charger (2) (if equipped) for rear passengers.
Do not put heavy or sharp objects in the seatback pockets. In an accident they could come loose from the pocket and injure vehicle occupants.
