  • To open the cup holder, tap on the button (2).
  • To close the cup holder, fold the cover back until it clicks into place.


  • Do not put any hot beverages in the cup holder while the vehicle is moving. Hot beverages could spill, which increases the risk of injury.
  • Do not use any breakable beverage containers (for example, made out of glass or porcelain).

    You could be injured by them in the event of an accident.


Beverage containers in the cup holders should always have a lid. Otherwise, the liquid inside could spill and cause damage to vehicle equipment.

Storage and compartments

Additional storage compartments

Depending on vehicle equipment, there are a variety of storage areas, compartments, and retainers, such as the glove compartment, for safely storing and securing objects.


  • To reduce the risk of injury, make sure all storage compartments are always closed while driving.
  • Loose objects can be thrown around the vehicle interior during sudden driving or braking maneuvers, which increases the risk of an accident. Store objects securely while driving.
  • Only use the storage compartments in the door trim panels to store small objects that will not stick out of the compartment and impair the function of the side airbags.
  • Only lightweight clothing should be hung from the garment hooks in the vehicle. Do not use clothes hangers to hang clothing.

    The pockets of the clothing must not contain any heavy, breakable, or sharp-edged objects. This could impair the effectiveness of the side curtain airbags.

  • Make sure your view toward the rear is not blocked, for example by hanging clothing or objects in the vehicle.
