Audi Q7: Steering wheel

General information

Make sure that:

  • The distance between your upper body and the steering wheel is at least 10 inches (25 cm)
  • Your arms are bent slightly at the elbows
  • You have a sufficient view of the area around the vehicle and you have a clear view of the instrument cluster and head-up display.
  • You are always holding the steering wheel with both hands on the outer edge at the sides (9:00 and 3:00 position) when driving

WARNING

  • To reduce the risk of an accident, make sure the steering wheel is adjusted correctly and cannot be moved out of position before you start to drive.
  • If you are too close to the steering wheel, the driver's airbag cannot provide optimal protection, which increases the risk of injury or fatality.
  • Never hold the steering wheel in the 12:00 position or in any other way, such as holding the center of the steering wheel. Otherwise, your arms, hands, and head could be injured in the event that the driver's airbag deploys.
