2024 Subaru Front Seats

WARNING

  • Never adjust the seat while driving, as personal injury or loss of vehicle control may occur.
  • Before adjusting the seat, ensure nothing is blocking the adjusting mechanism.
  • After adjusting the seat, move it back and forth to ensure the seat is securely locked. If it is not, it may move suddenly or the seat-belt may not operate properly.
  • Do not put objects under the front seats. They may interfere with front seat locking mechanism and cause an accident.
  • Seatbelts provide maximum restraint when the occupant sits back and upright in the seat. To reduce the risk of sliding under the seatbelt in a collision, the front seatbacks should always be used in the upright position while the vehicle is running. If the front seatbacks are not in the upright position and a collision occurs, the risk of sliding under the lap belt and of the lap belt sliding up over the abdomen will increase, and both can result in serious injury or death.
  • The SRS airbags deploy with considerable speed and force. Occupants who are not seated in the proper upright position when the SRS airbag deploys could suffer very serious injuries. Because the SRS airbag needs enough space for deployment, the driver should always sit up-right and well back in the seat as far from the steering wheel as practical while still maintaining full vehicle control, and the front passenger should move the seat as far back as possible and sit upright and well back in the seat.

2024 Subaru Crosstrek Front Seats 01

WARNING
NEVER INSTALL A REARWARD-FACING CHILD RESTRAINT SYS-TEM ON THE FRONT PASSEN-GER’S SEAT. DOING SO RISKS SERIOUS INJURY OR DEATH TO THE CHILD BY PLACING THE CHILD’S HEAD TOO CLOSE TO THE SRS AIRBAG.

  • SUBARU strongly recommends that ALL infants and children (including those in child restraint systems) sit in the REAR seat properly restrained in a child restraint system or in a seatbelt, whichever is appropriate for the child’s age, height and weight.

The SRS airbag deploys with considerable speed and force and can injure or even kill children, especially if they are not restrained or improperly re-strained. Because children are lighter and weaker than adults, their risk of being injured from deployment is greater. According to accident statistics, children are safer when properly restrained in the rear seating positions than in the front seating positions. For instructions and precautions concerning child restraint systems, refer to “Child Restraint Systems”

2024 Subaru Crosstrek Front Seats 02

WARNING
To prevent the passenger from sliding under the seatbelt in the event of a collision, always put the seatback in the upright position while the vehicle is in motion. Also, do not place objects such as cushions between the passenger and the seat-back. If you do so, the risk of sliding under the lap belt and of the lap belt sliding up over the abdomen will increase, and both can result in serious injury or death.
