Hyundai Tucson: Seats / Safety Precautions

Adjusting the seats in a safe and comfortable position plays an important role for the safety of driver and passengers. Proper seating positions, secured seat belts, and protection from airbags work together to provide a measure of safety in the event of a collision.

WARNING

Do not use a cushion that reduces friction between the seat and the passenger. The passenger’s hips may slide under the lap portion of the seat belt during an accident or a sudden stop.

Serious or fatal internal injuries could result because the seat belt cannot operate properly.

Airbags

You can take steps to reduce the risk of being injured by an inflating airbag. Sitting too close to an airbag greatly increases the risk of injury in the event the airbag inflates.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) recommends that drivers allow at least 10 inches (25cm) between the center of the steering wheel and their chest.

WARNING

To reduce the risk of serious injury or death from an inflating airbag:

  • Adjust the driver’s seat as far to the rear as possible while maintaining your ability to control the vehicle.
  • Adjust the front passenger seat as far to the rear as possible.
  • Hold the steering wheel with hands at the 9 o’clock and 3 o’clock positions to minimize the risk of injuries to your hands and arms.
  • Never place anything or anyone between you and the airbag.
  • Do not allow the front passenger to place feet or legs on the dashboard to minimize the risk of leg injuries.

Seat belts

Always fasten your seat belt before starting any trip. At all times, passengers should sit upright and be properly restrained with a seat belt. Infants and small children must be restrained in appropriate Child Restraint Systems.

WARNING

To prevent serious injury or death:

  • Never use one seat belt for more than one occupant.
  • Always position the seatback upright with the lap portion of the seat belt snug and low across the hips.
  • Never allow children or small infants to ride on a passenger’s lap.
  • Do not route the seat belt across your neck, across sharp edges, or reroute the shoulder strap away from your body.
  • Do not allow the seat belt to become caught or jammed.
