Audi A1 Safety Safety first Correct sitting positions
Properly adjusted head restraints are an important part of the Audi A1's occupant protection system. They can help to reduce the risk of injuries in most accident situations.
The head restraints must be adjusted properly to provide maximum protection.
Adjust the front head restraints so that the top of the head restraint is level with the top of your head. If this is not possible, try to adjust the head restraint as near as possible to this position.
Before carrying passengers on the rear seats, pull the head restraints on the occupied seats all the way up Link.
For more information on how to adjust the head restraints, see Link.
