Load distribution

General notes

../../../../global/pictures_mb/symb_ruf.png

Excessive loads on individual points of the load compartment floor or on the load surface impair vehicle handling characteristics and could cause damage to the floor covering.

The overall centre of gravity of the load should always be as low as possible, centred and between the axles near the rear axle.

Always transport loads in the load compartment and with the seat backrests folded up and properly locked in position.

Always place the load against the backrests of the front or rear seats.

Move large and heavy loads as far towards the front of the vehicle as possible against the front or rear seats. Stow loads flush with the rear or front seats.

Always additionally secure the load with suitable load-securing aids or lashing material.

Observe the following notes:

  • Do not stack loads higher than the upper edge of the backrests.

  • Transport loads behind seats that are not occupied.

  • If the rear bench seat is not occupied, insert the seat belts crosswise into the buckle of the opposite seat belt.

You can vary the load compartment according to your transportation requirements as follows:

  • by folding the seat backrests forward to the table position

  • by folding the rear seats forward

  • by folding the rear bench seat forward

  • by removing the rear bench seat

You will find information about the rear seats and the rear bench seat in the "Seats" section more.
