Toyota Yaris: Installing Child-Restraint Systems / If You Must Use a Child-Restraint System in the Front Seat for Children

Toyota Yaris XP210 (2020-2021) Owner's Manual / Essential Safety Equipment / Child Restraint / Installing Child-Restraint Systems / If You Must Use a Child-Restraint System in the Front Seat for Children

If you cannot put all children in the rear seat, at least put the smallest children in the rear and be sure the largest child up front uses a frontfacing child-restraint system.

NEVER put a rear-facing child-restraint system on the front passenger seat whether your vehicle is equipped with a occupant classification sensor or not.

This seat is also not set up for tethered child-restraint systems, put them in one of the rear seat positions set up with tether anchors.

Likewise the LATCH child-restraint system cannot be secured in the front passenger’s seat and should be used in the rear seat.

Do not allow anyone to lean over or against the side window since your vehicle has side and curtain air bags, it could cause serious injuries to an out of position occupant. As children more often sleep in cars, it is better to put them in the rear seat.

If installing the child-restraint system on the front seat is unavoidable, follow these instructions when using a front-facing child-restraint system in the front passenger’s seat.

  • To check if your front seats have side air bags: The vehicle equipped with side air bag will have a “SRS AIRBAG” tag on the outboard shoulder of the front seats.
  • To check if your vehicle has curtain air bags: The vehicle equipped with curtain air bag will have an “SRS AIRBAG” marking on the window pillars along the roof edge.

WARNING

Always move the front passenger seat as far back as possible if installing a front-facing child-restraint system on it is unavoidable

As your vehicle has front air bags and doubly so because your vehicle has side air bags, a front-facing child-restraint system should be put on the front passenger seat only when it is unavoidable.

Even if the front passenger air bag deactivation indicator light illuminates, always move the seat as far back as possible, because the force of a deploying air bag could cause serious injury or death to the child.

Never use a rear-facing child-restraint system in the front seat with an air bag that could deploy

Rear-facing child-restraint systems on the front seat are particularly dangerous.

Even in a moderate collision, the child-restraint system can be hit by a deploying air bag and moved violently backward resulting in serious injury or death to the child. Even though you may feel assured that the front passenger air bag will not deploy based on the fact that the front passenger air bag deactivation indicator light illuminates, never use a rear-facing child-restraint system in the front seat.

Do not allow a child or anyone to lean over or against the side window of a vehicle with side and curtain air bags

It is dangerous to allow anyone to lean over or against the side window, the area of the front passenger seat, the front and rear window pillars and the roof edge along both sides from which the side and curtain air bags deploy, even if a child-restraint system is used. The impact of inflation from a side or curtain air bag could cause serious injury or death to an out of position child. Furthermore, leaning over or against the front door could block the side and curtain air bags and eliminate the advantages of supplemental protection. With the front air bag and the additional side air bag that comes out of the front seat, the rear seat is always a better location for children. Take special care not to allow a child to lean over or against the side window, even if the child is seated in a child-restraint system.

WARNING

Always remove the head restraint and install child-restraint system

Installing a child-restraint system without removing the head restraint is dangerous. The child-restraint system cannot be installed correctly which may result in death or injury to the child in a collision.

Always install the head restraint and adjust it to the appropriate position after removing the child-restraint system

Driving with the head restraint removed is dangerous as impact to the occupant’s head cannot be prevented during emergency braking or in a collision, which could result in a serious accident, injury or death. Refer to Head Restraints
