Mazda CX-5 Owners Manual: Rear Seat

Split Folding

The seatbacks can be folded down to provide more space in the luggage compartment.

WARNING

Tightly secure cargo in the luggage compartment when it is transported with the seatbacks folded down:

Driving without tightly securing cargo and luggage is dangerous as it could move and become an obstruction to driving during emergency braking or a collision resulting in an unexpected accident.

Always remove the child-restraint system from the rear seat before operating the remote handle levers for the rear seat:

Operating the remote handle levers while a rear-facing child-restraint system is in the rear seat is dangerous.

It could cause injury to a child seated in the child-restraint system when the seatback suddenly flips forward.

Make sure there is nobody in the rear seat area before operating (pulling) the remote handle levers (Vehicles with remote handle):

Not checking the rear seat area for persons before folding the seatbacks with the strap/remote handle levers is dangerous. The rear seat area is difficult to see from the rear of the vehicle. Operating (pulling) the remote handle levers without checking could cause injury to a person when a seatback suddenly flips forward.

CAUTION

When operating the rear seatback knob, make sure you support the seatback with your hand. If the seatback is not supported with your hand, it will flip forward suddenly and could cause injury to the finger that pushes the rear seatback knob down.

(Vehicles with remote handle) Before folding the seatbacks down with the remote handle levers, make sure there is no cup in a rear cup holder. Folding the seatbacks with the remote handle levers while a cup is in the cup holder could soil or damage the seat bottom and seatback.

(Vehicles with remote handle) Be careful of the following when using the remote handle levers:

On a downward slope, the seatback could flip forward faster than on a flat surface.

On an upward slope, the seatback may not fold down.

When the seatbacks cannot be folded down with levers, pull the rear seatback forward from inside the vehicle.

Folding both seatbacks down

Using remote handle

After checking that the rear seats are clear, open the liftgate and lower the seatback you want to fold down using the remote handle.

When folding the left side, operate the outer part of the remote handle.


CAUTION

Check the position of a front seat before folding a seatback.

Depending on the position of a front seat, it may not be possible to fold a seatback all the way down because it may hit the seatback of the front seat which could scratch or damage the front seat or its pocket.

(Folding the left seatback) Be careful when operating the remote handle with the center seat folded down. If a person sitting in the right rear seat places a hand on the center seat, it could be pinched by a seatback or seat component causing injury.


Using push knob

Push the rear seatback knob down.


Folding only center seat

Using remote handle

1. If the center head restraint is in the position for use, store it.

2. After checking that the center seat is clear, open the liftgate and pull the inside remote handle levers on the left side of the liftgate compartment.


Using strap

1. If the center head restraint is in the position for use, store it.

2. Pull the strap on the back of the seatback to fold the seatback forward.


To return the seatbacks to the upright position

1. Lift the seatbacks upright.

2. Pull on the top of the seatbacks from inside the vehicle to make sure they are locked.

WARNING

Always make sure the seat belts are fully pulled out from under the seatbacks:<

> A seat belt caught under a seatback after the seatback is returned to its upright position is dangerous. In a collision or sudden stop, the seat belt cannot provide adequate protection.

When returning the seatback to the upright position, make sure there is no red indication:

A rear seatback not fully returned and locked in the upright position is dangerous. Sudden stops or maneuvering could cause a seatback to flip forward suddenly resulting in injury. If the red indicator is visible on the back of the rear seatback knob, the seatback is not locked in the upright position.


Armrest

The rear armrest in the center of the rear seatback can be used (no occupant in the center seat) or placed upright.
