Fold-down Rear Seats (Minivan)
Seats in saloon cars, estate cars and vans have always been able to be folded in a, more or less intelligent manner. In this case, also the third row of seats. Indeed, the seats in the second row must also be considered. This results in a seat fold-down system almost like in a camper (motor-home).The user is spared the cumbersome job of removing the seats and one obtains a level-, and in addition, also a variable luggage compartment. Should a really level surface be needed, the headrests can also be simply removed and stored. One disadvantage is however, that the third row seats are thinly upholstered and offer little side support.
The second seat row is moved with the folded seat surface forward (Fig. 1) and is even more effective protection against slipping charge during braking. With the much thinner padded seats of the third row remain fundamentally interconnected seating surface and backrest (Fig. 2). Folded forward, the upper part of the backrest first strikes the floor (Fig. 4). The recesses in the floor are so large that they can take back and seat successively. At the end can be moved the seat bench of the second row back again. At the same time the boot can be used in variable length. 08/12
