2.1 Seats
Sitting in Correct Position
Follow the tips below for a comfortable and safe journey:
•  Sit in an upright position with the base of your spine pressed against the seat back
•  The driver and front passenger seat head restraint has 5 positions. Adjust it as close as possible to the above specified position, with the top of the head restraint even with the top of your head
•  Maintain sufficient distance between yourself and the steering wheel. Maintain at least a Ten inch (10") distance from the centre of the steering wheel to your chest
•  The top curve of the steering wheel should align with your chin for ideal road visibility
•  Adjust your seat and seat back angle such that your wrists rest on the steering wheel
•  Ensure your legs are in bent position while fully depressing the clutch pedal
The seat should be adjusted while still maintaining control of the foot pedals (able to fully depress the clutch pedal), steering wheel (rest the wrists on the steering wheel) and your view of the instrument panel controls.
Never adjust the driver's seat while the vehicle is in motion. The seat movement may be more than expectation and cause the driver to unintentionally operate the accelerator or brake, or turn the steering wheel, causing loss of control of the vehicle, an accident or serious personal injury. Adjust the driver's seat only when the vehicle is stationary.
Never put objects under the seats. They may interfere with the seat-lock mechanism or unexpectedly activate the seat position adjusting lever, causing the seat to suddenly move, resulting in loss of control of the vehicle, an accident or serious personal injury.
While adjusting the seat, do not put your hands under the seat or near the moving parts. This may lead to injuries.

The more the seat is reclined, the greater the risk of serious injury.

2.3 Seat Belt
2.3.1 General Warnings and Instructions
At least once each month, inspect the seat belt webbing for any cuts, tears, or other signs of wear (such as fraying along the edges). Also inspect the anchors, retractors, and buckles to be sure they are tight and operational.
•  All occupants, including the driver, should always wear their seat belt no matter how short the trip in order to minimize the risk of severe injury in the event of a crash. In an accident, an un-belted passenger becomes a projectile, and can cause serious injury to himself or another passenger.
•  In a rollover crash, an un-belted person is significantly more likely prone to Injury than a person wearing a seat belt
•  In order to be properly buckled, you must always sit up straight and keep your feet on the floor in front of you. The lap part must be worn low and tight across your hips, just touching the top of your thighs. While fastening the seat belt, the shoulder strap of the seat belt must pass over your chest and top of your shoulder. It must never touch your neck, face, the side of your shoulder, arm, or pass under your arm. The belt must always be flat against your body and not twisted in any way. Nothing, such as an arm rest, a pocketbook, or any external objects should be between you and the seat belt. Improperly worn of a seat belt will reduce the protection in an accident.
•  Seat belts should be adjusted as tightly as possible, consistent with comfort to properly secure the wearer in the seat.
•  The seat belts provided for your vehicle are designed for adults must be properly used and maintained.
•  For usage of adult seat belt to secure children, refer to section of manual for child seat positions and use a child restraint systems
•  Passengers should not move out of or change seats while the vehicle is in motion. Passenger who does not wear the seat belts will be under a high risk of thrown against the vehicle inside hard parts, against other occupants or out of the vehicle during emergency stop or collision.
•  Do not use any accessories on seat belts or modify in any way the seat belt system. Devices claiming to improve occupant comfort or reposition the seat belt can reduce the protection provided by the seat belt and increase the chance of serious injury in a crash
•  An accident or emergency stop, can damage your seat belt system, even if the accident is “minor”. Please have your Mahindra Authorised Dealer inspect the seat belt system after an accident
•  Please be aware that any unsecured item in your vehicle, such as your pet, unsecured child restraint system, a laptop or mobile phones, can become a projectile in the event of an accident or sudden stop, causing injuries to occupants in the vehicle
Never use a damaged seat belt system. A damaged seat belt will not provide protection in an accident, resulting in serious injury.
•  Seat belt systems are prone to abuse. They are not indestructible. They must be handled with care to avoid damage
•  Keep the belts clean and dry. Belt retraction may become difficult if the belts and webbings are soiled. If they need cleaning, use a mild soap solution or lukewarm water. Never use bleach, dye, or abrasive cleaners. These chemicals will severely weaken the belts
•  Retractors in 3-point type seat belts retract the seat belts when not in use. The inertia lock and coil spring allow the belts to remain comfortable on users during normal driving. During accidents or abrupt stops, inertia locks restrict the sudden forward movement of the wearer
Prevention of seat belt Slow retraction:
1. Check if there any twist on in-board or out-board side of safety belt.
2. Check if dust accumulated on outer parts such as Webbing , D-Loop, Tongue stopper and Tongue.
3. Remove the dust from D-Loop, Webbing, Tongue & Tongue stopper by compressed air or air blower.
4. Use clean and lint free cloth and hand gloves for cleaning safety belt parts D-Loop, Webbing, Tongue & Tongue stopper. Do not use any chemicals and cleaning fluids could damage the seat belt assembly.
5. Inspect the Webbing for retraction performance. Safety belt assembly cleaning required if seat belt retraction becomes very slow due to dust and soil accumulation on safety belt assembly, then below cleaning procedure to be followed:
1. Appropriate Procedure of disassembly of all pyrotechnic devices to be followed for pretensioner seat belt. The Battery terminal to be removed before disassembly of pretensioner, otherwise there will be error codes registered in Airbag ECU and Airbag ECU will show malfunction.
2. Open Pillar trims and take out Seat belt assembly on bench by carefully disassembly of connector and Lap Pretensioner/ Anchor wire assembly (if equipped). Kindly follow correct safety belt pretensioner handling procedure in case of pretensioner safety belts. Use clean and lint free cloth and hand gloves for cleaning safety belt assembly. Do not use any chemicals and cleaning fluids could damage the Seat belt webbing and other parts.
3. If seat belt movement is sticky due to dust accumulation. Then please contact the dealer for help in cleaning.
4. In case of soiling on the belt, use a mild soap solution consisting of 2 tablespoons of natural soap to 1 liter of lukewarm water.
5. Care to be taken to prevent contact of soap water with Pretensioner .
6. Clean dust accumulated on D-Loop, Webbing and overall assembly by close inspection of D-Loop and Webbing using lint free cloth.
7. After cleaning safety belt they should be dried by lint free dry cloth.
8. After cleaning kindly inspect Webbing movement through D-Loop slot for any sticky movement of webbing .
9. Assemble the safety belt using correct torque. Re-assemble all trim parts.
10. Inspect the Webbing for retraction performance.
Seat Belts - Patients: Persons with serious medical conditions should also wear a seat belt. Consult your doctor for specific recommendations before travel.
Seat Belts - Pregnant Women: Pregnant women must also wear seat belts. Consult your doctor for specific recommendations.
The lap belt should be worn snugly and as low as possible over the hips. The shoulder belt should be worn across your shoulder, but never across the stomach area. When worn properly, the seat belt will protect both the mother and the foetus in an accident or emergency stop.
A pregnant woman should never wear the seat belt across the stomach area. This could lead to serious injuries to the foetus and/or the pregnant mother.
Never wear twisted seat belts. Excessive forces will be transferred from the belt to the wearer, in a collision, resulting in serious personal injury.
Each seat belt is meant for use by one person only. Using one seat belt for more than one person at a time is dangerous. The seat belt will not be able to absorb the impact forces properly leading to serious injuries.
Never wear a belt around a child being carried on the occupant's lap. This could lead to serious injuries.
Seat Belt Usage is Necessary to:
•  Reduce the possibility of being out from your vehicle during an accident.
•  Reduce the possibility of injuries to upper body, lower body and legs during an accident
•  Hold the driver in a position which allows better control of the vehicle
Children who are too large for child restraint systems should always occupy the rear seat and use the vehicle seat belts. The lap portion should be snug fastened on the hips and as low as possible and the shoulder belt should be rout across the child's shoulder, not across neck or face. If you are unable to position the belt across the child's shoulder, the child should be seated in a booster seat. Frequently check the seat belt to be sure it remains snug and in position. A squirming child could cause the seat belt to come out of position.
2.3.2 Seat Belt Configuration
To protect you and your passengers in the event of an accident, it is highly recommended that the seat belts should be used by all occupants inside of your vehicle.
Seat Belt Types with respect to Location
Seat Location
Seat Belt Type
Driver Seat
Seat belt with Retractor Pretensioner & load limiter (RPLL), & Anchor Pretensioner
Co-Driver Seat
Seat belt with Retractor Pretensioner & load limiter (RPLL)
2nd Row LH (40P)
Seat belt with Emergency Lock Retractor (ELR)
2nd Row RH (60P)
Seat belt with Emergency Lock Retractor (ELR) & Lap Seat belt
2nd Row Captain Seat LH / RH
Seat belt with Emergency Lock Retractor (ELR)
3rd Row LH / RH
Seat belt with Emergency Lock Retractor (ELR)
Emergency Locking Retractor (ELR): The Emergency Locking Retractor (ELR) allows the driver seat belt to freely extend and retract with occupant movement, yet locks the belt during a sudden stop or upon impact.
Retractor Pretensioner & load limiter (RPLL): A pretensioner is designed to retract some of the webbing of a seat belt the instant a collision occurs, tightening the seat belt to restrain occupants quickly and reducing the amount they are thrown forward in a moderate or severe frontal crash.
Load limiters help protect occupants from seat belt-inflicted injury. In the event of a crash, the pretensioner restrains the occupant until certain amount of force is applied. At this point the load limiter releases the webbing gradually so as not to exert too much force on the chest of the occupant.
2.3.3 Seat Belt Pretensioner
In the event of a crash being detected, the belt pretensioner locks the seat belt by drawing back the seat belts on the driver’s and passenger’s torso and pelvis to prevent the driver and passenger being thrown forward. The seat belt pretensioner combined with the seat belt and airbag further increases safety.
This vehicle is provided with a anchor pretensioner for driver seat (in the sill board area) and is used to help to protect occupant in the sever crash events .
Its activation through Airbag ECU is signalled by pulling down of the metallic cable and removes slack in in seat belt.
To obtain the highest degree of protection from the action of the pretensioning device, wear the seat belt on shoulder keeping it firmly close to the chest and bottom part of the seat belt on pelvis.
In case of side impact collisions, front air bags are not inflated, but seat belt pretensioners located in the same position with impact direction will be deployed together with side air bag. Deployed seat belt pretensioners cannot be deployed again. Have the deployed seat belt pretensioners replaced by an Authorised dealer.
Operation of pretensioner
When a severe frontal impact occurs, seat belt pretensioners pull back the seat belts immediately to restrain the occupants to their seats.
Operation of load limiter
After frontal collision, the load limiter releases the seat belt to prevent the occupant from being injured due to belt force.
Fastening the seat belt
Even if seat belts are not worn, the air bag will deploy in case of impact, collision triggered. In addition, airbags can protect occupants when the occupants are wearing their seat belts. Airbags may cause injuries to occupants if they do not wear or inappropriately use their seat belts.
•  Before driving, all occupants should fasten their seat belts. If not, the occupants can seriously be injured in a collision or sudden manoeuvring of the vehicle
•  Sometimes you may have to apply strong force to pull the webbing out of the retract
•  Each seat belt should be used by only one occupant at a time
•  Seat belts and airbag’s can significantly minimise possible injury to occupants. But they cannot perfectly protect occupants from fatal collisions or injury
•  Modifications and improper maintenance for the safety systems could cause serious injury. The safety systems including seat belts should be checked and repaired by only a Mahindra Dealer or Mahindra Authorised Service centre
•  An infant or small child should always be restrained in an infant or child restraint
2.3.4 Fastening the Seat Belt (3-Point type)
Adjust the seat as needed, sit up straight and well back in the seat. To fasten your seat belt, pull the webbing out of the retractor and insert the metal tab into the buckle. An audible “click” would be heard when the tab locks into the buckle. Pull up on the shoulder strap to tighten the lap belt across your hips. The seat belt retractor will pull in any slack in the shoulder strap. A slow and easy motion will allow the belt to extend and let you move your body around freely.
Periodically check the seat belt as you ride to be sure it remains snug and in position. If there is a sudden stop or impact, the belt will lock into position. It will also lock (restrict) if you try to lean forward too quickly.
If the driver or co-driver seat belt is not fastened when the ignition is switched ON, the seat belt warning lamp illuminates and chimes beat will turn till seat belt fastened. Refer “Warning Lamps” in the “Instrument Cluster Features” chapter for further details.
2.3.5 Fastening the Seat Belt (2-Point Lap type)
This seat belt is applicable to the second row middle passenger seat. Insert the tongue into the buckle until it snaps. Position the lap belt on the hips as low as possible.
2.3.6 Seat Belt Release (both 3-Point & 2 Point)
To release the belt, press the buckle release button and allow the belt to retract. If the belt does not retract smoothly, pull it out and check for kinks or twists. Then make sure it remains untwisted as it retracts.
Never insert coins, clips, etc. in the buckle as this may prevent from properly latching the tongue and may cause damage to the buckle mechanism, thereby making the seat belt ineffective in an accident, resulting in serious personal injury.
2.3.7 Driver Seat Belt Reminder Indication
The driver seat belt reminder warning symbol lamp will blink in instrument cluster if driver doesn’t wear the seat belt and will be continuous until belt is buckled. Chime will be activated when vehicle travels more than 500 metres or attains 25 Kms/Hrs of speed while vehicle is in motion which will be ON for 95 seconds
2.3.8 Passenger Occupant Detection System (PODS) & Seat Belt Reminder Indication
PODS detects the presence of occupant in the passenger seat.
If Occupant is present on passenger seat and not wearing the seat belt, Seat belt reminder warning symbol lamp will glow on the center fascia switch provided in vehicle instrument panel and will be continuous until the seat belt is buckled. It should be noted that the PODS require a minimum weight hence children may not be detected by PODS. Along with this warning symbol, a Chime in Cluster will be ON for 95 seconds. Do keep in mind that after market seat covers also may deteriorate the detection senor performance, don’t use the non recommended/non authorized seat covers.
Seat belt reminder warning lamp for passenger seat may glow in case of child is present in passenger seat.
Strong advice not to carry children in front seat without child restraint seat. Also do not use adult seat belt which is designed to harness person taller than 140cm Always ensure Passenger Airbag is turn OFF before you carry child on passenger seat.We strongly urge that children should be in middle row using the child seats with the ISO FIX
2.3.9 Seat Belt Height Adjuster
You can adjust the height of the shoulder belt anchor for maximum comfort and safety of both front seats. If the height of the seat belt is too near your neck, you will not be getting the most effective protection.
The shoulder portion of the belt should be adjusted so that it lies across your chest and midway over your shoulder nearest to the door and not your neck.
To adjust the height of the seat belt anchor, lower or raise the height adjuster to an appropriate position while pressing the height adjuster button. Release the button to lock the anchor into position. Try sliding the height adjuster to make sure that it has locked into the position.
Adjust the shoulder belt height sitting well back in the seat. Do not adjust the seat belt height while vehicle is in motion.
2.4 Child Restraint System (CRS)
How to use the ISOFIX Lower Latch Anchor/ISOFIX Rods
1. ISOFIX Marking gjkkllool 2. Latch anchor/ISOFIX rod
•  The ISOFIX lower latch anchors (rods) are located in rear seats bottom position. Their locations are shown in the illustration
•  Insert the child restraint attachments into the ISOFIX lower latch anchors (rods) until it clicks. Refer Child seat installation manual.
•  Do not use the seat belt for installing the ISOFIX child restraint
ISOFIX system is a standardized method of fitting child seats that eliminates the need to use the standard adult Seat belt to secure the seat in the vehicle. This enables a much more secure and positive location with the added benefit of easier and quicker installation.
•  When using the “ISOFIX” lower latch system (rod), all unused vehicle rear seat belt metal latch plates or tabs must be latched securely in their seat belt buckles and the seat belt webbing must be retracted behind the child restraint to prevent the child from reaching and taking hold of un-retracted seat belts. Unlatched metal latch plates or tabs may allow the child to reach the un-retracted seat belts which may result in strangulation and a serious injury or death to the child in the child restraint.
•  Child restraint anchorages are designed to withstand only those loads imposed by correctly-fitted child restraints. Under no circumstances are they to be used for adult seat belts, harnesses or for attaching other items or equipment to the vehicle
How to use the Top Tether/Rear Anchor
There are two top tether rods/rear anchors on the seat base back side of the rear row front facing seats.
1. Remove the headrest from the rear row seat
2. Place the child restraint on the rear row seat
3. Connect the tether connector in child restraint to the top tether rod/ rear anchor. Securely tighten the child restraint by adjusting the webbing of the child restraint system (CRS) tether connector. Follow the clear instructions provide in the CRS manual
•  The top-tether/ rear anchor is the supplemental device to secure the child restraint system after engaging it by the ISOFIX rod/lower latches. Therefore, do not secure the child restraint system only with the seat back anchors. The increased load may cause the hooks or anchors to break, causing serious injury or death.
•  If a child restraint is not properly secured to the vehicle and a child is not properly restrained in the child restraint, the child could be seriously injured or killed in a collision. Always follow the instructions provided by the manufacturer for installation
•  Make sure the latches of the child restraint system are Firmly latched to the ISOFIX rod/lower latches. In this case, you can hear the “click” sound/ latch indications provided on seat.
•  Incorrectly installed child restraint system may cause an unexpected personal injury.
•  Child restraint anchorages are designed to withstand only those loads imposed by correctly fitted child restraints
•  The tether strap may not work properly if attached somewhere other than the correct top tether rod/rear anchor provided on seat back.
•  Don’t put the top tether strap over the head restraint of rear row seat which is not the correct methods and may cause risk.
•  Rock the child restraint to check if it is securely installed. Refer to instructions provided by the manufacturer of the child restraint.
•  Do not install the child restraint of such size if it hinders the operations of front seat which may cause problem to front occupants.

•  Group II & III: Booster seat fitted on the rear seat with seat belt fastened. Always follow the installation procedure and use instructions provided by the manufacturer of the booster seat.
Cautions for ISOFIX Seat usage
•  The anchor provided on rear seat base back is the supplemental device to secure the child restraint system after engaging it by the lower latches. Therefore, do not secure the child restraint system only with the seat back anchors. The increased load may cause the hooks or anchors to break, causing serious injury or death.
•  If a child restraint is not properly secured to the vehicle and a child is not properly restrained in the child restraint, the child could be seriously injured or killed in a collision. Always follow the instructions provided by the manufacturer for installation.
•  Make sure the latches of the child restraint system are latched to the lower latches. In this case, you can hear the “click” sound and color indications.
•  The child restraint seat strap may not work properly if attached somewhere other than the correct seat back anchor provided on the rear seat base back side behind the seat carpet. Follow the instructions provided on the seat back for the details of anchor location.
•  Make sure that the child restraint system is firmly secured by rocking it in different directions.
•  Incorrectly installed child restraint system may cause an unexpected personal injury.
2.5 Supplemental Restraint System (SRS)
The Supplemental Restraint System (SRS) includes airbags, pre-tensioners and ECU. The airbags are designed to provide further protection to the vehicle occupants in addition to the primary protection provided by the seat belts and seat belt pre-tensioners.
The primary components of the system are the sensors which measure the crash severity. In the event of a significant frontal impact, the SRS airbags inflate to work in conjunction with the seat belts and help reduce injuries mainly to the driver's or front passenger's head/chest.
Seat belts are the primary restraint system in the vehicle. An airbag provides supplemental protection in addition to the seat belts.
All occupants, including the driver, should always wear their seat belts irrespective of presence of airbag to minimise the risk of severe injury in the event of a crash.
Airbags are more effective in reducing injuries when the seat belts are worn.
Your vehicle has the following airbags:
A: Knee airbag for the driver (if equipped)
B: Front Passenger Airbag
C: Driver Airbag
D:Two side (seat) impact airbags (if equipped)
E: Two curtain airbags (if equipped)
2.5.1 Driver and Front Passenger Airbag
Your vehicle is equipped with a Supplemental Restraint System (Airbag) and lap/shoulder belts at both the driver and front passenger seating positions. The indications of the system's presence are the letters “SRS AIRBAG” embossed on the airbag pad cover in the steering wheel and the passenger's side front panel pad above the glove box.
The SRS is designed to deploy the front airbag only when an impact is sufficiently severe and when the impact angle is less than ± 30° from the forward longitudinal axis of the vehicle.
Driver Airbag
Front Passenger Airbag
Front airbag are not intended to deploy in side-impact, rear impact or rollover crashes. In addition, front airbag will not deploy in frontal crashes which are below the prescribed deployment threshold where risk of serious injuries is low.
Do not place any objects over the airbag or between the airbag and yourself. It cause injuries.
2.5.2 Knee Airbag (If equipped)
The driver’s knee airbag is located on the dashboard under the steering wheel
If the driver’s posture is improper while driving, the knee air bag might not protect the driver’s knee area when the airbag deployed.
2.5.3 Side Impact Airbag (If equipped)
Your vehicle is equipped with side impact airbag in both the front seats. The purpose of the airbag is to provide the vehicle's driver and/or the front passenger with additional protection during side impacts or collisions.
The side impact airbags are designed to deploy only during certain side-impact collisions, depending on the crash severity, angle, speed and point of impact. To minimise the risk of severe injury in the event of a crash, every passenger must always wear their seat belt (see the chapter on Seat Belts in this manual). The airbags inflate very quickly with great force. Do not position any part of your body too close to airbag, you or especially children could be seriously injured/killed by a deploying airbag.
•  In the case of a side collision, the curtain airbag may be deployed together with the relevant side airbag on the side the collision occurs
•  The side impact airbag is supplementary to the seat belt systems and is not a substitute for them. Therefore, your seat belts must be worn at all times while the vehicle is in motion. The airbags deploy only in certain side impact conditions severe enough to cause significant injury to the vehicle occupants
•  For best protection from the side impact airbag system and to avoid being injured by the deploying side impact airbag, all seat occupants should sit in an upright position with the seat belt properly fastened. The driver's hands should be placed on the steering wheel at the 9:00 and 3:00 positions. The passengers arms and hands should be placed on their laps
•  Do not use any accessory seat covers. Use of seat covers could reduce or prevent the effectiveness of the system
•  Do not install any accessories on the side or near the side impact airbag
•  Do not place any objects over the airbag or between the air bag and yourself
•  Do not place any objects (an umbrella, bag, etc.) between the door and the seat. Such objects may become dangerous projectiles and cause injury if the supplementary side impact airbag inflates
Do not cover the front seats with anything. It hinders the air bag inflation
An airbag is not designed to deploy in every type of crash. Depending on the type of accident or impact, the front airbags independently deploy thereby protecting the occupants. It is not necessary that ALL the airbags deploy during an accident.
2.5.4 Side Curtain Airbag (If equipped)
The side curtain air bags are contained between right above the front and rear doors and the end of the vehicle roof.
The Side Curtain air bags are located along sides of the roof rails on the A & B pillars. They are designed to help protect the heads of the front seat occupants and the rear outboard seat occupants in certain side impact collisions. The curtain airbag are designed to deploy depending on the crash severity, angle, speed and impact. The curtain airbag are not designed to deploy in all side impact situations, collisions from the front or rear of the vehicle or in rollover situations.
•  In the case of a side collision, the side airbag may be deployed together with the relevant curtain airbag on the side the collision occurs
•  In order for side and curtain airbag to provide the best protection, both front seat occupants and outboard rear occupants should sit in an upright position with the seat belts properly fastened. Importantly, children should sit in a proper child restraint system in the rear seat
•  When children are seated in the rear outboard seats, they must be seated in the proper child restraint system. Make sure to position the child restraint system as far away from the door side as possible, and secure the child restraint system in a locked position
•  Do not allow the passengers to lean their heads or bodies onto doors or place objects between the doors and passengers when they are seated on seats equipped with side and/or curtain airbag
2.5.5 Passenger Airbag Activation/Deactivation
The passenger air bag activation/deactivation option is available in instrument cluster menu.
Select Passenger Airbag Activation/Deactivation option in SETTINGS menu to activate/deactivate (not inflatable) the front passenger airbag as per below reference images
If your select Airbag ON/OFF the following indicator will appear.
Passenger Airbag OFF Indicator
This Warning indicator glows on center fascia switch on IP when passenger airbag “OFF” position.
Passenger Airbag ON Indicator
This Warning indicator symbol glows on center fascia switch on IP when selecting the passenger airbag “ON” option to enable the passenger airbag.
2.5.6 Airbag System Malfunction Lamp
Airbags do not require any regular maintenance or service. The airbag system malfunction lamp illuminates when the ignition is ON, and it turns OFF after about two seconds as self check confirming normal operations of airbag system and malfunction lamp.
This lamp monitors airbag sensor assembly, airbag sensors, indicator lamp, seat belt pre-tensioner assemblies, inflators, interconnecting wiring and power sources.
If either of the following conditions occur, there is a malfunction of the airbags or seat belt pre-tensioner. Immediately contact your Mahindra Authorised Dealer.
•  The lamp does not glow when the ignition is switched ON or glows beyond six (6) seconds after switching the ignition ON
•  The lamp comes ON at any other time, even briefly
•  The lamp comes ON intermittently
Never make any modifications to your vehicle which could affect the performance of airbag system. In particular, changes to the vehicle frame, bumpers, bull bar, front fenders, ride height, suspension, seat belts, interior trim, seats or steering wheel (especially covers, pads or other trim), could prevent proper deployment of the airbag. If you need to make any modifications to accommodate any disability you may have, please contact your Mahindra Authorised Dealer..
Never try to open or strike the airbag cover. If the airbag cover is cracked or damaged in any way, the airbag may not function as intended. Take the vehicle to an Mahindra Authorised Dealer.
Even if the airbags do not deploy during an accident, take your vehicle to an Mahindra Authorised Dealer for a thorough inspection of the airbag and seat belt systems, no matter how minor the accident. The airbag system could have been damaged, and may not work as intended in the future, resulting in serious injury.
2.5.7 Airbag Inflation/Deployment
The airbag sensors constantly monitor the forward deceleration of the vehicle. If an impact results in a forward deceleration beyond the designed threshold level, the system triggers the airbag inflators. This initiates a chemical reaction which quickly fills the airbags with non-toxic gas.
Upon deployment, tear seams moulded directly into the pad covers separate under pressure from the expansion of the airbags. Further opening of the covers allows full inflation of the airbags. A fully inflated airbag, in combination with a properly worn seat belt, slows the driver's or the passenger's forward motion, reducing the risk of head and chest injury.
After complete inflation, the airbag immediately starts deflating, enabling the driver to maintain forward visibility and the ability to manoeuvre or operate other controls.
Deployment of the airbags happen in a milliseconds, producing a loud noise releasing a ‘white smoke’ and residue along with a non-toxic gas. This does not indicate a fire. This smoke may remain inside the vehicle for some time, and may cause some minor irritation to the eyes, skin or breathing. Be sure to wash off any residue with soap and water as soon as possible to prevent any potential skin irritation. Exit the vehicle as soon as possible after the accident.
Airbag deployment may cause windshield to break.
•  Do not modify, remove, strike or open the seat belt pre-tensioner assemblies, airbag sensor or surrounding area or wiring. Failure to follow these instructions may prevent them from activating correctly, cause sudden operation of the system or disable the system, which could result in serious injury
•  Parts of the airbag module (steering wheel hub, airbag cover and inflator) may be hot for several minutes after deployment. The airbags inflate only once
•  Do not cover the steering wheel, instrument panel, seats with any object (e.g. dash panel covers, seat covers) which may prevent the airbags from inflating properly
•  The airbags inflate with considerable force. While the system is designed to reduce serious injuries, primarily to the head and chest, it may also cause other, less severe injuries to the face, chest, arms and hands. These are usually in the nature of minor burns or abrasions and swelling, but the force of a deploying airbag can also cause more serious injuries, especially if an occupant's hands, arms, chest or head is in close proximity to the airbag module at the time of deployment. Sit straight and well back into the seat. Move your seat as far back as practical to allow room for airbag inflation, while still allowing you to properly operate/drive the vehicle
The front passenger should never sit on the edge of the seat, stand near the glove compartment, rest feet or other parts of the body on the dashboard when the vehicle is moving.
The driver or front passenger who is too close to the steering wheel or dashboard can be seriously injured during airbag deployment.
•  The driver must sit as far back as possible from the steering wheel while still maintaining control of the vehicle
•  The front passenger must sit as far back as possible from the dashboard
•  Sitting improperly or out of position can cause occupants to be shifted too close to a deploying airbag, strike the interior structure or be thrown from the vehicle resulting in serious injury
•  Always sit upright with the seat back in an upright position, on the seat cushion centre with your seat belt on, legs comfortably extended and your feet on the floor
•  All vehicle occupants must be properly restrained using the seat belts
•  All infants and children must be placed in the rear seat of the vehicle in a child restraint seat and be properly restrained by seat belts
•  Front airbags can injure occupants who are improperly positioned in the front seats
•  Even with airbags, improperly belted and un-belted occupants can be severely injured when the airbag inflates. Always follow the precautions about seat belts, airbags and occupant safety contained in this manual
•  Do not modify the front seats. Modification of the front seats could interfere with the operation of the supplemental restraint system or side impact airbags
•  Do not place items under the front seats. Placing items under the front seats could interfere with the operation of the supplemental restraint system sensing components and wiring harnesses
2.5.8 Child Restraint and Airbag
Do not use a rearward facing child restraint on a seat protected by an airbag in front of it
In addition, do not place front-facing child restraints in the front passenger’s seat either. If the front passenger airbag inflates, it could cause serious or fatal injuries to the child.
This is indicated also on stickers that are located at the following position. On the front passenger’s sun visor
Extreme Hazard! Do not use a rear-facing child restraint on a seat protected by an airbag in front of it!
Never put a child restraint in the front passenger’s seat. If the front passenger airbag inflates, it can cause serious or fatal injuries.
Never hold an infant or child on your lap. The infant or child could be seriously injured in the event of a crash. All infants and children should be properly restrained in appropriate child safety seats or seat belts in the rear seat.
Instal the child restraint system on the rear outboard seats, and securely lock the child restraint system in position with the help of ISOFIX.
Always Buckle Children (ABC) in the back seat. It is the safest place for children of any age to ride.
2.5.9 Airbag Deployment
The images shown in this section are for illustrative purpose only. They may not look like your model/variant or vehicle.
Front Airbag
Front airbag are designed to inflate in a frontal collision depending on the intensity, speed or angles of impact of the front collision.
2.5.10  Airbag Non-deployment
Impacts below a pre-determined threshold level may not cause the airbag to deploy in the following cases:
Collision with Utility Poles or Trees :
Airbags may not inflate if the vehicle collides with objects such as utility poles or trees, where the point of impact is concentrated to one area and the full force of the impact is not delivered to the sensors.
Frontal Impact :
Frontal impact beyond 30º range from head-on to the vehicle.
Frontal Side Swipe Impact:
Frontal offset impact to the vehicle may not provide the deceleration force necessary for airbag deployment.
In an angled collision, the force of impact may direct the occupants in a direction where the airbags would not be able to provide any additional benefit, and thus the sensors may not deploy any airbags.
Under-ride Situations :
Running under a truck's tailgate may not provide the decelerations necessary for airbag deployment.
Airbags will not inflate in this “under-ride” situation where deceleration forces that are detected by sensors are significantly low.
Rear-end Collisions :
Frontal airbags are not designed to inflate in rear collisions, where occupants are moved backward away from the airbags by the force of the impact. In this case, inflated airbags would not be able to provide any additional benefit.
Potholes or Stepped Surfaces :
Driving into a big pothole, stepped surface or hitting the far side of a hole/incline will not inflate the airbag.
Airbags will not inflate in rollover accidents where airbag deployment would not provide protection to the occupants. However, side impact and curtain airbags may inflate only when severe side impact causes rollover.
2.5.11 Airbag Service
Airbag Replacement: Self-servicing or tampering with the airbag system is dangerous. An airbag could accidentally deploy causing serious injuries, or will not deploy when there is a need. Always take your vehicle to an Mahindra Authorised Dealer for inspection and repairs.
Removing SRS Related Parts: We do not recommend removing the instrument panel, steering wheel, seats or airbag related parts or sensors by any individual or garages which are not recommended. Airbags could accidentally activate and cause serious injuries, or they may not deploy when there is a need. Visit an Mahindra Authorised Dealer if these parts must be removed.
Airbag Disposal: Improper disposal of an airbag or a vehicle with live airbags can be extremely dangerous. Approach an Mahindra Authorised Dealer to do these jobs.
Airbag Repair: If the front airbag cover or instrument panel airbag cover shows signs of damage or having been removed, the vehicle should be towed to the nearest Mahindra Authorised Dealer for repair. Do not attempt to self repair or reinstall the cover.
Airbag Maintenance: For cleaning the airbag covers/areas, use only a soft dry cloth or one which has been moistened with plain water. Solvents or cleaners could adversely affect the airbag covers and proper deployment of the system.

Secondary level: Buzzer will trigger periodic chime when the vehicle speed reaches 120 kmph and chime will continue playing until vehicle speed is reduced to 114 kmph. Below this speed primary level chime will be triggered and will continue till 76 kmph.
3.1.2 Tachometer
High Low
The tachometer indicates engine speed in thousands of RPM (revolutions per minute). Each division is 1000 RPM. Operating the engine at very high RPM may lead to excessive engine wear and low fuel economy. Maintain steady engine speed below 2500 RPM and do not accelerate or decelerate abruptly.
Do not over-accelerate the engine during idling, this can cause severe engine damage and would be treated as abuse of the engine which is not covered by warranty.
Tacho red band range:
Gasoline 5500 - 7000 rpm
Diesel 5000 - 7000 rpm
Diesel (High Variant): Tacho red band shall change based on engine parameters
3.1.3 Fuel Level Gauge
High Low
The fuel level gauge functions only when the ignition is switched ON. It gives the status of the fuel level in the fuel tank. F indicates the tank is full (60 +/- 2 liters), E indicates the tank is empty.
When the fuel level reaches the reserve, the last bar will be displayed and low fuel telltale will be ON (approx 12 liters). when the fuel tank is completely empty, last bar goes off from display and low fuel telltale will be blinking . The amount of fuel required to fill the tank up may be less than the specified tank capacity, as a small amount of reserve fuel always remains in the tank.
On inclines or curves, due to the movement of fuel in the tank, the fuel level may fluctuate or the last bar may flash earlier than usual. Always check the fuel level when the vehicle is on level road. If the last bar is still off and telltale is blinking even after filling sufficient fuel, contact your Mahindra Authorised Dealer as soon as possible.
When all the bars in the display starts blinking/flashing, contact the nearest Mahindra Authorised Dealer at the earliest.
It is highly recommended to start the fueling at ignition OFF condition and turn on the ignition only when fueling is finished to get correct fuel level.
IGN ON fuel filling may lead to inconsistency and can cause for DTE fluctuation.
3.1.4 Temperature Gauge
The engine coolant temperature gauge functions only when the ignition is switched ON. It indicates the instantaneous engine coolant temperature. The coolant temperature varies with changes in weather, load on engine and driving pattern.
If the gauge moves beyond the normal operating range toward “H” mark. it indicates the engine overheating that may damage the engine. Allow engine to cool. In such situations switch OFF the AC and observe any improvements in the temperature gauge. If not, stop the vehicle and allow the engine to cool down. Check the coolant level in the coolant reservoir and top-up if required. If the engine is still overheating, contact your nearest Mahindra Authorised Dealer.
High Low
Never remove the Degassing tank cap when the engine is hot. The engine coolant is under pressure and could splash on to skin/eyes causing severe burns. Wait for the engine to cool down before adding coolant to the reservoir.
Do not continue driving the vehicle with an overheated engine. This will lead to damage of engine components and engine seizure.
