The power seat is operable with the ignition OFF.

Therefore, children should never be left unattended in the vehicle.

CAUTION

  • The power seat is driven by an electric motor. Stop operating once the adjustment is completed. Excessive operation may damage the electrical equipment.
  • When in operation, the power seat consumes a large amount of electrical power. To prevent unnecessary charging system drain, dont adjust the power seat longer than necessary while the engine is not running.

Hyundai Veloster: Front seat adjustment. Headrest

Headrest

The driver's and front passenger's seats are equipped with a headrest for the occupant's safety and comfort. The headrest not only provides comfort for the driver and front passenger, but also helps to protect the head and neck in the event of a collision.

WARNING

  • For maximum effectiveness in case of an accident, the headrest should be adjusted so the middle of the headrest is at the same height of the center of gravity of an occupant's head. Generally, the center of gravity of most people's head is similar with the height of the top of their eyes. Also, adjust the headrest as close to your head as possible. For this reason, the use of a cushion that holds the body away from the seatback is not recommended.
  • Do not operate the vehicle with the headrests removed as severe injury to the occupants may occur in the event of an accident. Headrests may provide protection against neck injuries when properly adjusted.
  • Do not adjust the headrest position of the drivers seat while the vehicle is in motion.
