Third generation SL (20102016) / Kia Sportage SL Owners Manual / Safety features of your vehicle / Air bag - advanced supplemental restraint system / How does the air bag system operate / Do not install a child restraint on the front passengers seat.

Never place a rear-facing child restraint in the front passengers seat. If the air bag deploys, it would impact the rear-facing child restraint, causing serious or fatal injury.

In addition, do not place front-facing child restraints in the front passengers seat either. If the front passenger air bag inflates, it could cause serious or fatal injuries to the child.

When children are seated in the rear outboard seats of a vehicle equipped with side and/or curtain air bags, install the child restraint system as far away from the door side as possible. Inflation of the side and/or curtain air bags could impact the child.
