Seat Arona

In "rare situations", such as a quick lane change when five passengers are on board, the rear centre seatbelt can unbuckle the rear left seatbelt, Volkswagen said.

Frankfurt am Main - German auto maker Volkswagen (VW) said on Friday that it would recall 410,000 cars from its own brand and Spanish subsidiary Seat over faulty seat belts, warning customers not to use the middle seat in the meantime. The seat belt lock is said to be unlocked during sudden lane changing and high-speed cornering.

"At Volkswagen, safety remains a main priority and we immediately reacted to solve the issue".

"The brand advises its customers not to use the middle seat of the new Polo until the auto [is] equipped with the redesigned belt lock fixture", for which it is awaiting final regulatory approval.

The new-gen Polo was introduced in 2017 and the overall design is inspired by the Golf. He clarified that, with the exception of this problem with the belts, they can continue to drive their vehicles safely. But the overall shape has been retained from previous model.
