Abstract
(EN)

The invention relates to a motor vehicle with rear seats (3), the seat bench (5) and backrests (6) of which may be placed in a first position in which passengers sit in the direction of travel and into a second position in which the load area of the luggage compartment (4) is increased. The seat bench (5) and the backrests (6) may each be pivoted about a horizontal pivot axis (7, 7′) for adjustment from the first to the second position, whereby locking devices (10) are provided on at least the backrests (6), which fix the backrests (6) to the position when locked. According to the invention, a controller (13) is provided which forcibly couples the locking devices (10) for the backrests (6) to the position of the seat bench (5), such that the backrests (6) can only be adjusted from the first position to the second position thereof, when the seat bench (5) is in the second position thereof.
