R (Reverse)

This position is for backing the vehicle.

To shift from the N to R position, stop the vehicle completely then move the lever to the R position.

When the ignition switch has been turned to the LOCK position, movement of the select lever from the N position to the R position is possible for a limited time period by depressing the brake pedal, and then it becomes impossible. For details, refer to Shift lock function.
