The best way to find out is to consult the user's manual. Look for the lift pads. Do not just aim your jack anywhere underneath the car, because it can damage the car's sub-frame.

Always use a jack stand before going underneath the car. Make sure the jack stands are placed in the most sturdy part of the under frame.
