Driving and operating



It is not advisable to drive with the

hand resting on the selector lever.

Stop-start system 3 127.

Drive systems

All-wheel drive

The All-Wheel Drive (AWD) system

enhances driving characteristics and

stability, and helps to achieve the best

possible driveability regardless of

ground surface. The system is always

active and cannot be deactivated.
The torque is distributed steplessly

between the wheels of the front and

rear axle, depending on the driving

conditions. Additionally the torque

between the rear wheels is distributed

depending on the surface.
For optimum system performance,

the vehicle's tyres should not have

varying degrees of wear.
When using a temporary spare

wheel, the AWD system is

automatically disabled.
The AWD system will also be

temporarily disabled to protect the

system from overheating if there is

excessive wheel spin. When the

system cools down, AWD will be


The deactivation of the AWD system

will be indicated by a message on the

Driver Information Centre.
If a service message or warning

code S73 is displayed on the Driver

Information Centre, there is a

malfunction in the AWD system. Seek

the assistance of a workshop.
Vehicle messages 3 94, Towing the

vehicle 3 200.



Driving and operating


The brake system comprises two

independent brake circuits.
If a brake circuit fails, the vehicle can

still be braked using the other brake

circuit. However, braking effect is

achieved only when the brake pedal

is depressed firmly. Considerably

more force is needed for this. The

braking distance is extended. Seek

the assistance of a workshop before

continuing the journey.
When the engine is not running, the

support of the brake servo unit

disappears once the brake pedal has

been depressed once or twice.

Braking effect is not reduced, but

braking requires significantly greater

force. It is especially important to bear

this in mind when being towed.
Control indicator R 3 85.

Antilock brake system

Antilock brake system (ABS)

prevents the wheels from locking.

ABS starts to regulate brake pressure

as soon as a wheel shows a tendency

to lock. The vehicle remains

steerable, even during hard braking.
ABS control is made apparent

through a pulse in the brake pedal

and the noise of the regulation

For optimum braking, keep the brake

pedal fully depressed throughout the

braking process, despite the fact that

the pedal is pulsating. Do not reduce

the pressure on the pedal.
After starting-off the system performs

a self-test which may be audible.
Control indicator u 3 85.

Adaptive brake light

During full braking, all three brake

lights flash for the duration of ABS



9 Warning

If there is a fault in the ABS, the

wheels may be liable to lock due

to braking that is heavier than

normal. The advantages of ABS

are no longer available. During

hard braking, the vehicle can no

longer be steered and may


Have the cause of the fault remedied

by a workshop.

Parking brake


Driving and operating


9 Warning

Always apply parking brake firmly

without operating the release

button, and apply as firmly as

possible on a downhill or uphill

To release the parking brake, pull

the lever up slightly, press the

release button and fully lower the

To reduce the operating forces of

the parking brake, depress the

brake pedal at the same time.

Control indicator R 3 85.

Brake assist

If the brake pedal is depressed

quickly and forcefully, maximum

brake force is automatically applied

(full braking).
Maintain steady pressure on the

brake pedal for as long as full braking

is required. Maximum brake force is

automatically reduced when the

brake pedal is released.

Hill start assist

The system helps prevent unintended

movement when driving away on

When releasing the brake pedal after

stopping on an incline, the brakes

remain on for a further two seconds.

The brakes release automatically as

soon as the vehicle begins to

The hill start assist is not active during

an Autostop.
Stop-start system 3 127.

Ride control systems

Traction Control system

The Traction Control system (TC) is a

component of the Electronic Stability

Control (ESC) 3 138.
TC improves driving stability when

necessary, regardless of the type of

road surface or tyre grip, by

preventing the drive wheels from

As soon as the drive wheels starts to

spin, engine output is reduced and

the wheel spinning the most is braked

individually. This considerably

improves the driving stability of the

vehicle on slippery road surfaces.
TC is operational after each engine

system is not operational.
Have the cause of the fault remedied

by a workshop.

Descent control system

The Descent control system (DCS)

allows the vehicle to travel at a low

speed without depressing the brake

pedaol. The vehicle will automatically

decelerate to a low speed and remain

at that speed when the system is

activated. Some noise or vibration

from the brake system may be

apparent when the system is active.


Use only when descending steep

grades while driving off-road. Do

not use when driving on normal

road surfaces. Unnecessary

usage of the DCS function, such

as while driving on normal roads,

may damage the brake system

and the ESC function.
