Driving and operating



In the event of a fault, a message is

displayed in the Colour Info Display,

accompanied by an acoustic signal.
In the event of a fault in the power

steering, H illuminates and a

message is displayed in the Driver

Information Centre.

9 Warning

Under certain circumstances,

various reflective surfaces on

objects or clothing as well as

external noise sources may cause

the system to fail to detect

Special attention must be paid to

low obstacles which can damage

the lower part of the bumper.


Performance of the system can be

reduced when sensors are

covered, e.g. by ice or snow.

Performance of the parking assist

system can be reduced due to

heavy loading.
Special conditions apply if there

are taller vehicles in the vicinity

(e.g. off-road vehicles, mini vans,

vans). Object identification and

correct distance indication in the

upper part of these vehicles

cannot be guaranteed.
Objects with a very small reflection

cross-section, e.g. objects of

narrow size or soft materials, may

not be detected by the system.
Parking assist systems do not

detect objects outside the

detection range.


It is possible that the sensor detects

a non-existing object caused by

echo disturbance from external

acoustic noise or mechanical

misalignments (sporadic false

warnings may occur).

Make sure that the front number

plate is properly mounted (not bent

and no gaps to the bumper on the left

or right side) and the sensors are

firmly in place.
Advanced parking assist system

may not respond to changes in the

available parking space after

initiating a parking manoeuvre. The

system may recognize an entry, a

gateway, a courtyard or even a

crossing as a parking slot. After

selecting reverse gear the system

will start a parking manoeuvre. Take

care regarding the availability of the

suggested parking slot.
Surface irregularities, e.g. on

construction zones, are not detected

by the system. The driver accepts


Side blind spot alert

The Side blind spot alert system

detects and reports objects on either

side of the vehicle, within a specified

"blind spot" zone. The system

Lane departure warning

The lane departure warning system

observes the lane markings between

which the vehicle is driving via a front

camera loacted at the top of the

windscreen. The system detects lane

changes and warns the driver in the

event of an unintended lane change

via visual and acoustic signals.
Criteria for the detection of an

unintended lane change are:

● No operation of turn signals.
● No brake pedal operation.
● No active accelerator operation

or speeding-up.

9 Warning

This system is a driving aid that

cannot, in any circumstances,

replace the need for vigilance on

● Driving on road edges.
● Driving on roads with poor lane


● Sudden lighting changes.

The system can not operate when no

lane marking is detected.

Lane keep assist

Lane keep assist helps to avoid

crashes due to unintentional lane

departures. The front camera

observes the lane markings between

which the vehicle is driving. If the

vehicle approaches a lane marking,

the steering wheel is gently turned to

position the vehicle back into the lane.

Turn steering wheel in same

direction, if system steers not

sufficient. Turn steering wheel gently

into opposite direction, if lane change

is intended.
When crossing a lane marking

significantly, lane keep assist starts a

visual and acoustic warning.

Unintended lane departure is


● without using turn signal
● without braking
● without acceleration
● without active steering.


The system is switched off during

detection of ambiguous lane

markings, e.g. in construction areas.

The system may be switched off if it

detects lanes which are too narrow,

too wide or too curved.




Driving and operating

After ignition is switched on, lane

keep assist is activated. If the system

is activated, the LED in the button Ó

is not illuminated . To activate the

system when the system is

deactivated, press Ó.
When the control indicator a in the

instrument cluster illuminates green,

the system is ready to assist.
The system is operational at vehicle

speeds between 65 km/h and

180 km/h and if lane markings are

available. The driver must hold the

wheel with both hands. The change of

trajectory is not accompanied by

operation of the direction indicators.

The ESC system must be activated.
The system makes the correction to

the trajectory necessary to return the

vehicle to its initial path if it identifies

a risk of the vehicle involuntarily

crossing one of the lane markings

detected. The driver will then notice a

turning movement of the steering


The control indicator a flashes

Driver Information Centre, the line of

the corrected side will be displayed in

If the driver wishes to maintain the

trajectory of the vehicle, he can

prevent the correction by keeping a

firm grip on the wheel (during an

avoiding manoeuvre, for example).

The correction is interrupted if the

direction indicators are operated.
While the direction indicators are on

and for a few seconds after switching

them off, the system considers that

any change of trajectory is voluntary

and no correction is triggered during

this period.
If the system detects that the driver is

not holding the wheel firmly enough

during an automatic correction of

trajectory, it interrupts the correction.

An alert is triggered to encourage the

driver to take back control of the



The system is deactivated by

pressing Ó during a few seconds; the

Driving and operating


Switch off the system if the system is

disturbed by tar marks, shadows,

road cracks, temporary or

construction lane markings, or other

road imperfections.

9 Warning

Always keep your attention on the

road and maintain proper vehicle

position within the lane, otherwise

vehicle damage, injury or death

could occur.
Lane keep assist does not

continuously steer the vehicle.
The system may not keep the

vehicle in the lane or give an alert,

even if a lane marking is detected.
The steering of the lane keep

assist may not be sufficient to

avoid a lane departure.
The system may not detect hands-

off driving due to external

influences (road condition and

surface, weather etc). The driver

has full responsibility to control the

vehicle and is always required to

keep the hands on the steering

wheel while driving.
Using the system while towing a

trailer or on slippery roads could

cause loss of control of the vehicle

and a crash. Switch the system off.

Driver alert

The driver alert system monitores the

driving time and the vigilance of the

driver. Monitoring the vigilance of the

driver is based on the trajectory

variations of the vehicle compared to

the lane markings.
The system includes a driving time

alert combined with driver drowsiness


9 Warning

The system cannot replace the

need for vigilance on the part of

the driver. It is recommended that

you take a break as soon as you

feel tired or at least every two

hours. Do not take the wheel if you

are tired.

Activation or Deactivation

The system can be activated or

deactivated in the vehicle

personalisation 3 106
The state of the system stays in

Driving time alert

The driver gets notified by a pop-up

reminder symbol € in the Driver

Information Centre simultaneously

with a acoustic alert if the driver has

not taken a break after two hours of

driving at a speed above 65 km/h. The

alert is repeated hourly until the

vehicle is stopped, no matter how

vehicle speed evolves.
The counting of driving time alert is

reset when the ignition has been

switched off for a few minutes.

Driver drowsiness detection

The system monitors the driver's level

of vigilance. A camera at the top of the

windscreen detects variations in

trajectory compared to the lane



Driving and operating

markings. This system is particularly

suited to fast roads (speed higher

than 65 km/h).
If the trajectory of the vehicle

suggests a certain level of

drowsiness or inattention by the

driver, the system triggers the first

level of alert. The driver is notified by

a message and an audible signal is

After three first level alerts, the

system triggers a new alert with a

message, accompanied by a more

pronounced audible signal.
In certain driving conditions (poor

road surface or strong winds), the

system may give alerts independent

of the driver's level of vigilance.
The driver drowsiness detection is

reinitialised when the ignition has

been switched off for a few minutes or

the speed remains below 65 km/h for

a few minutes.

System limitations

In the following situations, the system

may not operate properly or even not

operate at all:

● Poor visibility caused by

inadequate lighting of the

roadway, falling snow, heavy

rain, dense fog etc.

● Dazzle caused by headlamps of

an oncoming vehicles, low sun,

reflections on damp roads,

leaving a tunnel, alternating

shade and light etc.

● Windscreen area in front of the

camera covered by dirt, snow,

stickers etc.

● No lane markings detected or

multiple lane markings due to


● Close vehicles ahead
● Winding roads or narrow roads


Fuel for petrol engines

Only use unleaded fuel that complies

with European standard EN 228 or

E DIN 51626-1 or equivalent.
The engine is capable of running with

fuel that contains up to 10% ethanol

(e.g. named E10).
Use fuel with the recommended

octane rating. A lower octane rating

can reduce engine power and torque

and slightly increases fuel



Do not use fuel or fuel additives

that contain metallic compounds

such as manganese-based

additives. This may cause engine



Driving and operating



Use of fuel that does not comply to

EN 228 or E DIN 51626-1 or

equivalent can lead to deposits or

engine damage.


Use of fuel with a lower octane

rating than the lowest possible

rating could lead to uncontrolled

combustion and engine damage.

The engine specific requirements

regarding octane rating are given in

the engine data overview 3 245. A

country-specific label at the fuel filler

flap can supersede the requirement.

Fuel additives outside Europe

Fuel should contain detergent

additives that help prevent engine

and fuel system deposits from

forming. Clean fuel injectors and

intake valves will allow the emission

control system to work properly.

Some fuel does not contain sufficient

quantities of additive to keep fuel

injectors and intake valves clean.
To make up for this lack of

detergency, add Fuel System

Treatment PLUS to the fuel tank at

every engine oil change or every

10,000 km, whichever occurs first. It

is available at your workshop.
Fuels containing oxygenates such as

ethers and ethanol, as well as

reformulated fuel, are available in

some cities. If these fuels comply with

the previously described

specification, then they are

acceptable to use. However, E85

(85% ethanol) and other fuels

containing more than 15% ethanol

must be used only in FlexFuel



Do not use fuel containing

methanol. It can corrode metal

parts in the fuel system and also

damage plastic and rubber parts.

This damage would not be

covered by the vehicle warranty.

Some fuels, mainly high octane

racing fuels, can contain an octane

enhancing additive called

methylcyclopentadienyl manganese

tricarbonyl (MMT). Do not use fuels or

fuel additives with MMT as they can

reduce spark plug life and affect

emission control system

performance. The malfunction

indicator light Z may turn on 3 96. If

this occurs, seek the assistance of a


Fuel for diesel engines

Only use diesel fuel that complies

with EN 590.
In countries outside the European

Union use Euro-Diesel fuel with a

sulfur concentration below 50 ppm.


Use of fuel that does not comply to

EN 590 or similar can lead to

engine powerloss, increased wear

or engine damage.



Driving and operating

Do not use marine diesel oils, heating

oils, Aquazole and similar diesel-

water emulsions. Diesel fuels must

not be diluted with fuels for petrol


Low temperature operation

At temperatures below 0° C, some

diesel products with biodiesel blends

may clog, freeze or gel, which may

affect the fuel supply system. Starting

and engine operation may not work

properly. Make sure to fill winter

grade diesel fuel at ambient

temperatures below 0°C.
Arctic grade diesel fuel can be used

in extreme cold temperatures below

-20° C. Using this fuel grade in warm

or hot climates is not recommended

and may cause engine stalling, poor

starting or damage on the fuel

injection system.


9 Danger

Before refuelling, switch off

ignition and any external heaters

with combustion chambers.
Follow the operating and safety

instructions of the filling station

when refuelling.

9 Danger
