Clearing of traffic signs

There are different scenarios that

lead to clearing the currently

displayed traffic signs. After clearing,

the “Default Sign” is displayed in the

Driver Information Centre.



Driving and operating

Reasons for signs being cleared:

● A predefined distance was driven

or time has elapsed (differs for

each sign type)

● Vehicle drives through a turn
● The speed becomes slower than

52 km/h (city entry detection)


The traffic sign assistant system may

not operate correctly if:

● The area of the windscreen,

where the front camera is

located, is not clean or affected

by foreign items, e.g. stickers.

● Traffic signs are completely or

partially covered or difficult to


● There are adverse environmental

conditions, e.g. heavy rain, snow,

direct sunlight or shadows.

● Traffic signs are incorrectly

mounted or damaged.

● Traffic signs do not comply with

the Vienna Convention on traffic



The system is intended to help the

driver within a defined speed

range to discern certain traffic

signs. Do not ignore traffic signs

which are not displayed by the

The system does not discern any

other than the conventional traffic

signs that might give or end a

speed limit.
Do not let this special feature

tempt you into taking risks when

Always adapt speed to the road

The driver assistance systems do

not relieve the driver from full

responsibility for vehicle


Lane departure warning

The lane departure warning system

observes the lane markings between

which the vehicle is driving via a front

camera. 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


● no active steering

If the driver is active, no warning will

be issued.



Driving and operating


The lane departure warning system is

activated by pressing ). The

illuminated LED in the button

indicates that the system is switched


When the control indicator ) in the

instrument cluster illuminates green,

the system is ready to operate.
The system is only operable at

vehicle speeds above 56 km/h and if

lane markings are available.
When the system recognises an

unintended lane change, the control

indicator ) changes to yellow and

flashes. Simultaneously a chime

sound is activated.


The system is deactivated by

pressing ), the LED in the button

At speeds below 56 km/h the system

is inoperable.


The lane departure warning system

may not operate properly when:

● the windscreen is not clean
● there are adverse environmental

conditions like heavy rain, snow,

direct sunlight or shadows

The system can not operate when no

lane marking is detected.


Fuel for petrol engines

Only use unleaded fuel that complies

with European standard EN 228 or

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




Driving and operating


Do not use fuel or fuel additives

that contain metallic compounds

such as manganese-based

additives. This may cause engine



Use of fuel that does not comply to

EN 228 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 3 229. A

country-specific label at the fuel filler

flap can supersede the requirement.

Fuel additive

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. In

certain countries fuel does not

contain sufficient quantities of

additive to keep fuel injectors and

intake valves clean. In these

countries a fuel additive is required for

some engines to make up for this lack

of detergency. Only use fuel additive

approved for the vehicle.
Adding fuel additive to the filled fuel

tank is required at least every 15,000

km or after one year, whichever

occurs first. For further information,

contact your workshop.

Prohibited fuels

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 illuminate 3 93.

If this occurs, seek the assistance of

a workshop.


Driving and operating


Fuel for diesel engines

Only use diesel fuel that complies

with EN 590 and which has a sulphur

concentration of max. 10 ppm.
Fuels with a biodiesel (compliant with

EN 14214) content of max. 7% by

volume may be used (e.g. named

If travelling in countries outside the

European Union occasional use of

Euro-Diesel fuel with a sulphur

concentration below 50 ppm is



Frequent usage of diesel fuel

containing more than 15 ppm

sulphur will cause severe engine



Use of fuel that does not comply to

EN 590 or similar can lead to

engine powerloss, increased wear

or engine damage.

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.

Fuel for liquid gas operation

Liquid gas is known as LPG

(Liquefied Petroleum Gas) or under

its French name GPL (Gaz de Pétrole

Liquéfié). LPG is also known as

LPG consists mainly of propane and

butane. The octane rating is between

105 and 115, depending on the

butane proportion. LPG is stored as a

liquid at a pressure of approx. five to

ten bar.
The boiling point depends on the

pressure and the mixing ratio. At

ambient pressure, it is between

-42 °C (pure propane) and -0.5 °C

(pure butane).



Driving and operating


The system works at an ambient

temperature of approx. -8 °C to

100 °C.

Full functioning of the LPG system

can only be guaranteed with liquid

gas which complies with the minimum

requirements of DIN EN 589.
Fuel selector 3 86.


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

Fuel is flammable and explosive.

No smoking. No naked flames or

If you can smell fuel in your

vehicle, have the cause of this

remedied immediately by a


A label with symbols at the fuel filler

flap is indicating the allowed fuel

types. In Europe the pump nozzles of

the filling stations are marked with

these symbols. Refuel only the

allowed fuel type.


In case of misfuelling, do not

switch on ignition.

vehicles with misfuel inhibitor.
Disregarding this could lead to

trapping of the fingers.

Diesel vehicle is equipped with a

misfuel inhibitor.

The misfuel inhibitor ensures that the

flap of the fuel filler neck can only be

opened by using the suitable fuel

nozzle or a funnel for emergency

In case of an emergency, refill with a

canister. A funnel must be used to

open the cap of the filler neck.



Driving and operating

The funnel is stowed in the load

Place the funnel in storage bin and

store into polybag.
Use the funnel to fill in the fuel into the

filler neck.
After topping-up, stow the funnel into

polybag in the load compartment.

penetration of foreign bodies into the

filler opening and the system.

9 Warning

Due to the system design, an

escape of liquid gas after

releasing the locking lever is

unavoidable. Avoid inhaling.

9 Warning

The liquid gas tank should only be

filled to 80% capacity, for safety


The multivalve on the liquid gas tank

automatically limits the fill quantity. If

a larger quantity is added, we

recommend not exposing the vehicle

to the sun until the excess amount

has been used up.

Fuel filler cap

Only use genuine fuel filler caps.

Diesel-engined vehicles have special

fuel filler caps.

Trailer hitch

General information

Only use towing equipment that has

been approved for your vehicle.

Entrust retrofitting of towing

equipment to a workshop. It may be

necessary to make changes that

affect the cooling system, heat

shields or other equipment.
The bulb outage detection function for

trailer brake light cannot detect a

partial bulb outage. E.g. in case of

four bulbs with a power of 5 W each,

the function only detects lamp outage

when only a single 5 W lamp remains

or none remain.
Fitting of towing equipment could

cover the opening of the towing eye.

If this is the case, use the coupling ball

bar for towing. Always keep the

coupling ball bar in the vehicle when

not in use.

Driving characteristics and

towing tips

Before attaching a trailer, lubricate

the coupling ball. However, do not do

so if a stabiliser, which acts on the

coupling ball, is being used to reduce

snaking movements.
For trailers with low driving stability

and caravan trailers with a permitted

gross vehicle weight of more than

1000 kg, a speed of 80 km/h must not

be exceeded. The use of a stabiliser

is recommended.
If the trailer starts snaking, drive more

slowly, do not attempt to correct the

steering and brake sharply if

When driving downhill, drive in the

same gear as if driving uphill and

drive at a similar speed.
Adjust tyre pressure to the value

specified for full load 3 235.


Driving and operating


Trailer towing

Trailer loads

The permissible trailer loads are

vehicle and engine-dependent

maximum values which must not be

exceeded. The actual trailer load is

the difference between the actual

gross weight of the trailer and the

actual coupling socket load with the

trailer coupled.
The permissible trailer loads are

specified in the vehicle documents. In

general, they are valid for gradients

up to max. 12%.
The permitted trailer loads apply up to

the specified incline and up to an

altitude of 1000 m above sea level.

Since engine power decreases as

altitude increases due to the air

becoming thinner, therefore reducing

climbing ability, the permissible gross

train weight also decreases by 10%

for every 1000 m of additional

altitude. The gross train weight does

not have to be reduced when driving

on roads with slight inclines (less than

8%, e.g. motorways).

The permissible gross train weight

must not be exceeded. This weight is

specified on the identification plate



Vertical coupling load

The vertical coupling load is the load

exerted by the trailer on the coupling

ball. It can be varied by changing the

weight distribution when loading the

The maximum permissible vertical

coupling load (75 kg) is specified on

the towing equipment identification

plate and in the vehicle documents.

Always aim for the maximum load,

especially in the case of heavy

trailers. The vertical coupling load

should never fall below 25 kg.

Rear axle load

The permissible axle loads (see

identification plate or vehicle

documents) must not be exceeded.

Towing equipment


When operating without a trailer,

remove the coupling ball bar.

Stowage of coupling ball bar

The bag with the coupling ball bar is

stowed in the rear stowage

compartment on the floor.
Place the strap through the lashing

eye, wrap around twice and tighten

the strap to secure the bag.



Driving and operating

Fitting the coupling ball bar

Disengage and fold down the socket.

Remove the sealing plug from the

opening for the coupling ball bar and

stow it.

Checking the tensioning of the

coupling ball bar

● Red marking on rotary knob must

point towards green marking on

coupling ball bar.

● The gap between the rotary knob

and the coupling ball bar must be

approx. 6 mm.

● The key must be in position c.

Otherwise, the coupling ball bar must

be tensioned before being inserted:

● Unlock coupling ball bar by

turning key to position c.

● Pull out rotary knob and turn

clockwise as far as it will go.

Inserting the coupling ball bar


Driving and operating


Insert the tensioned coupling ball bar

in the opening and push firmly

upwards until it audibly engages.
The rotary handle snaps back into its

original position resting against the

coupling ball bar without a gap.

9 Warning

Do not touch rotary handle during


Lock the coupling ball bar by turning

the key to position e. Remove the key

and close the protective flap.

Eye for break-away stopping cable

Attach breakaway stopping cable to


Check that the coupling ball bar is

correctly installed

● Green marking on rotary knob

must point towards green

marking on coupling ball bar.

● There must be no gap between

the rotary handle and the

coupling ball bar.

● The coupling ball bar must be

firmly engaged in the opening.

● The coupling ball bar must be

locked and the key removed.

9 Warning

Towing a trailer is permitted only

when a coupling ball bar is fitted

correctly. If the coupling ball bar

does not engage correctly, seek

the assistance of a workshop.

Dismounting the coupling ball bar

Open the protective flap and turn the

key to position c to unlock the

coupling ball bar.
