This function assists you in parking manoeuvres by taking control of the steering wheel, brakes, engine and gear control.

Throughout the manoeuvre, you must put pressure on the accelerator pedal (to keep the function working) and take your hands off the steering wheel.

You can take back control of the vehicle at any time by:

- turning the steering wheel;

- releasing the accelerator pedal;

- or by pressing the brake pedal.

Special features

Ensure that the ultrasonic sensors and the cameras indicated by the arrows 1 are not obscured (by dirt, mud, snow, a badly fitted/attached number plate etc.), impacted, modified (including paintwork etc.) or obstructed by any accessory fitted to the front or rear of your vehicle.

This function is an additional driving aid.

Therefore, it can under no circumstances replace the driver’s vigilance and responsibility during manoeuvres (the driver must always be ready to brake).

Switching on

With the vehicle stationary or driving at less than approximately 19 mph (30 km/h), there are several ways to access the function:

- Via the “Vehicle” World 2, press the “Automated park assist” menu 3;

- via the “Automated park assist” widget (if configured by the customer);

- via the “Favourites” button on the steering wheel (if configured by the customer);

- Via the “Automated park assist” shortcut in the 360° camera view.

Choice of manoeuvre

The system can perform three types of manoeuvre:

- parallel parking 4;

- perpendicular parking 5;

- moving out of a parallel parking space 6.

From the multimedia screen, select the manoeuvre you wish to perform.

Note: the other types of parking are not supported by the system.

Operation

Parking

As long as the vehicle speed is less than 20 mph (30 km/h), the system looks for available parking spaces on both sides of the vehicle.

Once a space has been found, it is displayed on the multimedia screen, indicated by the letter “P". Drive slowly until the "STOP" message appears accompanied by a beep. If more than one space is detected, you must select the desired space by touching the screen.

The vehicle will start to move. The system then controls the steering wheel, engine, brakes and gear changes.

Depending on the pressure on the accelerator pedal, speed varies between 0 and 4 mph (0 and 7 km/h) maximum.

The “Manoeuvre completed” message appears on the multimedia screen to indicate the end of the manoeuvre. The assisted parking brake is applied and the P position is engaged.

You can release the accelerator pedal.

The driver should always be ready for sudden incidents while driving: always ensure that there are no small, narrow moving obstacles (such as a child, animal, pushchair, bicycle, stone, post, towing equipment, etc.) in the blind spot when manoeuvring.

System servicing/repairs

- In the event of an impact, the operation of the sensors may be affected. Deactivate the function and consult an authorised dealer.

In the event of the system behaving abnormally, deactivate it and consult an authorised dealer.

Risk of erroneous false alarms.

Limitations of the system operation

- The system cannot detect objects located in the sensor blind spots.
