PARKING DISTANCE CONTROL
Ultrasonic detectors, installed in the rear bumper (depending on the vehicle), measure the distance between the vehicle and an obstacle whilst reversing.
This measurement is indicated by beeps which become more frequent the closer you come to the obstacle, until they become a continuous beep when the vehicle is approximately 30 centimetres from the obstacle.
When reverse gear is selected, most objects which are less than approximately 1.20 metres from the rear of the vehicle are detected, a beep sounds and, depending on the vehicle, the display 1 shows the area around the vehicle.
The parking distance control system does not take into account towing and load carrying systems etc.
Note: make sure that the ultrasonic sensors are not obscured (by dirt, mud, snow, etc.).
This function is an additional aid that indicates the distance between the vehicle and an obstacle whilst reversing, using sound signals.
Under no circumstances should it replace the driver’s care or responsibility whilst reversing.
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, etc.) in the blind spot when manoeuvring.
An impact to the underside of the vehicle while manoeuvring (e.g. striking a post, raised kerb or other street furniture) may result in damage to the vehicle (e.g. deformation of an axle).
To avoid any risk of accident, have your vehicle checked by an approved Dealer.
