PARKING DISTANCE CONTROL
Ultrasonic detectors, installed in the
front or rear bumper depending on the
vehicle, measure the distance between
the vehicle and an obstacle whilst re-
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 25 centi-
metres from the obstacle.
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 responsibil-
ity whilst reversing.
The driver should always look out for sudden hazards during driving: always
ensure that there are no moving obstacles (such as a child, animal, pram or bi-
cycle, etc.) or small, narrow objects such as stones or posts in your path when
Front parking distance
(depending on vehicle)
The parking distance control system
is only activated when the vehicle is
driven at a speed below approximately
6 mph (10 km/h).
Any object located less than approxi-
mately 60 centimetres away from the
front of the vehicle is detected and a
beep is emitted.
Automatic activation/deactivation of
the front parking distance control
The system deactivates:
– when the assisted parking brake is
– when the vehicle speed is above ap-
proximately 6 mph (10 km/h);
– when the vehicle is stationary for
more than approximately five sec-
onds (such as when in a traffic jam
or waiting at red lights, etc.);
– when the vehicle is in neutral or when
the gear lever has been shifted to N
or P for automatic gearboxes.
