  • The rear window wiper is switched on if the windscreen wipers are switched on.
  • The parking distance warning system, the optical parking system and the Rear Assist rear-view camera are switched on if necessary.

  • Pull-away assist systems  
  • Parking distance warning  
  • Park Assist system

Rapid acceleration can cause loss of traction and skidding, particularly on slippery roads. This could cause you to lose control of the vehicle, causing accidents and serious injuries.
  • The kick-down function or fast acceleration should only be attempted if the visibility, weather, road and traffic conditions permit.


Never ride the brake pedal. Do not over-use the brake pedal. Constant braking will cause the brakes to overheat. This will considerably reduce the brake effect, increase the braking distance and could cause the brake system to fail completely.

  • Never let the brakes rub by applying light pressure when it is not necessary. This will increase levels of wear.
  • Before driving down a long, steep gradient, reduce speed and change to a lower gear or move the selector lever to a lower gear position. This will make use of the engine braking effect and relieve the load on the brakes. The brakes could otherwise overheat and possibly fail. The brakes should only be used to slow the vehicle down or to stop it.
