First read and observe the introductory information and safety warnings

Preparations for parking

  • The traction control system (TCD) must be switched on   .
  • For parking spaces parallel to the road: push the button once while travelling at a speed of less than approximately 50 km/h (30 mph). When the function is switched on, a lamp lights up in the button  .
  • For parking spaces perpendicular to the road: push the button twice while travelling at a speed of less than approximately 50 km/h (30 mph). When the function is switched on, a lamp lights up in the button  .
  • Press the button again to switch between the parking modes, if necessary.
  • Press the turn signal lever for the side of the street that you wish to park. The corresponding side of the street is shown on the instrument cluster display.

Parking

  • When parking parallel to the road: drive past the parking space at a speed of no more than 40km/h (25 mph) and at a distance between approximately 0.5 m and 2 m from the parking space.
  • When parking perpendicular to the road: drive past the parking space at a speed of no more than 20 km/h (12 mph) and at a distance between approximately 0.5 m and 2 m from the parking space.
  • You will achieve the best parking results if you stop your vehicle as parallel as possible to the parked vehicles or the edge of the road.
  • If a suitable parking space is indicated in the instrument cluster display, stop the vehicle and select the reverse gear.
  • Follow the instructions in the instrument cluster display.
  • After a brief pause, release the steering wheel when the following message is shown  : Steering interv. active! Monitor the area around vehicle.
  • Check the area around the vehicle and carefully depress the accelerator pedal – do not exceed 7 km/h (4 mph).
  • The Park Assist system will only operate the steering wheel during the parking procedure. The driver operates the accelerator, clutch, gear shift and brake.
  • Follow the visual instructions and the audible warning signals of the Park Assist system until the parking procedure has been completed.
  • The Park Assist system will guide the vehicle when driving forwards and reversing until the vehicle is parked straight in the parking space.
  • A message is displayed on the instrument cluster display once the parking procedure is completed.

Interrupting or stopping the parking procedure

The Park Assist system will interrupt the parking procedure if one of the following happens:

  • The button is pressed.
  • The vehicle speed when parking is higher than approx. 7 km/h (4 mph).
  • The driver operates the steering wheel.
  • The parking procedure was not completed within approximately six minutes of activating the automatic steering intervention.
  • There is a system malfunction (system is temporarily unavailable).
  • The TCS is switched off or the TCS or ESP starts to regulate.

WARNING

When parking using the Park Assist system the steering wheel will automatically turn the steering wheel quickly. You could be injured if you attempt to touch the steering wheel spokes.

The Park Assist system has system-related limitations. The Park Assist system cannot, for example, help you park the vehicle in tight bends.

If the Park Assist system recognises that there is not enough space to manoeuvre the vehicle, the parking space may still be indicated on the instrument cluster display. You are then not invited to park the vehicle.

If you switch between driving forwards and reversing too early during the parking manoeuvre, i.e. before the permanent signal from the parking distance warning system can be heard, the parking result may not be optimal.

When parking perpendicular to the side of the road, a signal is emitted in order to tell the driver to switch between driving forwards and reversing because the change of direction should not take place in the permanent tone area of the parking distance warning system.

The Park Assist system can also be activated retroactively if you drive past a suitable parallel parking space at a maximum speed of 40 km/h (25 mph) or a perpendicular parking space at a speed of 20 km/h (12 mph) and then press the button.

The progress bar in the instrument cluster display will symbolically indicate the relative distance remaining.

If the Park Assist system turns the steering wheel when the vehicle is stationary, the symbol appears as well. Depress the brake pedal so that the steering movement takes place with the vehicle stationary, keeping the required number of parking movements to a minimum.

A parking space will be regarded as suitable if it is at least 0.8 m longer than the vehicle.

If the parking result worsens after a wheel is changed, the system will first have to learn the new wheel scope. The learning procedure is carried out automatically while the vehicle is in motion. You can support this learning process by driving slowly (less than 20 km/h (12 mph)) through a bend e.g. in an empty car park.
