Features

If the eCall system is working properly, the indicator will light up in green.

Green: eCall system is ready.

Blinking in green: eCall system is connected and making an eCall to a PSAP 
operator.

Repeating a pattern of short flashes of the red light: The eCall system has failed 
to connect to an operator. The eCall indicator will continue this pattern for 5 
seconds, then it will light up in green.

If the 112-based eCall system is disabled in the event of a critical system failure, the 
following warning will be given to the occupants of the vehicle:

Red or blacked out: A problem with the eCall system has occurred. If the indicator 
stays red or blacked out even after you have restarted the vehicle, have the system 
check by a dealer.

Blinking in red: The level of the backup battery is too low. While the power is in 
ON, the battery undergoes recharging. Once the battery has been recharged to a 
certain level, the eCall indicator lights up in green.

Emergency Call (eCall)

Recipients of data processed by the 112-based eCall 
in-vehicle system are the relevant public safety 
answering points designated by the respective public 
authorities of the country in which they are located 
and are the first to receive and for which the single 
European emergency number 112 is designated.

Your vehicle may NOT be able to connect to a PSAP 
operator if:

both the 12V battery and backup battery are too 
low.

your vehicle is in an area without adequate cellular 
coverage.

There is a problem with the eCall system itself or its 
peripheral equipment such as the microphone or 
speakers.

The backup battery is designed to operate for at least 
3 years, after which it may need to be replaced.

The backup battery is not available for direct 
purchase. For replacement, visit a dealer.

Data privacy

The 112-based eCall in-vehicle system is designed to 
ensure that:

Data contained in the system memory is not 
available outside the system before an eCall is 
triggered.

It is not traceable or subject to any constant 
tracking during its normal operation status.

Data in the internal memory of the system is 
automatically and continuously removed.

For the system to function normally, the vehicle 
location data is constantly overwritten in the internal 
memory of the system so that the last three locations 
of the vehicle are kept up-to-date.

The log of activity data in the 112-based eCall in-
vehicle system is kept for no longer than necessary 
for attaining the purpose of handling the emergency 
eCall and in any case not beyond 13 hours from the 
moment an emergency eCall was initiated.

Interior Checks

Heat from the power system can ignite flammable 
materials left under the luggage area, causing a fire. 
If you’ve parked your vehicle for an extended period, 
inspect and remove any debris that may have 
collected, such as dried grass and leaves that have 
fallen or have been carried in for use as a nest by a 
small animal. Also check under the luggage area for 
leftover flammable materials after you or someone 
else has performed maintenance on your vehicle.

The headlight aim is set by the factory, and does not 
need to be adjusted. However, if you regularly carry 
heavy items in the luggage area, have the aiming 
readjusted at a dealer or by a qualified technician.

Your vehicle is equipped with the automatic 
headlight adjusting system that automatically adjusts 
the vertical angle of the low beam headlights.

Precautions While Driving

Driving

Precautions While Driving

Visibility becomes low when it is foggy. When you drive, turn on the low beam 
headlights even during the daytime. Slow down, using the road line in the centre, 
guard rails, and the taillights of the vehicle ahead of you as your driving guide.

If a strong side wind drifts your vehicle while driving, hold the steering wheel tight. 
Slowly decelerate your vehicle and keep your vehicle in the middle of the road. Be 
careful with wind gusts especially when your vehicle is exiting a tunnel, driving on a 
bridge or river bank, and driving through an open area like a quarry, and when a 
large lorry is passing by.

In a Fog

In a Strong Wind

1

Precautions While Driving

CAUTION: 

Do not drive on the road where water is 

deep. Driving through deep water will cause damage 
to the power system and electrical equipment and 
the vehicle will break down.

NOTICE

Do not select a shift button while pressing the 
accelerator pedal. You could damage the 
transmission.

NOTICE

If you repeatedly turn the steering wheel at an 
extremely low speed, or hold the steering wheel in 
the full left or right position for a while, the electric 
power steering (EPS) system heats up. The system 
goes into a protective mode, and limits its 
performance. The steering wheel becomes harder 
and harder to operate. Once the system cools down, 
the EPS system is restored.
Repeated operation under these conditions can 
eventually damage the system.

If the power mode is set to ACCESSORY while 
driving, the power system will shut down and all 
steering and brake power assist functions will stop, 
making it difficult to control the vehicle.

Do not press the 

(

N

 button, as you will lose 

regenerative braking (and acceleration) performance.

385

uu

When Driving

u

Transmission

Driving

The road is slippery when raining. Avoid hard braking, rapid acceleration, and 
abrupt steering and be more cautious when driving. It is likely to experience 
hydroplaning phenomenon if you are driving on a rutted road with puddles. Do not 
drive in deep water and on flooded roads. This can damage the power system or 
driveline, or cause electrical component failure.

If there is a strong impact with something under the vehicle, stop in a safe location. 
Check the underside of the vehicle for damage or any fluid leaks.

Transmission

As with a conventional petrol-powered vehicle with an automatic transmission, this 
vehicle will creep.
Keep the brake pedal firmly depressed when stopped.

In Rain

Other Precautions

Creeping

1

Precautions While Driving

Avoid hard braking for the first 300 km (200 miles).
You should also follow this when the brake pads are 
replaced.

1

In Rain

Be careful when hydroplaning phenomenon occurs. 
When you drive on a road covered with water at 
excessive speed, a layer of water builds between the 
tyres and the road surface. If this occurs, the vehicle 
cannot respond to control inputs such as steering, 
and braking.

Slowly decelerate when you deceleration stage. If the 
road is slippery, sudden regenerative braking can 
cause the tyres to skid.
