CRUISE CONTROL 

(3/4)

Exceeding the cruising speed

The cruising speed may be exceeded 

at any time by depressing the accelera-

tor pedal. While it is being exceeded, 

the cruising speed flashes on the in-

strument panel.
Then, release the accelerator: after a 

few seconds, the vehicle will automati-

cally return to its set cruising speed.

Cruising speed cannot be 

maintained
When driving down a steep gradient, 

the system is unable to maintain the 

cruising speed: the stored speed will 

flash on the instrument panel informa-

tion display to inform you of this situ-

ation.

Adjusting the cruising speed

The cruising speed may be changed by 

pressing the following repeatedly:
– switch 2 (+) to increase the speed,
– switch 3 (-) to decrease the speed.

The cruise control function 

is in no way linked to the 

braking system.

Putting the function on 

standby

The function is set to standby if you:

–  use the switch 5 (O);

–  the brake pedal;

–  depress the clutch pedal or the shift 

into neutral if the vehicle has an au-

tomatic gearbox.

In all three cases, the cruising speed 

remains stored and, depending on the 

vehicle:

– the message “Memorised” and 

stored speed are displayed on the 

instrument panel.

–  the stored speed is displayed be-

tween <xxx> markers on the instru-

ment panel.

Standby is confirmed when indicator 
light 

 goes out.

2.37

Switching off the function

The cruise control function is deacti-

vated if you press switch 1: in this case 

a speed is no longer stored. The two in-
strument panel warning lights 

 and 

 go out to confirm that the function is 

deactivated.

NB: if the speed previously stored is 

much higher than the current speed, 

the vehicle will accelerate more rapidly 

to reach this threshold.

When the cruise control function is 

put on standby, pressing switch 2 

(+) reactivates the cruise control 

function without taking into account 

the stored speed: it is the speed at 

which the vehicle is moving that is 

taken into account.

CRUISE CONTROL 

(4/4)

Putting the cruise control 

on standby or switching it 

off does not cause a rapid 

reduction in speed: you 

must brake by depressing the brake 

pedal.

Standby is confirmed when indicator 
light 

 goes out.

Returning to the cruising speed
If a speed is stored, it can be recalled, 

once you are sure that the road con-

ditions are suitable (traffic, road sur-

face, weather conditions, etc.). Press 

switch  4 (R) if the vehicle speed is 

above 20 mph (30 km/h).

When the stored speed is recalled, acti-

vation of the cruise control is confirmed 
by the illumination of the 

 warning 

light.

2.38

Operating principle

Ultrasonic sensors in the rear bumper 

measure the distance between the ve-

hicle and an obstacle.
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 20 to 

30 centimetres from the obstacle.
The system detects obstacles to the 

front, the rear and the sides of the ve-

hicle.
The parking distance control system 

is only activated when the vehicle is 

driven at a speed below approximately 

6 mph (10 km/h).
The parking distance control system 

does not take into account towing and 

load carrying systems etc.

PARKING DISTANCE CONTROL 

(1/4)

Special features
Ensure that the ultrasonic sensors indi-

cated by arrows 1 are not obscured (by 

dirt, mud, snow, etc.).

This function is an addi-

tional aid that indicates the 

distance between the vehi-

cle and an obstacle whilst 

reversing, using sound signals.
Under no circumstances should it 

replace the driver’s care or respon-

sibility whilst reversing.
The driver should always be ready 

for sudden incidents while driv-

ing: 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.

2.39

PARKING DISTANCE CONTROL 

(2/4)

Note: the display 2 shows the vehicle 

surroundings and emits beeps.
It is necessary to travel a few metres 

before the side detection is activated.
If all areas have a grey background, the 

whole area around the vehicle is being 

monitored:
–  A: analysis of the vehicle surround-

ings in progress;

–  B: analysis of the vehicle surround-

ings carried out.

Operation

Most objects located less near the 

front, rear and sides of the vehicle are 

detected.
Depending on the distance of the ob-

stacle, the frequency of the beep will 

be higher while approaching it, and will 

become a solid beep around 20 cm for 

obstacles to the sides, and 30 cm for 

obstacles to the front or rear. Green, 

orange and red zones will be displayed 

on the display C.

PARKING DISTANCE CONTROL 

(3/4)

If a side obstacle is detected:
–  the beeps become faster and then 

sound continuously as the obstacle 

gets nearer. Green, orange and red 

zones will be displayed on the dis-

play D;

–  if there is no risk of collision, no beep 

will sound when approaching the ob-

stacle. Green, orange and red zones 

will be displayed interspersed on the 

display D.

Note: in the event of a change in tra-

jectory during a manoeuvre, the risk of 

collision with an obstacles may be sig-

nalled late.

An impact to the under-

side of the vehicle while 

manoeuvring (e.g.: strik-

ing a post, raised kerb or 

other street furniture) may result in 

damage to the vehicle (e.g.: defor-

mation of an axle).
To avoid any risk of accident, have 

your vehicle checked by an ap-

proved Dealer.

Detection of obstacles to the side
Depending on the direction of the 

wheels, the system determines the tra-

jectory of the vehicle and notifies the 

driver of any risk or otherwise of a col-

lision with an obstacle 3 to the side of 

the vehicle.

Note:

–  ensure that the reversing camera is 

not obscured (dirt, mud, snow, etc.);

–  depending on the vehicle, certain 

settings can be adjusted from the 

touch screen 2. Refer to the hand-

book for the equipment.

Operation

When going into reverse gear (and up 

to around 5 seconds after shifting into 

another gear), the camera 1 placed 

next to the lights transmits a view of 

the rear surroundings of the vehicle on 

the touch screen 2, accompanied by a 

mobile and fixed gauge.
This system is initially used with the aid 

of several gauges (mobile for trajectory 

and fixed for distance). When the red 

zone is reached, use the bumper image 

to stop accurately.

This function is an additional 

aid. It cannot, therefore, 

under any circumstances 

replace the vigilance or the 

responsibility of the driver.
The driver should always be ready 

for sudden incidents while driv-

ing: 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.

2.43

REVERSING CAMERA 

(2/2)

The screen shows a reverse image.
The frames are a representation 

projected onto flat ground; this in-

formation must not be taken into 

account when superimposed on a 

vertical object or an object on the 

ground.
Objects which appear on the edge 

of the screen may be deformed.
In very bright light (snow, vehicle in 

sunshine etc.), the camera vision 

may be adversely affected.
If the boot is open or poorly closed, 

the message “BOOT OPEN” ap-

pears and, depending on the vehi-

cle, the camera display disappears.

The fixed clearance gauge comprises 

coloured markers AB and C, indicat-

ing the distance behind the vehicle:
–  A (red) approximately 30 centime-

tres from the vehicle;

–  B (yellow) approximately 70 centi-

metres from the vehicle;

–  C (green) approximately 150 centi-

metres from the vehicle.

This gauge remains fixed and indicates 

the vehicle trajectory if the wheels are 

in line with the vehicle.

Dynamic gauge 3 (depending on the 

vehicle)
This is shown in blue on screen 2. It in-

dicates the vehicle trajectory according 

to the position of the steering wheel.

ASSISTED PARKING 

(2/4)

Choice of manoeuvre

The system can perform four types of 

manoeuvres:
– parallel parking;
– perpendicular parking;
– angle parking;
– moving out of a parallel parking 

space.

From the multifunction screen, select 

the manoeuvre to be performed.
Note: when starting the vehicle, or after 

having successfully completed parallel 

parking using the system, the default 

manoeuvre proposed by the system is 

assistance in exiting a parallel parking 

space. In other cases, the default ma-

noeuvre can be set from the multifunc-

tion screen.

Operation

Parking
As long as the vehicle speed is less 

than 20 mph (30 km/h), the system 

looks for available parking spaces on 

both sides of the vehicle.
Once a space has been found, it is dis-

played on the multifunction screen, in-

dicated by a small letter “P”. So that 

the vehicle can detect a space, drive 

slowly, with the indicators activated on 

the same side as the space, until the 

message “Stop” is displayed, along 

with a beep. 
The space is then indicated on the mul-

tifunction screen by a capital “P”.
–  Stop the vehicle;
–  select reverse gear.

The 

 indicator light lights up 

on the instrument panel and a beep 

sounds;
–  release the steering wheel;
–  follow the system instructions pro-

vided on the multifunction screen.

Your speed should not exceed around 

4 mph (7 km/h).

Once the warning light 

 on the 

instrument panel goes off and a beep 

sounds, the manoeuvre has been com-

pleted.

2.46

ASSISTED PARKING 

(3/4)

Your speed should not exceed around 

4 mph (7 km/h).

Once in position to exit the space, the 

system will notify you of the end of the 

manoeuvre.

Once the warning light 

 on the 

instrument panel goes off and a beep 

sounds, the manoeuvre has been com-

pleted.

Suspending the manoeuvre

The manoeuvre is suspended in the fol-

lowing circumstances:

–  you take control of the wheel;

–  a door or the boot is opened;

–  the vehicle is at a standstill for too 

long;

–  an obstacle in the direction of move-

ment prevents the manoeuvre from 

being completed;

–  the engine will stop.

Once the warning light 

 on the 

instrument panel goes off and a beep 

sounds, the manoeuvre has been sus-

pended. To resume the manoeuvre, 

press and hold the system activation 

switch.

In this case, the reason for suspending 

the manoeuvre will be displayed on the 

multifunction screen.
Make sure:

–  you have released the steering wheel 

and;

–  that all doors and the boot are closed, 

and;

–  that no obstacles are in the way of 

the direction of movement, and;

–  that the engine is started.

Cancelling the manoeuvre

The manoeuvre can be stopped in the 

following cases:

–  by pressing the system activation 

switch;

– the vehicle speed has exceeded 

4 mph (7 km/h);

–  you have performed more than ten 

forwards/backwards movements in 

one manoeuvre;

–  the parking distance control sensors 

are dirty or blocked;

–  the vehicle wheels have skidded.

Once the warning light 

 on the 

instrument panel goes off and a beep 

sounds, the manoeuvre has been com-

pleted.

Exiting a parallel parking space
–  Select “Exit parallel parking space” 

mode;

–  activate the direction indicator on the 

side you wish to go out of;

– press and hold switch 1 (around 

2 seconds).

The 

 indicator light lights up 

on the instrument panel and a beep 

sounds;

–  release the steering wheel;

–  go forwards and backwards using 

the parking distance control system 

alerts.

ASSISTED PARKING 

(4/4)

This function is an additional driving aid. This function is not under any circumstances intended to replace the due care 

and attention of the driver, who should at all times be in control of the vehicle.
Make sure that the manoeuvre complies with the applicable traffic regulations at your location.

–  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.

–  The system cannot detect objects located in the sensor blind spots.
–  When manoeuvring, the steering wheel may turn quickly: do not put your hands inside, and make sure that nothing is caught 

inside.

–  Always visually check that the parking space proposed by the system is still available and contains no obstacles.
–  The system should only be used when towing a trailer or when there is a towing or load carrying system on the vehicle.

(1/3)

Operation

With the selection lever 1 in position P

switch on the ignition.
To move out of position P, you must de-

press the brake pedal before pressing 

the unlocking button 2.
With the foot on the brake pedal (the 

warning light 3 on the display goes out), 

move the lever out of position P.
Only engage D or R when the vehi-

cle is stopped, with your foot on the 

brake and the accelerator pedal re-

leased.

Driving in automatic mode

Move lever 1 to position D.
In most road conditions you will en-

counter, you will not need to touch your 

lever again: the gears will change au-

tomatically at the right time and at the 

most suitable engine speed because 

the automatic system takes into ac-

count the vehicle load and road contour 

and adjusts itself to the particular driv-

ing style you have chosen.

Economical driving
When driving, always leave the lever 

in position D, keeping the accelerator 

pedal lightly depressed to ensure auto-

matic gear changes at a lower engine 

speed.

Accelerating and overtaking
Depress the accelerator pedal firmly 

and fully (so that it goes beyond the 

kickdown point).
This will enable you to change down 

to the optimum gear within the 

engine range.

2.49

AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION 

(2/3)

Special cases

In certain driving conditions (result-

ing in, for example, engine protection, 

operation of the Electronic Stability 

Control programme: ESC etc.) the au-

tomated system may change the gear 

automatically.

Likewise, to prevent incorrect manoeu-

vres, a gear change may be refused by 

the automatic system: in this case the 

gear display flashes for a few seconds 

as a warning.

Special circumstances

–  If the bends and road surface do 

not allow you to stay in automatic 

mode (e.g. in the mountains), we 

recommend that you change to 

manual mode. This will prevent the 

automatic gearbox from changing 

gear repeatedly when climbing, and 

permit engine braking on long de-

scents.

–  In cold weather, start the engine 

and wait a few seconds before 

moving the selector lever from posi-

tion P or N and engaging it in D or R 

to prevent the engine stalling.

Driving in manual mode

With the selection lever 1 in position D

move the lever to the left.
Shifting the lever repeatedly allows you 

to change gears manually:

–  to move down through the gears, 

push the lever forwards;

–  to move up through the gears, push 

the lever backwards.

The gear selected is displayed on the 

instrument panel.

When facing uphill, to remain 

stopped, do not keep your foot on 

the accelerator.
Risk of overheating the automatic 

gearbox.

2.50

AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION 

(3/3)

Parking the vehicle

When the vehicle is stopped, move the 

lever to position P while keeping your 

foot on the brake pedal: the gearbox is 

in neutral and the drive wheels are me-

chanically locked by the driveshaft.

Apply the handbrake.

When setting off, if the lever is locked 

in position P even though you are 

pressing the brake pedal, the lever can 

be released manually. For this, unclip 

the base of the lever then insert a tool 

(with a hard rod to it) into the slot 5 to 

unlock the lever.
Contact an authorised dealer as soon 

as possible.

Operating faults

–  when driving, if the message 

“CHECK AUTO GEARBOX” appears 

on the instrument panel, it indicates 

a failure.
Contact your approved Dealer as 

soon as possible;

–  when driving, if the message 

“AUTO GEARBOX OVERHEATING” 

appears on the instrument panel, 

stop as soon as possible to let the 

gearbox cool down and wait for the 

message to disappear;

–  If a vehicle with an automatic 

gearbox breaks down, refer to the 

information on “Towing” in Section 5.

For safety reasons, do not 

switch off the ignition before 

the vehicle has come to a 

complete standstill.

An impact to the under-

side of the vehicle while 

manoeuvring (e.g.: strik-

ing a post, raised kerb or 

other street furniture) may result in 

damage to the vehicle (e.g.: defor-

mation of an axle).
To avoid any risk of accident, have 

your vehicle checked by an ap-

proved Dealer.
