LANE DEPARTURE WARNING 

(1/3)

This function is a driving aid in the event of the accidental crossing of 

a continuous or broken line in the road. However, the function is not in-

tended to replace the driver. The function can be disrupted under certain 

conditions, including:

–  poor visibility (rain, snow, fog, dirty windscreen, glare of the sun, partially ob-

scured road lines, etc.);

–  roads with tight bends;

–  closely following a vehicle in the same lane;

–  worn road markings, difficult to distinguish or spaced very widely apart;

– narrow roads;

– ...
In this case, the line visibility indicators remain uncoloured on the instrument 

panel to indicate that the function will not operate (lines not detected).
Under no circumstances should this function replace the driver’s care or respon-

sibility whilst performing manoeuvres.

This system notifies the driver when 

they accidentally cross a continuous or 

broken line.

This function uses a camera attached 

to the windscreen, behind the rear-view 

mirror.

BLIND SPOT WARNING 

(3/4)

Operation

This function will indicate:
–  when the vehicle speed is between 

approximately 30 km/h (19 mph) and 

140 km/h (87 mph);

–  when another vehicle is in the blind 

spot area and travelling in the same 

direction as your vehicle.

If another vehicle is being overtaken, 

the indicator 4 will be activated only if 

that vehicle remains in the blind spot for 

more than one second.

Indicator 4

An indicator light 4 is located on each 

door mirror 5.
Note: Clean the door mirrors 5 regu-

larly, so that the indicator lights 4 can 

be seen properly.

Display B

The function is activated and has not 

detected any vehicles.

Display C

Initial warning: the indicator light 4 

shows that a vehicle has been detected 

in the blind spot.

Display D

When the direction indicator is activa-

ted, the indicator light 4 flashes when a 

vehicle is detected in the blind spot on 

the side towards which you are about to 

steer. If you cancel the direction indica-

tor, the function will return to the initial 

warning (display C).

Note: The system’s detection range 

operates according to a standard 

lane width. If you are driving in 

narrow traffic lanes, it may detect 

vehicles in other lanes.

Operating faults

If the system detects a fault, the mes-

sage “Check blind spot alert” is dis-

played on the instrument panel. Consult 

an authorised dealer.
Note: When the engine is started, the 

indicator light 4 (display B) flashes 

three times. It is normal.

– The system’s detection 

range operates according 

to a standard lane width. If 

you are driving in wide traf-

fic lanes, the system might not 

be able to detect a vehicle in the 

blind spot.

–  The system might be disrupted 

momentarily if it is exposed to 

strong electromagnetic waves 

(as beneath high-tension power 

lines) or to very poor weather 

conditions (heavy rain, snow, 

etc.). Remain aware of driving 

conditions.

There is a risk of accidents.

BLIND SPOT WARNING 

(4/4)

Because sensors have 

been installed in the bump-

ers, any work (repairs, re-

placements, touching up of 

paintwork) must be carried out by a 

qualified professional.

CRUISE CONTROL-SPEED LIMITER: speed limiter function 

(1/3)

Switching on

Press switch 1 on side 

. The indica-

tor light 

 comes on, lit orange, and 

the message “Speed limiter” appears 

on the instrument panel, accompanied 

by dashes to indicate that the speed 

limiter function is activated and waiting 

to store a limited speed.

To store the current speed, press the 

switch 2 on side a (+): the limited speed 

will replace the dashes.

The minimum stored speed is 20 mph 

(30 km/h).

Controls

1  Main “On/Off” switch.
2 Controls for:

  a  speed limiter activation, memory 

and increase (+); 

  b  decreasing the speed limiter (-).
3  Activation and recall of memorised 

limited speed (R).

4  Speed limiter function standby (with 

limited speed memory) (O).

The speed limiter function helps you 

stay within the driving speed limit that 

you choose, known as the limit speed.

If you wish, you can associate the 

speed limiter and the “Overspeed 

alert” function (please refer to the in-

formation on the “Overspeed alert” 

in Section 2).

CRUISE CONTROL-SPEED LIMITER: speed limiter function 

(2/3)

Exceeding the limit speed

It is possible to exceed the limit speed 

at any time. To do this: press the accel-

erator pedal firmly and fully (beyond 

the resistance point).
While the speed is being exceeded, the 

speed limiter flashes red on the instru-

ment panel.
Then, release the accelerator: the 

speed limiter function will return as 

soon as you reach a speed lower than 

the stored speed.

Limited speed cannot be maintained
If driving up or down a steep gradient, 

the system is unable to maintain the 

limited speed: the memorised speed 

flashes red on the instrument panel and 

a beep sounds at regular intervals to 

inform you.

Varying the limit speed

The speed limiter can be changed by 

repeatedly pressing the switch 2:
– side a (+) to increase the speed;
– side b (-) to reduce the speed.

Driving

When a limited speed has been stored 

and this speed is not reached, driving is 

similar to driving a vehicle without the 

speed limiter function.
Once you have reached the stored 

speed, no effort on the accelera-

tor pedal will allow you to exceed 

the programmed speed except in an 

emergency (refer to information on 

“Exceeding the limit speed”).

The speed limiter function is 

in no way linked to the brak-

ing system.

CRUISE CONTROL-SPEED LIMITER: speed limiter function 

(3/3)

Recalling the limit speed

If a speed has been saved, it can be re-

called by pressing switch 3 ((R)).

Putting the function on 

standby

The speed limiter function is sus-

pended when you press switch 4 (O). 

In this case, the speed limit remains 

stored and the message “Memorised” 

accompanied by this speed appears on 

the instrument panel.

Switching off the function

The speed limiter function is deacti-

vated if you press switch 1: in this case 

a speed is no longer stored. The orange 

 warning light and message on the 

instrument panel goes out to confirm 

that the function is deactivated.

When the speed limiter is put on 

standby, pressing side a (+) on 

the switch 2 reactivates the func-

tion without taking into account 

the stored speed: it is the speed at 

which the vehicle is moving that is 

taken into account.

Operating principle

The system detects speed limit signs 

on the side of the road and displays the 

speed limit.

This mainly uses information taken 

from the camera 1, attached to the 

windscreen behind the rear-view mirror.
Note: Make sure the windscreen is not 

obstructed (dirt, ice, snow, etc.).
With the engine running, once you have 

activated the system, dashes on the in-

strument panel notify the driver that the 

system is running.
When a speed limit sign is detected, 

this speed will replace the dashes for 

a few seconds, after which the dashes 

will come on again until the next speed 

limit sign is detected.

OVERSPEED ALERT 

(1/3)

The overspeed alert with signage panel 

recognition notifies the driver that they 

are exceeding the speed limit for the 

section of road on which they are cur-

rently travelling.

Once the speed limiter is activated, you 

can adjust the speed limiter indication 

displayed by the system.
In the event of exceeding the speed 

limit, the sign display is modified (the 

characters change to red or the circle 

around the sign flashes) no notify you.

Special situation
The system does not take into account 

exceptional speed limit measures, such 

as peak pollution days.

2.56

This function is an additional driving aid. However, 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.
The driver should always adapt their speed to the traffic conditions, re-

gardless of the system indications.
The system enables maximum speed signs to be detected and does not detect 

other traffic signage.
The driver should not, however, ignore signs which are not detected by the system 

and should as a priority comply with the traffic signage and the highway code.
In the event of poor visibility (fog, snow, frost, etc.), it is possible that the system 

may not indicate the correct speed to the driver.
The driver should always adapt their speed to the traffic conditions, regardless of 

the system indications.

OVERSPEED ALERT 

(3/3)

Operating fault

The system cannot detect the speed 

limit if:
–  the windscreen is not clean;
–  the camera is blinded by the sun;
–  there is insufficient visibility (night, 

fog, etc.);

–  the signs are not legible (snow, etc.) 

or are hidden (by another vehicle or 

by trees).

2.57

CRUISE CONTROL-SPEED LIMITER: cruise control function 

(1/4)

The cruise control function helps you to 

maintain your driving speed at a speed 

that you choose, called the cruising 

speed.
This cruising speed may be set at any 

speed above 20 mph (30 km/h).

The cruise control function 

is in no way linked to the 

braking system.

This function is an addi-

tional driving aid. However, 

the function does not take 

the place of the driver. 

Therefore, it can under no circum-

stances replace the driver’s respon-

sibility to respect speed limits and to 

be vigilant (the driver must always 

be ready to brake). Cruise control 

must not be used in heavy traffic, on 

undulating or slippery roads (black 

ice, aquaplaning, gravel) and during 

bad weather (fog, rain, side winds 

etc.).
There is a risk of accidents.

Controls

1  Main “On/Off” switch.
2 Controls for:

  a  cruising speed activation, storage 

and increase (+);

  b  decreasing cruising speed (-).
3  Activation with recall of saved cruis-

ing speed (R).

4  Switch the function to standby (with 

cruising speed saved) (O).

Once a cruising speed is memorised 

and the cruise control function is active, 

you may lift your foot off the accelera-

tor pedal.

Please note that you are 

strongly advised to keep 

your feet close to the pedals 

in order to react in an emer-

gency.

Activating cruise control

At a steady speed (above approx. 

20 mph (30 km/h)), press the switch 2 

on side a (+): the function is activated 

and the current speed is saved.
The cruising speed replaces the dashes 

and cruise control is confirmed by the 

appearance of the message “Check 

cruise control” and the warning light 

.

If you try to activate the function below 

20 mph (30 km/h), the message “Invalid 

speed” will be displayed and the func-

tion will remain inactive.

Switching on

Press switch 1 on side 

.

Indicator light 

 comes on, lit green,
