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 6 will be activated only if 

that vehicle remains in the blind spot for 

more than one second.

Display B

The function is activated and has not 

detected any vehicles.

Display C

First warning: the indicator 4 means 

that a vehicle has been detected in the 

blind spot.

Display D

When the direction indicator is activa-

ted, the indicator light 6 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).

7

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.

Indicator 6

An indicator light 6 is situated on both 

door mirrors 7.
Note: clean the door mirrors 7 regularly 

so that the indicators 6 can be seen.

Operating faults

If the system detects a fault, the mes-

sage “Check blind spot alert” is dis-

played on the instrument panel. Call an 

approved Dealer.
Note: when the engine is started, the 

indicator light 6, 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.

Because sensors have 

been installed in the bum-

pers, any work (repairs, re-

placements, touching up of 

paintwork) must be carried out by a 

qualified professional.

Conditions for non-function

–  If the object is not moving;
–  if traffic is heavy;
–  the road is winding;
–  if front and rear sensors both detect 

objects at the same time (e.g. when 

passing an articulated lorry).

BLIND SPOT WARNING 

(4/4)

2.47

SAFE DISTANCE ALERT 

(1/2)

Activating/deactivating the 

function

From the multifunction screen 2, select 

menu “Vehicle”, “Driving assistance”, 

“Distance warning” then choose “ON” 

or “OFF”.

1

Using the sensor 1, this function noti-

fies the driver about the time interval 

separating them from the vehicle in 

front, so they can respect a safe dis-

tance between the two vehicles.
Note: make sure that the sensor 1 is 

not obscured (by dirt, mud, snow, etc.).
The function is activated when the vehi-

cle speed is between about 18.6 and 

124 mph (30 and 200 km/h).
When the engine is started, the func-

tion maintains the same status that was 

active when the engine was last stop-

ped.

You can access menu “Driving as-

sistance” directly from button 3 

.

This function is an additio-

nal driving aid. However, 

this function is not under 

any circumstances in-

tended to replace the due care and 

attention of the driver, who should at 

all times be in control of the vehicle.

2.48

SAFE DISTANCE ALERT 

(2/2)

The measurement is dis-

played for information 

purposes: the system does 

not carry out any action on 

the vehicle.

This function is not designed for use 

in urban conditions or for a dynamic 

driving style (sudden cornering, ac-

celeration, braking etc.).

The function does not interact with 

the braking system.

The sensor area should be kept 

clean and free of any modifications 

to ensure the proper operation of 

the system.

Any work in the area where the 

radar is located (repairs, replace-

ments, touching up of paintwork) 

must be carried out by a qualified 

professional.

–  C (orange): the time interval falls 

between around 1 and 2 seconds (in-

sufficient distance between the two 

vehicles);

–  D (red): the time interval is less than 

or equal to around one second (very 

insufficient distance between the two 

vehicles).

If the interval between the two vehicles 

is less than around 0.5 seconds, war-

ning light 4 will flash on the instrument 

panel. Under certain conditions, the 

time interval may not be displayed:

– while cornering;

–  when changing lane;

–  if the vehicle in front is sufficiently far 

or outside the range of the sensor.

On equipped vehicles, some infor-

mation is given on the head-up dis-

play.

Operation

Upon activating the function, indicator 4 

notifies the driver of the distance sepa-

rating them from the vehicle in front.
–  A (grey): function not operational;
–  A (green): no vehicle detected;
–  B (green): the time interval is greater 

than or equal to around two seconds 

(distance between the two vehicles 

adapted to your speed);

This function is essential if adaptive 

cruise control is activated.

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 

switch  2 side a (+): the limited speed 

replaces 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)

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 accelerator pedal 

will allow you to exceed the program-

med speed except in an emergency 

(refer to information on “Exceeding the 

limit speed”).

The speed limiter function is 

in no way linked to the bra-

king system.

a

2

Exceeding the limit speed

It is possible to exceed the limit speed 

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

lerator pedal firmly and fully (beyond 

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

programmed speed displayed on the 

instrument panel flashes.
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
When driving down a steep gradient, 

the system is unable to maintain the 

limit speed: the memorised speed will 

flash on the instrument panel and an 

audible signal sounds at regular inter-

vals to inform you of this situation.

2.51

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 limit speed remains 

stored and the message "Memorised» 

accompanied by this speed appears on 

the instrument panel.

Switching off the function

The speed limiter function is deac-

tivated if you press switch 1: in this 

case a speed is no longer stored. The 

orange instrument panel warning light 

 goes out, confirming that the func-

tion is stopped.

When the speed limiter is set to 

standby, pressing on the side a (+) 

of the switch 2 reactivates the func-

tion without taking into account the 

memorised speed: it is the speed at 

which the vehicle is moving that is 

taken into account.

2.52

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.

Special situations

–  If the vehicle is travelling in a coun-

try where the speed units differ from 

those of the vehicle, the system dis-

plays the speed limit sign in the unit 

of the country, alongside the speed 

limit converted to the unit used by the 

vehicle’s instrument panel.

–  For countries where the speed limit 

is reduced during rainy weather on 

some types of roads, the system can 

modify the limited speed after a few 

seconds of wiping the windscreen.

–  The system does not take into ac-

count exceptional speed limit meas-

ures, such as peak pollution days.

On equipped vehicles, some infor-

mation is given on the head-up dis-

play.

1

Operating principle

The system detects speed limit signs 

on the side of the road and displays the 

speed limit.

It mainly uses information taken from 

the camera 1, attached to the wind-

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

obstructed (dirt, ice, snow, etc.).
For vehicles which are equipped with it, 

the system also uses information from 

the navigation system.
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.

ance”, and “Speed alert settings”, and 

then choose “ON” or “OFF”.

With the function activated and de-

pending on local laws, you can activate 

the “increased vigilance zones”. The 

system will notify you of the distance 

separating you from this zone, and 

while you are travelling in the zone.

Vehicles not fitted with a navigation 

system

–  With the vehicle at a standstill, press 

and hold the switch 5 OK to access 

the settings menu;

–  repeatedly press the control 6 up or 

down until you reach the “Driving as-

sistance” menu. Press the switch 5

from the detected speed value, press 

and hold the switch 4:

– side a (+) to increase the notification 

speed to the detected speed;

– side b (-) to reduce the notification 

speed to the detected speed.

You can access menu “Driving as-

sistance” directly from button 3 

.

2.54

OVERSPEED ALERT 

(3/3)

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.

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);

–  the information taken from the navi-

gation system is not up to date.

2.55

CRUISE CONTROL/SPEED LIMITER: cruise control function (1/4)

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).

5  Switch the function to standby (with 

cruising speed saved) (O).

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).

4  This control is only activated for ve-

hicles fitted with adaptive cruise 

control (refer to the information on 

“adaptive cruise control” in sec-

tion 2).

CRUISE CONTROL/SPEED LIMITER: cruise control function (2/4)

Driving

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.

Switching on

Press switch 1 on side 

.

Indicator light 

 comes on, lit green, 

and the message “Cruise Control” 

appears on the instrument panel, 

accompanied by dashes to indicate that 

the cruise control function is activated 

and waiting to store a cruising speed.

Activating cruise control

At a steady speed (above approxi-

mately 18.6 mph (30 km/h)) press 

switch 2 side a (+): the function is acti-

vated and the current speed is memo-

rised.
The cruising speed replaces the dashes 

and cruise control is confirmed by dis-

playing of the cruising speed, the mes-

sage “Cruise control” and depending on 
the vehicle the indicator light 

, in ad-

dition to the indicator light 

 or 

.

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.

2.57

CRUISE CONTROL/SPEED LIMITER: cruise control function (3/4)

Exceeding the cruising speed

The cruising speed may be exceeded 

at any time by depressing the accelera-

tor pedal. While overtaking, the cruis-

ing speed flashes red on the instrument 

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
If driving up or down a steep gradi-

ent, the system is unable to maintain 

the cruising speed: the stored speed is 

flashes red on the instrument panel to 

inform you of this situation.

Adjusting the cruising speed

The cruising speed can be changed by 

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

The cruise control function 

is in no way linked to the 

braking system.

CRUISE CONTROL/SPEED LIMITER: cruise control function (4/4)

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 these three cases, the cruising 

speed remains stored and the mes-

sage “Memorised” accompanied by this 

speed appears on the instrument panel.

Standby is confirmed by the display of 

the cruising speed in grey and the mes-

sage “Memorised”.

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.

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  3 (R) if the vehicle speed is 

above 20 mph (30 km/h). 
When the stored speed is recalled, 

activation of the cruise control is con-

firmed by the illumination of the cruis-

ing speed in green, along with the mes-

sage “Cruise control”.
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 is set to 

standby, pressing on the side a (+) 

of the 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.

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. Depending 
on the vehicle, the green 

 warning 

light and message on the instrument 

panel go out to confirm that the function 

is deactivated.

2.59

ADAPTIVE CRUISE CONTROL 

(1/7)

When traffic conditions permit (large 

free-flowing road or motorway), the 

adaptive cruise control gives you the 

option of maintaining a chosen speed, 

known as cruise control, adjusta-

ble from 30 mph to 85 mph (50 and 

140 km/h), while keeping a following 

distance from the vehicle in front in the 

same lane.
The sensor has a range of 120 metres.
Note: The driver should take into ac-

count the maximum speed limit in their 

location.
Note: the adaptive cruise control can 

brake the vehicle up to a third of the 

braking capacity. Depending on the 

situation, the driver may need to brake 

harder.

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).
The adaptive cruise control should 

not be used in heavy traffic, on 

winding or slippery roads (black ice, 

aquaplaning, gravel) and during bad 

weather (fog, rain, side winds etc.).
There is a risk of accidents.

Sensor location

Make sure that the sensor 1 is not ob-

scured (by dirt, mud, snow, etc.).

On equipped vehicles, some infor-

mation is given on the head-up dis-

play.
