Switching on

Press switch 5. Indicator light 


comes on, lit green, and the message 

“Adaptive cruise ctrl” appears on the 

instrument panel, accompanied by 

dashes to indicate that the cruise con-

trol function is activated and waiting to 

store a cruising speed.

Activating cruise control

At a steady speed (above approxi-

mately 31 mph (50 km/h)), press 

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

vated and the current speed is memo-


The cruising speed replaces the dashes 

and cruise control is confirmed by the 

appearance of the message “Adaptive 

cruise ctrl” and the indicator light 


If you try to activate the function below 

31 mph (50 km/h) or above 86.8 mph 

(140 km/h), the message “Invalid 

speed” is displayed and the function will 

remain inactive.

Adjusting the following 


Pressing switch 6 multiple times ad-

justs the following distance.



Once a cruising speed is memorised 

and the cruise control function is active, 

you may lift your foot off the accelera-

tor pedal.
If a following distance is stored and a 

vehicle travelling slower than yours is 

detected by the system in your lane, 

your vehicle will brake (with the brake 

lights on) and adapt its speed to that of 

the vehicle in front, respecting the fol-

lowing distance selected previously.

If your speed is lower than the cruise 

control and you wish to perform an 

overtaking manoeuvre, activating the 

direction indicator will provide acceler-

ation enabling the overtaking manoeu-


Please note that you are 

strongly advised to keep 

your feet close to the pedals 

in order to react in an emer-




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.

Varying the following 


You can vary the following distance 

from the vehicle in front at any time by 

pressing switch 6 repeatedly.
Horizontal following bars will be dis-

played on the instrument panel, indicat-

ing the following distance selected:

– one bar for a short distance (cor-

responding to a following time of 

around one second);

–  two bars for a medium distance;

–  three bars for a long distance (cor-

responding to a following time of 

around two seconds).

Choosing the distance should depend 

on the traffic, the laws in your country, 

and on the weather conditions.
If a vehicle is detected by the system in 

your lane, an outline A of a vehicle will 

appear above the following bars.









Exceeding the cruising speed

The cruising speed may be exceeded 

at any time by depressing the accelera-

tor pedal.

When exceeding this speed, the cruis-

ing speed and the following bars show 

red and the cruising speed flashes on 

the instrument panel: the distance con-

trol function is no longer activated.

Then, release the accelerator: cruise 

and distance control will automatically 

reactivate unless the function has been 

set to standby.

Putting the function on 


The function is set to standby if:
–  you press switch 4 (O);
–  you depress the brake pedal;
–  you depress the clutch pedal;
–  you use the gear lever;
– the vehicle speed is lower than 

31 mph (50 km/h) or over 86.8 mph 

(140 km/h);

–  the engine speed is too low or too 


–  certain driver correction devices and 

aids are triggered (ABS, ESC, etc.)

In the latter three cases, the message 

“Adaptive cruise Adaptive cruise” is dis-

played on the instrument panel when 

the function is set to standby.
Standby is confirmed by the display of 

the cruising speed in grey and the mes-

sage “Adaptive cruise ctrl”.

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 around 30 mph (50 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 “Adaptive cruise ctrl”.
When the cruise control is set to 

standby, pressing switch 2, side a (+), 

reactivates the cruise control function 

without taking into account the stored 

speed: it is the speed at which the vehi-

cle is moving that is taken into account.




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 


Please note that you are 

strongly advised to keep 

your feet close to the pedals 

in order to react in an emer-


Note: if the speed previously stored is 

much higher than the current speed, 

the vehicle will accelerate to reach this 

Under certain conditions (coming up 

behind a vehicle moving more slowly, 

rapid change of lane of vehicles in 

front, etc.), the system may not have 

time to respond and may emit a beep 

alongside the alert A when the situation 

requires the driver’s attention, or the 

alert B when the situation requires im-

mediate action from the driver.
React accordingly and perform the ap-

propriate manoeuvres.




Switching off the function

The cruise control function is deacti-

vated if you press switch 5: in this case 

a speed is no longer stored. The green 

 indicator light and the message 

”Adaptive cruise ctrl” on the instrument 

panel go out to confirm that the function 

is deactivated.




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, regardless of the system indications.

The system should under no circumstances be taken to be an obstacle detector or an anti-collision system.

System servicing/repairs
–  In the event of an impact, the sensor alignment may become changed, and its operation will consequently be affected. 

Deactivate the function, then consult an authorised dealer.

–  Any work in the area where the radar is located (repairs, replacements, touching up of paintwork) must be carried out by a 

qualified professional.

System disturbance
In a complex environment (metal bridge, etc.), the system may be affected.
Risk of inadvertent braking.




Limitation of the system operation
– A vehicle travelling in the opposite direction will not trigger any alert or any action on the system operation.

– The sensor area should be kept clean and free of any modifications in order to ensure the proper operation of the 


–  Fixed obstacles (vehicles at a standstill, traffic jams, toll booths, etc.) or objects travelling at low speed or of a small size 

(motorbikes, bicycles, pedestrians, etc.) may not be detected by the system.

–  A vehicle entering the same lane will only be detected once it has entered the detection zone. Sudden or late braking may 

then take place.

–  When entering a bend or curve, the sensor may temporarily no longer detect the vehicle in front, and this may lead to ac-


–  When exiting a curve, the detection of the vehicle in front may be affected or delayed. Sudden or late braking may then take 


–  A slower vehicle travelling in an adjacent lane may be detected and cause a slowing down if one of the two vehicles is trav-

elling too close to the lane of the other.

–  The system is deactivated below around 20 mph (40 km/h). Drivers must react accordingly.

–  Sudden changes in situation are not instantly taken into account by the system. Drivers must remain vigilant at all times and 

under all circumstances.

Deactivating the function
The function should be deactivated if:

–  the brake lights are not functioning;

–  the front of the vehicle has undergone an impact or been damaged;

–  the vehicle is being towed (breakdowns);

–  traffic is heavy;

–  the vehicle is travelling in a tunnel;

–  the vehicle is travelling on a windy road;

–  the vehicle is travelling on a slippery road or in poor weather conditions (fog, snow, rain, side winds etc.).
If the driver notices abnormal system behaviour, please consult an authorised dealer.




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-

The parking distance control system 

is only activated when the vehicle is 

driven at a speed below approximately 

6 mph (10 km/h).

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 look out 

for sudden hazards during driv-

ing: always ensure that there are 

no moving obstacles (such as a 

child, animal, pram or bicycle, etc.) 

or small, narrow objects such as 

stones or posts in your path when 


Special features

Ensure that the ultrasonic sensors indi-

cated by arrows 1 are not obscured (by 

dirt, mud, snow, etc.).




Most objects located less near the 

front, rear and sides of the vehicle are 

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.







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

ings in progress;

–  B: analysis of the vehicle surround-

ings carried out.


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.



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.




–  press the switch 5 OK;

–  using the control 6, select the set-

tings to be changed;

–  press the switch 5 OK.



When the vehicle is being driven 

at a speed below approximately 

6.2 mph (10 km/h), certain noises 

(motorcycle, lorry, pneumatic drill 

etc.) may trigger the beeping sound 

of the parking distance control.


System sound

Automatic deactivation of the 

parking distance control

The system deactivates:
–  when the vehicle speed is above ap-

proximately 6.2 mph (10 km/h);

–  depending on the model, when the 

vehicle is stationary for more than 

approximately 5 seconds and an ob-

stacle is detected (such as when in a 

traffic jam, etc.);

–  when the vehicle is in neutral for 

manual gearboxes, or in position N 

or P for automatic gearboxes.

Operating faults

When the system detects an operating 

fault, a beep sounds for approximately 

3 seconds each time reverse gear is se-

lected and is accompanied by the mes-

sage “Check parking sensor” shown on 

the instrument panel. Please consult an 

authorised dealer.





Moving into reverse gear, the camera 1 

located on the boot lid or, depending on 

the vehicle, on the tailgate provides a 

view of the area behind the vehicle on 

the multimedia screen 2, accompanied 

by one or two moving or fixed guide 

lines 3 and 4.
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.



Special feature

Make sure that the camera is not ob-

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

cated by arrows 3 are not obscured (by 

dirt, mud, snow, etc.).



Choice of manoeuvre

The system can perform four types of 

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


From the multifunction screen, select 

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

after 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.




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, indi-

cated by a small letter “P”. Drive slowly, 

with the indicators activated on the side 

of the space, until the message “Stop” 

is displayed, alongside a beep. 
The space is then indicated on the mul-

tifunction screen by a capital “P”.
