DRIVER CORRECTION DEVICES AND AIDS 

(3/4)

 

Emergency brake assist

This system supplements the ABS 

and helps reduce vehicle stopping dis-

tances.
The system allows an emergency brak-

ing situation to be detected when the 

brake pedal is pressed. In this case, the 

braking assistance immediately devel-

ops maximum power and may trigger 

ABS regulation.
ABS braking is maintained as long as 

the brake pedal is applied.

Hazard warning lights switching on

Depending on the vehicle, these may 

light up in the event of sudden decel-

eration.

Braking anticipation

Depending on the vehicle, when you 

rapidly release the accelerator, the 

system anticipates the braking ma-

noeuvre in order to reduce stopping 

distances.
When using the cruise control:

–  if you use the accelerator, when you 

release it, the system may be trig-

gered;

–  if you do not use the accelerator, the 

system will not be triggered.

Operating faults

When the system detects an operating 
fault, the warning light 

© 

 comes 

on on the instrument panel.
Consult an approved dealer.

These functions are an ad-

ditional aid in the event of 

critical driving conditions, 

enabling the vehicle behav-

iour to be adapted to suit the driving 

conditions.
The functions do not take the place 

of the driver. They do not increase 

the vehicle’s limits and should 

not encourage you to drive more 

quickly. Therefore, they can under 

no circumstances replace the vigi-

lance or responsibility of the driver 

when manoeuvring the vehicle (the 

driver must always be ready for 

sudden incidents which may occur 

when driving).

2.29

DRIVER CORRECTION DEVICES AND AIDS 

(4/4)

Hill start assistance

Depending on the gradient of the in-

cline, this system assists the driver 

when starting on a hill. It prevents the 

vehicle from rolling backwards, de-

pending on the slope, by automatically 

applying the brakes when the driver lifts 

his/her foot off the brake pedal to de-

press the accelerator pedal.
It only operates when the gear lever is 

in a position other than neutral (other 

than  N or P for automatic transmis-

sions) and the vehicle is completely 

stationary (brake pedal depressed)
The system holds the vehicle for ap-

proximately 2 seconds. The brakes are 

then gradually released (the vehicle will 

move according to the slope).

The hill start assistance 

system cannot completely 

prevent the vehicle from 

rolling backwards in all sit-

uations (extremely steep gradients 

etc.).
In all cases, the driver may depress 

the brake pedal to prevent the vehi-

cle from rolling backwards.
The hill start assistance function 

should not be used for prolonged 

stops: use the brake pedal.
This function is not designed to im-

mobilise the vehicle permanently.
If necessary, use the brake pedal to 

stop the vehicle.
The driver must remain particularly 

vigilant when driving on slippery or 

low-grip surfaces.
Risk of serious injury.

2.30

LANE DEPARTURE WARNING 

(1/2)

This lane departure warning system no-

tifies 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.

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 obs-

cured 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, warning light 

 on the instrument panel goes out to indicate that 

the function will not operate (lines not detected).
Under no circumstances should this function replace the driver’s care or res-

ponsibility whilst performing manoeuvres.

2.31

LANE DEPARTURE WARNING 

(2/2)

Deactivation

Press the switch 1. The warning light 2 

in the switch 1 goes out.

Operating faults

In the event of a malfunction, the warn-

ing light on the button 1 remains off, 

and warning lights

 and 

 

come on on the instrument panel along-

side a beep. Please consult an autho-

rised dealer.

When a line is crossed and the indica-

tors have not been activated, the func-

tion alerts the driver through warning 

light 

 on the instrument panel, 

and a beep.

Conditions for non-activation 

of alerts

–  Indicators activated or having been 

activated less than approximately 

four seconds prior to departing from 

the lane;

–  Very fast lane departure;

–  Driving continuously on a line;

–  On bends, the function allows for 

slightly cutting the bend;

–  dirt covering the windscreen camera;

– ...

Activation

Press the switch 1: the warning light 2 

integrated on the switch 1 comes on.
The function sounds the alarm if:
–  the warning light lighted integrated 

on the switch 1 is on;

and

–  the vehicle speed is greater than ap-

proximately 45 mph (70 km/h);

and

–  lines are detected.

Warning light 

 comes on on the 

instrument panel to notify the driver.

Switching on

Press the side switch 1 

. Indicator 

light  6 comes on, lit orange, and the 

message “LIMIT” appears on the instru-

ment panel, accompanied by dashes to 

indicate that the speed limiter function 

is activated and waiting to store a lim-

ited speed. 

To store the current speed, press 

switch 2 (+): the limited speed will re-

place the dashes.

The minimum stored speed is 20 mph 

(30 km/h).

Controls

1  Main “On/Off” switch.
2  Limit speed activation, storage and 

increase switch (+).

3  Decreasing the limit speed (-).
4  Activation and recall of memorised 

limit speed (R).

5  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.

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 

limit 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
If driving up or down a steep gradient, 

the system is unable to maintain the 

limited speed: the memorised speed 

flashes on the instrument panel and 

a beep sounds at regular intervals to 

inform you.

Varying the limit speed

The limit speed may be changed by re-

peatedly pressing:
– switch 2 (+) to increase speed;
– switch 3 (-) to reduce 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”).

SPEED LIMITER 

(2/3)

The speed limiter function is 

in no way linked to the brak-

ing system.

SPEED LIMITER 

(3/3)

Recalling the limit speed

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

called by pressing switch 4 ((R)).

Putting the function on 

standby

The speed limiter function is suspended 

when you press switch 5 (O). In this 

case, the limit speed remains stored 

and the message “MEM” accompanied 

by this speed appears on the instru-

ment 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 put on 

standby, pressing switch 2 (+) re-

activates the function without taking 

into account the stored speed: it is 

the speed at which the vehicle is 

moving that is taken into account.

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).

This function is an addi-

tional driving aid. It does not 

take the place of the driver.
Therefore, it can under no 

circumstances replace the driver’s 

responsibility 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 slip-

pery roads (black ice, aquaplan-

ing, gravel) and during bad weather 

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

The cruise control function 

is in no way linked to the 

braking system.

Controls

1  Main “On/Off” switch.
2  Cruising speed activation, storage 

and increase switch (+).

3  Decreasing cruising speed (-).
4  Activation with recall of saved cruis-

ing speed (R).

5  Switch the function to standby (with 

cruising speed saved) (O).

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 must 

keep your feet close to the 

pedals in order to react in 

an emergency.

Activating cruise control

At a steady speed (above 18 mph (30 

km/h approximately)) press switch 2 

or (+): the function is activated and the 

current speed is saved.
The cruising speed replaces the dashes 

and the cruise control is confirmed by 

the appearance of warning light 6 lit 

green, as well as warning light 7.

Switching on

Press switch 1 side 

.

Indicator light 7 comes on, lit green, 

and the message “CRUISE” appears 

on the instrument panel, accompanied 

by dashes to indicate that the cruise 

control function is activated and waiting 

to store a cruising speed.

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.

2.38

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.

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.
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.

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 re-

mains stored and the message “MEM” 

appears on the instrument panel.
Standby is confirmed when indicator 
light 

 goes out.

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.

Operating principle

Ultrasonic detectors, installed in the 

rear bumper (depending on the vehi-

cle), measure the distance between 

the vehicle and an obstacle whilst re-

versing.
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 30 centi-

metres from the obstacle.
NB: make sure that the ultrasonic sen-

sors are not obscured (by dirt, mud, 

snow, etc.).

PARKING DISTANCE CONTROL 

(1/2)

Operation

When reverse gear is selected, most 

objects which are less than approxi-

mately 1.20 metres from the rear of the 

vehicle are detected, a beep sounds 

and, depending on the vehicle, the dis-

play 1 comes on.

This function is an additional aid that indicates the distance between the vehicle and an obstacle whilst reversing, 

using sound signals.
Under no circumstances should it replace the driver’s care or responsibility whilst reversing.

The driver should always look out for sudden hazards during driving: 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 manoeuvring.

Deactivating the system

Press switch 2 to deactivate the system:
The indicator light built into the switch 

lights up to remind you that the system 

is deactivated.
Pressing the switch again will reacti-

vate the system and switch off the in-

dicator light.
Depending on the vehicle, you can 

deactivate the parking distance control 

from the touch-screen. Please see the 

equipment instructions for further infor-

mation.

An impact to the under-

side of the vehicle while 

manoeuvring (e.g.: stri-

king 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 appro-

ved Dealer.

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 additio-

nal aid. It cannot, therefore, 

under any circumstances 

replace the vigilance or the 

responsibility of the driver.

The driver should always pay at-

tention to sudden incidents during 

driving: always ensure that there 

are no moving obstacles (such as 

a child, animal, pram, bicycle, etc.) 

or small, narrow objects such as 

stones or posts in your path when 

manoeuvring.

The screen shows a reverse image.

The frames are a representation projected onto flat ground; this information 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 warning light
