9°C 12:00






External temperature 

As ice formation is related 

to climatic exposure, local 

air humidity and temperature, the 

external temperature alone is not 

sufficient to detect ice.

External temperature 


Special note:
When the outside temperature is – 3°C 

to + 3°C, the °C characters flash (sig-

nalling a risk of ice on the road).




Resetting the clock B

The time setting is done automatically.

You may, however, change this.
On the display B, select “Menu”, 

“System ” then “Time settings”.

Set the hours and minutes.

Then confirm your choice.





Height and reach adjustment

Pull lever 1 and move the steering 

wheel to the required position.
Then, push the lever back fully, beyond 

the point of resistance to lock the steer-

ing wheel.
Make sure that the steering wheel is 

correctly locked.

Power-assisted steering

The variable power-assisted steering 

system is equipped with an electronic 

control system which alters the level of 

assistance to suit the vehicle speed.
Steering is made easier during parking 

manoeuvres (for added comfort) whilst 

the force needed to steer increases 

progressively as the speed rises (for 

enhanced safety at high speeds).


For safety reasons, only 

adjust the steering wheel 

when the vehicle is station-



Never switch off the igni-

tion when travelling down-

hill, and avoid doing so in 

normal driving (assistance 

is not provided).

Never leave the steering wheel on 

full lock when the vehicle is station-

With the engine switched off, or if 

there is a system fault, it is still pos-

sible to turn the steering wheel. The 

force required will be greater.
A noise may be heard when the 

steering wheel is moved quickly. 

This is normal.



Interior rear view mirror

Its position can be adjusted.
When driving at night, to avoid being 

dazzled by the headlights of the vehicle 

behind, depress the little lever located 

behind rear view mirror 2.

Door mirrors with electrical

ally closer than they appear. 
For your safety, take this 

into account in order to correctly 

assess the distance before any ma-


For safety reasons, carry 

out any adjustments when 

the vehicle is stationary.

Heated door mirrors

When the engine is started, mirror de-

icing is activated with the rear screen 


Folding door mirrors

Move button 1 to position D to fold the 

door mirrors in. To reset them for dri-

ving, return to position B.
If you fold the door mirrors in manually 

before resetting them to driving posi-

tion  B, you must first turn button 1 to 

position D.





Press steering wheel boss A.

Headlight flasher

Pull stalk 1 towards you to flash the 



Hazard warning lights

Press switch 2. This switch il-

luminates all four direction indicators 

and the side-mounted indicator lights 

simultaneously. It must only be used in 

an emergency to warn drivers of other 

vehicles that you have had to stop in 

an area where stopping is prohibited or 

unexpected or that you are obliged to 

drive under special conditions.
Depending on the vehicle, the hazard 

warning lights may come on automati-

cally under heavy deceleration. You can 

switch them off by pressing switch 2.

Direction indicators

Move stalk 1 parallel to the steering 

wheel and in the direction you are going 

to turn it.

One-touch mode
When driving, it is possible that the 

steering wheel may not be turned suf-

ficiently to return the stalk automatically 

to its starting position.

In this case, briefly turn stalk 1 to the in-

termediate position, then release it: the 

stalk returns to its original point and the 

indicator light flashes three times.






Electric vehicles are particularly quiet. 

This system enables you to warn 

people of your presence – especially 

pedestrians and cyclists.
The system is activated automatically 

when the engine is started. The sound 

triggers when the vehicle speed is be-

tween 1 and 20 mph.

Deactivating the system

With the engine running, press the 

switch 1 to deactivate the function. The 

warning light 2 in the switch 1 comes

proximately 20 mph (30 km/h);

–  The system is activated automati-

cally when the vehicle is being driven 

at a speed below approximately 

20 mph (30 km/h).


Warning noise selection

–  Keep switch 1 pressed down.

The various sounds will be played in 


–  release switch 1 on the sound of 

your choice.





Before driving at night, check that the electrical equipment is operating

its normal load). As a general precaution, check that the lights are not ob-

scured (by dirt, mud, snow or objects being transported).
