2.111
ADAPTIVE CRUISE CONTROL (12/13)
This function is an additional driving aid. It can under no circumstances replace the driver’s responsibility to respect
speed limits and safe distances and to be vigilant.
The driver must always be in control of the vehicle.
The driver must always adapt their speed to the surroundings and driving conditions, regardless of system indications.
Except for lines delimiting lanes, traffic indicators (traffic lights, signs, pedestrian crossings etc.) are not recognised by the
system. These do not trigger any alert or reaction by the system.
The system should under no circumstances be taken to be an obstacle detector or an anti-collision system.
The adaptive cruise control must only be used on a motorway (or multi-lane road separated by a barrier).
System servicing/repairs
- In the event of an impact, the radar and/or camera alignment may be changed and its operation may consequently be af-
fected. Deactivate the system and consult an authorised dealer.
- Any work in the proximity of the radar and/or camera (replacements, repairs, windscreen modifications, paintwork etc.) must
be carried out by a qualified professional.
Only an authorised dealer is qualified to service the system.
Deactivating the function
You must disable the function if:
- the vehicle is travelling on a windy road;
- the vehicle is being towed (breakdowns);
- the vehicle is towing a trailer or a caravan;
- the vehicle is being driven in a tunnel or close to a metallic structure;
- the vehicle arrives at a toll point, a roadwork area or on a narrow lane;
- the vehicle is being driven up or down a very steep slope;
- the visibility is poor (glaring sun, fog etc.);
- the vehicle is being driven on a slippery road surface (rain, snow, gravel, etc.);
- the weather conditions are poor (rain, snow, side winds, etc.);
- the radar area has been damaged (impacts etc.) ;
- the camera area has been damaged (e.g. on the inside or outside of the windscreen);
- the windscreen is cracked or distorted.
In the event of the system behaving abnormally, deactivate it and consult an authorised dealer.
2.112
ADAPTIVE CRUISE CONTROL (13/13)
In the event of system disturbance
Some conditions can disturb or damage the operation of the system, such as:
- the windscreen or radar area is obscured (by dirt, ice, snow, condensation, number plate etc.);
- a complex environment (tunnel etc.);
- poor weather conditions (snow, heavy rain, hail, black ice, etc.);
- poor visibility (night, fog etc.);
- poor contrast between the vehicle preceding it and the surrounding area (e.g. white vehicle in a snowy area etc.) ;
- being dazzled (glaring sun, lights of vehicles travelling in the opposite direction etc.);
- narrow, winding or undulating road (tight bends etc.) ;
- a slower vehicle with a significant difference in speed;
- use of mats not adapted to the vehicle. On the driver’s side, only use mats suitable for the vehicle, attached with the pre-
fitted components, and check the fitting regularly. Do not lay one mat on top of another. There is a risk of wedging the
pedals.
In these cases, the system may wrongly intervene.
Risk of unwanted braking or acceleration.
Many unforeseen situations may affect the system operation. Certain objects or vehicles that can appear in the camera or
radar detection zone may be interpreted by the system incorrectly, possibly leading to inappropriate acceleration or braking.
You should always be attentive to sudden events that might occur while you are driving. Always keep your vehicle
under control by keeping your feet near the pedals, so that you are ready to act in any event.

Ultrasonic sensors, indicated

measure the distance between the ve-

This function is an additional driving aid.
Under no circumstances should it replace the driver’s care or responsibil-
ity whilst reversing.
The driver should always be ready for sudden incidents while driving: always
ensure that there are no small, narrow moving obstacles (such as a child, animal,
pushchair, bicycle, stone, post, etc.) in the blind spot when manoeuvring.

System servicing/repairs
- In the event of an impact, the alignment of the sensors may be altered and their operation may consequently be affected.
Deactivate the function and consult an authorised dealer.
- Any work in the area where the sensors are located (repairs, replacements, etc.) must be carried out by a qualified profes-
sional.
Only an authorised dealer is qualified to service the system.
System disturbance
Some conditions can disrupt or damage the operation of the system, for example:
- poor weather conditions (rain, snow, hail, black ice, etc.);
- in the event of exposure to strong electromagnetic waves (under high-voltage lines, etc.);
- some types of noise (motorcycle, lorry, pneumatic drill etc.);
- fitting an unsuitable towing ball or hook.
Risk of false alarms or absence of warnings
In the event of the system behaving abnormally, deactivate it and consult an authorised dealer.
2.119
PARKING DISTANCE CONTROL (7/7)
Limitation of the system operation
- The area around the sensors must be kept clean and free of any modifications in order to ensure the proper operation of the
system.
- Small objects moving close to the vehicle (motorcycles, bicycles, pedestrians, etc.) may not be recognised by the system.
- The system may not detect objects that are too close to the vehicle.
- The system may not provide a warning when the other vehicles or objects are travelling at a significantly different speed.
- During a change in trajectory, during a manoeuvre, the system may report obstacles with a delay.
- When the vehicle is towing a trailer, the rear Park Assist system must be deactivated
Deactivating the function
You must disable the function if:
- the area around the sensors has been damaged (rear bumper);
- the vehicle is equipped with a towing device that is not recognised by the system (ball, hook, adapter, etc.).

This function is an additional driving aid. 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. Make sure that the manoeuvre complies
with the applicable traffic regulations in your location.
The driver should always be ready for sudden incidents while driving: always ensure that there are no small, narrow
moving obstacles (such as a child, animal, pushchair, bicycle, stone, post, towing equipment, etc.) in the blind spot when
manoeuvring.
System servicing/repairs
- In the event of an impact, the alignment of the sensors may be changed and their operation may consequently be affected.
Deactivate the function and consult an authorised dealer.
- Any work in the area where the sensors are located (repairs, replacements, exterior trim modifications, etc.) must be carried
out by a qualified professional.
Only an authorised dealer is qualified to service the system.
In the event of system disturbance
Certain conditions may disrupt or impair operation of the system, such as poor weather conditions (snow, hail, ice, etc.).
In the event of the system behaving abnormally, deactivate it and consult an authorised dealer.
Risk of erroneous false alarms.
Limitations of the system operation
- The system cannot detect objects located in the sensor blind spots.
- Always visually check that the parking space proposed by the system is still available and contains no obstacles.
- The system should not be used when towing a trailer or when there is a towing or load carrying system on the vehicle or on
surrounding vehicles.
