LANE DEPARTURE PREVENTION (6/6)
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.
System servicing/repairs
- In the event of an impact, the camera alignment may be changed, and its operation may consequently be affected. Deactivate
the function and consult an authorised dealer.
- Any work in the area where the camera is located (repairs, replacements, windscreen 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
Some conditions can disturb or damage the operation of the system, such as:
- windscreen obscured (by dirt, ice, snow, condensation etc.);
- a complex environment (tunnel etc.);
- poor weather conditions (snow, rain, hail, black ice etc.) ;
- poor visibility (night, fog etc.);
- the road markings are irregular or difficult to distinguish (e.g. partially erased, excessive spacing, uneven road surface, etc.)
;
- being dazzled (glaring sun, lights of vehicles travelling in the opposite direction etc.);
- the road is narrow, winding or undulating (tight bends etc.);
- closely following a vehicle travelling in the same lane.
In this case, the function “Lane crossing prevention” may trigger incorrectly or not at all.
Risk of unwanted, incorrect correction or no correction of trajectory.
Deactivating the function
You must disable the function if:
- the area of the camera has been damaged (on the windscreen side or the interior rear-view mirror side);
- the road is slippery (snow, black ice, aquaplaning, gravel etc.) ;
- poor visibility (night, fog etc.);
- the windscreen is cracked or distorted (do not carry out windscreen repairs in this area; have it changed by an Authorised
Dealer);
- the vehicle is towing a trailer or a caravan;
- the vehicle is entering an area with several surface markings (an area with road works etc.).

BLIND SPOT WARNING (4/6)
Operating faults
If the system detects a fault, the mes-
sage “Side radars to check” is displayed
on the instrument panel. Consult an ap-
proved dealer.
-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

2.46
BLIND SPOT WARNING (5/6)
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.
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, radar alignment may be changed, and its operation will consequently be affected. Deactivate the
function and consult an authorised dealer.
- Any work in the area where the radars 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 disturb or damage the operation of the system, such as:
- complex surroundings (metal bridges, tunnels, roads with barriers at the edge, etc.);
- poor weather conditions (snow, hail, black ice, etc.).
Risk of false alarms or absence of warnings
In the event of the system behaving abnormally, deactivate it and consult an authorised dealer.
2.47
BLIND SPOT WARNING (6/6)
Limitation of the system operation
- The radar area should 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.
- When turning into a bend, the radars may temporarily cease to detect vehicles in adjacent lanes.
- The function may warn you late if two other vehicles are approaching from the rear, driving side by side in the adjacent lanes
(i.e. driving on a 3-lane road) at a much higher speed than your vehicle.
- The system may not provide a warning when the other vehicles are travelling at a significantly different speed.
- If the vehicle is being overtaken by a long vehicle (e.g. heavy goods vehicle overtaking at a similar speed to the vehicle) the
system may interrupt the warning before the end of the manoeuvre.
- The vehicle is travelling on a winding road.
Deactivating the function
You must disable the function if:
- the radar area has been damaged (rear bumper);
- the vehicle is fitted with a towbar that is not recognised by the system.

ADVANCED SAFETY (8/17)
Active emergency braking
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. The triggering of this function may be
delayed or prevented when the system detects clear signs of control of the vehicle by the driver (action on the steer-
ing wheel, pedals etc.).
The system cannot be activated:
- if the gear control is in neutral position;
- when the parking brake is activated;
- when the Electronic Stability Program (ESC) has been triggered.
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 function and consult an authorised dealer.
- Any work in the area where the radar and/or camera is located (repairs, replacements, windscreen modifications, etc.) must
be carried out by a qualified professional.
Only an authorised dealer is qualified to service the system.
2.59
ADVANCED SAFETY (9/17)
System disturbance
Some conditions can disturb or damage the operation of the system, such as:
- a complex environment (metal bridge, tunnel etc.);
- poor weather conditions (snow, rain, hail, black ice etc.);
- poor visibility (night, fog etc.);
- poor contrast between the object (vehicle, pedestrian etc.) and the surrounding area (e.g. pedestrian dressed in white lo-
cated in a snowy area etc.) ;
- being dazzled (glaring sun, lights of vehicles travelling in the opposite direction etc.);
- windscreen obscured (by dirt, ice, snow, condensation etc.);
- ...
In these conditions, the system may not react, may warn the driver or may brake inadvertently.
Limitation of the system operation
- Each time the vehicle is started, the system carries out a calibration according to the vehicle surroundings and may be in-
active for a length of time between approximately two to five minutes of driving;
- an oncoming vehicle will not trigger any warning or system action if the conditions in the paragraph “Special features of on-
coming vehicles in the context of a manoeuvre to change direction” are not met (see previous pages);
- the radar and camera zones must be kept clean and free of any modifications in order to ensure the proper operation of the
system;
- the system may not respond to small vehicles such as motorbikes as effectively as to other vehicles;
- the system may not operate properly when the road surface is slippery (rain, snow, black ice, etc.);
- to ensure correct operation, the system needs to distinguish the complete outline of the pedestrian. So the system cannot
detect:
- pedestrians in the darkness or in poor lighting conditions;
- partially visible pedestrians:
- pedestrians less than approximately 80 cm tall;
- pedestrians carrying large objects;
- ...
In these conditions, the system may not react, may warn the driver or may brake inadvertently.
2.60
ADVANCED SAFETY (10/17)
Deactivating the function
You must disable the function if:
- the brake lights are not functioning;
- the area of the camera has been damaged (e.g. on the inside or outside of the windscreen);
- the front of the vehicle was damaged (impact, distortion, scratch on the radar etc.);
- the vehicle is being towed (breakdowns);
- the windscreen is cracked or distorted (do not carry out windscreen repairs in this area; have it changed by an approved
dealer);
- you are not driving on a paved road;
- the vehicle is on a roller bench in a workshop.
In the event of the system behaving abnormally, deactivate it and consult an authorised dealer.
Halting the function
You can halt the active braking function at any time by tapping the accelerator pedal or by turning the steering wheel in a col-
lision avoidance manoeuvre.
