alone in the vehicle if the doors are to be
locked. Therefore, passengers will be
locked inside the vehicle. They could be
trapped in the car in an emergency and will
not be able to get themselves to safety. In-
dividuals locked in the vehicle can be ex-
posed to very high or very low tempera-
tures.

Depending on the time of the year, tem-

peratures inside a locked and closed vehi-
cle can be extremely high or extremely low
resulting in serious injuries and illness or
even death, particularly for young children.

Operation

WARNING

Careless and unsuitable locking, opening
and closing of the rear lid can cause acci-
dents and serious injury.

The rear lid must not be opened when the

reverse or rear fog lights are lit. This may
damage the tail lights.

Do not close the rear lid by pushing it

down with your hand on the rear window.
The glass could smash. Risk of injury!

Ensure the rear lid is locked after closing

it. If not, it may open unexpectedly while
driving.

Closing the rear lid without observing

and ensuring it is clear could cause serious
injury to you and to third parties. Make sure
that no one is in the path of the rear lid.

Never drive with the rear lid open or half-

closed, exhaust gases may penetrate into
the interior of the vehicle. Danger of poi-
soning!

Never leave the vehicle unattended or al-

low children to play inside or next to it, es-
pecially if the rear lid is open. Children
could enter the luggage compartment,
close the rear lid and become trapped. A
locked vehicle can reach extremely high
and low temperatures, depending on the
time of year, thus causing serious injuries,
illness or even death.

CAUTION

Before opening or closing the rear lid, make
sure that there is enough space to open or
close it, e.g. when pulling a trailer or in a
garage.

Note

Before closing the rear lid, make sure that
the key has not been left inside the luggage
compartment.

Note

At outside temperatures of less than 0°C
(+32°F), the pressurised gas struts cannot
always automatically lift the rear lid. In this
case, open the rear lid manually.

ed on, signalling that the function is being
verified. They will switch off after a few sec-
onds.

The 

 warning lamp appears on the dash

panel if the rear lid is open or not properly
closed.

Depending on the vehicle equipment, a sym-
bol may be displayed on the dash panel
screen instead of the warning lamp. The indi-
cation is also visible when the ignition is
switched off. The indication disappears
around 15 seconds after the vehicle has been
locked.

WARNING

If the rear lid is not correctly closed, it
could open unexpectedly when driving and
cause serious injuries.

Always stop immediately and close the

rear lid.

Ensure that the rear lid has been locked

into place by the element on the lock carri-
er when you close it.

WARNING

Observe the safety warnings 

››› 

 in Intro-

duction on page 103

.

Incorrect use of the electric windows can

result in injury.

Never close the rear lid without observing

and ensuring it is clear, to do otherwise
could cause serious injury to you and third
parties. Make sure that no one is in the path
of a window.

If the ignition is switched on, the electric

equipment could be activated with risk of
injury, for example, in the electric windows.

The doors can be locked using the re-

mote control key. This could become an
obstacle for assistance in an emergency
situation.

Therefore always take the key with you

when you leave the vehicle.

The electric windows will work until the

ignition has been switched off and one of
the front doors has been opened.

If necessary, use the safety switch to dis-

able the rear electric windows. Make sure
that they have been disabled.

For safety reasons, you should only use

the remote control open and close func-
tions within about 2 metres of the vehicle.
To avoid injuries, always keep an eye on the
windows when pressing the button to close
them. The windows stop moving as soon as
the button is released.

Note

If the window is not able to close because it
is stiff or because of an obstruction, the
window will automatically open again

››› 

page 114

. If this happens, check why the

window could not be closed before at-
tempting to close it again.

Window anti-trap function

The roll-back function reduces the risk of in-
jury when the electric windows close.

If a window is obstructed when closing au-

tomatically, the window stops at this point
and lowers immediately 

››› 

.

Next, check why the window does not close

before attempting it again.

If you try within the following 10 seconds

and the window closes again with difficulty or
there is an obstruction, the automatic closing
will stop working for 10 seconds.

If the window is still obstructed, the window

will stop at this point.

If there is no obvious reason why the win-

dow cannot be closed, try to close it again by
pulling the tab within ten seconds. The win-
dow closes with maximum force. 

The roll-

back function is now deactivated.

If more than 10 seconds pass, the window

will open fully when you operate one of the
buttons. One-touch closing is reactivated.

WARNING

Observe the safety warnings 

››› 

 in Elec-

trically opening and closing the windows

The roll-back function does not prevent

fingers or other parts of the body getting
pinched against the window frame. Risk of
accident.

Sunroof

Introduction

The sunroof only works when the ignition is
switched on. Once the ignition has been
switched off, you can still open or close the
sunroof for a few minutes provided the driver
door and the front passenger door are not
opened.

114

Opening and closing

WARNING

If the sunroof is used negligently or without
paying due attention, it can cause serious
injury.

Open or close the sunroof and the sun

blind only when no one is in their path of
movement.

Never leave any key inside the vehicle

when exiting.

Never leave a child or any other person

who may need help in the vehicle, espe-
cially if they have access to the vehicle
key. If using they key unattended, they
could lock the vehicle, start the engine,
switch on the ignition and activate the sun-
roof.

After switching off, it is still possible to

open or close the sunroof during a short
space of time provided that neither the
driver nor passenger door is opened.

CAUTION

To prevent damage, during winter tem-

peratures remove any ice or snow that
might be on the car roof before opening the
sunroof or adjusting the tilt position.

Before leaving the vehicle or in case of

rainfall, always close the sunroof. With the
sunroof open or in a tilted position, water
can enter the interior and can cause con-
siderable damage to the electrical system.
As a result, other damage can occur in the
vehicle.

Note

Leaves and other loose objects that ac-

cumulate on the sunroof rails should be
regularly cleaned away either by hand or
with a vacuum.

If the sunroof does not work correctly, the

anti-trap function will not work either. Con-
tact a specialised workshop.

WARNING

If the road is not well lit and other road
users cannot see the vehicle well enough
or at all, accidents may occur.

The automatic dipped beam control



) only switches on the dipped beam

when there are changes in light conditions
but not, for example, when it is foggy.

WARNING

The side lights or daytime running lights
are not bright enough to illuminate the road
ahead and to ensure that other road users
are able to see you.

Always use your dipped beam head

lights if it is raining or if visibility is poor.

Never drive with daytime lights if the road

is not well lit due to weather or lighting
conditions.

On vehicles with rear lights with bulbs,

when activating the daytime running light
the rear lights are not switched on. A vehi-
cle which does not have the rear lights on
may not be visible to other drivers in the
darkness, in the case of heavy rain or in
conditions of poor visibility.

WARNING

If the headlights are set too high and not
used correctly, there is a risk of dazzling or
distracting other road users. This could re-
sult in a serious accident.

Always make sure that the headlights are

correctly adjusted.

Note

The legal requirements regarding the use

of vehicle lights in each country must be
observed.

The dipped beam headlights will only

work with the ignition on. The side lights
come on automatically when the ignition is
turned off.

Convenience turn signals

When the ignition is switched on, move the
lever as far as possible upwards or down-
wards and release the lever. The turn signal
will flash three times.

The convenience turn signals can be activa-
ted and deactivated from the 

Settings >

Lights & Visibility

 menu on the instru-

ment panel screen

Operation

Switch the ignition off.

Move the turn signal lever up or down.

When the parking light is switched on, the
front side light and the tail light on the corre-
sponding side of the vehicle turn on.

WARNING

Improper or lack of use of the turn signals,
or forgetting to deactivate them can con-
fuse other road users. This could result in a
serious accident.

Always give warning when you are going

to change lane, overtake or when turning,
activating the turn signal in good time.

As soon as you have finished changing

lane, overtaking or turning, switch the turn
signal off.

WARNING

Incorrect use of the headlights may cause
accidents and serious injury, as the main
beam may distract or dazzle other drivers.

Note

If the turn signal lever is left on after the

key has been taken out of the ignition lock,
an acoustic signal sounds when the driver
door is opened. This is intended as a re-
minder to switch off the turn signal, unless
you wish to leave the parking light on.

If the convenience turn signals are oper-

ating (three flashes) and the other conven-
ience turn signals are switched on, the ac-
tive part stops flashing and only flashes
once in the new part selected.

The turn signal only works when the igni-

tion is switched on. The hazard warning
lights also work when the ignition is switch-
ed off.

If a turn signal on the vehicle or trailer is

faulty, the warning lamp flashes twice as
fast as usual.

The 

main beam headlights

 can only be

switched on if the dipped beam headlights
are already on.

In cold or damp weather conditions, the

headlights, tail lights and turn signals may
mist up inside temporarily. This is normal
and in no way effects the useful life of the
vehicle lighting system.

The parking light does not activate auto-

matically if the left- or right-hand turn sig-
nal is left on and the ignition is disconnec-
ted.

Main beam assist (Light Assist)

The main beam assist acts within the limits of
the system and depending on environmental
and traffic conditions. Once switched on, the
system is activated as of a speed of about 60

km/h (37 mph) and is deactivated below
about 30 km/h (18 mph) 

››› 

.

When the system is activated and the cam-
era detects other vehicles that may be daz-
zled, the main beam is automatically switch-
ed off. Otherwise, the main beam is automati-
cally switched on.

The main beam assist generally detects illu-
minated areas and deactivates the main
beam when passing through a town, for ex-
ample.

Switching the main beam assist on 

Turn on the ignition and turn the light switch

to the position

the main beam. The main beam assist will
then be deactivated.

System limitations

In the following cases, the main beam head-
light must be switched off manually because
the main beam assist will not disconnect it on
time or disconnect it at all:

On roads with insufficient lighting with very

reflective signs

If road users are insufficiently lit up, e.g. pe-

destrians or cyclists.

On closed curves, when the traffic in the

opposite direction is partially hidden, on pro-
nounced slopes or inclinations.

On roads with traffic in the opposite direc-

tion and with a central reservation barrier
where the driver can see over it e.g. lorry driv-
ers.

In the event of fog, snow or heavy rain

In the event of dust or sand storms

If the windscreen is damaged in the cam-

era's field of vision.

If the camera's field of vision is misted up,

dirty or covered by a sticker, snow or ice.

If the camera is damaged or if the power

supply has been cut off.

WARNING

The convenience features of the main
beam assist should not encourage the tak-
ing of risks. The system is not a replace-
ment for driver concentration.

You are always in control of the main

beam and adapting it to the light, visibility
and traffic conditions.

It is possible that the main beam head-

light control does not recognise all driving
situations and is limited under certain cir-
cumstances.

When the field of vision of the camera is

dirty, covered or damaged, operation of
the main beam control may be affected.
This also applies when changes are made
to the vehicle lighting system, for example,
if additional headlights are installed.

CAUTION

To avoid affecting the operation of the sys-
tem, take the following points into consid-
eration:

Clean the field of vision of the camera

regularly and make sure it is free of snow
and ice.

Do not cover the field of vision of the

camera.

Check that the windscreen is not dam-

aged in the area of the field of vision of the
camera.

Note

The headlight flasher can be turned on

and off manually at any time with the turn
signal and main beam lever 

››› 

page 119

.

If there are objects that radiate light in

the camera's area of influence, e.g. a port-
able navigation system, this may affect the
operation of the main beam assist system.

Cornering lights

Dynamic cornering lights (AFS)

The adaptive headlights only operate when
the dipped beam is on and at speeds of over
10 km/h (6 mph). On bends, the adaptive
headlights automatically improve lighting on
the road ahead.

The adaptive cornering lights can be activa-
ted or deactivated from the infotainment sys-
tem.

Static cornering lights

When turning slowly to change direction or
going round a tight bend, the static cornering
lights automatically come on. The static cor-
nering lights only work at speeds of less than
40 km/h (25 mph).

The static cornering lights may be incorpora-
ted into the fog lights or the front headlights,
depending upon the equipment.
