The driver is always responsible for calculating the correct distances and manoeuvring the vehicle to a trailer’s tow hitch. Failure to do so may result in damage to the vehicle and trailer.


The hitch assist system displays an approximation for the vehicle’s tow ball position and the required trajectory to a trailer’s tow hitch.


Accuracy of the hitch assist system is affected by the height of the trailer’s tow hitch compared to the height of the vehicle’s tow ball. The maximum height difference should be no more than 3 cm.

Hitch assist displays a rear-view image to aid the process of reversing the vehicle to a trailer's tow hitch.

Operate as follows:

  1. Select Reverse (R) to automatically display a rear-view image on the touchscreen.

  2. Dependent on the specification of the vehicle’s camera system, use one of the following options:

    Touch the hitch assist icon to display the guidance lines for vehicles with a single rear camera system.

    Touch the settings icon to display the CAMERA SETTINGS menu, for vehicles with a surround camera system. Select ON from the Hitch Assist option, to display the guidance lines.

  3. Reverse the vehicle toward the trailer.

  4. As the vehicle closes to within 600 mm of the trailer's tow hitch, an automated zoom feature operates to enlarge the view.

  5. Continue the manoeuvre until the vehicle and trailer are as close as required.
