WARNSYSTEM „TOTER WINKEL“

WARNING

Blind spot assist is a supplement to, not a replacement for, a safe driving style and use of the door mirrors and rear-view mirror. The system may not function at all speeds, or in all weather and road conditions. Drive safely at all times, and use the door mirrors and rear-view mirror to avoid accidents.

WARNING

Do not use blind spot assist when a trailer is connected. The trailer may provide miscalculations or false indications to the feature, and can lead to accidents, potentially causing serious injury or death.

NOTES

Blind spot assist disables when the vehicle's speed falls below 60 km/h, or 40 mph.

NOTES

Blind spot assist disables when the vehicle is negotiating a tight radius bend.

NOTES

If the blind spot monitor system is disabled, blind spot assist also disables.

Blind spot assist is an enhancement of the blind spot monitor system. The feature uses the same radar as the blind spot monitor system, on each side of the vehicle. The feature determines the possible risk of a side collision when a lane change manoeuvre is initiated.

If a lane change manoeuvre is initiated while a risk is detected, the relevant door mirror displays a flashing vehicle warning icon. At the same time, a rotational force automatically applies to the steering wheel to counter the lane change. The instrument panel Driver assistance view displays a warning when a rotational force is applied to the steering wheel.

The applied force indicates that a steering correction is required to avoid the risk of a collision. The rotational force can still be overridden to make a lane change.

While a risk continues to be detected, the blind spot monitor system's amber vehicle warning icon illuminates or flashes.

NOTES

The relevant door mirror displays an illuminated vehicle warning icon, if the direction indicator is not selected. If the direction indicator is selected, the relevant door mirror displays a flashing vehicle warning icon.

Blind spot assist can be enabled or disabled via the Driver assistance menu, in the instrument panel. See INSTRUMENTENTAFEL MENÜ.
