WARNING

The lane departure warning system is a driving aid only. The driver is responsible for driving with due care and attention, and in manner which is safe for the vehicle, its occupants, and other road users. The driver should still observe all road markings. The driver should still observe all road markings. Driver distraction can lead to accidents, potentially causing serious injury or death.

WARNING

Low tyre pressure and/or steering tracking out of alignment affects the performance of the lane departure warning system. Both of these conditions may apply an effect where constant steering adjustment is required. Drive safely at all times, and use the door mirrors and rear-view mirror to avoid accidents.

The lane departure warning button is located in the lower switch panel at the driver's side of the fascia. Press to enable or disable the system. See FAHRERBEDIENELEMENTE.

When the system is enabled, the lane departure warning icon illuminates in the instrument panel to confirm operation. See SPURVERLASSENSWARNER (ROT).

The vehicle’s position within the lane is displayed graphically via the lane departure warning icon. As the vehicle moves within the lane, the icon displays any change of direction by changing colour. Green indicates that the vehicle's position within the lane is being tracked. Red indicates that the vehicle is too close or has crossed the lane markings. Grey indicates that the system is not tracking the vehicle's position within the lanes.

Additionally, the driver can display the Driver assistance view in the instrument panel. See INSTRUMENTENTAFEL MENÜ.

As the vehicle moves within the lane, the Driver assistance view displays any change of direction by changing colour. White indicates that the vehicle's position within the lane is being tracked. Red indicates that the vehicle is too close or has crossed the lane markings.

To do this, select Lane Keep Assist (LKA) via the Driver assistance menu, in the instrument panel. See INSTRUMENTENTAFEL MENÜ.

NOTES

The lane departure warning system only provides warnings to the driver. The system does not assist in changing the direction of the vehicle nor does it operate any of the vehicle's systems.

NOTES

The lane departure warning system does not detect unmarked edges of the road.

The lane departure warning system is active between 60 km/h (37 mph) and 180 km/h (112 mph). Warnings are suppressed if driver intervention is detected, as follows:

  • Operation of the brakes.

  • Activation of the appropriate direction indicator.

Lane departure warning system limitations:
  • The lane in use must be wider than 2.5 m or less than 5.2 m.

  • Not active in off-road conditions.

  • Not available when the sand or mud-ruts terrain response programs are selected. See BETRIEB DER FAHRBETRIEBSARTEN.

The performance of the lane departure warning system may also be affected in the following conditions:

  • Driving in adverse conditions. For example, heavy fog, rain, or snow.

  • Driving over worn, damaged, or temporary lane markings, e.g., road works.

  • Driving toward very bright lights.

  • Driving very close to another vehicle.

  • Driving in tight deviations of the roads and their gradients.

If the system detects a fault, or is not available, a message is displayed in the instrument panel. If the fault does not clear after the ignition is switched off and on again, consult a retailer/authorised repairer.
