SPURHALTEASSISTENT (LKA)

WARNING

Lane keep assist is a driving aid only. The driver is responsible for driving with due care and attention, and in a manner which is safe for the vehicle, its occupants, and other road users. 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 keep assist feature. 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.

Lane keep assist is an enhancement of the lane departure warning system.

When the lane departure warning system is switched on, the lane keep assist feature can be selected via the Driver assistance menu, in the instrument panel. See INSTRUMENTENTAFEL MENÜ.

The instrument panel menu allows the driver to select between Steering Vibrate or Steering Assist. To do this, select Lane Keep Assist (LKA) via the Driver assistance menu, in the instrument panel. See INSTRUMENTENTAFEL MENÜ.

When the ignition is switched off and on again, the last selection is reinstated.

Lane keep assist aids the driver to keep the vehicle in the current carriageway lane, e.g., while driving on a multi-lane road. If the vehicle becomes too close to lane markings on either side, without the direction indicators being used, the system automatically applies a rotational force to the steering wheel. Lane keep assist alerts the driver that a steering correction should be made via rotational force felt through the steering wheel. The rotational force can be overridden to make a lane change without use of the direction indicator.

Lane keep assist disables if a fault is detected. The instrument panel displays a message. If the fault does not clear after the ignition is switched off and on again, consult a retailer/authorised repairer.

Lane keep assist 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.

The performance of the lane keep assist 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.
