USING PARK ASSIST

WARNING

In the interest of safety, only operate, adjust, or view the system when it is safe to do so. Driver distraction can lead to accidents, potentially causing serious injury or death.

WARNING

Park assist must not be used if a sensor is damaged, or the bumper is damaged sufficiently enough to affect a sensor mounting point. Failing to follow these guidelines may result in sensor miscalculation or false indications, this can lead to accidents, potentially causing serious injury or death.

WARNING

Park assist must not be used if a sensor is obstructed by items attached to the vehicle, e.g., bumper covers, a bicycle rack, or stickers. Failing to follow these guidelines may result in sensor miscalculations or false indications, which can lead to accidents, potentially causing serious injury or death.

CAUTION

Park assist must not be used if a temporary spare wheel is in use.

CAUTION

Park assist must not be used if the vehicle is being used to transport a load that extends beyond the vehicle’s perimeter.

For assistance when parking:
NOTES

For park assist to search effectively for a space, the park assist system must maintain a distance of 0.5 m to 1.5 m. The distance of 0.5 m to 1.5 m is between the vehicle and the row of parked vehicles or obstacles.

As the vehicle is driven forward, the size of a potential parking space is assessed.

The park assist auto-searching feature becomes active when the vehicle's speed is less than 30 km/h (18 mph).

NOTES

When park assist auto-searching is active, the instrument panel menu displays a park assist auto-search icon¹.

When park assist is selected and parallel parking/perpendicular parking is active, a space may already have been detected by the auto-searching feature. The detected parking spaces display blue and an instruction message is displayed on the park assist main touchscreen. See SELECTING PARK ASSIST.

When a pre-selected parking space is found, a short confirmation tone is given.

NOTES

Detected parking spaces that are too small or non-manoeuvrable are displayed as grey in the park assist main touchscreen. See SELECTING PARK ASSIST.

If more than one valid space is displayed in the park assist main touchscreen, the driver can switch from the pre-selected parking space by touching the preferred parking space on the park assist main touchscreen. See SELECTING PARK ASSIST.

The park assist system may determine that other vehicles are too close, on either side, to perform a parking manoeuvre. A detected space can be rejected, even if it is large enough for the vehicle. The driver retains the option to switch park assist off and attempt the manoeuvre manually.

Park assist auto-search icon¹

The purpose of the park assist auto-search icon¹ is to provide information to the driver that valid parking spaces are being searched for. In order to use park assist, the feature must still be activated using the touchscreen. See SELECTING PARK ASSIST.

The park assist auto-search icon¹ only displays on the instrument panel when the vehicle is driven under 30 km/h (18 mph) and the park assist system is searching for spaces.

The following images display the different states of the icon in the instrument panel:

No valid parking slots.

Valid parking space on the right.

Valid parking space on the left.

Valid parking spaces on both side.

For assistance when exiting a parallel parking space:
WARNING

The parking exit mode operates only when the vehicle has been parallel parked. Parking exit does not manoeuvre the vehicle from a perpendicular parking space. The driver is responsible and must not use parking exit mode to exit a perpendicular parking.

WARNING

Do not perform a parking exit manoeuvre until instructions display on the touchscreen.

Select the parking exit icon. See SELECTING PARK ASSIST.

When the vehicle is parallel parked, the park assist system automatically determines the most appropriate side for a parking exit manoeuvre. The driver can override the pre-selected side for a parking exit manoeuvre by using the direction indicators. The operated direction indicators notify the park assist system on which side the driver intends to leave the parking space.

For the parking exit mode to operate correctly, the vehicle must be parked in a space where other vehicles or objects are either:

  • Parked in front of the vehicle.

  • Parked in front and behind the vehicle.

NOTES

Sufficient space is required in front and behind the vehicle for parking exit mode to operate correctly.

All park assist features:
WARNING

Although the vehicle takes control during the parking or exiting manoeuvre, the driver must maintain full control of the accelerator and brake pedals throughout. If the manoeuvre is not as expected, take control of the steering and make necessary adjustments. Driver distraction can lead to accidents, potentially causing serious injury or death.

NOTES

During any park assist manoeuvre, the parking aid system will remain active.

For all park assist modes, follow the instructions on the touchscreen main screen or touchscreen side panel, until the parking or exiting manoeuvre is complete. See SELECTING PARK ASSIST.

A park assist manoeuvre cancels if:

  • The park assist icon is touched. See SELECTING PARK ASSIST.

  • The Cancel soft key on the park assist side-panel touchscreen is selected. See SELECTING PARK ASSIST.

  • The parking aid system has detected an object that sounds a warning tone for longer than 10 seconds.

  • The ABS system is operated.

  • A parallel parking manoeuvre has exceeded the maximum of 9 shuffles.

  • A perpendicular parking manoeuvre has exceeded the maximum of 7 shuffles.

  • The park assist instructions are not followed.

  • Park (P) is selected for more than 10 minutes.

  • The vehicle's speed exceeds 7 km/h (4 mph).

  • Wade sensing is enabled.

If a system fault is detected, a continuous tone sounds and the instrument panel displays a warning message. If all of the sensors are clean and the fault is not rectified after the vehicle's electrical system is restarted, contact a retailer/authorised repairer.
