The smart key system uses Radio Frequency (RF) transmissions that could interfere with implanted medical devices. In rare circumstances, interference may cause an implanted medical device to malfunction. To avoid any possibility of interference between the system and the device, make sure that the device is kept at a safe distance of at least 22 cm away from any transmitter. See SMART KEY SYSTEM TRANSMITTERS.


To prevent accidental or unauthorised operation, never leave children or animals unattended in the vehicle. The vehicle can be operated when the smart key is inside the vehicle.


The operational range of the smart key varies considerably, depending on atmospheric conditions and interference from other transmitting devices.


If any door, or the tailgate, is unlocked ten times within a short period, the locking latch disables for approximately 1 minute.


A replacement smart key can be obtained only from a retailer/authorised repairer. The retailer/authorised repairer will require proof of identification and ownership. Notify a retailer/authorised repairer immediately if a smart key is lost or stolen.

The vehicle is supplied with two smart keys. The smart keys act as remote controls for the locking and alarm system. The smart keys allow the vehicle to be locked, unlocked, and driven without the use of a conventional key. Each smart key also has an emergency key housed behind a slide-off cover.

  1. Lock: Press to secure the vehicle. The vehicle single locks. If power-fold mirrors are enabled, the mirrors fold in. Press and hold to activate the global closing feature, if available. See SINGLE LOCKING, DOUBLE LOCKING, DOOR MIRRORS, and GLOBAL CLOSING.

  2. Unlock: Press briefly to unlock the vehicle and disarm the alarm. The hazard warning lights flash twice to indicate that the vehicle is unlocked and the alarm is disarmed. The interior lights illuminate to assist entry to the vehicle. If power-fold mirrors are enabled, the mirrors unfold. Press and hold to activate the global opening feature, if available. See GLOBAL OPENING .

  3. Tailgate: Press briefly to release, open, or close the tailgate. If the vehicle is locked and armed, all of the other doors remain closed and the exterior alarm remains armed while the tailgate is open. When closing, if the vehicle is already locked and armed, the hazard warning lights flash after a few seconds. The warning lights confirm that the full alarm system has re-armed.


    Before closing the vehicle, make sure the smart key does not remain in the vehicle. The smart key may not be detected if kept inside a metal container, or if shielded by a device with a back-lit LCD screen. For example, a smartphone, laptop, including when inside a bag, or a games console. Also, if the vehicle is in an area of localised RF interference, it may not be detected. If the smart key is not detected inside the vehicle, the vehicle can be locked. The vehicle does not automatically unlock. The vehicle unlocks only with another valid smart key.

  4. Panic alarm:

    Press and hold for 3 seconds, or press three times within 3 seconds, to activate the horn and the hazard warning lights.

    Once active for more than 5 seconds, the alarm can be cancelled. Press the button and hold for 3 seconds, or press three times within 3 seconds.

    The panic alarm also cancels if a valid smart key is present when the START/STOP button is pressed.

  5. Front storage compartment: Press briefly to open the front storage compartment.

  6. Emergency key blade access: Push the release button and pull to withdraw the key blade.

  7. Emergency key blade.

  8. Keyless unlock: Press to unlock and disarm the vehicle. The door handles deploy on unlocked doors.


    A handle in the retracted flush position indicates a locked door or a vehicle speed above 8 km/h (5 mph).

  9. Keyless single lock: Press the lock button on the door handle to single lock the vehicle. All door handles retract to the flush position. See SINGLE LOCKING.

  10. Keyless double lock: After single locking, press the lock button on the door handle again within 3 seconds to double lock the vehicle. See KEYLESS LOCKING.

  11. Emergency door unlock: If the smart key and keyless entry fail to open the vehicle, insert the key blade into the lock barrel behind the driver's door handle. To access the lock barrel, push on the front end of the handle, which presents the rear of the handle. Pull the handle out to the deployed position to give access to the lock barrel.

    To unlock, turn the key blade clockwise and release.


    The alarm sounds until the smart key's unlock button is pressed or the smart key is positioned correctly inside the vehicle. See START BACKUP.

    To lock, turn the key blade counter-clockwise and release.


    The operation locks all of the doors, but does not arm the alarm.
