BLIND SPOT ASSIST

WARNING

Make sure the relevant safety warnings have been read and understood before driving the vehicle. See COLLISION AVOIDANCE SAFETY.

The blind spot assist system applies corrective steering inputs if:

  • A vehicle is detected in the blind spot monitor area, and:

  • A lane change manoeuvre is attempted.

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 displays a warning icon when a rotational force is applied to the steering wheel. The Head-Up Display (HUD) also displays a warning.

NOTES

Blind spot assist operates irrespective of the direction indicators being used.

If required, the steering input provided by the blind spot assist system can be overridden in order to complete a lane change manoeuvre.

Blind spot assist can be switched on and off via the Driver assistance instrument panel menu. See INSTRUMENT PANEL MENU.

Some vehicles may also require the steering wheel button to be pressed to activate and deactivate the system.

NOTES

The steering wheel button also controls operation of the lane departure warning and Lane Keep Assist (LKA) systems. See LANE DEPARTURE WARNING and see LANE KEEP ASSIST (LKA).
