Warning with evasion support
Display in the instrument cluster
A warning symbol appears in the instrument
cluster and in the Head-up Display if a collision
with a detected vehicle is imminent.
Symbol lights up red: prewarning.
Brake and increase distance.
Symbol flashes red and an acoustic
signal sounds: acute warning.
Brake and make an evasive maneu‐
ver, if necessary.
Acute warning with evasion support
An acute warning is displayed when there is an
imminent danger of collision due to the vehicle
approaching another object at a high speed.
Intervene in the case of an acute warning. The
system is designed to provide assistance by tak‐
ing evasive action when there is a risk of collision.
Acute warnings may be provided even when
there has been no prior warning.
The system is designed to operate in certain
conditions and circumstances. Due to condi‐
tions or other factors, the system may not re‐
spond. There may be a risk of accident or risk
of damage to property. Actively intervene as
warranted. Refer to the information in this Own‐
er’s Manual regarding the scope of the sys‐
tem’s operation and limitations.
The system's detection potential is limited.
Thus, a system reaction might not come or
might come late.
The following situations may not be detected, for
▷ Slow moving vehicles when you approach
them at high speed.
▷ Vehicles that suddenly swerve in front of you,
or sharply decelerating vehicles.
▷ Vehicles with an unusual rear appearance.
▷ Two-wheeled vehicles ahead of you.
The system may not be fully functional in the fol‐
▷ In heavy fog, wet conditions, or snowfall.
▷ In tight curves.
▷ If the driving stability control systems are lim‐
ited or deactivated, for instance DSC OFF.
▷ If the field of view of the camera or the wind‐
shield is dirty or covered in the area of the in‐
▷ If the camera has overheated and been tem‐
porarily switched off due to excessively high
▷ Up to 10 seconds after the start of the engine
via the Start/Stop button.
▷ During calibration of the camera immediately
after vehicle delivery.
▷ If there are constant blinding effects because
of oncoming light, for instance from the sun
low in the sky.
▷ Depending on the equipment: if the radar
sensors are dirty or covered.
▷ Depending on the equipment version: after
improperly performed work on the vehicle
paint in the area of the radar sensors.
Attaching any objects such as stickers or film in
the beam area of the radar sensors will also im‐
pact the function of the radar sensors and may
even cause them to fail.
