The basic idea of the START-STOP system is to always turn the engine off when it does not need to be running. This feature is particularly advantageous in city traffic, where this significantly reduces fuel consumption and thereby also considerably reduces vehicle running costs. When stopping the vehicle, an automatic engine cut-off takes place, the warning light appears in the instrument cluster. When starting up, the automatic start procedure takes place again. Automatic shutdown / start-up on vehicles with manual transmission The engine is switched off as soon as the vehicle comes to a halt, the shift lever is moved into neutral and the clutch pedal is released. The engine is started as soon as the clutch pedal is depressed. Automatic shutdown / start-up on vehicles with automatic transmission The engine is switched off as soon as the vehicle comes to a halt and the brake pedal is depressed. The engine is started as soon as the accelerator pedal is depressed or, if the Auto Hold function is deactivated, as soon as the brake pedal is released. Functional requirements of the START-STOP system For an automatic engine shutdown to take place when stopping and then an automatic start-up process to occur during start-up, the following conditions must be met.
The driver's door is closed. The driver has fastened the seat belt. The driving speed after the last stop was higher than 4 km/h.
Other conditions cannot be influenced or detected, these are subject to the state of various vehicle systems and weather conditions. For this reason, the START-STOP system may react differently in situations which seem identical from the driver's perspective.
If the conditions for shutdown are not met when the vehicle stops, then no engine shutdown takes place, the warning light appears in the instrument cluster. When the engine is shut down automatically, if the START-STOP system detects that engine running is essential (e.g. in the event of an overloaded vehicle battery), then a premature automatic start-up takes place. Deactivation of the START-STOP system The START-STOP system can be temporarily deactivated, by pressing the button in the front centre console. After switching the ignition off and on, re-activation of the START-STOP system always takes place. Special conditions Under certain circumstances, the vehicle may react more slowly than usual to sudden acceleration, e.g. if the accelerator pedal is depressed at the same time as an automatic engine shutdown.
Switching on › Pull the button. The symbol in the button lights up. Manual shut-down › Depress the brake pedal and press the button. The symbol in the button is no longer illuminated. Automatic shut-off During start-up, the brake is automatically switched off.
Auto Hold function
The Auto Hold function stops the vehicle rolling away during start-up. Holding of the vehicle is displayed by the warning light lighting up in the instrument cluster. Operating conditions The driver's door is closed. The engine is running (or has been switched off automatically by the START-STOP system). In the case of an automatic transmission, the selector lever is not in position N. If the driver’s door is opened or the ignition is switched off in a vehicle which has been secured with Auto Hold, then the parking brake secures the vehicle against unwanted rolling away. Then goes out and is illuminated. Function activation/deactivation Activation/deactivation takes place by pressing the button . When the function is activated, the symbol illuminates in the button.
When manoeuvring, the system draws attention to obstacles in the vicinity of the vehicle via audible signals and coloured labels in the infotainment screen.
An obstacle at a distance of less than 30 cm There is an obstacle in route A (the distance to the obstacle is greater than 30 cm) There is an obstacle outside of route A (the distance to the obstacle is greater than 30 cm)
For vehicles only with sensors built into the rear bumper, the system is activated by engaging reverse gear. For vehicles with sensors built into the front bumper, the system is activated by engaging reverse gear, by pressing the button or in the front centre console or automatically when the vehicle approaches an obstacle at a speed below 10 km/h, when driving forwards.
When manoeuvring, the area around the vehicle captured by cameras is displayed by the system in the infotainment screen. The system is activated by engaging reverse gear or by pressing the button in the front centre console. The camera image is selected by touching the screen in the vicinity of the vehicle silhouette Functional surfaces A 3D views B Display modes C Screen settings - brightness, contrast, colour D Thumbnail display of overall view - switch to overall view by touching the vehicle silhouette
Park Assist helps drivers park in suitable parallel or transverse parking places or manoeuvre out of parallel parking spaces.
A display example of the indications for parallel parking (indications for transverse parking are displayed in the same way).
When entering or leaving a parking space the system only undertakes the steering movements. The driver operates the pedals and the shift lever/gear selector.
Searching for a parking space
› Slowly drive past a row of parked vehicles. › Press the button.
Parking space detected with the indication to drive on Parking space recognised with the indication to reverse Indication for driving forwards Indication for reversing
If the system finds a suitable parking space, the indication for parking is displayed in the instrument cluster. If the system detects that the parking space found is suitable for parallel and transverse parking, it recommends a parking method in the display and allows the driver to change the parking method. Press the button to change the parking method (parallel/transverse parking).
When reversing out of a transverse parking space, the Rear Traffic Alert (hereinafter referred to as system) warns of any vehicles approaching from the side. If the driver does not react to the warning, the system can trigger automatic braking at a speed of up to 10 km/h. Warning - vehicles with parking aid You will hear a continuous tone and one of the following warning levels appears on the infotainment screen. A An oncoming vehicle is detected. Do not reverse any further, check
the area around the vehicle. B A vehicle is detected in the collision zone. Do not go further back.
Warning - vehicles without parking aid An acoustic signal is sounded and information asking the driver to observe the traffic behind is shown in the instrument cluster. Deactivating/activating system › In the instrument cluster display, in the Assist systems menu item. › In the infotainment system, in menu / → → Parking and manoeuvring settings.
Selection of driving mode
By selecting the driving mode, the driving behaviour can be adapted to the desired mode of operation. The following modes Eco, Comfort, Normal, Sport, Individual and Snow are available. The Comfort mode is only available on vehicles with adaptive chassis control (DCC). Snow mode is only available for all-wheel drive vehicles.

Selection of driving mode
› Press the button.
In the infotainment screen, a driving mode menu appears.
› To select a mode, tap the respective functional surface in the infotainment screen or repeatedly press the button .
At a speed of more than 15 km/h, the area alongside and behind the vehicle is monitored by the system. At the same time, the distance and the difference in speed between your vehicle and other vehicles in the monitored area are measured.
Wizard for “blind spot” monitoring - driving conditions and warnings
When driving, the system monitors an area the size of a normal lane width to the left and right. If a vehicle is detected in the “blind spot” area, the system indicates this vehicle by the warning light lighting up in the exterior mirror. The system can be activated/deactivated in one of two ways. › In the instrument cluster display, in the Assist systems menu item. › In the infotainment system, in menu / → → Driver assistance. System constraint The system is unable to recognise the specific lane width by means of sensors. Therefore it may respond to a vehicle in a lane further away in the following scenarios, for example. › When driving on a road with narrow lanes or on the lane edge. › Driving around a bend. The system may also respond to objects on the roadside such as crash barriers, noise barriers or similar objects.
In the following situations, the indicator light in the outside mirror indicates a vehicle detected in the “blind spot”.
› Your vehicle › Your vehicle
B is being overtaken by vehicle A . C is overtaking vehicle D at a higher speed of max. 10 km.
If the speed during the overtaking is even higher, then there is no warning by the warning light.
Two warning levels light ups - a vehicle has been detected in the “blind spot”. flashes - a vehicle has been detected in the “blind spot” and the turn signal is switched on. The warning is always displayed in the exterior mirror on the side of the vehicle where a vehicle is detected in the “blind spot”. The greater the speed difference between the two vehicles, the earlier the warning of the vehicle overtaking you is provided (by means of the warning light).
The cruise control system maintains a set speed without you having to press the accelerator pedal. During control, the warning light lights up in the instrument cluster.
Activate CCS (control deactivated) Interrupt control (spring-tensioned position) Deactivate cruise control Start controlling current speed (if not stored) Resume setting the controlled speed (if control is interrupted) Increase speed (if control is active) Start controlling the current speed Reduce speed (if control is active)
The adaptive cruise control controls the set speed and the distance to the vehicle ahead without the accelerator or brake pedal being pressed. Deactivate ACC Interrupt control (spring-tensioned position) Activate ACC (control deactivated) Start control (resume) Increase speed by 1 km/h at a time (spring-tensioned position) Set proximity level Increase speed by 10 km/h at a time Start control Decrease speed by 1 km/h at a time Decrease speed (by 10 km/h at a time)
The Front Assist system indicates a warning in the display of the instrument cluster of a collision risk with a vehicle or with another obstacle located in front of you. In a speed range of 5 km/h to 30 or 45 km/h (depending on the type of obstacle), the Front Assist system attempts to avoid the collision or mitigate its consequences by braking automatically in the event of an impending crash. System displays The safe distance to the vehicle in front is below the minimum Automatic braking in the event of a collision risk (depending on the type of display, the symbol is displayed in red or white) Deactivation/activation can take place in one of the following ways.
› In the instrument cluster display, in the Assist systems menu item. › In the infotainment system, in menu / → → Driver assistance. Front Assist is automatically activated each time the ignition is switched on.
The Lane Assist system helps to keep the vehicle in lane. The system detects the boundary lines of the lane using a sensor. When the vehicle approaches a detected line between lanes, the system moves the steering wheel slightly in the opposite direction to the boundary line. This corrective steering intervention can be manually overridden at any time. System displays (display example in colour display) The system is active, but not ready to intervene. The system is active and ready to intervene. The system intervenes when approaching the right-hand boundary lane. Adaptive tracking takes place. Deactivation/activation can take place in one of the following ways.
› In the instrument cluster display, in the Assist systems menu item. › In the infotainment system, in menu / → → Driver assistance.
Part of the OFF ROAD mode is the hill descent assistant (hereinafter referred to as assist system), which with its automatic braking action on all wheels ensures a constant speed is maintained on a steep slope when driving forwards and reversing. Initiate the downhill descent at a reasonable speed of approx. 2 - 30 km/h, the assist system constantly maintains this speed as you travel downhill. If a forwards or reverse gear is engaged on vehicles with a manual transmission, the speed must be high enough to avoid “stalling the engine”. The OFF ROAD mode assists the driver when driving over areas of difficult terrain at a speed of up to 30 km/h.
› To activate/deactivate the system, press the button . When OFF ROAD mode is activated, the symbol in the button lights up and the warning light for OFF ROAD mode and the hill descent assistant are displayed in the instrument cluster.
