The system supports the driver in the following situations:

  • When parking parallel to the road, parallel parking.
  • When reverse parking diagonally to the road, diagonal parking. The system orients itself with the middle of the parking space during diagonal parking.
  • Depending on the equipment version: when driving out of parallel parking spaces.

General information

Handling

Parking assistant handling is divided into three steps:

  • Switching on and activating.
  • Parking space search.
  • Parking.

System status and instructions on required actions are displayed on the Control Display.

Ultrasound sensors measure parking spaces on both sides of the vehicle.

Steptronic transmission

The parking assistant calculates the best possible parking line and takes control of the following functions during the parking procedure:

  • Steering.
  • Accelerating and braking.
  • Changing the gears.

Parking is automatic.

Remote Control Parking

The vehicle can be remotely parked and driven out in reverse if suitable forward-parking spaces are available.

Safety information

The system cannot serve as a substitute for the driver's personal judgment in assessing the traffic conditions. Based on the limits of the system, it cannot independently react to all traffic situations. There is a risk of accident. Adjust driving style to traffic conditions. Watch traffic closely and actively intervene where appropriate.

NOTICE


The parking assistant can steer the vehicle over or onto curbs. There is a risk of damage to property. Watch traffic closely and actively intervene where appropriate.

Ultrasound sensors

Ultrasound sensors


With the four side ultrasound sensors, arrows, and the ultrasound sensors in the bumpers, the parking spaces are measured and the distances to obstacles determined.

Functional requirements

Ultrasound sensors

Ensure full functionality:

  • Do not cover sensors, for instance with stickers.
  • Keep the sensors clean and unobstructed.

For measuring parking spaces

  • Maximum speed while driving forward approx. 22 mph/35 km/h.
  • Maximum distance to row of parked vehicles: 5 ft/1.5 m.

Suitable parking space

General information:

  • Gap behind an object that has a min. length of 1.7 ft/0.5 m.
  • Gap between two objects with a minimum length of approx. 1.7 ft/0.5 m.

Parallel parking to the road:

  • Min. length of gap between two objects: your vehicle's length plus approx. 2.6 ft/0.8 m.
  • Minimum depth: approx. 5 ft/1.5 m.

Diagonal parking:

  • Minimum width of the gap: own vehicle's width plus approx. 2.3 ft/0.7 m.
  • Minimum depth: your vehicle's length.

    The depth of diagonal parking spaces must be estimated by the driver. Due to technical limitations, the system is only able to approximate the depth of diagonal parking spaces.

For parking

  • Doors and trunk lid are closed.
  • Driver's safety belt is fastened.
