Thanks to the optional camera systems, every parking space becomes a pleasure. This is because with Surround View and the Rear view camera you always have the area around the vehicle fully in view. In addition, Park Distance Control (PDC) at the front and rear gives optical and acoustic signals so that you can park safely and comfortably.
The Rear View camera allows the driver to view the area behind the car in the Control Display while manoeuvring and parking. The Rear View camera enhances visibility when reversing at speeds below 20 km/h, for example when parking. Interactive track lines indicate whether the chosen parking space is big enough for the car and provide assistance during parking by marking areas in colour on the Control Display. In conjunction with the trailer tow hitch, the Rear View camera makes the approach when hooking up a trailer easier with a practical zoom function.
The Surround View system makes provides a 360° panorama view around the vehicle with help from cameras in the exterior mirrors, a wide-angle camera in front and the Rear View camera. The system assists the driver during parking or manoeuvring in tight situations or when navigating in areas with limited visibility.
Surround View includes the Rear View camera with Top View and Side View. Top View displays the areas on the side of the car for more convenient manoeuvring. Side View's wide-angle camera between the double kidney grilles on the front and the Rear View camera allow for a panorama view of the front and back of the vehicle. The Cross Traffic Assistant assists the driver by first displaying yellow beams on the side edges of the image as well as a yellow warning triangle in the presence of crossing traffic. The Side View function is automatically deactivated when the car reaches 15 km/h.
The driver can then choose to activate the Rear View camera, Top View or Panorama Side View. The system is activated when the car is put into reverse or at other predetermined activation points. The image is shown on the Control Display.
