Surround View includes the camera systems Top View, Rear View and Panorama View. Cameras in the exterior mirrors and two wide-angle cameras, one in the front and one in the rear, enable a 360°-panorama surround view as well as a panorama view of the area in front and behind the vehicle.
Top View captures a 360°-panorama view of the area surrounding the vehicle and uses this data to computer-generate a bird's-eye view to facilitate manoeuvring. The wide-angle Side View camera between the double kidney grilles on the front and the wide-angle Rear View camera enable a panorama view of the area in front and behind 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 camera systems are activated when the car is put into reverse or the PDC button or Side View button is pressed. The images captured by the cameras are shown on the Control Display. The driver can choose between the Rear View camera, Top View or Panorama View. The Side View function is automatically deactivated when the car moves at speeds of 15 km/h or more.
