Emergency Assist

How it works

Emergency Assist can detect whether there is
inactivity by the driver and can automatically
keep the car in its lane and stop it altogether

if necessary. This way the system can actively
help avoid an accident or reduce its conse-
quences.
Emergency Assist uses the same sensors as
Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) and Lane As-
sist. Therefore, carefully read the information
about the ACC 

››› 

page 188

 and Lane Assist 

››› 

page 199

 and take into account the limita-

tions of the systems and the indications given in
the information.

Driver intervention prompt

If the emergency assist detects that the driver is
not actively doing anything, he or she is promp-
ted to take control of the vehicle by audio
warnings and a brief application of the brake. In
addition, a warning is shown on the instrument
cluster display and the volume of the infotain-
ment system is lowered.
Depending on the equipment, the driver’s seat
belt is tightened at the same time.

System intervention

If the driver does not react, the system can
brake the vehicle and keep it in its lane. The fol-
lowing control lamp lights up on the instrument
cluster display:

The system is regulating.

You can cancel the adjustment at any time by
moving the steering wheel, over-accelerating
or braking.

While the emergency assistant is in operation,
other road users are warned as follows:

The hazard warning lights are switched on

soon after.

The horn sounds (depending on the speed).

The following happens as soon as the vehicle
stops:

The electronic parking brake is activated.

All doors are unlocked.

The interior lighting comes on.

Depending on the features, an emergency

call (eCall) is made.

Connecting and disconnecting

Emergency Assist can be switched on and off in
the assistants menu of the infotainment system.
When connected, the Emergency Assist is only
activated if the following requirements are met:

The Travel Assist or the Lane Assist are

switched on.

The system has detected a road lane mark-

ing on both sides of the vehicle.

Note

If the emergency assist is faulty, it may
switch off automatically.

Note

If Lane Assist is unavailable, Emergency As-
sist will be unavailable as well.

Lane departure warning (Side Assist)

WARNING

The smart technology fitted into the Emer-
gency Assist cannot overcome the limits im-
posed by the laws of physics; it only works
within the limits of the system. The driver is
responsible for driving the vehicle.

Adapt your speed and safety distance to

the vehicle in front of you at all times to suit
the visibility, weather, road and traffic condi-
tions.

The Emergency Assist cannot always avoid

accidents or serious injuries by itself.

If the radar sensor or the camera are cov-

ered or have been altered or damaged, the
system may intervene on the brakes or on the
direction in an inappropriate manner.

The Emergency Assist does not react to

people or animal or vehicles crossing your
path or which approach you head-on in the
same lane.

WARNING

If the Emergency Assist Intervenes inoppor-
tunely, serious accidents and injuries may
occur.

If the vehicle behaves differently than

expected, interrupt the intervention of the
Emergency Assist by over-accelerating,
braking or moving the steering wheel.

Do not use Travel Assist or Lane Assist.

Have the system checked by a specialised
workshop.

Troubleshooting

Emergency Assist not available

The control lamp switches on yellow. A relevant
warning is also displayed on the instrument
panel screen.

The field of vision of the camera is dirty.

Clean the windscreen.

The visibility of the camera is diminished due

to weather factors, e.g. snow, or detergent resi-
due or some coating. Clean the windscreen.

The visibility of the camera is diminished due

to accessories or adhesives. Leave the area
around the camera’s field of vision free.

The camera has been altered or damaged,

e.g. because of damage caused to the wind-
screen. Check for visible damage.

There is a fault or a defect. Switch the engine

off and on again.

If the fault continues, disconnect the Emer-

gency Assist and consult a specialised work-
shop.

Lane departure warning
(Side Assist)

Introduction

The lane departure warning uses radar sen-
sors to monitor the areas behind the vehicle 

››› 

page 6

. The system does this by measuring

the vehicle's distance from other vehicles and
its speed differential. The lane departure warn-
ing will not work at speeds of less than approx.
15 km/h (9 mph).
The lane width is not detected individually, but
is rather pre-configured in the system. Thus if
you are driving in wide lanes or in between two
lanes, the indications may be incorrect. Further-
more, the system can detect vehicles driving in
the lane next to you (if there are any), and can
also detect stationary objects such as dividers,
and thus give an incorrect indication.

Trailer mode

Side assist is automatically deactivated and
cannot be switched on if the factory-fitted tow-
bar is electrically connected to a trailer or simi-
lar device.
As soon as the driver starts to drive with a trailer
connected electrically to the vehicle, a mes-
sage is displayed on the instrument panel dis-
play indicating that side assist is switched off.
Once the vehicle trailer has been disengaged,

CarManuals2.com

206

Assistant systems

side assist will return to the initial state prior to
the moment the trailer was electrically connec-
ted.
If the tow-bar is not factory fitted, side assist
should be switched off manually when driving
with a trailer.

Physical limitations inherent to the system

In some situations the lane departure warning
may not interpret the traffic situation correctly.
I.e. in the following situations:

on tight bends;

in the case of lanes with different widths;

in areas with significant gradient changes;

in adverse weather conditions;

in the case of special constructions to the

side of the vehicle, e.g., high or irregular divid-
ers.

WARNING

The smart technology incorporated into Side
Assist cannot overcome the limits imposed
by the laws of physics; it only works within
the limits of the system. Accidents and se-
vere injury may occur if Side Assist is used
negligently or involuntarily. The system is not
a replacement for driver awareness.

Adapt your speed and safe distance to the

vehicle in front of you at all times to suit visi-
bility, weather, road and traffic conditions.

Keep your hands on the wheel at all times

to be ready to intervene in the steering at any
time.

Pay attention to the indicator lamps that

may come on in the external rear view mir-
rors and on the instrument cluster, and follow
any instructions they may give.

The lane departure warning could react

to any special constructions that might be
present to the sides of the vehicle, e.g. high
or irregular dividers. This may cause errone-
ous warnings.

Never use the lane departure warning on

unpaved roads. The lane departure warning
has been designed for use on paved roads.

Always pay attention to the vehicle's sur-

roundings.

The control lamps of the lane departure

warning may have limited functionality due
to solar radiation.

Note

If Side Assist does not work as described in
this chapter, stop using it and contact a spe-
cialised workshop.

wheel. If the vehicle is equipped with a multi-
function camera, it can also be accessed by
means of the assistants systems key located on
the main beam headlight lever.
When the lane departure warning is ready to
operate, the indications in the control lamps will
turn on briefly as confirmation.
When the vehicle is restarted, the last adjust-
ment in the system will remain active.

Indication on the exterior mirror

The control lamp provides an indication on the
corresponding side regarding the traffic situa-
tion behind the vehicle, if it is deemed to be
critical. The control lamp on the left-hand side
indicates the traffic situation to the rear left of
the vehicle, and the control lamp on the right-
hand side indicates the traffic situation to the
rear right of the vehicle .
In the case of retrofitted tinted windows or win-
dows with tinted film, the indications of the ex-
ternal mirrors may not be seen clearly.
Keep the external mirrors clean and free of
snow and ice, and do not cover them with ad-
hesives or other similar materials.

It lights up

It turns on once briefly: the lane departure warning
is activated and ready to operate, i.e. when acti-
vating the system.

It lights up

It lights up continuously: the lane departure warn-
ing has detected a vehicle in the blind spot.

Flashes

A vehicle has been detected in the adjacent lane
and the turn signal has been engaged in the direc-
tion of the detected vehicle.

For vehicles that are also equipped with Lane As-
sist 

››› 

page 199

, a warning to switch lanes will

also appear even though the turn signal has not
been engaged (Lane Assist “Plus”).

The control lamps light up when the ignition is
switched on and should turn off after approxi-
mately 2 seconds. This is the time taken for the
function check.
If there are no indications from the control lamp
of the lane departure warning, this means that
the lane departure warning has not detected
any other vehicles at the rear area.
When the exterior lighting is low, the intensity
with which the control lamps come on is dim-
med. The user can modify the intensity of the
control lamps with up to 5 levels in the infotain-
ment system menu.

mph). If the vehicle is passing at a considerably
higher speed, no indication will be displayed.

The faster the vehicle approaches, the sooner
an indication will be displayed in the control
lamp, because the lane departure warning
takes into account the speed differential with
other vehicles. Thus even though the distance
from the other vehicle is identical, the indication
will appear sooner in some cases and later in
others.

General information on parking systems

What happens in the event of automatic
braking?

If there is an obstacle, the system brakes the
vehicle to a standstill and keeps it stationary for
approx. 2 seconds.

 Press the brake!

Activate

Automatic braking is activated when the

driver switches a parking system on.

Deactivating

The automatic brake operation function de-

activates when a park assist system is switched
off.

OR:

 to temporarily deactivate the manoeuvre

braking function, press the   function button
on the park assist screen and change the set-
ting.

WARNING

Never allow the automatic braking opera-
tions of park assist systems to lead you to
take any risk that compromises safety. In
certain situations, the automatic braking in-
tervention may only work in a limited way
or not work at all. Collisions with obstacles
can injure people and damage the vehicle.
The system is not a replacement for driver
awareness.

Pay attention and do not rely solely on

park assist systems.

 Always be prepared to brake and control

the steering yourself.

Do not take any risks that compromise

safety.

Act in accordance with the warnings and

driving recommendations of the parking sys-
tems.

Note

Switch off the parking system if the auto-

matic brakes operate excessively, e.g. when
driving off-road.

After the park assist’s manoeuvre braking

function has braked the vehicle, driving in the
same direction for 5 metres is deactivated,
and becomes active again after changing
gear or changing the position of the gear se-
lector.

Troubleshooting

The parking system behaves differently than
expected

There can be several causes:

The system requirements are not met.

The sensors or the camera are dirty or have

ice on them 

››› 

page 371

.

The camera lens is not clean and the camera

image is not clear 

››› 

page 371

.

Some noise sources, such as a jackhammer

or a cobblestone surface can interfere with the
ultrasound signal.

The vehicle has some type of damage in the

sensor or camera area, e.g. due to a parking
impact.

 The sensor detection zone or field of view of

the camera are blocked by an accessory, e.g. a
bike rack.

Changes have been made to the paintwork

or structural modifications in the sensor or
camera area, e.g. at the front of the vehicle or
to the running gear.
Also take into account the messages displayed
on the infotainment system screen.

Sensor or camera without visibility, or the
parking system has been switched off

If a sensor fails, that sensor zone is permanently
switched off. The affected sensor zone may be
displayed on the infotainment system with a 
symbol and a greyed-out graphic segment. If
necessary, the parking system switches off the
affected zone.
If the park assist is not working properly, a con-
tinuous audio signal sounds for a few seconds
when it is switched on. If applicable, a message
to this effect is displayed on the instrument
cluster screen

As you approach the obstacle, the frequency of
the audible signals will increase. The signal will
sound continuously at around 0.30 m: Stop the
vehicle!
If the separation is maintained, the warning vol-
ume is reduced after about 4 seconds.

In order to view the entire periphery of the vehi-
cle, the vehicle must be moved a few metres
forwards or backwards. Therefore, the missing
areas are screened and obstacles at the sides
of the vehicle are displayed

Special features of ParkPilot with Area View

In the following situations the screened area on
the side of the vehicle is automatically hidden:

 When a vehicle door is opened.

When the TCS is switched off.

When there is TCS or ESC regulation.

If the vehicle remains stationary for more than

approximately 3 minutes.

Error messages

If a an error or fault message is displayed on
the instrument cluster in Park Assist, there is a
fault.
If the fault doesn't disappear before discon-
necting the ignition, it will not be indicated next
time the parking aid is connected.
If a rear sensor is faulty, only the obstacles in
the front area are detected. If a front sensor is
faulty, only the obstacles in the rear area are
displayed. The symbol   is displayed.
We recommend taking the vehicle to a special-
ised workshop to have the fault repaired.

WARNING

Always pay attention, by looking directly,

to traffic and the area around the vehicle. As-
sistance systems are not a replacement for
driver awareness. Responsibility always lies
with the driver.

The sensors have blind spots in which ob-

stacles and people are not detected. Pay
special attention to children and animals.

Always keep visual control of the surround-

ings: use the mirrors for additional help.

NOTICE

Park assist plus functions can be affected by
various factors which may cause damage:

Under certain circumstances, the system

does not detect or display certain objects:

Chains, trailer draw bars, bars, fences,

posts and thin trees.

Objects that are located above the sen-

sors, such as protrusions in a wall.

Objects with certain surfaces or struc-

tures, such as wire mesh fences or powder
snow.

Certain surfaces of objects and garments

do not reflect the ultrasound sensors' sig-
nals. The system cannot detect these ob-
jects or people wearing such clothes cor-
rectly.

Sensor signals may be affected by exter-

nal sound sources. This may prevent them
from detecting people or objects.

If the system warns you of the proximity

of a low obstacle, please note that after be-
ing detected by the system, the obstacle in
question may disappear from the measure-
ment sensors as the vehicle moves closer,
and the system will no longer warn of its
presence. In certain circumstances, objects
such as high kerbs that could damage the
underside of the vehicle are not detected.

If the parking distance warning system is

ignored, the vehicle could suffer considera-
ble damage.

Damage to the radiator grille, bumper,

wheel arch and vehicle underbody can mod-
ify the orientation of the sensors. This can
affect the parking aid function.
Have the function checked by a specialised
workshop.

A number plate or number plate holder

with dimensions that exceed the space for
the number plate, or a cured or deformed
number plate can cause false detections or a
loss of visibility for the sensors.

CarManuals2.com

216

Parking and manoeuvring

Note

 The display on the Infotainment system

screen shows a slight time delay.

In certain situations, the system can give a

warning even though there is no obstacle in
the detected area:

Rough or cobbled surfaces or surfaces

with long grass.

External ultrasound sources, such as

other vehicles equipped with ultrasound
systems.

Heavy rain or snow, hail or dense exhaust

gases.

If the number plate is not properly se-

cured to the surface of the bumper.

Gradient changes.

In order to guarantee good operation, keep

the sensors clean, free of snow and ice, and
do not cover them with stickers or other ob-
jects.

If you use high-pressure or vapour equip-

ment for cleaning, do not apply it directly,
unless you do so very briefly, and always
keep a distance of more than 10 cm away.

Fitting certain accessories to the front of

the vehicle, such as a plate holder with ad-
vertising, may interfere with the operation of
the Park Assist.

We recommend that you practice parking

in an area without traffic.

 The volume and tone of the signals and

indications can be changed.

Please observe information on towing a

trailer.

Parking aid system (Park
Assist)

Introduction

The assisted parking system is an additional
function of ParkPilot 

››› 

page 214

 and helps

the driver find a suitable parking space from
among the following types:

 park driving in reverse in suitable perpendic-

ular and parallel spaces,

park driving forwards in suitable perpendicu-

lar spaces,

exit a parking space driving forwards from a

parallel space.

In vehicles with a Park Assist system and factory
infotainment system, the front, rear and side
areas are represented, and the position of ob-
stacles is shown relative to the vehicle.
The assisted parking system is subject to cer-
tain limitations inherent to the system and
its use requires special attention by the
driver 

››› 

.

WARNING

The technology used in the park assist sys-
tem involves a series of limitations inherent in
the actual system and in the use of ultrasonic
sensors. The use of Park Assist should never
tempt you to take any risk that may compro-
mise safety. The system is not a replacement
for driver awareness.

Any accidental movement of the vehicle

could result in serious injury.

Adapt your speed and driving style at all

times to suit visibility, weather, road and
traffic conditions.

Certain surfaces of objects and garments

do not reflect the ultrasound sensors' sig-
nals. The system cannot detect, at least cor-
rectly, these objects or people wearing such
clothes.

Ultrasound sensor signals may be affected

by external sound sources. In certain circum-
stances this may prevent them from detect-
ing people or objects.

CarManuals2.com

220

Parking and manoeuvring

The ultrasound sensors may have blind

spots in which obstacles and people are not
detected.

Monitor the area around the vehicle at all

times, since the ultrasound sensors do not
detect small children, animals or certain ob-
jects in all situations.

WARNING

Quick turns of the steering wheel when park-
ing or exiting a parking space with Park As-
sist can cause serious injury.

Do not hold the steering wheel during ma-

noeuvres to park or exit a parking space un-
til the system requests it. Doing so disables
the system during the manoeuvre, resulting
in the parking being cancelled.

NOTICE

 In certain circumstances, the ultrasonic

sensors do not detect objects such as trailer
tongues, bars, fences, posts or thin trees, or
an open (or opening) rear lid, which could
damage the vehicle.

Retrofitting of certain accessories to the

vehicle, such as a bicycle rack, may interfere
with the operation of the Park Assist system
and cause damage.

The Park Assist system uses as a reference

parked vehicles, curbs and other objects.
Make sure that the tyres and wheels are not

damaged while parking. If necessary, oppor-
tunely interrupt the parking manoeuvre to
avoid damaging the vehicle.

The ultrasound sensors on the bumper may

be damaged or shifted in the event of a colli-
sion, for example, when entering or exiting a
parking space.

If you use high-pressure or vapour equip-

ment to clean the ultrasound sensors, do not
apply it directly unless very briefly and al-
ways from a distance of more than 10 cm.

A registration plate or plate holder on the

front with larger than the space for the reg-
istration plate, or a registration plate that is
curved or warped can cause:

False detections.

The sensors to lose visibility.

Cancellation of the parking manoeuvre

or defective parking.

 If one of the ultrasonic sensors is dam-

aged, the area corresponding to that group
of sensors (front or rear) is deactivated and
cannot be activated until the fault is correc-
ted. However, you can still use the sensors
of the other bumper as per usual. If there
is a fault in the system, consult a specialist
workshop. SEAT recommends visiting a SEAT
dealership for this.

Note

In order to guarantee good system oper-

ation, keep the ultrasound sensors of the
bumper clean, free of snow or ice, and do not
cover them with adhesives or other objects.

Certain sources of noise, such as rough as-

phalt or paving stones and the noise of other
vehicles can induce the Park Assist system
or ParkPilot to give erroneous warnings. The
presence of metal objects can also affect
the manoeuvre.

In order to become familiar with the system

and its functions, SEAT recommends that you
practice operating the Park Assist system in
an area where there is not too much traffic or
in a car park.

Prematurely stopping or automatically in-
terrupting the manoeuvres for parking or ex-
iting a parking space

Park Assist interrupts the manoeuvres for park-
ing or exiting a parking space in any of the fol-
lowing cases:

Press the   button.

When exceeding a speed of approximately 7

km/h (4 mph) more than once.

The driver takes control of the steering wheel.

The parking manoeuvre does not end within 6

minutes after activation of the automatic steer-
ing.

There is a fault in the system (the system is

temporarily unavailable).

The TCS is disconnected.

TCS or ESC intervene with regulation.

The 

Offroad

 or 

Snow

 driving profile is selec-

ted.

The driver door is opened.

To restart the manoeuvre it is necessary that
none of these things occur and that the   but-
ton is pressed again.

Automatic braking intervention to avoid ex-
ceeding the speed limit

To avoid exceeding the allowed speed of ap-
prox. 7 km/h (4 mph) when entering or leaving
a parking space, the brakes may activate au-
tomatically. After automatically activating the
brakes, the manoeuvres to enter or exit a park-
ing space may continue.
The brakes are only automatically activated
once for each attempt to enter or exit a parking
space. If the speed of approximately 7 km/h
(4 mph) is exceeded again, the corresponding
operation is halted.

Special characteristics

The Park Assist system is subject to certain limi-
tations inherent to the system. For example, it is
therefore not possible to use it to enter or exit a
parking space on sharp bends or on very steep
hills.
While entering or exiting a parking space, a
brief signal sounds to prompt the driver to
change between forward and reverse gears
(depending on the case). In successive ma-
noeuvres, the assistant tells the driver to
change gears, at the latest, when the continu-
ous audible signal is given (object present at a
distance of ≤30 cm) by Park Pilot.

CarManuals2.com

222

Parking and manoeuvring

When the Park Assist system turns the steer-
ing wheel with the vehicle stationary, the instru-
ment panel also displays the symbol  . Keep
the brake pedal depressed while the symbol
remains on the dash panel display to turn the
wheels with the vehicle stopped. This way, the
system will require fewer manoeuvres to com-
plete the parking action.

Trailer mode

The Park Assist system cannot be switched on if
the factory-fitted towing bracket is electrically
connected to a trailer.

After changing a wheel

If, after changing a wheel, the vehicle stops
entering and exiting parking spaces correctly,
the circumference of the new wheel may be
different and the system may need to adapt to
it. The adaptation is automatic and takes place
during driving. Making turns slowly and in both
directions (20 km/h [12 mph]) for a few minutes
may contribute to this adaptation process .

The vehicle can exit the space when a cor-

responding message is displayed on the instru-
ment panel and, in some cases, an acoustic
signal sounds. Take charge of the steering with
the turning angle set by the Park Assist system.

Paying attention to the traffic, exit the parking

space.

Reverse Assist (Rear View
Camera)

Introduction

A camera installed in the rear lid handle assists
the driver with reverse parking or manoeuvring 

››› 

page 185

.

The camera image is viewed together with ori-
entation lines projected on the Infotainment
system screen. Part of the bumper can be seen
at the bottom, which can be used by the driver
as a reference point.

Reverse assist modes

Depending on the equipment, the following
modes are available:

Angle parking:

 reverse parking perpendicu-

lar to the road.

Parallel parking:

 reverse parking parallel to

the road.

Assistance function for hitching a trailer:

helps to hitch a trailer.

Cross traffic:

 monitors cross traffic.

Requirements

To park with reverse assist, the following re-
quirements must be met:

 Do not exceed a speed of approx. 

15 km/h

(9 mph)

.

Parking space width: 

vehicle width + 0.2 m

.

Distance: approx 

1 metre

 from the parking

space (parallel only).

Length of the parking space: 

approx. 8 m

(parallel only)

To display a real image, the following require-
ments must be met:

The luggage compartment rear door is

closed.

The surroundings are on a flat surface.

The vehicle should not be loaded very heavily

at the rear.

WARNING

The reverse assist does not make it possi-

ble to precisely calculate the distance from
obstacles and nor can it overcome the sys-
tem's own limits, hence its negligent use may
cause serious accidents and injuries if used
without due care. The driver should be aware
of his/her surroundings at all times to ensure
safe driving.

The camera lens expands and distorts the

field of view and displays the objects on the
screen in a way that is different from reality.
Distance perception is also distorted.

Due to the screen resolution or light con-

ditions, some items may be blurry or not dis-
played at all. Take care with thin posts, fen-
ces, railings or trees that might not be seen
on the screen and could damage the vehicle.

 The reverse assist has blind spots where

it cannot see people or objects. Monitor the
vehicle's surrounding area at all times.

 The system is not a replacement for driver

awareness. Supervise the parking manoeu-
vre and the vehicle's surrounding area at all
times.

 Do not be distracted from the traffic by

looking at the screen.

 The images are only two-dimensional. Pro-

truding objects or holes in the road, for ex-
ample, are more difficult to detect or may not
be seen at all.

Reverse Assist (Rear View Camera)

 / 

Vehicle load modifies the representation of

the guide lines. The width represented by the
lines decreases with vehicle load. Pay spe-
cial attention to the surroundings when the
inside of the vehicle of the luggage compart-
ment are loaded.

In the following situations, objects or other

vehicles appear to be further away or closer
than they actually are. Pay special attention:

If moving from a flat surface to a slope

and vice-versa.

If the vehicle is heavily loaded.

When the vehicle approaches objects

that are not on the ground surface or that
protrude from it. These objects may be out-
side the camera angle when reversing.

Note

It is important to take great care and pay

special attention if the driver is not familiar
with the system.

The reverse assist reference lines disap-

pear when the rear lid is open.

Troubleshooting

The system behaves differently than expec-
ted

There can be several causes:

The camera is dirty 

››› 

page 371

. In addi-

tion to dirt and snow, camera visibility can be
reduced by detergent residue or any type of
coating.

The system requirements must be met 

››› 

page 226

.

The camera is covered with water.

The factory-fitted towing bracket must

not be electrically connected to a trailer 

››› 

page 299

.

The vehicle has some type of damage in the

camera area, e.g. due to a parking impact.

The field of view of the camera is blocked by

an accessory, e.g. a bicycle carrier system.

Changes have been made to the paint in the

camera area, or structural modifications have
been made to a component such as the run-
ning gear.

Camera with no visibility, fault message, the
system disconnects

Clean the camera or remove possible adhe-

sives or accessories from it 

››› 

page 371

.

Check for visible damage.

Possible solution

Temporarily disconnect the system.

Check if one of the causes indicated above

has occurred.

Once the source of the problem has been

eliminated, the system may be reconnected.

If the system still behaves unpredictably,

have it checked by a specialised workshop.

Peripheral view system
(Top View Camera)

Introduction

Using 4 cameras, the system generates a rep-
resentation that is shown on the infotainment
system display. The cameras are located on
the radiator grille, the exterior mirrors and the
rear lid.
The functions and representations of the Area
View system may vary depending on whether
or not the vehicle has ParkPilot.

WARNING

The image from the cameras does not make
it possible to calculate the distance to the
obstacles (people, vehicles, etc.) precisely,
so using them could cause serious accidents
and injury.

The camera lenses augment and distort

the visual field and the objects on the screen
are seen differently and imprecisely.

Certain objects may not be shown or may

not be shown very clearly, for example, posts
or thin rails, due to the screen resolution or if
light conditions are insufficient.

 The cameras have blind spots in which ob-

stacles and people are not registered.

WARNING

The smart technology incorporated into the
Top View Camera system cannot overcome
the limits imposed by the laws of physics
and it only works within the limits of the sys-
tem. The greater convenience provided by
the Area View system should never tempt
you to take any risk that may compromise
safety. If used negligently or involuntarily,
it may cause serious accidents and injuries.
The system is not a replacement for driver
awareness.

Adapt your speed and driving style to

suit visibility, weather, road and traffic condi-
tions.

Do not be distracted from the traffic by

looking at the screen.

Monitor the area around the vehicle at

all times, since the cameras do not capture
small children, animals and certain objects in
all situations.

The system will probably be unable to rep-

resent all areas clearly.

NOTICE

The camera images are only two-dimen-

sional. Due to a lack of spatial depth, objects
that jut out or holes on the road, for example,
are more difficult to detect or may not be
seen at all.

In certain circumstances, the camera does

not capture objects such as beams, fences,
posts or thin trees, which could damage the
vehicle.

The system displays the auxiliary lines and

boxes regardless of the vehicle's environ-
ment, no objects are detected. The driver is
responsible for determining that the vehicle
will fit in the parking space.

Conditions necessary for the use of the Area
View system

The doors and the rear lid must be closed.

The image must be reliable and clear. For this

reason, for example, the camera lens must be
clean.

The area around the vehicle must be clearly

and totally visible.

The area for parking or manoeuvring should

be a flat surface.

The vehicle should 

not

 be loaded very heav-

ily at the rear.

 The driver must be used to the system.

There should be no damage to the vehicle in

the camera area. If the position or installation
angle of the cameras have been changed, e.g.
after a rear-end collision, the system should be
checked by a specialised workshop.

Special characteristics

The images on the area view system cameras
are only two-dimensional. Due to a lack of spa-
tial depth, it is difficult or impossible to make
out on-screen any holes there may be on the
ground, objects jutting out from the ground or
parts protruding from other vehicles.
Situations in which the objects or other vehicles
appear to be further away or closer than they
really are:

 On moving from a horizontal plane to a slope.

On moving from a slope to a horizontal plane.

If the vehicle is heavily loaded at the rear.

If the vehicle approaches protruding objects.

These objects may be outside the cameras' an-
gle of visibility.

Trailer mode

The Area View system conceals, in the rear
camera area, all the auxiliary guiding lines
when the factory-fitted towing bracket is con-
nected electrically to a trailer 

›››

Note

In order to become familiar with the system
and its functions, SEAT recommends that you
practice handling the Area View system in an
area where there is not too much traffic or in
a car park.

Trailer Assist

Introduction

Trailer assist helps the driver to reverse and ma-
noeuvre with a trailer.
By moving the rotary knob of the exterior mir-
rors, the trailer assist directs the trailer that is
hitched. The driver has to accelerate, change
gears and brake!

System limitations

Under certain circumstances, the camera does
not detect objects such as trailer draw bars,
bars, fences, posts or thin trees, or an open (or
opening) rear lid, which could damage the ve-
hicle.
In order to guarantee good system operation,
keep the camera clean, free of snow or ice, and
do not cover it with adhesives or other objects.
Do not allow the draw bar to be covered by
external influences.
Use the trailer manoeuvre assistant only when
the rear lid is closed correctly.

NOTICE

The trailer maneuver assistant does not take
the vehicle’s surrounding as a reference. No
obstacle detection takes place. The driver
alone has to assess whether it is possible to
manoeuvre safely with the tow vehicle and
trailer set.

 Always observe the movement of the

trailer and, if necessary, actively interrupt
the manoeuvre to avoid damage. Even if
the trailer manoeuvring assistant is operated
correctly, on rare occasions the trailer may
move in a different way to the setting.

Do not rely solely on the indications on the

instrument cluster display.

Note

The trailer manoeuvre assistant automati-
cally switches off approx. 10 minutes after
being activated. The assistant is also deacti-
vated if the driver does not perform any ac-
tion over the course of approx. 3 minutes.

Requirements

The following requirements must be met for the
trailer manoeuvre assistant to work:

 The engine is running.

The ESC must be connected.

The driver's door and the rear lid are closed.

The exterior mirrors are not folded.

Both the tow vehicle and trailer are stopped.

The maximum bending angle has not been

exceeded.

The length of the trailer’s drawbar has been

determined.

Determine the length of the trailer's drawbar

In order for the trailer manoeuvre assistant
to determine the length of the trailer’s draw-
bar, drive the vehicle-trailer set through some
turning manoeuvres or curves. The more pre-
cisely the length of the drawbar is determined,
the wider the angles that will be available
when manoeuvring. The assistant subdivides
the maximum available end stops of the angle
indicator into four levels: approx. 30°, 45°, 60°
and 75°.

Note

For technical reasons, the trailer manoeu-
vre assistant cannot always correctly detect
trailers with LED technology taillights.
