Anti-theft alarm system

Introduction

The alarm system triggers audible and visual signals if an attempt is made to

break into the vehicle (hereafter referred to as alarm).

The alarm system is activated automatically approximately 30 seconds after

the vehicle is locked. This is automatically disabled after release.

CAUTION

Before leaving the vehicle, it must be checked that all of the windows, doors

and the sliding/tilting roof are locked in order to ensure the full functionality of

the anti-theft alarm system.

Note

The alarm system has its own power source, service life of which is 5 years. In

order to ensure functionality of the alarm system, we recommend that you get

the alarm checked after this time by a specialist garage.

vated on the vehicle with an activated warning system.

Opening the bonnet.

Opening the boot lid.

Opening the doors.

Manipulation of the ignition lock.

Towing the vehicle.

Movement in the vehicle.

Sudden and significant voltage drop of the electrical system.

the lock cylinder.
The alarm is switched off by pressing the  button on the key or switching on

the ignition.

Interior monitor and towing protection

» page 65

.

WARNING

Ensure that the lock is properly engaged after closing the lid. Otherwise,

the lid might open while the vehicle is moving - risk of accident.

Never drive with the lid open or unlatched, as otherwise exhaust gases

may get into the interior of the vehicle – risk of poisoning!

Only open and close the lid when no one is located in the opening/closing

range – risk of injury!

Make sure that no limbs are caught or crushed when closing the lid - risk

of injury!

CAUTION

Do not attempt to close the lid instructionly during electrical motion - there is a

risk of damaging the electric lid operation.

Lock the vehicle before driving through a car wash (or with the central lock-

ing button). In some car washes the boot lid might open automatically due to

the pressure action of the washing brushes - there is a risk of damage to the

vehicle interior, as well as to the objects being transported.

CAUTION

Before opening / closing the flap, check that there are no objects in the

opening / closing area that could damage the flap, and if there are any objects

in the immediate vicinity of the vehicle that could damage the vehicle interior

and the objects being transported.

In certain circumstances, if the lid is loaded (e.g. by a thick layer of snow), the

opening process of the lid can be interrupted. Remove the snow from the lid to

re-enable the electrical operation.

If the lid closes automatically (e.g. under load of snow), you will hear an inter-

mittent beep.

The flap is always to be close before disconnecting the battery.

Xenon headlight

The Xenon headlights (hereinafter referred to as just system) use the driving

data to automatically ensure the for the best possible light cone in front of the

vehicle.
The system operates automatically in the following modes: urban, extra-urban,

highway, rain, fog, adjusting the lighting direction of the headlights for the

road illumination in curves.
The system works as long as the light switch is in position .

WARNING

If there is a system malfunction the headlights are automatically lowered to

the emergency position, which prevents a possible dazzling of oncoming

traffic. This reduces the cone of light in front of the vehicle. Seek help from

a specialist garage.

function CORNER

The CORNER function automatically switches on the fog lights on the respec-

tive side of the vehicle (e.g. when cornering or steering), if the following condi-

tions are fulfilled.

The turn signal is turned on or the front wheels are severely locked (in the

event of conflict between the two versions, has turn signal has the higher

priority).
The vehicle speed is below 40 km/h.
The low beam is switched on.
The fog lights are not switched on.

The two fog lights are switched on when you shift into the reverse gear.

COMING HOME / LEAVING HOME

The function COMING HOME ensures that the vehicle's environment is illumi-

nated after switching off the ignition and opening the driver's door.
The function LEAVING HOME ensures that the vehicle's environment is illumi-

nated after unlocking the vehicle with the radio remote control unit.

switch is in the position .

The two functions can be used in Infotainment in the menu 



/  →  → Light

(activated/deactivated and adjusted).

CAUTION

Poorer visibility is evaluated by a sensor mounted below the windscreen in

the holder of the rear-view mirror. Do not cover the sensor - the system can

be affected.

If this option is always enabled, then the battery is heavily loaded.

Note

The hazard warning light system can also be operated if the ignition is switch-

ed off.
If one of the airbags is deployed, the hazard warning light system will switch

on automatically.
The automatic activation of hazard warning lights can take place during a

heavy braking. After starting or accelerating the hazard warning system is au-

tomatically switched off.
When the hazard warning system is on and the turn signal is switched on, the

Driving abroad

When driving in countries with opposing traffic system (traffic on the

left/right), headlights may dazzle oncoming traffic.
Therefore, the Xenon headlight setting must be adapted by turning on travel

mode in infotainment in the menu 



/  →  → Light menu. In this mode, no

automatic beam adjustment is made ahead of the vehicle.

Headlight Assist (Light Assist / Dynamic Light Assist)

Introduction

Fig. 71 

Sensor window for the head-

light assistant

The headlight assistant (referred to as just system in the following) automati-

cally switches the main beam on/off, if necessary, adjusts the beam of the

front headlights in accordance with the existing traffic situation (other vehi-

cles) and environmental conditions (e.g. driving through a lit village).
The switching on/off of the main beam, if necessary, the adaptation of the

headlight, is controlled by a sensor 

» Fig. 71

.

Depending on the equipment, the following system versions can exist.
Light Assist automatically switches the main beam on/off.
Dynamic Light Assist automatically adjusts the light cone shape of the front head-

lights in order to prevent dazzling the oncoming and preceding vehicles, while

ensuring the highest possible illumination of the road edges.

If the driving mode Eco 

» page 244

Select the driving mode (Driving Mode

Selection) or travel mode 

» page 74

Driving abroad is selected, the automatic

adjustment of the beam is deactivated, Dynamic Light Assist only switches the

main beam on/off automatically.
If the Xenon headlights are in the mode rain or fog 

» page 72

, then Dynamic Light

Assist is deactivated.
If there is a fault, the error message will appear in the instrument cluster dis-

play. Seek help from a specialist garage.

WARNING

The system is used only for support, thus the driver is not released from his

obligation to manually adjust the main or low beam according to the given

ambient conditions (e.g. in unfavourable lighting and weather conditions, as

when passing poorly lit road users, if necessary, when the area in front of

the sensor is covered by an obstacle).

CAUTION

Do not attach any stickers or similar objects in front of the sensor on the wind-

screen to avoid impairing the function of the system.

Note

The adjustment of the headlight assistant in Infotainment is stored (depending

on the Infotainment type) in the active user account personalisation
