At a steady speed (above approx.
20 mph (30 km/h)), press the switch 2
on side a (+): the function is activated

CRUISE CONTROL/SPEED LIMITER: cruise control function (4/4)Switching off the function
The cruise control function is deacti-
vated if you press switch 1: in this case
a speed is no longer stored. The green
warning light and message on the
instrument panel goes out to confirm
that the function is deactivated.
Returning to the cruising speed
If a speed is stored, it can be recalled,
once you are sure that the road con-
ditions are suitable (traffic, road sur-
face, weather conditions, etc.). Press
3 (R) if the vehicle speed is
above 20 mph (30 km/h).
When the stored speed is recalled,
activation of the cruise control is con-
firmed by the illumination of the cruis-
ing speed in green, along with the mes-
sage “Check cruise control”.
NB: if the speed previously stored is
much higher than the current speed,
the vehicle will accelerate more rapidly
to reach this threshold.
When the cruise control function
is put on standby, pressing the
switch 2 on side a (+) reactivates
the cruise control function with-
out taking into account the stored
speed: it is the speed at which the
vehicle is moving that is taken into

PARKING DISTANCE CONTROL (1/5)
Ultrasonic sensors in the rear bumper
measure the distance between the ve-
hicle and an obstacle.
This measurement is indicated by
beeps which become more frequent the
closer you come to the obstacle, until
they become a continuous beep when
the vehicle is approximately 20 to
30 centimetres from the obstacle.
The system detects obstacles to the
front, the rear and the sides of the ve-
The parking distance control system
is only activated when the vehicle is
driven at a speed below approximately
6 mph (10 km/h).
This function is an addi-
tional aid that indicates the
distance between the vehi-
cle and an obstacle whilst
reversing, using sound signals.
Under no circumstances should it
replace the driver’s care or respon-
sibility whilst reversing.
The driver should always look out
for sudden hazards during driv-
ing: always ensure that there are
no moving obstacles (such as a
child, animal, pram or bicycle, etc.)
or small, narrow objects such as
stones or posts in your path when
Ensure that the ultrasonic sensors indi-
cated by arrows 1 are not obscured (by
dirt, mud, snow, etc.).

Most objects located less near the
front, rear and sides of the vehicle are
Depending on the distance of the ob-
stacle, the frequency of the beep will
be higher while approaching it, and will
become a solid beep around 20 cm for
obstacles to the sides, and 30 cm for
obstacles to the front or rear. Green,
orange and red zones will be displayed
on the display C.
PARKING DISTANCE CONTROL (2/5)
Note: the display 2 shows the vehicle
surroundings and emits beeps.
It is necessary to travel a few metres
before the side detection is activated.

An impact to the under-
side of the vehicle while
manoeuvring (e.g.: strik-
ing a post, raised kerb or
other street furniture) may result in
damage to the vehicle (e.g.: defor-
mation of an axle).
To avoid any risk of accident, have
your vehicle checked by an ap-
Detection of obstacles to the side
Depending on the direction of the
wheels, the system determines the tra-
jectory of the vehicle and notifies the
driver of any risk or otherwise of a col-
lision with an obstacle 3 to the side of

Automatic deactivation of the
parking distance control
The system deactivates:
– when the vehicle speed is above ap-proximately 6 mph (10 km/h);
– depending on the model, when the vehicle is stationary for more than
approximately 5 seconds and an ob-
stacle is detected (such as when in a
traffic jam, etc.);
– when the vehicle is in neutral for manual gearboxes, or in position N
or P for automatic gearboxes.
PARKING DISTANCE CONTROL (5/5)
When the system detects an operating
fault, a beep sounds for approximately

trajectory according to the position of
the steering wheel.
Make sure that the camera is not ob-
scured (by dirt, mud, snow, etc.).
Moving into reverse gear, the camera 1
located on the tailgate provides a view
of the area behind the vehicle on the
multimedia screen 2, accompanied by
one or two moving or fixed guide lines 4
This system is initially used with the aid
of several gauges (mobile for trajectory
and fixed for distance). When the red
zone is reached, use the bumper image
to stop accurately. Fixed gauge 3
The fixed clearance gauge comprises
A, B and C , indicat-
ing the distance behind the vehicle:
– A (red) approximately 30 centime-
tres from the vehicle;
– B (yellow) approximately 70 centi-
metres from the vehicle;
– C (green) approximately 150 centi-
metres from the vehicle.
This gauge remains fixed and indicates
the vehicle trajectory if the wheels are
in line with the vehicle.
