General information
The ultrasound sensors for measuring the dis‐
tances are located in the rear bumper.
The maneuvering range, depending on the ob‐
stacle and environmental conditions, is approx.
6 ft/2 m.
An acoustic warning is first given in the follow‐
ing situations:
By the two rear corner sensors at ap‐
prox. 24 in/60 cm from the object.
By the rear middle sensors at ap‐
prox. 5 ft/1.50 m from the object.
When a collision is imminent.
Safety information

personal responsibility to correctly assess the
traffic situation. Based on the limits of the sys‐
tem, it cannot independently react to all traffic
situations. There is a risk of an accident. Adjust

traffic closely and actively intervene in the re‐
spective situations.◀
Due to high speeds when PDC is acti‐
vated, the warning can be delayed due to
physical circumstances. There is a risk of injury

an object too fast. Avoid driving off fast while
PDC is not yet active.◀

is detected to the left rear of the vehicle, a sig‐
nal tone sounds from the left rear speaker.
