Using data captured by the 12 ultrasonic sensors integrated discreetly into the bumpers, the acoustic and visual parking system, front, side and rear assists with entering and exiting parking spaces and with manoeuvring.

Based on the steering angle and direction of travel, the distance to detected objects is shown in a selective, optical display on the upper MMI touch response screen. Obstacles detected outside the driving path are shown as a white segment. Red segments represent obstacles in the driving path. A virtual driving path display additionally provides guidelines at the sides, which are calculated in advance based on the current steering angle.

The function is activated by selecting reverse gear, via a button on the centre console and, as an option, automatically as soon as the vehicle moves closer to a detected obstacle at a speed below 10 km/h.
