Make sure the relevant safety warnings and cautions have been read and understood before operating the parking features. See PARKING FEATURES SAFETY.


At vehicle start-up, the parking sensors may not detect low or high objects, even if the objects were detected during the original parking manoeuvre.


When the parking aid system is active, the system only provides warning tones when a threat is detected.


Only vehicles with 360° parking aid detect objects along the sides of the vehicle. Vehicles without the 360° parking aid only detect objects front and rear of the vehicle.

The parking aid system works in conjunction with the camera system. The system assists the driver while manoeuvring the vehicle at low speed in confined spaces.

A 360° vehicle plan view displays detected objects along the front, rear, and sides of the vehicle, when active. Object tracking is also used along the sides of the vehicle to monitor the vehicle’s blind spots. If a detected object is calculated to be a collision threat, it is displayed as a coloured line over a black background. The distance from a collision threat is colour coded: yellow to amber to red, with red being the closest. Other detected objects that are not a collision threat are displayed as grey lines.

Any detected objects considered a collision threat will trigger repeating warning tones. The warning tones increase in intensity as the collision threat becomes closer. The warning tones become continuous when the object is within 200 mm of the vehicle. Warning tones sound from the area in which a collision threat has been detected.

While the vehicle is passing an object within its sensor range, the vehicle's integrated systems calculate its steering trajectory. The touchscreen displays the trajectory lines on the 360° vehicle plan view and the camera main screen. The steering trajectory lines indicate the projected path of the vehicle, based on the current steering wheel position. See ON-ROAD CAMERA VIEWS.
