Make sure the relevant safety warnings and notes have been read and understood before driving the vehicle. See DRIVING AIDS SAFETY.


Make sure the Emergency Lane Keep Assist (ELKA) system is disabled when connecting a trailer.


Make sure the ELKA system is switched off before driving off-road.


The ELKA system automatically switches on every time the vehicle’s electrical system switched on.

The Emergency Lane Keep Assist (ELKA) system attempts to provide corrective steering inputs if it determines the following:

  • The vehicle is getting too close to horizontal road edges. For example, grass, mud, and snow.

  • The vehicle is getting too close to vertical road edges. For example, cones, concrete barriers, walls, and parked vehicles.

  • The vehicle is drifting towards adjacent lane where oncoming vehicles are detected.


ELKA operates irrespective of the use of the direction indicators.

The ELKA system can be switched on or off via the touchscreen. To switch the system on or off, complete the following steps:

  1. Touch the settings icon from any screen. See SYSTEM SETTINGS.

  2. Select Vehicle.

  3. Select Driver Assistance.

  4. Select Collision avoidance.

  5. Emergency lane keeping: Touch to switch the toggle on or off.

The instrument panel displays visual warnings to inform the driver of the ELKA system's status. The vehicle’s speakers also provides audio warnings.


The Head-Up Display also displays a warning.
