2020 Defender



ELKA feature detecting oncoming vehicles is only operational when detecting oncoming vehicle in adjacent road lane.

The Emergency Lane Keep Assist (ELKA) system is not active when:

  • Reverse (R) or Park (P) is selected.

  • The brake pedal is pressed.

  • The vehicle’s speed is approximately:

    Below 64 km/h (40 mph) or above 180 km/h (112 mph) when ELKA is detecting road edges.

    Below 64 km/h (40 mph) or above 120 km/h (75 mph) when ELKA is detecting oncoming vehicles.

  • The road edges are not detected.

  • Turning in tight road bends.

  • The driver has applied excessive steering force.

  • Driving in lanes narrower than approximately 3 m or wider than approximately 4 m.

  • A fault occurs in the system.

The ELKA system does not operate if:

  • The windscreen area in front of the rear-view mirror becomes blocked by stickers, mud, snow, or debris.

  • Adverse weather conditions exist. For example, heavy fog, rain, or snow.

  • Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) is active.

  • Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) is active.

  • The driver has applied a counter steering input that is greater than the steering input from the ELKA system.

The instrument panel displays messages to inform the driver of any performance or system issues.


If a system fault has been detected with the instrument panel or Head-Up Display (HUD), the ELKA continues to operate as intended.
