The rear traffic monitor system consists of two features to assists the driver when carrying out a reversing manouevre:

  • Rear Traffic Warning: The Rear Traffic Warning feature detects cross traffic moving target objects from speeds of approximately 3.6 km/h (2.2 mph) up to 70 km/h (43 mph). If activated, the touchscreen displays the collision impact alert icon (1) on the relevant side(s) of the screen. The collision impact alert icon informs the driver the vehicle is about to reverse into the path of a moving object. If a detected object is calculated to be a collision threat, a red coloured block displays. An audible warning also sounds when the collision threat is red.

    NOTES

    Audible warnings do not sound if the vehicle is stationary. Additionally, audible warnings are not repeated until the collision threat visual alert disappears.

  • Rear Traffic Braking: In the event of an imminent collision, the Rear Traffic Braking feature applies the brakes to try and prevent an accident. All emergency braking warnings are displayed via the instrument panel.

The Rear Traffic Warning feature is active when Reverse (R) gear is selected. The feature also becomes active from a stationary position and remains active up to speeds of approximately 16 km/h (10 mph).

If required, the Rear Traffic Warning feature can be switched on or off via the driver assistance menu. To switch the Rear Traffic Warning feature 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. Rear Traffic Warning: Touch to switch the toggle on or off.

    NOTES

    If Rear Traffic Warning is switched off, the collision impact alert icon does not display, and no audio alerts sound.

The Rear Traffic Braking feature is active when the vehicle detects reverse movement and remains active up to speeds of approximately 10 km/h (5 mph).

The Rear Traffic Braking feature can also be switched on or off via the driver assistance menu. To switch the Rear Traffic Braking feature on or off, complete the following steps:

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

  2. Select Vehicle.

The touchscreen displays the Rear traffic monitor unavailable icon (3) if either the Rear Traffic Warning or Rear Traffic Braking feature is not available, or if a fault is detected. The icon (3) also displays if both features are not available, or a fault is detected.

NOTES

If a fault in a single sensor is detected, the entire rear traffic monitor feature is disabled.

NOTES

If the rear sensors are blocked, the rear traffic monitor’s performance will be reduced, or the feature may be disabled all together. In the event that this occurs, the instrument panel displays a message requesting the rear bumper to be cleared of the obstacle and icon (3) displays on the touchscreen.

If a fault is not rectified when the vehicle's electrical system is switched off and then on again, consult a retailer/authorised repairer.
