A Vehicle image

The vehicle image will show you whether the system has detected a vehicle in front.

B Distance

The arrows and scale indicate the distance to the vehicle in front.

  • No vehicle in front: If there is no vehicle in front, no arrows will be shown.
  • Vehicle in front: If a vehicle is detected in front, the arrows will be on the scale. The green area of the scale represents the distance setting. If you approach the vehicle in front slowly, the arrows will move from the grey area into the green area of the scale.
  • Driver intervention prompt: If you approach the vehicle in front quickly, the arrows act as a warning. When the actual distance is shorter (or is likely to become shorter) than the distance selected, the arrows move into the red area of the scale. In certain situations, you may need to intervene as the driver ⇒ page 138, Driver intervention prompt.
