DRIVER ASSISTANCE SYSTEMS
When you’re turning into a tricky parking spot, City Mode is a
handy feature that lightens the KARL’s steering to make
everything a breeze. You can also park faster in those tight
spaces with the help of optional rear parking distance sensors,
a feature only available in a handful of cars in this class.
Parking on a slope is effortless in the KARL with hill start assist to
help you pull away smoothly without any roll back. And, with
cruise control as standard on all models, you can safely negotiate
speed restrictions whenever and wherever they crop up.
Problems solved.
// City mode gives your steering extra power for easier parking
and tight city centre manoeuvres
// Optional rear parking distance sensors help you park
confidently with sensors to warn of objects behind
// Hill start assist helps you pull away on a hill smoothly without
rolling back downhill
// Cruise control with speed limiter keeps you safely within the
speed limit
