Beyond the warning required by
ECE R94.02, for safety reasons a
forward-facing child restraint system
must only be used subject to the
instructions and restrictions in the
table 3 68.
The airbag label is located on both
sides of the front passenger sun visor.
Airbag deactivation 3 64.
Front airbag system
The front airbag system consists of
one airbag in the steering wheel and
one in the roof on the front passenger
side. These can be identified by the
word AIRBAG.
The front airbag system is triggered in
the event of a front-end impact of a
certain severity. The ignition must be
switched on.
9 Warning
Optimum protection is only
provided when the seat is in the
proper position.
Seat position 3 47.
Keep the area in which the airbag
inflates clear of obstructions.
Fit the seat belt correctly and
engage securely. Only then is the
airbag able to protect.
Side airbag system
The inflated airbags cushion the
impact, thereby reducing the risk of
injury to the upper body and head of
the front seat occupants
considerably.
Seats, restraints
The side airbag system consists of an
airbag in each front seat backrest.
This can be identified by the word
AIRBAG.
The side airbag system is triggered in
the event of a side impact of a certain
severity. The ignition must be
switched on.
63
9 Warning
Keep the area in which the airbag
inflates clear of obstructions.
Note
Only use protective seat covers that
have been approved for the vehicle.
Be careful not to cover the airbags.
Curtain airbag system
The curtain airbag system consists of
an airbag in the roof frame on each
side. This can be identified by the
word AIRBAG on the roof pillars.
The curtain airbag system is triggered
in the event of a side-on impact of a
certain severity. The ignition must be
switched on.
The inflated airbags cushion the
impact, thereby reducing the risk of
injury to the upper body and pelvis in
the event of a side-on collision
considerably.
The inflated airbags cushion the
impact, thereby reducing the risk of
injury to the head in the event of a
side-on impact considerably.
9 Warning
Keep the area in which the airbag
inflates clear of obstructions.
The hooks on the handles in the
roof frame are only suitable for
hanging up light articles of
clothing, without coat hangers. Do
not keep any items in these
clothes.
64
Seats, restraints
Airbag deactivation
The front passenger airbag system
must be deactivated for child restraint
system on the passenger seat
according to the instructions in the
table 3 68. The side airbag and
curtain airbag systems, the belt
pretensioners and all driver airbag
systems will remain active.
Use the ignition key to choose the
position:
OFF* : front passenger airbag is
deactivated and will not
inflate in the event of a
collision, control indicator
OFF* illuminates
continuously in the centre
console
ONÓ : front passenger airbag is
active
9 Danger
The front passenger airbag system
can be deactivated via a keyoperated switch on the passenger
side of the instrument panel.
Deactivate passenger airbag only
in combination with the use of a
child restraint system, subject to
the instructions and restrictions in
the table 3 68.
Otherwise, there is a risk of fatal
injury for a person occupying a
seat with a deactivated front
passenger airbag.
If the control indicator Ó illuminates
for approx. 60 seconds after the
ignition is switched on, the front
passenger airbag system will inflate
in the event of a collision.
If the control indicator * illuminates
after the ignition is switched on, the
front passenger airbag system is
deactivated. It stays on while the
airbag is deactivated.
If both control indicators are
illuminated at the same time, there is
a system failure. The status of the
system is not discernible, therefore
no person is allowed to occupy the
front passenger seat. Contact a
workshop immediately.
Seats, restraints
Consult a workshop immediately if
neither of the two control indicators
are illuminated.
In the event of a fault a warning
message is displayed in the Driver
Information Centre and warning
chime will sound.
Change status only when the vehicle
is stopped with the ignition off.
Status remains until the next change.

The payload is the difference
between the permitted gross
vehicle weight (see identification
plate 3 257) and the EC kerb
weight.
88
●
Storage
To calculate the payload, enter
the data for your vehicle in the
weights table at the front of this
manual.
The EC kerb weight includes
weights for the driver (68 kg),
luggage (7 kg) and all fluids (fuel
tank 90% full).
Optional equipment and
accessories increase the kerb
weight.
Driving with a roof load increases
the sensitivity of the vehicle to
cross-winds and has a
detrimental effect on vehicle
handling due to the vehicle's
higher centre of gravity.
Distribute the load evenly and
secure it properly with retaining
straps. Adjust the tyre pressure
and vehicle speed according to
the load conditions. Check and
retighten the straps frequently.
Do not drive faster
than 120 km/h.
The permissible roof load is:
●
80 kg for vehicles with roof
railing
● 100 kg for vehicles without
roof railing and with two roof
racks
● 150 kg for vehicles without
roof railing and with three
roof racks, except vehicles
with seven seats
● 100 kg for vehicles without
roof railing and with three
roof racks and seven seats
The roof load is the combined weight
of the roof rack and the load.

and could be fatal if inhaled.
If exhaust gases enter the interior
of the vehicle, open the windows.
Have the cause of the fault
rectified by a workshop.
Avoid driving with an open load
compartment, otherwise exhaust
gases could enter the vehicle.
Exhaust filter
Automatic cleaning process
The exhaust filter system filters soot
particles out of the exhaust gases.
The start of saturation of the exhaust
filter is indicated by the temporary
illumination of % or H,
accompanied by a message in the
Driver Information Centre.
153
As soon as the traffic conditions
permit, regenerate the filter by driving
at a vehicle speed of at least 60 km/h
until the control indicator
extinguishes.
Note
On a new vehicle, the first exhaust
filter regeneration operations may
be accompanied by a burning smell,
which is normal. Following
prolonged operation of the vehicle at
very low speed or at idle, water
vapour can be emitted at the
exhaust on acceleration. This does
not affect the behaviour of the
vehicle or the environment.
Cleaning process not possible
If % or H stays on, accompanied
by an audible signal and a message,
this indicates that the exhaust filter
additive level is too low.
The reservoir must be topped-up
without delay. Seek the assistance of
a workshop.
154
Driving and operating
Catalytic converter
AdBlue
The catalytic converter reduces the
amount of harmful substances in the
exhaust gases.
General information
Caution
Fuel grades other than those listed
on pages 3 205, 3 262 could
damage the catalytic converter or
electronic components.
Unburnt petrol will overheat and
damage the catalytic converter.
Therefore avoid excessive use of
the starter, running the fuel tank
dry and starting the engine by
pushing or towing.
In the event of misfiring, uneven
engine running, a reduction in engine
performance or other unusual
problems, have the cause of the fault
rectified by a workshop as soon as
possible. In an emergency, driving
can be continued for a short period,
keeping vehicle speed and engine
speed low.
Caution
The selective catalytic reduction
(BlueInjection) is a method to
substantially reduce the nitrogen
oxides in the exhaust emission. This
is achieved by injecting a Diesel
Exhaust Fluid (DEF) into the exhaust
system. The ammonia released by
the fluid reacts with nitrous gases
(NOx) from the exhaust and turns it
into nitrogen and water.
The designation of this fluid is
AdBlue®. It is a non-toxic, nonflammable, colourless and odourless
fluid which consists of 32% urea and
68% water.
9 Warning
Avoid contact of your eyes or skin
with AdBlue.
In case of eye or skin contact,
rinse off with water.
Avoid contact of the paintwork with
AdBlue.
In case of contact, rinse off with
water.
AdBlue freezes at a temperature of
approx. -11 °C. As the vehicle is
equipped with an AdBlue pre-heater,
the emissions reduction at low
temperatures is ensured. The AdBlue
pre-heater works automatically.
The typical AdBlue consumption is
approx. 0.85 l per 1000 km, but can
also be higher depending on driving
behaviour (e.g. high load or towing).
Level warnings
Depending on the calculated range of
AdBlue, different messages are
displayed in the Driver Information
Centre. The messages and the

Refilling AdBlue
Caution
Only use AdBlue that complies
with European standards
DIN 70 070 and ISO 22241-1.
Do not use additives.
Do not dilute AdBlue.
Otherwise the selective catalytic
reduction system could be
damaged.
Note
Whenever a filling pump with a
nozzle for passenger cars is not
available at a filling station, use only
AdBlue bottles or canisters with a
sealed refill adapter for refilling, to
prevent splashback and overspill,
and in order to ensure that the fumes
from the tank are captured and do
not emerge. AdBlue in bottles or
canisters is available in many filling
stations and can be purchased e.g.
at Opel dealers and other retail
outlets.
Since AdBlue has a limited
durability, check the date of expiry
before refilling.
Note
Refill the tank to a level of at least
5 l to ensure that the new AdBlue
level is being detected.
In case AdBlue refill is not
successfully detected:
1. Continuously drive the vehicle
for 10 min making sure that
vehicle speed is always higher
than 20 km/h.
2. If AdBlue refill is detected
successfully, AdBlue supplydriven warnings or limitations will
disappear.
If AdBlue refill is still not detected,
seek the assistance of a workshop.
If AdBlue must be refilled at
temperatures below -11 °C, the
refilling of AdBlue may not be
detected by the system. In this
event, park the vehicle in a space
with a higher ambient temperature
until AdBlue is liquified.
Note
When unscrewing the protective cap
from the filler neck, ammonia fumes
may emerge. Do not inhale as the
fumes have a pungent smell. The
fumes are not harmful by inhalation.
The AdBlue tank should be filled
completely. This must be done if the
warning message regarding
prevention of an engine restart is
already displayed.
Driving and operating
The vehicle must be parked on a level
surface.
The filler neck for AdBlue is located
behind the fuel filler flap, which is
located at right rear side of the
vehicle.
If the vehicle is equipped with an
electronic key system, the fuel filler
flap can only be opened if the vehicle
is unlocked.
1. Remove key from ignition switch.
2. Close all doors to avoid ammonia
fumes entering the interior of the
vehicle.
3. Release the fuel filler flap by
pushing the flap 3 206.
4. Unscrew protective cap from the
filler neck.
5. Open AdBlue canister.
6. Mount one end of the hose on the
canister and screw the other end
on the filler neck.
7. Lift the canister until it is empty, or
until the flow from the canister has
stopped. This can take up to five
minutes.
8. Place the canister on the ground
to empty the hose, wait 15 s.
9. Unscrew the hose from the filler
neck.
10. Mount the protective cap and turn
clockwise until it engages.

Brakes
The brake system comprises two
independent brake circuits.
If a brake circuit fails, the vehicle can
still be braked using the other brake
circuit. However, braking effect is
achieved only when the brake pedal
is depressed firmly. Considerably
more force is needed for this. The
braking distance is extended. Seek
the assistance of a workshop before
continuing the journey.
When the engine is not running, the
support of the brake servo unit
disappears once the brake pedal has
been depressed once or twice.
Braking effect is not reduced, but
braking requires significantly greater
force. It is especially important to bear
this in mind when being towed.
Control indicator m 3 105.
Antilock brake system
Antilock brake system (ABS)
prevents the wheels from locking.
162
Driving and operating
ABS starts to regulate brake pressure
as soon as a wheel shows a tendency
to lock. The vehicle remains
steerable, even during hard braking.
ABS control is made apparent
through a pulse in the brake pedal
and the noise of the regulation
process.
For optimum braking, keep the brake
pedal fully depressed throughout the
braking process, despite the fact that
the pedal is pulsating. Do not reduce
the pressure on the pedal.
When braking in an emergency, the
hazard warning flashers are switched
on automatically depending on the
force of deceleration. They are
switched off automatically the first
time you accelerate.
After starting off, the system performs
a self-test which may be audible.

Selective ride control
Caution
The vehicle is designed to drive
principally on-road, but it also
enables driving off-road
occasionally.
However, do not drive on terrain
where the vehicle could be
damaged due to obstacles, such
as rocks among others and on
terrain with steep inclines and
poor grip.
Do not cross waters.
Caution
When driving off-road, sudden
motion and manoeuvres can
cause a collision or losing control.
Selective ride control is designed to
optimise traction in low-grip
conditions (snow, mud and sand).
It adapts to the terrain by acting on the
front wheels, in doing so this saves
the weight normally associated with a
more conventional four wheel drive
system.
Selective ride control allows to
choose between five driving modes:
● ESC off mode 9
●
standard mode 2
●
snow mode 3
●
mud mode 4
● sand mode 1
The several modes can be activated
by turning the control.
A LED illuminates and a status
message appears in the Driver
Information Centre to confirm the
chosen mode.
Driving and operating
ESC off mode 9
The ESC and Traction Control are
deactivated in this mode.
An LED in the button a illuminates.
ESC and Traction Control are
reactivated automatically from
50 km/h or everytime the ignition is
switched on.
Standard mode 2
This mode is calibrated for a low level
of wheel spin, based on the different
types of grip generally encountered in
normal day to day driving.
Everytime the ignition is switched off,
the system is automatically reset to
this mode.
Snow mode 3
This mode adapts to the grip
conditions encountered by each
wheel when starting.
When advancing, the system
optimises wheel spin to guarantee the
best acceleration based on the
available traction. Recommended in
cases of deep snow and steep
inclines.
This mode is active up to a speed of
50 km/h.
Mud mode 4
This mode allows considerable wheel
spin at start-up for the wheel with the
least grip, this removes mud and reestablishes traction.
Simultaneously, the wheel with the
most grip is provided with the most
torque possible.
This mode is active up to a speed of
80 km/h.
Sand mode 1
This mode allows a small amount of
simultaneous wheel spin on the two
drive wheels, enabling the vehicle to
advance and reduce the risk of
sinking.
This mode is active up to a speed of
120 km/h.
169
Caution
Do not use the other modes on
sand as the vehicle may become
stuck.

Adaptive cruise control
The adaptive cruise control is an
enhancement to the conventional
cruise control with the additional
feature of maintaining a certain
following distance to the vehicle
ahead. It uses a camera at the top of
Driving and operating
the windscreen and camera sensors
to detect the vehicles ahead. If no
vehicle is detected in the driving path,
the adaptive cruise control will
behave like a conventional cruise
control.
The adaptive cruise control
automatically decelerates the vehicle
when approaching a slower moving
vehicle. It then adjusts the vehicle
speed to follow the vehicle ahead at
the selected following distance. The
vehicle speed increases or decreases
to follow the vehicle ahead, but will
not exceed the set speed. It may
apply limited braking with activated
brake lights.
If the vehicle ahead accelerates or
changes lane, the adaptive cruise
control progressively accelerates the
vehicle to return to the stored set
speed. If the driver operates the turn
lights to overtake a slower vehicle, the
adaptive cruise control allows the
vehicle to temporarily approach the
vehicle ahead to help passing it.
However, the set speed will never be
exceeded.
The adaptive cruise control can store
set speeds for manual transmission.
If the vehicle ahead is moving too
slowly and the selected following
distance cannot be maintained
anymore, a warning chime is given
and a message is displayed in the
Driver Information Centre. The
message prompts the driver to take
back control of the vehicle. On
vehicles with automatic transmission,
the system can brake the vehicle until
a full stop.
The adaptive cruise control can store
set speeds over 30 km/h for manual
transmission. If the vehicle ahead is
moving too slowly and the selected
following distance cannot be
maintained anymore, a warning
chime is given and a message is
displayed in the Driver Information
Centre. The message prompts the
driver to take back control of the
vehicle. On vehicles with automatic
transmission, the system can brake
the vehicle until a full stop.
175
9 Warning
The complete driver attention is
always required while driving with
adaptive cruise control. The driver
stays fully in control of the vehicle
because the brake pedal, the
accelerator pedal and the button
Ñ have priority over any adaptive
cruise control operation.
Switching on the system
Press C, the symbolC is indicated in
the Driver Information Centre. The
system is still not active.
176

Taking over the speed limit from
the traffic sign assistant
The intelligent speed adaptation
informs the driver when a speed limit
is detected by the traffic sign
assistant. The detected speed limit
can be taken over as new set speed
for the adaptive cruise control.
With the camera at the top of the
windscreen, this system detects and
reads speed limit and end of speed
limit signs. The system also takes
account of information on speed limits
from the navigation map data.
The function can be activated or
deactivated in the personalisation
menu 3 118.
If the adaptive cruise control is active,

9 Warning
●
Driver's attention
●
Use the adaptive cruise control
carefully on bends or mountain
roads, as it can lose the vehicle
ahead and needs time to detect it
again.
●
●
●
The adaptive cruise control
considers stopped vehicles only
at low speed.
Do not use the adaptive cruise
control when towing a trailer.
Do not use the adaptive cruise
control on roads with an incline of
more than 10%.
Bends
The system's automatic brake
force does not permit hard braking
and the braking level may not be
sufficient to avoid a collision.
Press C, the adaptive cruise control
mode is disabled and the adaptive
cruise control indication extinguishes
in the Driver Information Centre.
Pressing ß to activate the speed
limiter deactivates adaptive cruise
control.
Switching off the ignition deletes the
stored set speed.
●
Do not use the system on
slippery roads as it can create
rapid changes in tyre traction
(wheel spinning), so that you
could lose control of the vehicle.
Do not use the system when the
spare wheel is in use.
179
●
After a sudden lane change, the
system needs a certain time to
detect the next preceding
vehicle. So if a new vehicle is
detected, the system may
accelerate instead of braking.
The adaptive cruise control does
ignore the oncoming traffic.
The adaptive cruise control does
not consider pedestrians and
animals for braking and driving
off.
The adaptive cruise control calculates
a predicted path based on the
centrifugal force. This predicted path
considers the current bend
characteristic, but cannot consider a
future bend change. The system may
lose the current vehicle ahead or
consider a vehicle which is not in the
actual lane. This can happen when
entering or exiting a bend or if the
bend gets stronger or weaker. If it no
180
Driving and operating
longer detects any vehicle ahead,
then control indicator A will
extinguish.
If the centrifugal force is too high in a
bend, the system slows down the
vehicle slightly. This braking level is
not designed to avoid spinning-off the
bend. The driver is responsible for
reducing the selected speed before
entering a bend and in general to
adapt the speed to the road type and
to existing speed limits.
Motorways
On motorways, adapt the set speed
to the situation and the weather.
Always consider that adaptive cruise
control has a limited visibility range, a
limited braking level and a certain
reaction time to verify if a vehicle is on
the driving path or not. Adaptive
cruise control may not be able to
brake the vehicle in time to avoid a
collision with a much slower vehicle or
after a lane change. This is
particularly true while driving fast or if
the visibility is reduced due to weather
conditions.
While entering or exiting a motorway,
adaptive cruise control may lose the
vehicle ahead and accelerate up to
the set speed. For this reason,
decrease the set speed before the
exit or before the entry.
Vehicle path changes
If another vehicle enters your driving
path, adaptive cruise control will first
consider the vehicle when it is
completely in your path. Be ready to
take action and depress the brake
pedal, if you need to brake more
quickly.
Hill considerations
9 Warning
Do not use the adaptive cruise
control on steep hill roads.
System performance on hills depends
on vehicle speed, vehicle load, traffic
conditions and the road gradient. It
may not detect a vehicle in your path
while driving on hills. On steep hills,
you may have to use the accelerator
pedal to maintain your vehicle speed.
When going downhill you may have to
brake to maintain or reduce your
speed.
Note that applying the brake
deactivates the system.
Driving and operating
Fault
In the event of a fault with the adaptive
cruise control, you are alerted by the
illumination of a warning light and the
display of a message in the
instrument panel, accompanied by an
audible signal.
The adaptive cruise control may not
operate correctly if traffic signs do not
comply with the Vienna Convention
on Road Signs and Signals.
Have the system checked by a dealer
or a qualified workshop.
As a safety measure, do not use the
system if the brake lights are faulty.
Forward collision alert
The forward collision alert may help to
avoid or reduce the harm caused by
front-end crashes.
The forward collision alert uses the
front camera in the windscreen to
detect a preceding vehicle directly
ahead, in your path.
If a vehicle directly ahead is
approached too quickly, a warning
chime and alert in the Driver
Information Centre is provided.
9 Warning
Forward collision alert is just a
warning system and does not
apply the brakes. When
approaching a vehicle ahead too
rapidly, it may not provide you
enough time to avoid a collision.
The driver accepts full
responsibility for the appropriate
following distance based on traffic,
weather and visibility conditions.
The complete attention of the
driver is always required while
driving. The driver must always be
ready to take action and apply the
brakes.
181
Activation
Forward collision alert detects
vehicles and operates automatically
at all speeds between 5 km/h and
85 km/h. The system detects

System limitations
Forward collision alert is designed to
warn on vehicles only, but may react
also to other objects.
In the following cases, forward
collision alert may not detect a vehicle
ahead or sensor performance is
limited:
● driving on winding or hilly roads
● driving during nighttime
● weather limits visibility, such as
fog, rain, or snow
● the sensor in the windscreen is
blocked by snow, ice, slush, mud,
dirt etc.
● the windscreen is damaged or
affected by foreign objects, e.g.

Active emergency braking
Active emergency braking can help to
reduce the damage and injury from
crashes with vehicles, pedestrians
and obstacles directly ahead, when a
collision can no longer be avoided
either by manual braking or by
steering. Before the active
emergency braking applies, the driver
is warned by the forward collision
alert or the front pedestrian protection
alert.
Driving and operating
Forward collision alert 3 181
Front pedestrian protection 3 185
The feature uses various inputs (e.g.
camera sensor, brake pressure,
vehicle speed) to calculate the
probability of a frontal collision.
9 Warning
This system is not intended to
replace the driver responsibility for
driving the vehicle and looking
ahead. Its function is limited to
supplemental use only to reduce
the vehicle speed before a
collision.
The system may not react to
animals. After a sudden lane
change, the system needs a
certain time to detect the next
preceding vehicle.
The driver must always be ready

and steer to avoid collisions.
183
Functionality
Emergency automatic braking
Active emergency braking is
equipped with a front camera and
operates in forward gear above
walking speed up to 85 km/h. The
system detects stationary vehicles
only if the speed does not exceed
80 km/h.
A precondition is that active
emergency braking is not deactivated
in the vehicle personalisation menu
3 118.
After activation of brake preparation
system and just before the imminent
collision, this function automatically
applies limited braking to reduce the
impact speed of the collision or
prohibit a crash.
If active emergency braking is
applied, m flashes in the instrument
cluster.
Depending on the situation, the
vehicle may automatically brake
moderately or hard.
Front automatic braking can only
occur if a vehicle or a pedestrian
ahead is detected.
Forward collision alert 3 181
Front pedestrian protection 3 185
Below a speed of 30 km/h,
emergency automatic braking may
slow down the vehicle to a complete
stop. If the speed exceeds 30 km/h,
emergency automatic braking
reduces the speed. However, the
driver must apply the brake.
If deactivated, m illuminates in the
instrument cluster and a warning
message is displayed in the Driver

184
Driving and operating
Emergency automatic braking may
slow the vehicle to a complete stop to
try to avoid a potential crash.
● Automatic transmission: If the
vehicle comes to a complete
stop, automatic braking is
maintained for up to two
seconds. Keep the brake pedal
depressed to prevent the vehicle
from starting off again.
● Manual transmission: If the
vehicle comes to a complete
stop, the engine may stall.
Operation of the function may be felt
by a slight vibration in the brake

9 Warning
Emergency automatic braking is
an emergency crash preparation
feature and is not designed to
avoid crashes. Do not rely on the
system to brake the vehicle.
Emergency automatic braking will
not brake outside of its operating
speed range and only responds to
detected vehicles and
pedestrians.
System limitations
In some cases, the active emergency
braking system may provide an
automatic braking in situations that
seem to be unnecessary, for instance
in parking garages, due to traffic signs
in a curve or due to vehicles in
another lane. This is normal
operation, the vehicle does not need
service. Firmly apply the accelerator
pedal to override the automatic
braking if the situation and the
surroundings permit.
In the following cases, active
emergency braking performance is
limited:
● Driving on winding or hilly roads.
● Detecting all vehicles, especially
vehicles with a trailer, tractors,
muddy vehicles, etc.
● Detecting a vehicle when
weather limits visibility, such as in
fog, rain, or snow.
● Driving during nighttime.
● The windscreen is damaged or
affected by foreign items, e.g.
stickers.
Complete attention is always required
while driving, and you should be
ready to take action and apply the

Lane keep assist
Lane keep assist helps to avoid
crashes due to unintentional lane
departures. A front camera located at
the top of the windscreen observes
the lane markings between which the
vehicle is driving. If the vehicle
approaches a lane marking, the
steering wheel is gently turned to
position the vehicle back into the lane.
The driver will then notice a turning
movement of the steering wheel. Turn
steering wheel in same direction, if
system steers not sufficient. Turn
steering wheel gently into opposite
direction, if lane change is intended.
When the system steers to correct the
trajectory of the vehicle, a flashes
yellow in the instrument cluster.
A warning message in the Driver
Information Centre accompanied by a
warning chime alerts the driver when
immediate driver´s action is required.
Unintended lane departure is not
assumed by the system when the turn
lights are operated and during 20 s
after turn lights have been switched
off.
Note

9 Warning
Always keep your attention on the
road and maintain proper vehicle
position within the lane, otherwise
vehicle damage, injury or death
could occur.
Lane keep assist does not
continuously steer the vehicle.
The system may not keep the
vehicle in the lane or give an alert,
even if a lane marking is detected.
The steering of the lane keep
assist may not be sufficient to
avoid a lane departure.
The system may not detect handsoff driving due to external
influences like road condition and
surface and weather. The driver
has full responsibility to control the
203
vehicle and is always required to
keep the hands on the steering
wheel while driving.
Using the system while towing a
trailer or on slippery roads could
cause loss of control of the vehicle

Driver alert
The driver alert system monitores the
driving time and the vigilance of the
driver. Monitoring the vigilance of the
driver is based on the trajectory
variations of the vehicle compared to
the lane markings.
The system includes a driving time
alert combined with driver drowsiness
detection.
9 Warning
The system cannot replace the
need for vigilance on the part of
the driver. Taking a break is
recommended as soon as feeling
tired or at least every two hours.
Do not take the steering wheel
when feeling tired.
204
Driving and operating
Activation or Deactivation
The system can be activated or
deactivated in the vehicle
personalisation 3 118.
The state of the system stays in
memory when the ignition is switched
off.
Driving time alert
The driver gets notified by a pop-up
reminder symbol € in the Driver
Information Centre simultaneously
with an acoustic alert if the driver has
not taken a break after 2 hours of
driving at a speed above 65 km/h. The
alert is repeated hourly until the
vehicle is stopped, no matter how
vehicle speed evolves.
The counting of driving time alert is
reset if one of the following conditions
is met:
● The vehicle has been stationary
for more than 15 minutes with the
engine running.
● The ignition has been switched
off for a few minutes.
● The driver's seat belt has been
unfastened and the driver's door
is open.
Note
If the vehicle speed drops below
65 km/h, the system is paused. The
driving time is counted again once
the speed is above 65 km/h.
Driver drowsiness detection
The system monitors the driver's level
of vigilance. A camera at the top of the
windscreen detects variations in
trajectory compared to the lane
markings. This system is particularly
suited to fast roads (speed higher
than 65 km/h).
If the trajectory of the vehicle
suggests a certain level of
drowsiness or inattention by the
driver, the system triggers the first
level of alert. The driver is notified by
a message and an audible signal is
given.
After three first level alerts, the
system triggers a new alert with a
message, accompanied by a more
pronounced audible signal.
In certain driving conditions (poor
road surface or strong winds), the
system may give alerts independent
of the driver's level of vigilance.
The driver drowsiness detection is
reinitialised when the ignition has
been switched off for a few minutes or
the speed remains below 65 km/h for
a few minutes.

to the engine and fuel system).
Note
The only Diesel additives authorised
for use are those that meet the
B715000 standard.
Low temperature operation
The use of B20 or B30 fuel meeting
standard EN16709 is possible in your
Diesel engines. However, this use,
even occasional, requires strict
application of the special servicing
conditions referred to as "Arduous
conditions".
For more information, contact a
dealer or a qualified workshop.
At temperatures below 0 °C, some
diesel products with biodiesel blends
may clog, freeze or gel, which may
affect the fuel supply system. Starting
and engine operation may not work
properly. Make sure to fill winter
grade diesel fuel at ambient
temperatures below 0 °C.
Arctic grade diesel fuel can be used
in extreme cold temperatures below
-20 °C. Using this fuel grade in warm
or hot climates is not recommended
and may cause engine stalling, poor
starting or damage on the fuel
injection system.
Refuelling
9 Danger
Before refuelling, switch off
ignition and any external heaters
with combustion chambers.
Follow the operating and safety
instructions of the filling station
when refuelling.
9 Danger
Fuel is flammable and explosive.
No smoking. No naked flames or
sparks.
If you can smell fuel in your
vehicle, have the cause of this
remedied immediately by a
workshop.
A label with symbols at the fuel filler
flap is indicating the allowed fuel
types. In Europe the pump nozzles of
the filling stations are marked with
these symbols. Refuel only the
allowed fuel type.
Driving and operating
Caution
In case of misfuelling, do not
switch on ignition.
Fuel filler flap is located at left rear
side of vehicle.
Petrol and diesel refuelling
Depending on the version, place the
key in the lock and unlock the cap.
To open, turn the cap slowly
anticlockwise.
207
Caution
Wipe off any overflowing fuel
immediately.
To close, turn the fuel filler cap
clockwise until it clicks.
Close the flap and allow it to engage.
Fuel filler cap
Only use genuine fuel filler caps.
Diesel-engined vehicles have special
fuel filler caps.
If the vehicle is equipped with an
electronic key system, the fuel filler
flap can only be opened if the vehicle
is unlocked. Depending on the
version, release the fuel filler flap by
pushing the flap or pulling at the right
bottom corner.
The fuel filler cap can be attached to
the hook on the fuel filler flap.
Place the nozzle in straight position to
the filler neck and press with slight
force to insert.
To refuel, switch on pump nozzle.
After the automatic cut-off, the tank
can be topped up by operating the
pump nozzle a maximum of two more
times.
208
Driving and operating
Trailer hitch
General information
Only use towing equipment that has
been approved for your vehicle.
Entrust retrofitting of towing
equipment to a workshop. It may be
necessary to make changes that
affect the cooling system, heat
shields or other equipment.
The bulb outage detection function for
trailer brake light cannot detect a
partial bulb outage e.g. in case of four
bulbs with a power of 5 W each, the
function only detects lamp outage
when only a single 5 W lamp remains
or none remain.
Fitting of towing equipment could
cover the opening of the towing eye.
If this is the case use the coupling ball
bar for towing. Always keep the
coupling ball bar in the vehicle to have
it on hand if needed.
Driving characteristics and
towing tips
Before attaching a trailer, lubricate
the coupling ball. However, do not do
so if a stabiliser, which acts on the
coupling ball, is being used to reduce
snaking movements.
During trailer towing do not exceed a
speed of 80 km/h. A maximum speed
of 100 km/h is only appropriate if an
oscillation damper is used and the
permissible gross trailer weight does
not exceed the vehicle’s curb weight.
For trailers with low driving stability
and caravan trailers, the use of an
oscillation damper is strongly
recommended.
If the trailer starts snaking, drive more
slowly, do not attempt to correct the
steering and brake sharply if
necessary.
When driving downhill, drive in the
same gear as if driving uphill and
drive at a similar speed.
Adjust tyre pressure to the value
specified for full load 3 265.
Trailer towing
Trailer loads
The permissible trailer loads are
vehicle and engine-dependent
maximum values which must not be
exceeded. The actual trailer load is
the difference between the actual
gross weight of the trailer and the
actual coupling socket load with the
trailer coupled.
The permissible trailer loads are
specified in the vehicle documents. In
general, they are valid for gradients
up to 12%.
The permissible trailer load applies
up to the specified incline and at sea
level. Since engine power decreases
as altitude increases due to the air
becoming thinner, therefore reducing
climbing ability, the permissible gross
train weight also decreases by 10%
for every 1000 metres of altitude. The
gross train weight does not have to be
reduced when driving on roads with
slight inclines (less than 8%, e.g.
motorways).
Driving and operating
The permissible gross train weight
must not be exceeded. This weight is
specified on the identification plate
3 257.
Vertical coupling load
The vertical coupling load is the load
exerted by the trailer on the coupling
ball. It can be varied by changing the
weight distribution when loading the
trailer.
The maximum permissible vertical
coupling load is specified on the
towing equipment identification plate
and in the vehicle documents.
Always aim for the maximum vertical
coupling load, especially in the case
of heavy trailers. The vertical coupling
load should never fall below 25 kg.
Rear axle load
When the trailer is coupled and the
towing vehicle fully loaded, the
permissible rear axle load (see
identification plate or vehicle
documents) may be exceeded by
60 kg, the gross vehicle weight rating
must not be exceeded. If the
permissible rear axle load is
exceeded, a maximum speed of
100 km/h applies.
209
1. Move the lever to the rear
position.
Towing equipment
Depending on version the vehicle can
be fitted with a detachable or a fixed
coupling ball bar.
Type A
Caution
When operating without a trailer,

when a coupling ball bar is fitted
correctly. If the coupling ball bar
does not engage correctly, seek
the assistance of a workshop.
Dismounting coupling ball bar
1. Disconnect the trailer plug.
2. Unfasten the breakaway stopping
cable.
3. Remove the trailer.
5. Move the lever of the coupling ball
bar to the front position.

Trailer stability assist
2. Pull the lever and open the towing
ring.
If the system detects snaking
movements, engine power is reduced
and the vehicle / trailer combination is
selectively braked until the snaking
ceases. While system is working keep
steering wheel as still as possible.
Trailer stability assist is a function of
the Electronic Stability Control 3 165.

least every 14 days and before any
long journey. Do not forget the spare
wheel. This also applies to vehicles
with tyre pressure monitoring system.
Tyre pressure 3 265.
The tyre pressure information label
on the left door frame indicates the
original equipment tyres and the
correspondent tyre pressures.
The tyre pressure data refers to cold
tyres. It applies to summer and winter
tyres.
Always inflate the spare tyre to the
pressure specified for full load.
Incorrect tyre pressures will impair
safety, vehicle handling, comfort and
fuel economy and will increase tyre
wear.
Tyre pressures differ depending on
various options. For the correct tyre
pressure value, follow the procedure
below:
1. Identify the engine identifier code.
Engine data 3 262.
2. Identify the respective tyre.
The tyre pressure tables show all
possible tyre combinations 3 265.
For the tyres approved for your
vehicle, refer to the EEC Certificate of
Conformity provided with your vehicle
or other national registration
documents.
Vehicle care
The driver is responsible for correct
adjustment of tyre pressure.
9 Warning
If the pressure is too low, this can
result in considerable tyre warmup and internal damage, leading to
tread separation and even to tyre
blow-out at high speeds.
9 Warning
For specific tyres the
recommended tyre pressure as
shown in the tyre pressure table
may exceed the maximum tyre
pressure as indicated on the tyre.
Never exceed the maximum tyre
pressure as indicated on the tyre.
Temperature dependency
The tyre pressure depends on the
temperature of the tyre. During
driving, tyre temperature and
pressure increase. Tyre pressure
values provided on the tyre
information label and tyre pressure
chart are valid for cold tyres, which
means at 20 °C.
The pressure increases by nearly
10 kPa for a 10 °C temperature
increase. This must be considered
when warm tyres are checked.
Tyre deflation detection
system
The tyre deflation detection system
continually checks the rotation speed
of all four wheels and warns on low
tyre pressure condition once vehicle
is driving. This is achieved by
comparing tyre rolling circumference
with reference values and further
signals.
If a tyre loses pressure the control
indicator w illuminates, a warning
chime is given and a warning
message is displayed in the Driver
Information Centre.
In this case reduce speed, avoid
sharp cornering and strong braking.
Stop at next safe opportunity and
check tyre pressure.
Control indicator w 3 108.
233
After adjusting tyre pressure initialise
system to extinguish the control
indicator and restart system.
Caution
Deflation detection system warns
just about low tyre pressure
condition and does not replace
regular tyre maintenance by the
driver.
In case of a system malfunction a
message is displayed in the Driver
Information Centre. Set correct tyre
pressure and reinitialise system. If the
failure continues to be displayed,
contact a workshop. The system is
inoperable when ABS or ESC has a
malfunction or a temporary spare
wheel is used. Once the road tyre has
been refitted, check the tyre pressure
with cold tyres and initialise the
system.
System initialisation
After tyre pressure correction or
wheel change, the system must be
initialised to learn new circumference
reference values:
234
Vehicle care
1. Always ensure that all four tyres
have correct tyre pressure
3 265.
2. Apply parking brake.
3. Initialise the deflation detection
system: If the vehicle has a
graphic info display, press F for
three seconds. If the vehicle has a
colour info display, the
initialisation is done in the vehicle
personalisation 3 118.
4. Reset is confirmed by pop-up
indication.
After initialisation system
automatically calibrates to new tyre
pressures during driving. After longer
drive the system will adopt and
monitor new pressures.
Always check tyre pressure with cold
tyres.
System has to be reinitialised when:
● Tyre pressure has been changed
● Load condition has been
changed
● Wheels have been swapped or
exchanged
The system will not warn
instantaneously on a tyre blow out or
a rapid deflation. This is due to
required calculation time.
Tread depth
Check tread depth at regular
intervals.
Tyres should be replaced for safety
reasons at a tread depth of 2-3 mm
(4 mm for winter tyres).
For safety reasons, it is
recommended that the tread depth of
the tyres on one axle should not vary
by more than 2 mm.
The legally permissible minimum
tread depth (1.6 mm) has been
reached when the tread has worn
down as far as one of the tread wear
indicators (TWI). Their position is
indicated by markings on the
sidewall.
If there is more wear at the front than
the rear, swap round front wheels and
rear wheels periodically. Ensure that
the direction of rotation of the wheels
remains the same.
Vehicle care
Tyres age, even if they are not used.
We recommend tyre replacement
every six years.
Changing tyre and wheel
size
If tyres of a different size than those
fitted at the factory are used, it may be
necessary to reprogramme the tyre
deflation detection system and make
other vehicle modifications.
Tyre deflation detection system
3 233.
Have the label with tyre pressures
replaced.
9 Warning
The use of unsuitable tyres or
wheels may lead to accidents and
will invalidate the vehicle
operating permit.
Wheel covers
235
Tyre chains
Wheel covers and tyres that are
factory approved for the respective
vehicle and comply with all of the
relevant wheel and tyre combination
requirements must be used.
If the wheel covers and tyres used are
not factory approved, the tyres must
not have a rim protection ridge.
Wheel covers must not impair brake
cooling.
9 Warning
Use of unsuitable tyres or wheel
covers could lead to sudden
pressure loss and thereby
accidents.
Vehicles with steel wheels: When
using locking wheel nuts, do not
attach wheel covers.
Tyre chains are only permitted on the
front wheels.
Always use fine mesh chains that add
no more than 9 mm to the tyre tread
and the inboard sides (including chain
lock).
9 Warning
Damage may lead to tyre blowout.
Tyre chains are permitted on all tyres
sizes allowed for the vehicle.
236
Vehicle care
Temporary spare wheel
The use of tyre chains is not permitted
on the temporary spare wheel.
Tyre repair kit
Minor damage to the tyre tread can be
repaired with the tyre repair kit.

A vehicle with a discharged vehicle
battery can be started using jump
leads and the vehicle battery of
another vehicle.
●
9 Warning
Be extremely careful when starting
with jump leads. Any deviation
from the following instructions can
lead to injuries or damage caused
by battery explosion or damage to
the electrical systems of both
vehicles.
9 Warning
Avoid contact of the battery with
eyes, skin, fabrics and painted
surfaces. The fluid contains
sulphuric acid which can cause
injuries and damage in the event
of direct contact.
●
Never expose the vehicle battery
to naked flames or sparks.

●
●
●
●
A discharged vehicle battery can
already freeze at a temperature
of 0 °C. Defrost the frozen battery
before connecting jump leads.
Wear eye protection and
protective clothing when
handling a battery.
Use a booster battery with the
same voltage (12 V). Its capacity
(Ah) must not be much less than
that of the discharged vehicle
battery.

vehicle may automatically brake
during towing.
Switch the selector lever to neutral.
Release the parking brake.
Caution
Never tow a vehicle equipped with
All Wheel Drive (AWD) with the
front or rear tyres on the road. If
you tow a vehicle equipped with
AWD while the front or rear tyres
are rolling on the road, the drive
system in the vehicle could be
severely damaged. When towing
vehicles equipped with AWD, all
four tyres must not be in contact
with the road.
Caution
Towing another vehicle
Drive slowly. Do not drive jerkily.
Excessive tractive force can
damage the vehicle.
When the engine is not running,
considerably more force is needed to
brake and steer.
To prevent the entry of exhaust gases
from the towing vehicle, switch on the
air recirculation and close the
windows.
Vehicles with automatic transmission:
The vehicle must be towed facing
forwards, not faster than 80 km/h nor
further than 100 km. In all other cases
and when the transmission is
defective, the front axle must be
raised off the ground.
Seek the assistance of a workshop.
After towing, unscrew the towing eye.
Insert cap with the flange into the
recess and fix cap by pushing.
Wrap a cloth around the tip of a flat
screwdriver, for example, to prevent

247
Appearance care
Exterior care
Locks
The locks are lubricated at the factory
using a high quality lock cylinder
grease. Use a de-icing agent only
when absolutely necessary, as this
has a degreasing effect and impairs
lock function. After using a de-icing
agent, have the locks regreased by a
workshop.
Washing
The paintwork of your vehicle is
exposed to environmental influences.
Wash and wax your vehicle regularly.
When using automatic vehicle
washes, select a programme that
includes waxing.
Bird droppings, dead insects, resin,
pollen and the like should be cleaned
off immediately, as they contain
aggressive constituents which can
cause paint damage.
248
Vehicle care
If using a vehicle wash, comply with
the vehicle wash manufacturer's
instructions. The windscreen wiper
and rear window wiper must be
switched off. Remove antenna and
external accessories such as roof
racks etc.
If you wash your vehicle by hand,
make sure that the insides of the
wheel housings are also thoroughly
rinsed out.
Wax painted parts of the vehicle
regularly.
Clean edges and folds on opened
doors and the bonnet as well as the
areas they cover.
Clean bright metal mouldings with a
cleaning solution approved for
aluminium to avoid damages.
Caution
Always use a cleaning agent with
a pH value of 4 to 9.
Do not use cleaning agents on hot
surfaces.
Do not clean the engine compartment
with a steam-jet or high-pressure jet
cleaner.
Thoroughly rinse and leather-off the
vehicle. Rinse leather frequently. Use
separate leathers for painted and
glass surfaces: remnants of wax on
the windows will impair vision.
Have the door hinges of all doors
greased by a workshop.
Do not use hard objects to remove
spots of tar. Use tar removal spray on
painted surfaces.
Exterior lights
Headlight and other light covers are
made of plastic. Do not use any
abrasive or caustic agents, do not use
an ice scraper, and do not clean them
dry.
Polishing and waxing
Wax the vehicle regularly at the latest
when water no longer beads.
Otherwise, the paintwork will dry out.
Polishing is necessary only if the paint
has become dull or if solid deposits
have become attached to it.
Paintwork polish with silicone forms a
protective film, making waxing
unnecessary.
Plastic body parts must not be treated
with wax or polishing agents.
Windows and wiper blades
Switch off wipers before handling in
their areas.
Use a soft lint-free cloth or chamois
leather together with window cleaner
and insect remover.
When cleaning the rear window from
inside, always wipe in parallel to the
heating element to prevent damage.
For mechanical removal of ice, use a
sharp-edged ice scraper. Press the
scraper firmly against the glass so
that no dirt can get under it and
scratch the glass.
Clean smearing wiper blades with a
soft cloth and window cleaner.
Remove dirt residues from smearing
wiper blades by using a soft cloth and
window cleaner. Also make sure to
remove any residues such as wax,
insect residues and similar from the
window.
Vehicle care
Ice residues, pollution and continuous
wiping on dry windows will damage or
even destroy the wiper blades.
Glass panel
Never clean with solvents or abrasive
agents, fuels, aggressive media e.g.
paint cleaner, acetone-containing
solutions, acidic or highly alkaline
media or abrasive pads.
Wheels and tyres
Do not use high-pressure jet
cleaners.
Clean rims with a pH-neutral wheel
cleaner.
Rims are painted and can be treated
with the same agents as the body.
Paintwork damage
Rectify minor paintwork damage with
a touch-up pen before rust forms.
Have more extensive damage or rust
areas repaired by a workshop.
Underbody
Some areas of the vehicle underbody
have a PVC undercoating while other
critical areas have a durable
protective wax coating.
After the underbody is washed, check
the underbody and have it waxed if
necessary.
Bitumen / rubber materials could
damage the PVC coating. Have
underbody work carried out by a
workshop.
Before and after winter, wash the
underbody and have the protective
wax coating checked.
Liquid gas system
9 Danger
Liquid gas is heavier than air and
can collect in sink points.
Take care when performing work
at the underbody in a pit.
249
For painting work and when using a
drying booth at a temperature above
60 °C, the liquid gas tank must be
removed.
Do not make any modifications to the
liquid gas system.
Towing equipment
Do not clean the coupling ball bar with
a steam-jet or high-pressure jet
cleaner.
Interior care
Interior and upholstery
Only clean the vehicle interior,
including the instrument panel fascia
and panelling, with a dry cloth or
interior cleaner.
Clean the leather upholstery with
clear water and a soft cloth. In case of
heavy soiling, use leather care.
The instrument cluster and the
displays should only be cleaned using
a soft damp cloth. If necessary use a
weak soap solution.
250
Vehicle care
Clean fabric upholstery with a
vacuum cleaner and brush. Remove
stains with an upholstery cleaner.
Clothing fabrics may not be
colourfast. This could cause visible
discolourations, especially on lightcoloured upholstery. Removable
stains and discolourations should be
cleaned as soon as possible.
Clean seat belts with lukewarm water
or interior cleaner.
Caution
Close Velcro fasteners as open
Velcro fasteners on clothing could
damage seat upholstery.
The same applies to clothing with
sharp-edged objects, like zips or
belts or studded jeans.
Plastic and rubber parts
Plastic and rubber parts can be
cleaned with the same cleaner as
used to clean the body. Use interior
cleaner if necessary. Do not use any
other agent. Avoid solvents and petrol
in particular. Do not use highpressure jet cleaners.

Confirmations
Confirmation of service is recorded in the Service and warranty booklet. The date and mileage is completed with the stamp
and signature of the servicing workshop.
Make sure that the Service and warranty booklet is completed correctly as continuous proof of service is essential if any
warranty or goodwill claims are to be met, and is also a benefit when selling the vehicle.
Service and maintenance
Recommended fluids,
lubricants and parts
Recommended fluids and
lubricants
Only use products that meet the
recommended specifications.
9 Warning
Operating materials are
hazardous and could be
poisonous. Handle with care. Pay
attention to information given on
the containers.
Engine oil
Engine oil is identified by its quality
and its viscosity. Quality is more
important than viscosity when
selecting which engine oil to use. The
oil quality ensures e.g. engine
cleanliness, wear protection and oil
aging control, whereas viscosity
grade gives information on the oil's
thickness over a temperature range.
255
Dexos is the newest engine oil quality
that provides optimum protection for
petrol and diesel engines. If it is
unavailable, engine oils of other listed
qualities must be used.
Recommendations for petrol engines
are also valid for Compressed Natural
Gas (CNG), Liquified Petroleum Gas
(LPG) and Ethanol (E85) fuelled
engines.
Select the appropriate engine oil
based on its quality and on the
minimum ambient temperature
3 259.
Use of engine oils for all petrol
engines with only ACEA quality is
prohibited, since it can cause engine
damage under certain operating
conditions.
Select the appropriate engine oil
based on its quality and on the
minimum ambient temperature
3 259.
Topping up engine oil
Engine oil viscosity grades
The SAE viscosity grade gives
information of the thickness of the oil.
Multigrade oil is indicated by two
figures, e.g. SAE 5W-30. The first
figure, followed by a W, indicates the
low temperature viscosity and the
second figure the high temperature
viscosity.
Select the appropriate viscosity grade
depending on the minimum ambient
temperature 3 259.
Caution
In case of any spilled oil, wipe it up
and dispose it properly.
Engine oils of different manufacturers
and brands can be mixed as long as
they comply with the required engine
oil quality and viscosity.
Additional engine oil additives
The use of additional engine oil
additives could cause damage and
invalidate the warranty.
256
Service and maintenance
All of the recommended viscosity
grades are suitable for high ambient
temperatures.
Coolant and antifreeze
Use only organic acid type-long life
coolant (LLC) antifreeze approved for
the vehicle. Consult a workshop.
The system is factory filled with
coolant designed for excellent
corrosion protection and frost
protection down to approx. -28 °C. In
cold regions with very low
temperatures the factory filled coolant
provides frost protection down to
approx. -37 °C. This concentration
should be maintained all year round.
The use of additional coolant
additives that intend to give additional
corrosion protection or seal against
minor leaks can cause function
problems. Liability for consequences
resulting from the use of additional
coolant additives will be rejected.
Washer fluid
Use only washer fluid approved for
the vehicle to prevent damage of
wiper blades, paintwork, plastic and
rubber parts. Consult a workshop.
Brake and clutch fluid
Over time, brake fluid absorbs
moisture which will reduce braking
effectiveness. The brake fluid should
therefore be replaced at the specified
interval.
AdBlue
Only use AdBlue to reduce the
nitrogen oxides in the exhaust
emission 3 154.

Event data recorders
Electronic control units are installed in
your vehicle. Control units process
data which is received by vehicle
sensors, for example, or which they
generate themselves or exchange
amongst themselves. Some control
units are necessary for the safe
functioning of your vehicle, others
assist you while you drive (driver
assistance systems), while others
provide comfort or infotainment
functions.
The following contains general
information about data processing in
the vehicle. You will find additional
information as to which specific data
is uploaded, stored and passed on to
third parties and for what purpose in
your vehicle under the key word Data
Protection closely linked to the
references for the affected functional
characteristics in the relevant owner's
manual or in the general terms of
sale. These are also available online.
Operating data in the vehicle
Control units process data for
operation of the vehicle.
This data includes, e.g.:
● vehicle status information (e.g.
speed, movement delay, lateral
acceleration, wheel rotation rate,
"seat belts fastened" display)
● ambient conditions (e.g.
temperature, rain sensor,
distance sensor)
As a rule such data is transient, not
stored for longer than an operational
cycle, and only processed on board
the vehicle itself. Control units often
include data storage (including the
vehicle key). This is used to allow
information to be documented
temporarily or permanently on vehicle
condition, component stress,
maintenance requirements and
technical events and errors.
Customer information
Depending on technical equipment
level, the data stored is as follows:
● system component operating
states (e.g. fill level, tyre
pressure, battery status)
● faults and defects in important
system components (e.g. lights,
brakes)
● system reactions in special
driving situations (e.g. triggering
of an airbag, actuation of the
stability control systems)
● information on events damaging
the vehicle
● for electric vehicles the amount of
charge in the high-voltage
battery, estimated range
In special cases (e.g. if the vehicle
has detected a malfunction), it may be
necessary to save data that would
otherwise just be volatile.
When you use services (e.g. repairs,
maintenance), the operating data
saved can be read together with the
vehicle identification number and
used when necessary. Staff working
for the service network (e.g. garages,
manufacturers) or third parties (e.g.
breakdown services) can read the
data from the vehicle. The same
applies to warranty work and quality
assurance measures.
Data is generally read via the OBD
(On-Board Diagnostics) port
prescribed by law in the vehicle. The
operating data which is read out,
documents the technical condition of
the vehicle or individual components
and assists with fault diagnosis,
compliance with warranty obligations
and quality improvement. This data,
in particular information on
component stress, technical events,
operator errors and other faults, is
transmitted to the manufacturer
where appropriate, together with the
vehicle identification number. The
manufacturer is also subject to
product liability. The manufacturer
potentially also uses operating data
from vehicles for product recalls. This
data can also be used to check
customer warranty and guarantee
claims.
Fault memories in the vehicle can be
reset by a service company when
carrying out servicing or repairs or at
your request.
273
Comfort and infotainment
functions
Comfort settings and custom settings
can be stored in the vehicle and
changed or reset at any time.
Depending on the equipment level in
question, these include
● seat and steering wheel position
settings
● chassis and air conditioning
settings
● custom settings such as interior
lighting
You can input your own data in the
infotainment functions for your
vehicle as part of the selected
features.
Depending on the equipment level in
question, these include
● multimedia data such as music,
videos or photos for playback in
an integrated multimedia system
● address book data for use with an
integrated hands-free system or
an integrated navigation system
274
Customer information
● input destinations
● data on the use of online services
This data for comfort and
infotainment functions can be stored
locally in the vehicle or be kept on a
device that you have connected to the
vehicle (e.g. a smartphone, USB stick
or MP3 player). Data that you have
input yourself can be deleted at any
time.
This data can only be transmitted out
of the vehicle at your request,
particularly when using online
services in accordance with the
settings selected by you.
Smartphone integration, e.g.
Android Auto or Apple CarPlay
If your vehicle is equipped
accordingly, you can connect your
smartphone or another mobile device
to the vehicle so that you can control
it via the controls integrated in the
vehicle. The smartphone image and
sound can be output via the
multimedia system in this case. At the
same time, specific information is
transmitted to your smartphone.
Depending on the type of integration,
this includes data such as position
data, day / night mode and other
general vehicle information. For more
information, please see the operating
instructions for the vehicle /
infotainment system.
Integration allows selected
smartphone apps to be used, such as
navigation or music playback. No
further integration is possible
between smartphone and vehicle, in
particular active access to vehicle
data. The nature of further data
processing is determined by the
provider of the app used. Whether
you can define settings, and if so
which ones, is dependent on the app
in question and your smartphone's
operating system.
Online services
If your vehicle has a radio network
connection, this allows data to be
exchanged between your vehicle and
other systems. The radio network
connection is made possible by
means of a transmitter device in your
vehicle or a mobile device provided
by you (e.g. a smartphone). Online
functions can be used via this radio
network connection. These include
online services and applications /
apps provided to you by the
manufacturer or other providers.
Proprietary services
In the case of the manufacturer's
online services, the relevant functions
are described by the manufacturer in
an appropriate location (e.g. Owner's
Manual, the manufacturer's website)
and the associated data protection
information is provided. Personal
data may be used to provide online
services. Data exchange for this
purpose takes place via a protected
connection, e.g. using the
manufacturer's IT systems provided
for the purpose. Collection,
Customer information
processing and use of personal data
for the purposes of preparation of
services take place solely on the
basis of legal permission, e.g. in the
case of a legally prescribed
emergency communication system or
a contractual agreement, or by virtue
of consent.
You can activate or deactivate the
services and functions (which are
subject to charges to some extent)
and, in some cases, the vehicle's
entire radio network connection. This
does not include statutory functions
and services such as an emergency
communication system.
Third party services
If you make use of online services
from other providers (third parties),
these services are subject to the
liability and data protection and usage
conditions of the provider in question.
The manufacturer frequently has no
influence over the content exchanged
in this regard.
Therefore, please note the nature,
scope and purpose of the collection
and use of personal data within the
scope of third party services provided
by the service provider in question.
Radio Frequency
Identification (RFID)
RFID technology is used in some
vehicles for functions such as tyre
pressure monitoring and immobiliser.
It is also used in connection with
conveniences such as radio remote
controls for door locking / unlocking
and starting. RFID technology in Opel
vehicles does not use or record
personal information or link with any
other Opel system containing
personal information.
