General hints for operating
tailgate
9 Danger
Do not drive with the tailgate open
or ajar, e.g. when transporting
bulky objects, since toxic exhaust
gases, which cannot be seen or
smelled, could enter the vehicle.
This can cause unconsciousness
and even death.
Caution
Before opening the tailgate, check
overhead obstructions, e.g. a
garage door, to avoid damage to
the tailgate. Always check the
moving area above and behind the
tailgate.
Note
The installation of certain heavy
accessories onto the tailgate may
affect its ability to remain open.
Note
The operation of the power tailgate
is disabled under low vehicle battery
conditions. In this case, the tailgate
may not even by manually operable.
Note
With the power tailgate disabled and
all doors unlocked, the tailgate can
only be operated manually. In this
event, manually closing the tailgate
requires significantly greater force.
Note
At low outside temperatures the
tailgate may not open fully by itself.
In this case lift the tailgate manually
to its normal end position.

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 65.
The airbag label is located on both
sides of the front passenger sun visor.
Airbag deactivation 3 61.
Front airbag system
The front airbag system consists of
one airbag in the steering wheel and
one in the instrument panel 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 46.
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.
59
60
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.
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.
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 65. 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
ONV : front passenger airbag is
active
9 Danger
The front passenger airbag system
can be deactivated via a keyoperated switch in the glovebox.
61
Deactivate passenger airbag only
in combination with the use of a
child restraint system, subject to
the instructions and restrictions in
the table 3 65.
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.
62
Seats, restraints
Consult a workshop immediately if
neither of the two control indicators
are illuminated.
Change status only when the vehicle
is stopped with the ignition off.
Status remains until the next change.
Control indicator for airbag
deactivation 3 95.
Child restraints
Child restraint systems
9 Danger
If using a rear-facing child restraint
system on the front passenger
seat, the airbag system for the
front passenger seat must be
deactivated. This also applies to
certain forward-facing child
restraint systems as indicated in
the tables 3 65.
Airbag deactivation 3 61.
Airbag label 3 56.
We recommend a child restraint
system which is tailored specifically to
the vehicle. For further information,
contact your workshop.
Before fastening a child seat adjust
the head restraint 3 45.
When a child restraint system is being
used, pay attention to the following
usage and installation instructions
and also those supplied with the child
restraint system.
Always comply with local or national
regulations. In some countries, the
use of child restraint systems is
forbidden on certain seats.
Child restraint systems can be
fastened with:
● Three-point seat belt
● ISOFIX brackets
● Top-tether
Three-point seat belt
Child restraint systems can be
fastened by using a three-point seat
belt. After fastening the child restraint
system the seat belt has to be
tightened 3 65.
Seats, restraints
ISOFIX brackets
Either a Top-tether strap or a support
leg must be used in addition to the
ISOFIX mounting brackets.
63
In addition to the ISOFIX mounting
brackets, fasten the Top-tether strap
to the Top-tether anchors.
ISOFIX child restraint systems of
universal category positions are
marked in the table by IUF 3 65.
Selecting the right system
i-size child seats and vehicle seats
with i-size approval are marked with
i-size symbol, see illustration.
Fasten vehicle-approved ISOFIX
child restraint systems to the ISOFIX
mounting brackets. Specific vehicle
ISOFIX child restraint system
positions are marked in the ISOFIX
table 3 65.
ISOFIX mounting brackets are
indicated by a label on the backrest.
An i-size child restraint system is an
universal ISOFIX child restraint
system according UN Regulation No.
129.
All i-size child restraint systems can
be used on any vehicle seat suitable
for i-size, i-size table 3 65.
Top-tether anchors
Top-tether anchors are marked with
the symbol : for a child seat.
The rear seats are the most
convenient location to fasten a child
restraint system.
Children should travel facing
rearwards in the vehicle as long as
possible. This makes sure that the
child's backbone, which is still very
weak, is under less strain in the event
of an accident.
Suitable are child restraint systems
that comply with valid UN ECE
regulations. Check local laws and
regulations for mandatory use of child
restraint systems.
64
Seats, restraints
The following child restraints are
recommended for the following
weight classes:
● Group 0, Group 0+:

vehicle type.
Ensure that the mounting location of
the child restraint system within the
vehicle is correct, see following
tables.
Allow children to enter and exit the
vehicle only on the side facing away
from the traffic.
When the child restraint system is not
in use, secure the seat with a seat belt
or remove it from the vehicle.

●
Storage
plate 3 244) and the EC kerb
weight.
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
85 kg. The roof load is the
combined weight of the roof rack
and the load.

LED headlight system contains a
variety of particular LEDs in each
headlight which enables the control of
the adaptive forward lighting
functions.
Light distribution and intensity of light
are variably triggered depending on
the lighting conditions, road type and
driving situation. The vehicle adapts
the headlights automatically to the
situation to enable optimal light
performance for the driver.
Some adaptive forward lighting
functions of the LED headlights can

wide and symmetrical. If the speed is
below 30 km/h, the headlamps are
slightly swiveled to the outside to
allow an earlier recognition of of
pedestrians and objects on each side
of the road. A special beam pattern is
designed to avoid glare for other road
users.
Adverse weather light
Activated automatically at a speed
above 115 km/h. Illumination is
adapted to the higher speed driven on
motorways. If there is no oncoming
traffic, the visibility on the side of the
vehicle is increased. The visibility
range raises from 70 m to 140 m
allowing distant objects to be
recognised across the entire width of
the road.
Corner light
Controlled by wiper or rain sensor.
The wide light distribution – slightly
swiveled to the outside – enables
improved orientation at the edge of
the road. The intensity of the light in
the far distance is increased in order
to recognise objects and markings on
the front passenger road side and
obstacles on the lane despite the
weather condition. By lowering the
reflection on wet roads the oncoming
traffic is less dazzled. Adverse
weather light is activated up to a
speed to 70 km/h.
Town light
Activated automatically at a speed up
to approx. 55 km/h and in situations

Activated at a speed of up to 40 km/h

Lighting
Curve light
Particular LEDs, based on steering
angle and speed, are additionally
triggered to improve lighting in
curves. This function is activated at
speeds from 40 km/h to 70 km/h.
High beam assist
This feature allows the high beam to
function as main driving light at night.
The camera in the windscreen
detects the lights of oncoming or
preceding vehicles. Each LED on
right or left side can be triggered or
faded out particularly according to the
traffic situation. This gives the best
light distribution without dazzling
other road users. Once activated,
high beam assist remains active and
switches high beam on and off
depending on surrounding
conditions. The latest setting of the
high beam assist will remain after the
ignition is switched on again.
High beam assist includes a special
motorway mode. When driving faster
than 115 km/h on motorways, the light
beam becomes smaller to avoid
dazzling of oncoming traffic. When
following vehicles ahead or passing,
dazzling for these vehicles is
reduced.
Activation
Activate the high beam assist by
pressing f. The LED of the button
illuminates if the high beam assist is
activated. High beam is switched on
automatically at a speed above
25 km/h. High beam is switched off at
a speed below 15 km/h, but high
beam assist remains active.

If there are no restrictions detected,
the system switches back to high
beam.
Deactivation

vehicle comes to a standstill within a
certain time.
Emergency operation under
extreme cold temperatures
9 Warning
This emergency operation may
only be carried out in case of
extremely cold temperatures and if
the vehicle is parked on a level
surface.
In countries with extreme cold
temperatures it may be necessary to
park the vehicle without applied
parking brake.
This is an emergency operation to
avoid freezing of the parking brake.
143
Engine exhaust
9 Danger
Engine exhaust gases contain
poisonous carbon monoxide,
which is colourless and odourless
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.
Diesel particle filter
Automatic cleaning process
The diesel particle filter system filters
harmful soot particles out of the
exhaust gases.
The start of saturation of the particle
filter is indicated by the temporary
illumination of % or H,
accompanied by a message in the
Driver Information Centre.
144
Driving and operating
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 particle
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 particle filter
additive level is too low.
The reservoir must be topped-up
without delay. Seek the assistance of
a workshop.
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 3 193, 3 249 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.
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.
Driving and operating
Caution
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
restrictions are a legal requirement.
1. The first possible warning is Top
up emissions additive: Starting
prevented in 2400 km.
When switching on the ignition,
this warning will show up once
briefly with the calculated range.
Additionally, control indicator u
will illuminate and a chime will
sound. Driving is possible without
any restrictions.
When driving, the message is
displayed every 300 km until the
additive tank has been topped-up.
2. The next warning level is entered
with a range below 600 km. The
message with the current range
will always be displayed when
ignition is switched on.
Additionally, control indicator u
will flash and a chime will sound.
Refill AdBlue before entering the
next warning level.
When driving, the message is
displayed every 30 s until the
additive tank has been topped-up.
3. The last warning level is entered
when the AdBlue tank is empty.
Restart of the engine is not
possible. The following warning
message will be displayed:
145
Top up emissions additive:
Starting prevented
Additionally, control indicator u
will flash and a chime will sound.
Refill the tank to a level of at least
5 l of AdBlue, otherwise restarting
of the engine is not possible.
High emission warnings
In the event of a fault with the
emissions control system, different
messages are displayed in the Driver
Information Centre. The messages
and the restrictions are a legal
requirement.
1. If a fault is detected for the first
time, the warning Emissions fault
is displayed.
Additionally, control indicators u,
R and Z will illuminate and a
chime will sound. Driving is
possible without any restrictions.
If it is a temporary fault, the alert

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.
Driving and operating
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.
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.
The fuel filler flap can only be opened
if the vehicle is unlocked.

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 96.
Antilock brake system
Antilock brake system (ABS)
prevents the wheels from locking.
152
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.
Control indicator u 3 97.

Driving and operating
Ride control systems
Electronic Stability Control
and Traction Control system
Electronic Stability Control (ESC)
improves driving stability when
necessary, regardless of the type of
road surface or tyre grip.
As soon as the vehicle starts to
swerve (understeer / oversteer),
engine output is reduced and the
wheels are braked individually.
ESC operates in combination with the
Traction Control system (TC). It
prevents the driven wheels from
spinning.
The TC is a component of the ESC.
Traction Control improves driving
stability when necessary, regardless
of the type of road surface or tyre grip,
by preventing the driven wheels from
spinning.
As soon as the driven wheels starts to
spin, engine output is reduced and
the wheel spinning the most is braked
individually. This considerably
improves the driving stability of the
vehicle on slippery road surfaces.
ESC and TC are operational after
each engine start as soon as the
control indicator b extinguishes.
When ESC and TC operate, b
flashes.

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 stones 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.
ESC off mode 9
The ESC and Traction Control are
deactivated in this mode.
A LED in the button a illuminates.
ESC and Traction Control are
reactivated automatically from
50 km/h or everytime the ignition is
switched on.
Driving and operating
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.
157
Sport mode
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.
Caution
Do not use the other modes on
sand as the vehicle may become
stuck.
Sport mode adapts the settings of
some vehicle systems to a sportier

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 radar 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 a 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.
163
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.
9 Warning
The complete driver attention is

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 3 106.
If the adaptive cruise control is active,
the recognised speed limit will be
displayed in the Driver Information
Centre and MEM illuminates.
In the Driver Information Centre,
speed limit sign is shown in the
display and MEM illuminates for a few
seconds.
Press MEM on the steering wheel to
request saving of the suggested

Adaptive cruise control on
vehicles with automatic
transmission
For vehicles with automatic
transmission, adaptive cruise control
allows to maintain the selected
distance behind a stopping vehicle
until a complete stop is reached.
If the system has stopped your
vehicle behind another vehicle, then
the set speed is replaced by a green
control indicator .. This symbol
notifies, that the vehicle is hold
automatically in stop position.
If the stopped vehicle ahead was
stopped for a longer time and then
begins to move forward, the green
illuminated vehicle ahead control
indicator . will flash and a warning
chime will sound as a reminder to
check traffic before resuming.
When the vehicle ahead drives away,
press the accelerator pedal until
30 km/h and then move the thumb
wheel to SET- or RES+ to resume
adaptive cruise control. If the vehicle
stays stopped for more than five
minutes or if the driver's door is

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.
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 adaptive cruise
control during rain, snow or
heavy dirt, as the radar sensor
can be covered by a water film,
dust, ice or snow. This reduces or
suppresses completely the
visibility. In case of sensor
blockage, clean the sensor
cover.
Do not use the system when the
spare wheel is in use.
167
The system's automatic brake
force does not permit hard braking
and the braking level may not be
sufficient to avoid a collision.
●
●
●
●
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
considers stopped vehicles only
at low speed.
168
Driving and operating
●
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%.
As the radar's field of detection is
quite narrow, it is possible that the
system may not detect:
● vehicles of reduced width, e.g.
motorcycles, scooters
● vehicles not running in the middle
of the lane
● vehicles entering a corner
● vehicles suddenly pulling out
Bends
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
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
Driving and operating
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.
169
The radar unit is located in the middle
of the front bumper.
9 Warning
The radar unit was aligned
carefully during manufacture.
Therefore, in the event of a frontend impact, do not use the system.
The front bumper may appear to
be intact, however the sensor
behind may be affected and react
incorrectly. After an accident,
consult a workshop to verify and
adjust the radar unit position.
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.
Do not use the system if the front
bumper is damaged.
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 and a
radar unit located behind the front
bumper of the vehicle to detect a
vehicle directly ahead, in your path.
170
Driving and operating
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.
Activation
Forward collision alert detects
vehicles and operates automatically
at all speeds between 5 km/h and
140 km/h.

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 3 169 or the front pedestrian
protection alert 3 174.
The feature uses various inputs (e.g.
camera sensor, radar sensor, brake
pressure, vehicle speed) to calculate
the probability of a frontal collision.
171
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
to take action and apply the brakes
and steer to avoid collisions.
Operation conditions
If equipped only with front camera the
active emergency braking operates in
forward gear above walking speed up
to 85 km/h. With radar sensor and
front camera active emergency
braking operates in forward gear in
the range between walking speed
and 140 km/h.
172
Driving and operating
Activation
Emergency automatic braking
A precondition is that forward collision
alert with front camera system is not
deactivated in the vehicle
personalisation menu 3 106.
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. This front automatic braking can
only occur if a vehicle ahead is
detected 3 169. On vehicles with front
pedestrian protection, front automatic
braking can also occur when a
pedestrian ahead is detected 3 174.
Emergency automatic braking may
slow the vehicle to a complete stop to
try to avoid a potential crash. If this
happens, emergency automatic
braking may engage the electric
parking brake to hold the vehicle at a
stop. To release press the electric
parking brake button or firmly press
the accelerator pedal.
Functionality
The system includes:
● brake preparation system
● emergency automatic braking
● forward looking brake assist
● intelligent brake assist (only with
radar sensor)
● forward collision alert
● front pedestrian protection
Brake preparation system
When approaching a vehicle ahead
or a pedestrian so quickly that a
collision is likely, the brake
preparation system slightly
pressurises the brakes. This reduces
the response time when a braking is
required.
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.
Forward looking brake assist
In addition to the brake preparation
system and emergency automatic
braking, the forward looking brake
assist function makes the brake assist
more sensitive. Therefore, pressing
the brake pedal less strongly results
in immediate hard braking. This
function helps the driver brake
quicker and harder before the
imminent collision.
Driving and operating
9 Warning
Active emergency braking is not
designed to apply hard
autonomous braking or to
automatically avoid a collision. It is
designed to reduce the vehicle
speed before a collision. It may not
react to animals. After a sudden
lane change, the system needs a
certain time to detect the next
preceding vehicle.
The complete attention of the
driver is always required while
driving. The driver must always be
ready to take action and apply the
brakes and steer to avoid
collisions.
The system is designed to work with
all occupants wearing their seat belts.
Intelligent brake assist
If the vehicle is equipped with radar
sensor, intelligent brake assist may
be available. Intelligent brake assist
provides a boost to braking when the
brake pedal is quickly applied. The
braking is based on the speed of
approach and distance to a vehicle
ahead.
Minor brake pedal pulsations or pedal
movement during this time is normal
and the brake pedal should continue
to be applied as needed. Intelligent
brake assist will automatically
disengage only when the brake pedal
is released.
9 Warning
Intelligent brake assist may
increase vehicle braking in
situations when it may not be
necessary. You could block the
flow of traffic. If this occurs, take
your foot off the brake pedal and
then apply the brakes as needed.

Front pedestrian protection
Front pedestrian protection may help
to avoid or reduce the harm caused
by front-end crashes with pedestrians
when driving forward.
The system uses the front camera in
the windscreen and a radar unit in the
front bumper to detect a pedestrian
directly ahead in your path.
Front pedestrian protection can
detect and alert to pedestrians in a
forward gear at speeds between
5 km/h and 60 km/h. Additionally front
pedestrian protection can provide a
boost to braking or automatically
brake the vehicle.
During nighttime driving, system
performance is limited.
9 Danger
Front pedestrian braking does not
provide an alert or automatically
brake the vehicle, unless it detects
a pedestrian.
The system may not detect
pedestrians, including children,
when the pedestrian is not directly

Fault
In the event of a fault, a message is
displayed in the Colour Info Display,
accompanied by an acoustic signal.
In the event of a fault in the power
steering, H illuminates and a
message is displayed in the Driver
Information Centre.
9 Warning
Under certain circumstances,
various reflective surfaces on
objects or clothing as well as
external noise sources may cause
the system to fail to detect
obstacles.
Special attention must be paid to
low obstacles which can damage
the lower part of the bumper.
Caution
Performance of the system can be
reduced when sensors are
covered, e.g. by ice or snow.
Performance of the parking assist
system can be reduced due to
heavy loading.
Special conditions apply if there
are taller vehicles in the vicinity
(e.g. off-road vehicles, mini vans,
vans). Object identification and
correct distance indication in the
upper part of these vehicles
cannot be guaranteed.
Objects with a very small reflection
cross-section, e.g. objects of
narrow size or soft materials, may
not be detected by the system.
Parking assist systems do not
detect objects outside the
detection range.
Note
It is possible that the sensor detects
a non-existing object caused by
echo disturbance from external
Driving and operating
acoustic noise or mechanical
misalignments (sporadic false

Driving time alert
The driver gets notified by a pop-up
reminder symbol € in the Driver
Information Centre simultaneously
with a acoustic alert if the driver has
not taken a break after two 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.
Driving and operating
The counting of driving time alert is
reset when the ignition has been
switched off for a few minutes.
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.

System limitations
In the following situations, the system
may not operate properly or even not
operate at all:
● poor visibility caused by
inadequate lighting of the
roadway, falling snow, heavy
rain, dense fog etc.
● dazzle caused by headlamps of
an oncoming vehicles, low sun,
reflections on damp roads,
leaving a tunnel, alternating
shade and light etc.
● windscreen area in front of the
camera covered by dirt, snow,
stickers etc.
● no lane markings detected or
multiple lane markings due to
roadworks
● close vehicles ahead
● winding roads or narrow roads
Only use unleaded fuel that complies
with European standard EN 228 or
E DIN 51626-1 or equivalent.
The engine is capable of running with
fuel that contains up to 10% ethanol
(e.g. named E10).
Use fuel with the recommended
octane rating. A lower octane rating
can reduce engine power and torque
and slightly increases fuel
consumption.
194
Driving and operating
Caution
Do not use fuel or fuel additives
that contain metallic compounds
such as manganese-based
additives. This may cause engine
damage.
Caution
Use of fuel that does not comply to
EN 228 or E DIN 51626-1 or
equivalent can lead to deposits or
engine damage.
Caution
Use of fuel with a lower octane
rating than the lowest possible
rating could lead to uncontrolled
combustion and engine damage.
The engine specific requirements
regarding octane rating are given in
the engine data overview 3 249. A
country-specific label at the fuel filler
flap can supersede the requirement.
In certain countries, the use of a
particular fuel, e.g. a specific octane
rating, may be required to ensure
proper engine operation.
Fuel additives outside Europe
Fuel should contain detergent
additives that help prevent engine
and fuel system deposits from
forming. Clean fuel injectors and
intake valves will allow the emission
control system to work properly.
Some fuel does not contain sufficient
quantities of additive to keep fuel
injectors and intake valves clean.
To make up for this lack of
detergency, add Fuel System
Treatment PLUS to the fuel tank at
every engine oil change or every
10,000 km, whichever occurs first. It
is available at your workshop.
Fuels containing oxygenates such as
ethers and ethanol, as well as
reformulated fuel, are available in
some cities. If these fuels comply with
the previously described
specification, then they are
acceptable to use. However, E85
(85% ethanol) and other fuels
containing more than 15% ethanol
must be used only in FlexFuel
vehicles.
Caution
Do not use fuel containing
methanol. It can corrode metal
parts in the fuel system and also
damage plastic and rubber parts.
This damage would not be
covered by the vehicle warranty.
Some fuels, mainly high octane
racing fuels, can contain an octane
enhancing additive called
methylcyclopentadienyl manganese
tricarbonyl (MMT). Do not use fuels or
fuel additives with MMT as they can
reduce spark plug life and affect
emission control system
performance. The malfunction
indicator light Z may illuminate 3 95.
If this occurs, seek the assistance of
a workshop.
Driving and operating
Fuel for diesel engines
Do not use marine diesel oils, heating
oils, Aquazole and similar dieselwater emulsions. Diesel fuels must
not be diluted with fuels for petrol
engines.
195
Refuelling
Low temperature operation
Only use diesel fuel that complies
with EN 590.
In countries outside the European
Union use Euro-Diesel fuel with a
sulfur concentration below 50 ppm.
Caution
Frequent usage of diesel fuel
containing more than 15 ppm
sulphur will cause severe engine
damage.
Caution
Use of fuel that does not comply to
EN 590 or similar can lead to
engine powerloss, increased wear
or engine damage.
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.
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.
196
Driving and operating
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.
Caution
In case of misfuelling, do not
switch on ignition.
Fuel filler flap is located at right rear
side of vehicle.
The fuel filler flap can only be opened
if the vehicle is unlocked. Release the
fuel filler flap by pushing the flap.
Petrol and diesel refuelling
To open, turn the cap slowly
anticlockwise.
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.
Caution
Wipe off any overflowing fuel
immediately.
Driving and operating
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.
Trailer hitch
General information
Only use towing equipment that has
been approved for your vehicle. If
using non-factory fitted towing
equipment, deactivation of the handsfree tailgate operation may be
required 3 30.
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.
197
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 3 254.
198
Driving and operating
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).
The permissible gross train weight
must not be exceeded. This weight is
specified on the identification plate
3 244.
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 (70 kg) 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
may be exceeded by 60 kg. If the
permissible rear axle load is
exceeded, a maximum speed of
100 km/h applies.

damage. Seek the assistance of a
workshop in the event of damage or
unusual wear.
The towing eye and the chocks are
located in a box below the floor cover
in the load compartment.
Tyre repair kit 3 225.
Winter tyres
Winter tyres improve driving safety at
temperatures below 7 °C and should
therefore be fitted on all wheels.
In accordance with country-specific
regulations, affix the speed sticker in
the driver's field of view.
All tyre sizes are permitted as winter
tyres 3 254.

W : up to 270 km/h
Choose a tyre appropriate for the
maximum speed of your vehicle.
The maximum speed is achievable at
kerb weight with driver (75 kg) plus
125 kg payload. Optional equipment
could reduce the maximum speed of
the vehicle.
Performance 3 250.
222
Vehicle care
Directional tyres
Directional tyres should be mounted
so that they rotate in the correct
direction. The proper rotation
direction is indicated by a symbol
(e.g. an arrow) on the sidewall.
Tyre pressure
Check the pressure of cold tyres at
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 3 254.
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.
The ECO tyre pressure serves to
achieve the smallest amount of fuel
consumption possible.
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 3 249.
2. Identify the respective tyre.
The tyre pressure tables show all
possible tyre combinations 3 254.
For the tyres approved for your
vehicle, refer to the EEC Certificate of
Conformity provided with your vehicle
or other national registration
documents.
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.
Vehicle care
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 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 98.
After adjusting tyre pressure initialise
system to extinguish the control
indicator and restart system.
223
System initialisation
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.
After tyre pressure correction or
wheel change, the system must be
initialised to learn new circumference
reference values:
1. Always ensure that all four tyres
have correct tyre pressure
3 254.
2. Apply parking brake.
3. Press w to reset deflation
detection system.
4. Reset is confirmed by pop-up
indication.
224
Vehicle care
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.
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
speedometer as well as to reinitialise
the tyre deflation detection system
and make other vehicle modifications.
Tyre deflation detection system
3 223.
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.
Vehicle care
Wheel covers
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.
225
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.
Do not remove foreign bodies from
the tyres.
Tyre damage exceeding 4 mm or that
is at tyre's sidewall cannot be repaired
with the tyre repair kit.
Tyre chains are only permitted on the
front wheels.

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.
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.
Vehicle care
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
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.
237
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.
238
Vehicle care
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.
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.
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.
Vehicle care
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.

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.
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
3 246.
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
3 246.
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 3 246.
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.
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 3 144.

Vehicle Identification
Number
The identification plate is located on
the front left or right door frame.
The Vehicle Identification Number
may be embossed on the instrument
panel, visible through the windscreen,
or in the engine compartment on the
right body panel.
Technical data
Information on identification label:
1 : manufacturer
2 : type approval number
3 : vehicle identification number
4 : permissible gross vehicle weight
rating in kg
5 : permissible gross train weight
in kg
6 : maximum permissible front axle
load in kg
7 : maximum permissible rear axle
load in kg
8 : vehicle-specific or countryspecific data
The combined total of front and rear
axle loads must not exceed the
permissible gross vehicle weight. For
example, if the front axle is bearing its
maximum permissible load, the rear
axle can only bear a load that is equal
to the gross vehicle weight minus the
front axle load.
The technical data is determined in
accordance with European
Community standards. We reserve
the right to make modifications.

Vehicle data recording
and privacy
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.
Operating data in the vehicle
Control units process data for
operation of the vehicle.
261
This data includes, for example:
● Vehicle status information (e.g.
wheel rotation rate, speed,
movement delay, lateral
acceleration, "seatbelts
fastened" display),
● Ambient conditions (e.g.
temperature, rain sensor,
distance sensor).
Most of this data is volatile and is
processed only in the vehicle itself,
and not beyond the operating time.
Moreover, many control units include
data storage device (amongst others
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.
The following information, for
example, is stored:
● System component operating
states (e.g. fill level, tyre
pressure, battery status),
● State of charge of the high
voltage battery, estimated range
(in the case of electric vehicles),
262
●
Customer information
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.
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, the operating
data saved can be read together with
the vehicle identification number and
used if necessary. Staff working for
the service net-work (e.g. garages,
manufacturers) or third parties (e.g.
breakdown services) can read the
data from the vehicle. Services
include repair services, maintenance
processes, warranty cases 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 has been 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 needs operating data
from vehicles for product recalls.
Fault memories in the vehicle can be
reset by a service company when
carrying out servicing or repairs.
Comfort and infotainment
functions
Comfort settings and custom settings
can be stored in the vehicle and
changed 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,
● 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
Customer information
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.
263
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.
Services of the manufacturer
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,
264
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 the eCall 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. In
particular, this does not include
statutory functions and services such
as eCall.
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.

Radio Frequency
Identification (RFID)
RFID technology is used in some
vehicles for functions such as tyre
pressure monitoring and ignition
system security. It is also used in
connection with conveniences such
as radio remote controls for door
locking / unlocking and starting, and
in-vehicle transmitters for garage
door openers. RFID technology in
Opel vehicles does not use or record
personal information or link with any
other Opel system containing
personal information.
