Unique functions - PCC

26880:30902|You can have one of two different key systems, the key and remote control 31033:33593|or the Personal Car Communicator. 38478:41404|The PCC has some really clever functions. 41769:45400|When you are in range and press the I-button the car communicates with you. 46315:48000|Green light means the car is locked. 48248:50703|The yellow light says it's unlocked. 51800:54439|This red light indicates the alarm has been triggered. 55144:58435|And if the red lights are flashing, there may be someone in the car!

Keyless drive (only PCC)

1960:5146|Any key system can be equipped for keyless drive. 5303:9091|You will appreciate this feature even before you enter the driver seat. 11808:15282|With the keyless drive all you have to do is approach the car. 17346:22831|With the remote in your pocket, the car recognize you when you enter a 1,5 meter radius. 25240:27899|And the doors unlock instantly when you pull the handle.

Steering wheel

1147:4296|The first thing you want to do is to adjust the steering wheel. 5080:9233|Just pull this lever and adjust the wheel up or down, in or out. 9546:14980|Then you will adjust your seats. This is a little different depending on what seats you have. 15084:18480|Please show me if you have a manual seat or a power seat.

Mechanical seat

0:2403|You have chosen the manual seats. 2821:8150|Adjustment is really simple. Just pull this bar to move it forward or backward. 10710:17867|Raise or lower the front of the seat by pulling up or pressing down on this and move the backrest with this. 18468:21289|Move the seat up or down with this handle. 23144:25704|The lumbar support is adjusted here.

That's it. 28360:32156|Now, this setting is activated every time this key and remote is used. 32444:35526|This means you can have individual settings for different keys. 36623:39784|It's really convenient if you share the car with someone else.

Starting the engine

21916:25861|With the keyless drive you can keep your key and remote in your pocket 26148:29675|and all you have to do is to press the brake and press the starter button quickly. 30850:34324|Starting is just slightly different if you don't have the keyless drive. 34455:39810|As you can see there is a slot beside the start button. That's where you insert the key, like this. 41586:45165|It unlocks the steering wheel and powers up the radio if it's on. 45635:49266|To remove the key you simply press it again and it ejects. 51043:53786|Start the engine by pressing the brake and the start button. 54648:58226|To stop the engine, just press the stop button until the engine stops.

High idle speed

444:2063|Listen to the high idle speed. 2324:7732|When you hear the engine revving at cold start it's a feature that makes the exhausts cleaner and less harmful. 8385:10788|This can go on for several minutes if it's really cold.

Parking assistance*

38:5642|I know some people don’t like parking in tight spots, but the park assist makes a big difference. 6217:7678|I’ll put the gear in reverse. 8176:13688|The park assist has a display in the center console showing you where an obstruction is detected. 14288:19226|When the obstruction bar becomes solid you are within 30 cm of the obstacle. 20453:25573|We hear a pulsing tone from the rear speakers, indicating an obstruction behind the car. 25998:31085|And it’s within one point five meters. I’ll back up and you should listen. 32104:37877|When it changes to a solid tone we are 30 cm from the obstacle. That’s close enough.

Rain sensor (option)

1436:5198|It's a good idea to always activate the rain sensor when there is a risk for rain. 5668:7862|This way you don't have to bother with the wipers. 8672:13583|There is even a symbol in the main instrument for it. Makes it easy to see if it's on or off. 15777:19918|You might want to make an extra wipe now and then. Just flip the stalk upward. 20297:25182|But if you flip it downward you override the rain sensor and you have to activate it again.

Clock and trip meter

1828:3996|Let's have a look at how to set the clock. 6817:10501|You set it by turning this knob left or right. That's it. 12382:15124|The same button is used to set the two trip meters. 15412:21002|A short press toggles between the two. A long press reset the current trip meter.

Trip computer

1332:6112|In the center of the displays you have information about fuel quantity and outside temperature. 6556:11337|This display is also used when setting the adaptive cruise control and using the trip computer. 13583:17293|You find the trip computer by turning the outer wheel on the left stalk. 19565:25260|There is one function that you might want to know more about, the distance to empty tank. 26044:31059|The distance is calculated from the average fuel consumption during the last 30 kilometers. 31294:35970|This means that if you start driving more aggressively it might not be totally accurate.

914:6034|When you fill petrol (gas) you will have to open the fuel cap cover from inside the car. 6321:7627|It's done right here. 8855:14158|There is also an indication in the main instrument showing that the fuel cap is located on the right side of the car.
