Distance Warning*

The Distance Warning1 function can assist the driver to notice that the time interval to the vehicle ahead may be too short.

However, the requirement is that the car is equipped with a Head‐up display to be able to show Distance Warning, which is then displayed with a symbol on the windscreen as long as the time interval to the vehicle ahead is shorter than the preselected value.

Distance warning is active at speeds above 30 km/h (20 mph) and only reacts to the vehicle ahead travelling in the same direction. No distance information is provided for oncoming, slow or stationary vehicles.


  • Distance Alert is only available on cars that can display information on the windscreen with a Head-up Display.
  • Distance warning is deactivated during the time the adaptive cruise control is active.


Distance warning only reacts if the time window to the vehicle ahead is shorter than the preset value – the speed of the driver's vehicle is not affected.


This function can come as either Standard or an Option depending on the market.
