Sensor fields for park assist system*

If the car is equipped with the Park Assist System then the distance is shown in the Park Assist camera's 360° view with coloured fields for each sensor that registers an obstacle.

Sensor fields backwards and forwards

The fields for the front and reversing sensors change colour as the distance to the obstacle decreases – from yellow through orange to red.
Field colour reverseDistance in metres (feet)
Yellow0.6-1.5 (2.0-4.9)
Orange0.3–0.6 (1.0–2.0)
Red0-0.3 (0-1.0)
Field colour forwardsDistance in metres (feet)
Yellow0.6–0.8 (2.0–2.6)
Orange0.3–0.6 (1.0–2.0)
Red0-0.3 (0-1.0)

For red sensor fields, the pulsating acoustic signal changes over to a constant tone.

The sensor fields on the 360° symbol only show the direction to an obstacle. They do not show the distance to the obstacle.

Sensor field to the sides

Warning signals depend on the intended route of the car. When the steering wheel is turned, therefore, there may also be a warning for obstacles diagonally in front of or diagonally behind the car, not just straight ahead or directly behind.

  2. P5-Icon red circle 2Obstacle sector in the car's intended route forwards – depending on steering wheel angle
  3. P5-Icon red circle 3Sector with red field colour and intensively pulsing tone
  4. P5-Icon red circle 4Right-hand side rear sensor field
  5. P5-Icon red circle 5Obstacle sector in the car's intended route in reverse – depending on steering wheel angle.
The colour of the side fields changes with reduced distance to the obstacle – from amber to red.
Colour of side fieldsDistance in metres (feet)
Yellow0,25–0,9 (0,8–3,0)
Red0–0,25 (0–0,8)

In the case of red sensor fields, the acoustic signal changes from pulsing to intensively pulsing.
