Front fog lamps and cornering lights*

The front fog lamps are activated manually when driving in fog and automatically when reversing in order to complement the reversing light.

If the car is fitted with cornering lights*, the front fog lamps come on automatically in dull daylight or darkness in order to light up the area diagonally in front of the car.

Regulations on the use of fog lamps vary from country to country.

Cornering lights*

The front fog lamps can include the cornering lights function, which temporarily illuminates the area diagonally in front of the car in the direction the steering wheel is turned on a sharp bend, or in the direction shown by the direction indicators.

The function is activated in weak daylight or darkness when the stalk switch's rotating ring is in the P5-1707 Symbol AUTO or P5-1507 Symbol low beam position and the speed of the car is lower than approx. 30 km/h (approx. 20 mph).

In addition, both cornering lights are switched on as a supplement to the reversing lamp during reversing. They are extinguished when the car drives forward again.
