Remote control key
The remote control key locks and unlocks the doors and tailgate. The remote control key needs to be inside the car for it to be started.
Locking and unlocking with the remote control key
The buttons on the remote control key can be used to lock and unlock all doors and the tailgate simultaneously.
Settings for remotely controlled and inside unlocking
It is possible to select different sequences for remotely controlled unlocking.
Unlocking the tailgate with the remote control key
It is possible to unlock just the tailgate by pressing a button on the remote control key.
Locking and unlocking with the detachable key blade
Amongst other things, the detachable key blade can be used to unlock the car from the outside - e.g. if the remote control key's battery has become discharged.
Automatic locking when driving
The doors and tailgate are locked automatically when the car starts to move.
Double lock means that all opening handles are released mechanically when locking from the outside, which makes it impossible to open the doors from the inside.
Setting the max. opening for electrically operated tailgate*
Adjust the max opening of the tailgate, e.g. to make it easier if the car is in a garage with limited space.
Locking and unlocking from inside the car
The doors and tailgate can be locked and unlocked from inside using the central locking controls in the front doors.
Unlocking the tailgate from the inside of the car
The tailgate can be unlocked from inside by pressing the button on the instrument panel.
The tailgate can be locked with the private locking function which prevents it from being opened, e.g. when the car is taken in for service, left at a hotel or similar.
Activating and deactivating private locking
Private locking is activated with a function button in the centre display and an optional PIN code.
Locking and unlocking
The car can be locked and unlocked in several different ways.
Activating and deactivating child safety locks
The child safety lock prevents the rear doors from being opened from inside. With electric child safety locks, power window operation from the rear seat is also prevented.
The car indicates when the car is locked or unlocked. How the indication is given depends on selected settings for lock indication and settings for door mirrors.
Lock indication setting
It is possible to select various options for how the car confirms locking and unlocking in the settings menu in the centre display.
