City Safety™ - operation

City Safety™ is a function for helping the driver to avoid a collision when driving in queues, amongst other things, when changes in the traffic ahead, combined with a lapse in attention, could lead to an incident.

On and Off


The City Safety™ function is always switched on after the engine has been started via key positionI and II.

In certain situations, it may advisable to disable City Safety™, e.g. where leafy branches could sweep over the bonnet and/or windscreen.

After starting the engine, City Safety™ can be switched off. The function can be activated/deactivated in the menu system MY CAR. For a description of the menu system, see MY CAR.

However, the function will be enabled the next time the engine is started, regardless of whether the system was enabled or disabled when the engine was switched off.


The laser sensor also transmits laser light when City Safety™ is disabled manually.
