Lane Departure Warning (LDW) - function

Updated 7/23/2018

Lane Departure Warning is one of the functions in the Driver Alert System - sometimes also referred to as LDW (Lane Departure Warning).

The function is intended for use on motorways and similar major roads in order to reduce the risk of the vehicle accidentally leaving its own lane in certain situations.

Certain settings can be made for the Lane Departure Warning function.

Off & On

LDW is engaged or disengaged using a button on the centre console. An indicator lamp in the button illuminates when the function is switched on.

This function is complemented in the combined instrument panel with intuitive graphics in different situations.

Personal preferences

Settings are made from the centre console's screen via the menu system in MY CAR. For a description of the menu system, see MY CAR.

Select from the options:

  • On at start-up - The function enters standby mode every time the engine is started. Otherwise the same value as when the engine was switched off is obtained.
  • Increased sensitivity - The sensitivity increases, an alarm is triggered earlier and fewer limitations apply.
