Using direction indicators
The car's direction indicators are operated with the left-hand stalk switch. The direction indicator lamps flash three times or continuously, depending on how far up or down the stalk switch is moved.
Rear fog lamp
When visibility is reduced by fog the rear fog lamp can be used so that other road users can detect the vehicle in front at an early stage.
Active bending lights
Active bending lights are designed to provide maximum illumination in bends and junctions. Cars with LED* have active bending lights.
Approach light duration
Approach lighting consists of position lamps, lighting in outer handles*, number plate lighting, interior roof lighting and floor lighting.
The position lamps are switched on with the rotating ring on the stalk switch.
Passenger compartment lighting
The passenger compartment lighting is activated/deactivated with the buttons in the overhead controls above the front seats and the rear seat/rear seats*.
Daytime running lights
The daytime running lights are switched on when the rotating ring on the stalk switch is in position , or as well as when the car's electrical system is in ignition position II or the engine is running. For the position, this only applies in daylight. In other conditions, dipped beam is switched on instead.
Adapting the beam pattern from the headlamps
If the car is equipped with active LED headlamps and the Active main beam function is used, then the headlamp pattern must be reset when changing from right to left-hand traffic, and vice versa.
With the steering wheel stalk switch's rotating ring in position, and with the car's electrical system in ignition position II or the engine running, dipped beam is activated automatically in poor light conditions.
The brake light automatically comes on during braking.
Use the light controls in the left-hand stalk switch to activate external lighting. Use the headlamp control in the instrument panel to adjust headlamp levelling* and the brightness of the interior lighting.
