Interior rearview mirror

Updated 7/23/2018

The interior rearview mirror can be dimmed with a control in the mirror's lower edge. Alternatively, the rearview mirror dims automatically.

Control for dimming

Manual dimming

Bright light from behind could be reflected in the rearview mirror and dazzle the driver. Use dimming with the dimming control when lights from behind are distracting:

Use dimming by moving the control in towards the passenger compartment.

Return to normal mode by moving the control towards the windscreen.

Automatic dimming*

Bright light from behind is automatically dimmed by the rearview mirror. The control for manual dimming is not available on mirrors with automatic dimming.

The rearview mirror contains two sensors - one forward facing and one rearward facing - that work together to identify and eliminate dazzling light. The forward facing sensor detects ambient light, while the rearward facing sensor detects the light from vehicle headlights behind.


If the sensors are obscured by e.g. parking permits, transponders, sun visors or objects in the seats or in the cargo area in such a way that light is prevented from reaching the sensors, then the dimming function of the interior rearview and door mirrors is reduced.

Automatic dimming is always active while driving, apart from when gearbox reverse position is selected. Dimming sensitivity can be adjusted in three levels and will affect the interior rearview and the door mirrors.


When sensitivity is changed there is no immediately noticeable change in dimming, but the change will be complete after a while.

Settings for this function are set in the centre display:

Press Settings in the top view.

Press My CarMirrors.

Under Auto Dim Mirrors, select Normal, Dark or Light.

Only the rearview mirror with automatic dimming can be equipped with a compass.
