The convenient EASY-PACK tailgate can be opened, closed and stopped in any position automatically at the push of a button.
This is particularly helpful for shorter people when closing the tailgate. The opening height is additionally limited to reduce the risk of damage.
The tailgate can be opened either via the button on the ignition key, the switch in the driver's door or the release handle on the tailgate. The tailgate can be closed automatically via a switch on the inside of the tailgate or a switch in the driver's door. If any items in the luggage compartment obstruct the tailgate while it is closing, the process will be automatically interrupted.
In some vehicles the automatic closing function can also be activated via the button on the ignition key.
To avoid contact with e.g. the garage door, the EASY-PACK tailgate can be stopped in any position.
If the vehicle has Hands-Free Access the tailgate can be opened, closed and stopped via a movement of the foot in the area below the bumper.
Alternatively, it is also possible to open and closed the tailgate manually.
In some vehicles (e.g. C-Class Estate from September 2014)pulling on the unlatched tailgate automatically triggers the opening motion.
In addition, an opening limiter can be activated via the multifunction menu in the instrument cluster. The tailgate will then open only up to the edge of the roof. For safety reasons, the automatic closing function can only be activated via the switch on the tailgate and will be interrupted automatically should closing be obstructed by load items.
