More detailed information
Changes may have been made since these images and films were produced.
The assistance system's warning zone extends approx. 3.5 m to the right/left of the vehicle and 3 m beyond the vehicle.
The warning function also includes vehicles which are moving into the warning zone as a result of lane-changing from the next-but-one lane to the lane alongside the vehicle. Overtaking vehicles are indicated immediately after entering the monitoring zone. Vehicles which have just been overtaken are indicated approx. 1.5 s after entering the zone. This avoids continuous flashing of the indicators when overtaking a line of vehicles and suppresses an acoustic warning when the vehicle moves back into its lane with the indicator on.
