  • for smaller vehicles such as motorcycles
  • if more than half of your vehicle has moved into the adjacent lane
  • on roads/lanes with indistinct or no side lane markings
  • outside the speed range 60-140 km/h (37-87 mph)
  • when speed-dependent power steering wheel resistance is working at reduced power – e.g. during cooling due to overheating.

Functionality may also be reduced in other situations, such as:

  • road work
  • winter driving conditions
  • narrow roads
  • poor road surfaces

In these demanding driving conditions, the function may not be able to properly assist the driver. In these situations, it is recommended that it is turned off.

The function uses the vehicle's camera and radar sensor, which has certain general limitations.
