Make a single, forward kicking motion with your foot under the centre of the rear bumper, then take a step back without touching the bumper. A sensor detects the motion and opens or closes the tailgate. You’ll hear a brief beep to indicate that it worked. One of the car’s keys must be within range (about one metre/three feet) behind the vehicle, even if the vehicle is already unlocked.*

* Please note that due to the global shortage of semiconductors from suppliers, the hands-free tailgate foot sensor may not be available on your vehicle at delivery, but it is possible to be retrofitted free of charge at a later date.
