  • your car must turn to the left in markets with right-hand traffic (or to the right in left-hand traffic).
  • The oncoming vehicle must have its headlamps switched on.
The function may have difficulty in assisting the driver if, for example:
  • there are slippery conditions and stability control ESC intervenes.
  • the oncoming vehicle is detected too late.
  • the oncoming vehicle is obscured by something.
  • the oncoming vehicle has headlamps switched off.
  • the oncoming vehicle drives in an unpredictable manner, e.g. abruptly changes lanes at a late stage.
