Retractable Rear Spoiler
The rear spoiler improves driving stability at high speeds.
Depending on the vehicle speed and the position of the slide/tilt roof, the rear spoiler extends automatically at above approx. 75 mph (120 km/ h) and retracts again below approx. 50 mph (80 km/h).
If the automatic control system fails, the warning message "Spoiler failure" appears on the multi-function display.
