Lane Change Assist (LCA)
Lane Change Assist (LCA) warns the driver about vehicles approaching from behind or those in the blind-spot. This applies when overtaking other vehicles and when being overtaken. Integrated warning indicators in both door mirrors light up as soon as a dangerous situation is identified and changing lanes seems essential.

Lack of attention
Even with Lane Change Assist, absolute care and attention on the part of the driver is still required while driving. Ultimately, the driver is still responsible for changing lanes.
Impaired radar sensor vision
The view of the radar sensor can be reduced in tight bends, when approaching crests and in adverse weather conditions (rain, snow, ice, heavy spray). Vehicles will not be detected properly or may not be detected at all.
Vehicles not detected
Lane Change Assist cannot alert you in good time to vehicles approaching at high speed from behind or vehicles that are falling back.
Lane Change Assist does not work in tight corners (curve radius of less than 330 ft (100 m)).
Lane Change Assist only alerts you to approaching vehicles or vehicles in the blind-spot above a driving speed of approx. 20 mph (30 km/h).
