How the System Works

When the vehicle is shifted into R (Reverse) the front and rear sensors are automatically turned on.

After the vehicle is shifted out of R (Reverse), the rear sensors are turned off and the front sensors stay on until the vehicle is above a speed of 8km/h (5mph).

For the front park assist system to be active again without shifting into R (Reverse), the park assist button next to the shift lever must be pressed. See Turning the System On and Off later in this section.

UFRPA operates only at speeds less than 8 km/h (5 mph).

When the vehicle is in N (Neutral), the system may be active. If the vehicle is in a car wash, the sensors may detect objects in the car wash.

See Turning the System On and Off later in this section to turn the system off.

High-toned beeps from the front speakers are for objects detected near the front bumper. Low-toned beeps from the rear speakers are for objects detected near the rear bumper. The interval between the beeps becomes shorter as the vehicle gets closer to the obstacle.

When the distance is less than 30 cm (12 in) the beeping is a continuous tone for five seconds.

To be detected, objects must be at least 25 cm (10 in) off the ground and below liftgate level. Objects must also be within 1.2 m (4 ft) in front of the vehicle and 2.5m (8 ft) from the rear bumper. This distance may be less during warmer or humid weather.
