Daytime driving lights
If the light switch is set to position (light off), the daytime driving lights come on automatically when the ignition is switched on.

If the light switch is set to position , the daytime driving lights come on automatically in bright conditions and when the ignition is switched on.

The daytime driving lights are not active when the light switch is set to position (low beam/ driving light).

Automatic driving light assistant
The automatic driving light assistant is a comfort function. The driving light (low beam) is switched on and off automatically depending on the ambient brightness.

The automatic driving light assistant also controls the daytime driving lights, low beam, Automatic Coming Home lights and the equipmentdependent dynamic cornering light.

The automatic driving light assistant is activated when the light switch is set to the position .

Despite possible support by the driving light assistant, it is the responsibility of the driver to switch on the driving light using the conventional light switch in accordance with the relevant national regulations.

Activating the headlights using the driving light assistant therefore does not absolve the driver of responsibility for correct operation of the driving light.
