Innovative and easy to operate – Comfort Access, including contactless opening of the tailgate, allows you to open the doors of your car and start the engine without having to use the car key. The key, which may be in your trouser pocket or briefcase, is automatically recognised as soon as you approach your car.
Once the door has been automatically unlocked, you can get in and start the engine by pressing the Start/Stop button. This optional equipment includes contactless opening of the tailgate. A short wave of the foot just below the middle of the rear bumper triggers an impulse that activates the remote opening of the luggage compartment. Sensors installed at different heights on the rear bumper are used to detect the person trying to open the compartment. Access authorisation is only granted if the system detects that you have the key with you. Once this has been established, the luggage compartment unlocks automatically and the tailgate swings open without even being touched.
Functional reliability is guaranteed thanks to key authentication. Objects lying under the vehicle – or even animals wandering about under the bumper – cannot interfere with the system.
