Using smart liftgate
To activate the Smart Liftgate with Auto Open, go to Setup → Vehicle → Door → Smart Liftgate with Auto Open on the infotainment system.
2. Detect and Alert
If you are positioned in the detecting area (20~40 inches [50~100 cm] behind the vehicle) carrying a smart key, the hazard warning lights will blink and chime will sound to alert you the smart key has been detected and the liftgate will open.
Do not approach the detecting area if you do not want the liftgate to open. If you have unintentionally entered the detecting area and the hazard warning lights and chime starts to operate, leave the detecting area with the smart key. The liftgate will stay closed.
3. Automatic Opening
After the hazard warning lights blink and the chime sounds 6 times, the smart liftgate will open.
