I am really enjoying my IX, but one thing that is bothering me is that I'm not sure I have active steering. On full lock I can't see the rear wheels have changed angle (I know its only degrees).

Is there any indication on the car that active steering is present/working?

I find it's most obvious reverse parking.
Takes about 10 goes to get it in line with the kerb, as you go full lock to pull in the front the back starts heading out.
Could just be my bad driving, but I'm blaming the car 😂
This is definitely correct also as per my experiences :)

It is really a big challenge to have a short margin and to align kerb with active steering during reverse parallel parking.

I've realised what's been causing me concern, but I think it was a sub-conscious 'nag' so I couldn't put my finger on it...

Basically, I have to reverse into my drive. I pull up, put the car into reverse on full lock, and the display shows the guidelines to where the car is going to go.

Without altering the steering wheel, the car understeers and ends way over from the initial guidelines.

Anyone else have the same issue, it may be a software glitch or camera alinement.....

Yes that definitely happens. Its a massive difference. On lock the guidelines are a joke.

Hi,
You probably don't have active steering. I have it and when you turn the front steering wheel it is VERY noticeable - Even from looking out your side view mirrors down at the wheels.
