HI This is a tough one - its says in my manual it pops up at around 80mph but on some websites it says it will come out at around 45mph - but you can manually turn this on - there is a switch underneath the steering wheel column - if it is activated then a picture of a beetle will light up on the control panel. Hope this helps! Cheryl
