Is it possible to use the auto parking feature to do a perpendicular park in one manuver instead of two?

If you mean reverse parking into a ‘90 degree parking, rear to curb’ spot, with cars in the spots on either side; the salesguy demo’d it in our car using exactly that scenario. :)

Otherwise, I’m not sure what you mean by ‘perpendicular parking’.

Yes perpendicular to the road aka 90°, not angled or parallel.

I've yet to use the self parking at all. I'm afraid.

I think it have to be in 2 moves to get the distance right.

A great video I've not seen before
Indeed, I've used it many times and had often wondered how to find parks on the right hand side of the road in one way streets. Now I know it's as easy as indicating right :)

Wow I have never seen it do that. Always two moves. I never use it but did a parallel park yesterday showing off to a friend.

It works very well. I am good at reverse parking. Yet, I use this rlfeature a lot on some very tight spaces. It's always virtually mm perfect.
