Cornering & fog lights for NA

With my 2012 with Lighting package, I have seen no evidence that I have working cornering lights or fog lights. I'm beginning to wonder if our NA ones are dumbed down. Here's what the international manual says about the Intelligent Lighting System.

"Switching the Intelligent Light System on/off

Press the or button on the steering wheel to select the Settings menu.

Press the or button to select the Light submenu.

Press to confirm.

Press or to select the Intelligent Light System function.

If the Intelligent Light System function has been switched on, the cone of light and the symbol in the multifunction display are shown in red.

Press the button to save the setting.

When you activate Intelligent Light System, you activate the following functions:

- motorway mode
- active light function
- cornering light function
- extended range foglamps
- off-road lights"

My car does not have a function to activiate the Intelligent Light System, only Adaptive High Beam Assist. That could be just a different nomenclature for the same thing, though the light lenses themselves have the former title. I also wonder if we get the fog lights. No change in my front lights when I turn on the rear fog light. Curious. YYZ - any input?

A couple things to note: The left stalk needs to be pushed forward for AHBA to work, even if activated in the menu; also, you may need to be moving for some of these to work.

Have you tried putting the car in drive, releasing the handbrake and ,at night, driving to your gate or entrance and turning the steering wheel to the right and checking if the cornering fog light activated? I think the system doesn't switch on when in park from what I remember with the ML350 I used to drive a month ago.
