Using sensors on either side of the front and rear bumpers, together with parking distance sensors front and rear, Park Assist actively helps you 90 degree park, back into a park and get in and out of a parallel park.
A radar sensor detects when the distance of vehicles in front are critical. It visually and audibly alerts you, as well as prepares the car to be more responsive for emergency braking.
The cruise control system with Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) lets you set the speed you want to travel and the gap you want to allow between you and the car in front. Using a radar sensor, the car then maintains your speed and your distance. In doing so it makes life easier for the driver, particularly on long journeys, and reduces the risk of exceeding the speed limit.
When cornering, it responds to the load relief at the front wheel on the inside of a corner. This improves traction and reduces the tendency to understeer.
Lane Assist is a lane departure warning system that is designed to help reduce the likelihood of the vehicle leaving the road or crossing into on oncoming lane and therefore the risk of accident as a result of driver distraction or a lapse in concentration.
The Lane Assist system monitors the road ahead with the aid of a camera (located near the interior rear-view mirror) which recognises lane markings and evaluates the position of the vehicle. If the vehicle starts to leave the lane, the Lane Assist system takes corrective steering action. If this is not sufficient the driver is warned about the situation by a steering vibration and is asked to take over the steering. Additionally, if no active steering movements by the driver are recognised for longer than approximately 8 seconds, a message will appear in the Multi-Function Display in conjunction with a warning tone. The corrective steering function can be overridden by the driver at any time and the system does not react if the turn indicator is set before crossing a lane marking.
When adaptive lane guidance is active and the system detects both lane markings to the left and right of the vehicle, the function provides permanent assistance while the vehicle is in motion. The system adopts the preferred position within the lane in which the vehicle is travelling. For example, if the vehicle is being driven slightly off-centre in the lane, the system will learn to adopt the new position within a short period of time.
Light Assist provides enhanced comfort and safety on the road by means of automatic high beam control. A camera on the interior mirror observes the traffic above 60 km/h and in complete darkness, Light Assist automatically switches on the high beam headlights. The system detects vehicles travelling ahead, as well as oncoming traffic and automatically dips the headlights before they are dazzled. Automatic alternation between high beam and low beam headlights ensures optimum illumination of the road ahead.
In congested traffic situations, Traffic Jam Assist makes driving significantly more comfortable and helps to avoid typical rear-end collision accidents. The Traffic Jam Assist function combines the driver assistance systems Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) and Lane Assist with adaptive lane guidance.
In a speed range of 0-60km/h, the system automatically controls acceleration, braking, steering and if required, will decelerate to a stop behind a vehicle that is stopping.
Emergency Assist monitors the driving characteristics and recognises, within the limits of the system, if the driver suddenly becomes incapable of driving (due to the vehicle not being controlled).
Emergency Assist detects a lack of activity on the part of the driver and issues repeated visual and acoustic warnings and initiates a quick jolt of the brakes to request the driver to take control of the vehicle.
If the driver remains inactive, the system automatically controls acceleration, braking and steering to slow the vehicle down and keep it in the lane. If there is sufficient stopping distance, the system decelerates the vehicle to a complete stop and switches on the electronic parking brake automatically.
When Emergency Assist is actively controlling the vehicle, the hazard warning lights are switched on and the vehicle performs a slight snaking motion within its lane to warn other road users. Ideally this will prevent a collision, or at least reduce its severity.
Safety is a serious matter. That’s why we put the same focus on safety as we do on smarts and style.
