COLLISION PREVENTION ASSIST registers vehicles driving in front and stationary vehicles. At a speed from 30 km/h to maximum speed the distance to the vehicle driving in front will be registered and the upcoming situation will be evaluated. Stationary vehicles are detected within the s\peed range of 30 to 70 km/h. The system works in a distance up to 65m maximum.
The radar unit is located on the right side of the front bumper. When the system recognises a too-close distance or danger of collision an optical signal first occurs, this is followed by an additional acoustic signal. The system does not activate the brake pedal but if the driver does his action is supported by the Brake Assist PRO with higher braking pressure.
A visual warning (control lamp in the instrument cluster) lights up permanently when a too-short distance to the vehicle driving in front is recognised. The warning appears at a speed starting from 30 km/h and only in case of moving objects.
The dynamic collision warning is activated as soon as the vehicle approaches another vehicle at high speed or under strong acceleration. In this case, a visual signal (control lamp in the instrument cluster) as well as an acoustic warning (two warning sounds) occurs.
The COLLISION PREVENTION ASSIST is activated at engine-start. The system can be deactivated via a button on the upper control panel. If the system is deactivated, the instrument cluster flashes a warning message.
Brake Assist PRO is activated within a speed range of 30km/h up to maximum speed and constantly observes the driving conditions. The system cannot be deactivated by the driver. The Brake Assist PRO calculates the ideal brake pressure needed to avoid an accident in case of danger. The Brake Assist PRO supports the driver with stronger brake pressure while braking.
