The concept

With Active Protection, critical driving situations that might lead to an accident can be detected.

In in these situations, preventative protection measures are automatically undertaken to minimize the risk in the event of an accident as much as possible.

Critical driving situations may include:

▷ Full application of the brakes.
▷ Severe understeering.
▷ Severe oversteering.

With Active Cruise Control with Stop & Go function, impending collisions with vehicles driving ahead or stopped in front of you can also be detected.

The system cannot serve as a substitute Personal responsibility
The system cannot serve as a substitute for the driver's personal judgment of the traffic situation. Adapt speed to traffic situation and drive alertly; otherwise, a risk to safety may result.◀
