Driving support systems
The car is equipped with different driver support systems which can assist the driver in different situations, either actively or passively.
Safety check of driver support when starting
When you start the car after it has been fully switched off, a safety check of the car's driver support systems is shown in the driver display. The check shows which driver support systems are available in the car and whether they are ready for use.
IntelliSafe - How does driver support give an alert?
If you notice that the car acts in an unexpected way then this may be due to one of the car's safety-related functions being activated.
General speed warning
Speed-dependent steering force
Speed related power steering causes the steering wheel force to increase with the speed of the car so as to be able to give the driver enhanced sensitivity. On motorways the steering is firmer. When parking and at low speed steering is light and requires less effort.
Drive modes when using time interval to vehicles
The driver can select different driving styles for how driver support should maintain the preset time interval to the vehicle ahead.

Auto braking after a collision
