Limitations of Rear Collision Warning*

In certain cases, the Rear Collision Warning (RCW)Rear collision warning. may have difficulty helping the driver in the event of a collision risk.

This can, for example, be if:

  • the vehicle approaching from behind is detected too late
  • the vehicle approaching from behind changes lane at the last moment
  • a trailer, bicycle rack or similar is connected to the car's electrical system - the function is then deactivated automatically.

Note

In certain markets, RCW does not give a warning with the direction indicators due to local traffic regulations - in such cases, this part of the function is deactivated.

Note

This function uses the car's radar units, which have certain general limitations.
