Steering assistance at risk of collision

The Collision avoidance assistance function is designed to help the driver reduce the risk of the car leaving its lane unintentionally and/or colliding with another vehicle or obstacle by actively steering the car back into its lane and/or swerving.

The Collision avoidance assistance function consists of three subfunctions:

  • Steering assistance upon risk of run-off
  • Steering assistance upon risk of head-on collision
  • Steering assistance upon risk of rear-end collision*

After automatic engagement, the driver display indicates that this has occurred via a text message:

  • Collision avoidance assistance Automatic intervention

Note

It is always the driver who decides how much the car should steer – the car can never take command.
