If the speed difference between the driver's car and the obstacle is greater than the following specified speeds, the automatic brake function cannot prevent a collision but it can mitigate the consequences of a collision.
For a vehicle in front, brake assistance can reduce the speed by up to 60 km/h (37 mph).
For a cyclist, brake assistance can reduce the speed by up to 50 km/h (30 mph).
For a pedestrian, brake assistance can reduce the speed by up to 45 km/h (28 mph).
In the event of a risk of a collision with a large animal, brake assistance can reduce the car's speed by up to 15 km/h (9 mph).
The brake function for large animals is primarily intended to reduce the force of the impact at higher speeds and is most effective at speeds above 70 km/h (43 mph) but less effective at lower speed.
