Speed reduction option with assistance at risk of collision
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.
