Warning with braking function

Display

General information

A warning symbol appears in the instrument cluster and in the Head-up Display, where available, if a collision with a detected vehicle is imminent.

Symbol / Meaning

- Danger of collision with
vehicle crossing from the right.

- Danger of collision with
vehicle crossing from the left.

- Danger of collision with
vehicle for which the direction of travel cannot be determined.

Display with prewarning

The respective symbol lights up red: prewarning for vehicles that cross your direction of travel.

Intervene yourself, for instance by braking.

Display with acute warning

The respective symbol flashes red and an acoustic signal sounds: acute warning when vehicles cross your direction of travel.

Brake and make an evasive maneuver, if necessary.

Prewarning

For example, a prewarning is displayed when a danger of collision with a crossing vehicle is detected.

If a prewarning is provided, respond by braking as warranted.

Acute warning with braking function

An acute warning is displayed in the event of an immediate danger of collision with a crossing vehicle.

Intervene in the case of an acute warning. If an acute warning is provided, the system may provide assistance, such as through braking, when there is risk of collision.

Acute warnings may be provided even when there has been no prior warning.

Braking intervention

The warning prompts the driver to intervene.

The system may also assist in braking if there is a risk of collision.

The vehicle can be decelerated to a standstill.

The driver may interrupt the braking intervention function by stepping on the accelerator pedal or by actively moving the steering wheel.

The system's ability to detect objects may be limited in some circumstances. Refer to the information in this Owner's Manual regarding the limitations of the system and actively intervene as warranted.
