Driving and operating

General information

9 Warning

Forward collision alert is just a

warning system and does not

apply the brakes. When

approaching a vehicle ahead too

rapidly, it may not provide you

enough time to avoid a collision.
The driver accepts full

responsibility for the appropriate

following distance based on traffic,

weather and visibility conditions.
The complete attention of the

driver is always required while

driving. The driver must always be

ready to take action and apply the

brakes.

System limitations

The system is designed to warn of

vehicles only, but may react also to

other objects.

In the following cases, forward

collision alert may not detect a vehicle

ahead or sensor performance is

limited:

● on winding roads
● when weather limits visibility, e.g.

fog, rain, or snow

● when the sensor is blocked by

snow, ice, slush, mud, dirt,

windscreen damage or affected

by foreign items, e.g. stickers

Following distance

indication

changes and warns the driver in the

event of an unintended lane change

via visual and acoustic signals.
Criteria for the detection of an

unintended lane change are:

● No operation of turn lights.
● No brake pedal operation.
● No active accelerator operation

or speeding-up.

● No active steering.

If the driver is performing these

actions, no warning will be issued.
