A radar sensor continuously scans the area in front of the car. If the car approaches another vehicle from behind, the driver is alerted via sound and light signals. If the risk of a collision increases despite this warning, the brakes are pre-charged to prepare for efficient braking by the driver. Collision Warning with Brake Support can help avoid rear-end impacts or can minimise the effects of this type of collision.
