"IntelliSafe Assist" makes it easier and safer to drive where you want. "IntelliSafe Assist" consists of "Adaptive Cruise Control" (ACC), "Pilot Assist" and "Distance Alert".
Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC)
This is cruise control with an additional function that adapts the speed to a slower vehicle in front. If the vehicle in front slows down, the adaptive cruise control ensures that your car follows the vehicle's speed and if necessary stops it. If the vehicle in front is stationary for less than three seconds, your car will follow the vehicle as soon as it starts again.
The driver can at any time choose to switch off the adaptive cruise control and instead engage the normal cruise control. The system uses a radar unit in the window. When the car is following another vehicle at a speed above 70km/h and the driver notices an imminent overtake by the car's direction indicators, the adaptive cruise control assists. The adaptive cruise control allows you to follow another vehicle at speeds from standstill up to 200 km/h
Adaptive cruise control is supplemented with "Pilot Assist". It not only assists the driver to keep a certain distance from and speed of the vehicle ahead but also, via steering assistance, helps keep the car in the middle of the lane.1 This occurs by the camera and radar unit in the window reading off the car's position in relation to the visible road markings and the vehicle in front. "Pilot Assist" can provide steering assistance from standstill up to 130 km/h.
"Distance Alert" alerts you if the time distance to the vehicle ahead is too short. The function is active at speeds above 30 km/h and only reacts to vehicles in front of your car, driving in the same direction as you.
Facts and advantages
Extremely convenient, relaxing and safe because you do not have to constantly adapt the speed to vehicles in front.
Convenient thanks to automatic support, even when overtaking.
Steering assistance helps the driver stay in lane in the event of monotonous driving situations.
Only applies to cars with automatic gearbox.
"Distance Alert" requires that the car is equipped with a graphic HUD ("Head Up Display").
"IntelliSafe Assist" is standard on all cars except for in the "Americas" region.
Only for countries with radar approval.
Important information about "IntelliSafe" Assist and its functions as well as restrictions can be found in the car's owner's manual.
The driver must always be observant of current traffic conditions and be prepared to intervene if necessary. It is always the driver who is responsible for how the car is controlled and that the correct time distance and speed is maintained, even when "IntelliSafe Assist" is used.
- If the driver lets go of the steering wheel, steering assistance disengages.
