INTELLIGENTE NOTBREMSFUNKTION (IEB)

WARNING

The Intelligent Emergency Braking (IEB) system may not react to slow moving vehicles. Always drive with due care and attention. Driving without due care an attention greatly increases the risk of an accident.

WARNING

IEB does not react to stationary vehicles or vehicles that are not travelling in the same direction as the vehicle. Always drive with due care and attention. Driving without due care an attention greatly increases the risk of an accident.

WARNING

In some circumstances, warnings and automatic braking may not occur. An example of this includes if the distance to the vehicle ahead is very small. Another example includes when carrying out a collision avoidance manoeuvre by making large steering wheel and pedal movements. Always drive with due care and attention. Driving without due care an attention greatly increases the risk of an accident.

WARNING

IEB uses the same radar sensor as the adaptive cruise control system and the forward alert function. The same limitations of performance apply.

Intelligent Emergency Braking (IEB) is only fitted on vehicles with an adaptive cruise control system. The system functions even if adaptive cruise control and forward alert are switched off.

The purpose of the IEB system is to reduce the impact speed with a slower vehicle ahead when a collision becomes unavoidable.

The IEB system is available at all speeds.

If an imminent risk of a collision occurs, an audible warning is given. If a collision becomes unavoidable, the IEB system applies the brakes at up to maximum pressure. After the IEB system has activated, the instrument panel displays the message IEB System Was Activated. The system is inhibited from further operation until reset by a retailer/authorised repairer.

NOTES

The distance required to slow or stop the vehicle is dependent on the condition of the vehicle's tyres and the current road surface.

The instrument panel displays the message IEB Not available if the radar sensor becomes blocked, e.g., by snow or heavy rain. The instrument panel also displays the message IEB not available if there is a fault in the system. The vehicle can still be driven. The braking system still operates but without IEB assistance. If the radar sensor is not considered to be blocked, consult a retailer/authorised repairer.
