ADVANCED EMERGENCY BRAKE ASSIST (AEBA)

WARNING

The Advanced Emergency Brake Assist (AEBA) feature may not react to slow-moving vehicles. Always drive with due care and attention. Driving without due care and attention greatly increases the risk of an accident.

WARNING

The AEBA feature does not react to stationary vehicles or vehicles traveling in the opposite direction. Always drive with due care and attention. Driving without due care and attention greatly increases the risk of an accident.

WARNING

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

AEBA prepares the braking system if it detects a collision is imminent. If the driver subsequently presses the brake pedal, full braking force is applied immediately.

AEBA operates at speeds above approximately 5 mph (8 km/h). AEBA still operates if adaptive cruise control and forward alert are switched off.

If forward alert is switched on, AEBA activates after the instrument panel displays the FORWARD ALERT warning. AEBA automatically applies a light braking force. Full braking force is applied immediately when the driver presses the brake pedal.
